I mostly use strands in the higher rep ranges, 10r-20r as mentioned by Ayedee but on rare occasions will test myself with a heavier single for fun if I'm in the mood.

Truth be told, bands for heavy singles are not that comfortable to do there's the feeling that if anything goes wrong, it can go wrong in a bad way. having been hit hard in the face once with a handle doesn't help that.

Anyway, I'm curious, does anyone here do max effort reps on a regular basis?

I agree with your first two statements. No, I don't do max pulls w/ bands.

Strand pulling competition is what got me thinking about this. Since that was/is a max effort pull. I've never actually seen people pull competitively and am curious how on the edge it is.

Recently found this guys videos in a post by vegetus. I like what he's doing. The principles can be applied to any mode. 

I do similar stuff with bands.

I've only really used low reps for an overhead press variant, in fact I started with negatives and worked up to a few reps. It worked very well for that, but for max back press for example, the tendency is for one side to push out while the other side remains stationary, there ends up being a lot of shuffling around. It's quite difficult to avoid that and determine a strict max.

I did the press with one end looped under a foot and the other in my opposite hand, and I'd lean over straightening my arm like the old 'bent press' and go up to the top position from there keeping the arm straight.
From there I would begin the negative part of a press. Does that make sense?

Makes sense to me, yes. Thanks.

I have never done low reps, or tried to see what my one rep. max. is on any of the pulls.
