Hello there!

Just wrapped up with the Stroke lecture – fantastic and thorough review! I had a quick practical question regarding ideal strengthening guidelines outlined in the Pak 2008 article. The article recommends a 60-80% 1RM level of resistance. In the clinical setting, do you typically test the 1 RM of your patients and use this as a guide? If so, how do you calculate it; if not, are there other ways you’ve found useful to help in implementing the appropriate level of resistance?

Thanks so much!
