##### the theoretical jump and reps calculator

The theoretical jump calculator assumes one has an okay amt of reactivity correct?  Because I should have 31in SVJ according to that, but i can only manage 28 SVJ on a good day.

And the reps calculator definitely gives too much credit when you are doing reps higher than 5.

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

It has been said it works best between heights of 5'8 - 6'0...  Other than that I guess you could account for the deviation by adjusting the weight goal to work for if you feel your reactive strength is in place.  You could probably get 30 standing if you were highly motivated.. It says that my standing vert should be 26.5 but I'm 6'3 and I've gotten 32" multiple times...
Goal

windmill consistently/ touch top of the square consistently

weight= 193
height= 6'3 1/2
highest touch= top of the square, which is 11'4

i did 265 x 10, okay form... and got pinned 315 x 2... the reps calculator is off by so much.   265 x 10 = 353 max... 315 x 2 = 324 max, and i couldn't do it...

...for you. it's an estimate generator, and a pretty simple one at that. it ought to go without saying that ymmv.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Not only that but you probably didn't do your warm up sets properly to hit 315x2.
