Ok, the more I've examined your theory the less sense it makes to me. My max OHP is 67.5kg: 75% of that would be ~50kg. I can in no way do 20 reps of this, or even close. With bench I'd be doing 75kg and again, not even close. Ditto for every other lift without even getting started on chucking pause sets in there.
And why would anyone know or want to know their 1RM for bicep curls? It's an accessory, not a main lift, and one that's notoriously hard not to cheat on. And people cheat on it like the Dickens anyway, how often have you seen some jackass loading 50kg or what have you onto a barbell and practically throwing their whole body forwards to get it up? I'll admit this can be worth doing to overload the eccentric but it's not a clean lift in any way. I'm inclined to think you are woefully underestimating your 1RMs.
For all the people complaining that SS is a strength program unsuited to the everyday gymgoer, bear in mind that you will still get loads of those gainz you're seeking from it. Moreover when you improve your overall strength you're increasing the total volume you can lift for hypertrophy anyway. And you'll be learning good form which will protect you against injury.
This thread is baffling.
