  • Warming up for singles followed by sets in The Bridge

    I'm currently in week 5 of The Bridge and looking ahead at week 6. I see there's a number of lifts programmed along the lines of: "Squat w/ belt 1 rep @ 8, 4 rep @ 8 x 3 sets"

    I imagine my warming up to the single to look something like:
    empty bar x 5 reps x 3-4 sets
    95 x 5
    135 x 5
    185 x 3
    225 x 1
    240 x 1
    260 x 1 @ 8

    Should I do additional warmup reps between the single and the sets? Or should I use the percentages in the RPE table to calculate the "expected" 4 @ 8?

    Thanks!

    You don't need any additional warmup reps between the single and sets, no. The latter is a good approach, though I'll sometimes round that calculated number down by 5 lbs or so to avoid overshooting, especially if the sets are programmed "across".
