Maximum Weight Deadlift


I saw that it was a 3RM. Does that mean that the individual being tested can take a add sum of the weight over the repetitions or is the max weight lifted in one repetition?


You choose the weight for the score you want(presently 340 for max) and do three reps with it touch and go.  Bang-Bang-Bang.  No stopping, No resting, No bouncing.


Essentially, you will have to hit a gym and figure out your limitations in order to advise your grader of your desired weight. I wonder, if you initially select for 340lbs and fail the 3rd rep, do you disqualify completely, or do you reset at a lower weight of your discretion?
