The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the estimated one repetition maximal value weight training program. Four healthy young male Judo club athletes participated as the subjects in this study for a period of fifty days. This study was based on the research done by Tanaka and Sasahara (１９９４) of the estimated one repetition maximal value weight training program. The training contents was based on three sets of ten repetitions of seventy percent load intensity of one repetition maximal value. The following results were obtained １. It was indicated that all four subjects in all of the categories showed significant increase of one repetition maximal value; ２. The increase in the mean of one repetition maximal value (deleting the categories prone to measurement error) was ten kilograms, a nearly twenty percent increase; ３. A significant difference in increase in the one repetition maximal value was not indicated between individuals; ４. A significant difference in increase in the one repetition maximal value was indicated between categories. The results conclude that there was a possibility of a mean increase of ten kilograms or approximately twenty percent increase in muscle strength (although this muscle strength increase differed by muscle area) by a training period of fifty days, three times a day. Therefore, this weight training program is effective.
