As your one-rep max is simply the maximum amount of weight you can lift for a single repetition for a particular exercise, it’s an excellent way to determine whether or not you’re getting stronger. In other words, your one-rep max is a rough proxy for muscle growth.

The relationship between muscle gain and strength isn’t perfect and doesn’t work well for comparing progress between two different people, though. For example, just because one person has a higher bench one-rep max than another doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily have a bigger chest, as other factors also influence muscle growth.

What you can count on is that if your one-rep max is going up for a particular exercise, you’re also growing the muscles that are trained by that exercise.
