New 6RM should update my 5RM... if the new 6RM is higher than my old 5RM

Because if I hit a new 6RM I have certainly set a new 5RM in the process :-) and this should trickle down the line.

If I hit 170 for 6 and my 1,3,5 are all less than 1,3,5 should update to 170 IMO.

    Hey Karin!

    Sorry about the lack of response. Not too sure why this was closed.

    The issue is a sticky situation. While yes, obviously hitting a new 6RM that beats both your 6RM and 5RM previously implies that now your 5RM is higher.

    However, saying that your new 6RM = 5RM is wrong. Because your 5RM is not your 6RM. Your capable of more, and the real solution to the issue it to test your 5RM and get an even MORE accurate score in there :)

    Sorry for the trouble!
