  • Testing Max Lifts in Week 8 of The Bridge?

    Hey all,

    I have made tons of strength gains moving on from LP into RPE with The Bridge. This weekend begins the final week of The Bridge and I noticed a lot of [email protected] lifts concluding the program. I'm so excited about my gains that I'd like to actually test my maxes, in part to put as much weight on the bar as I ever have in my life, but also to see how close my RPE judgement worked out.

    I have two ways I've considered testing my lift maxes, let me know if there is a particular preference one would have.

    1. In week 8 of The Bridge, do [email protected] instead of [email protected] during the workouts.
    2. After week 8, perform a max day, where I test [email protected]'s for DL, Bench, OHP, Squat.

    After this I'll be rolling into the Hypertrophy program, should I rest for a week or just keep lifting?

    Side note: Thanks so much for all the programming, research, and literature this team puts together. It's benefited my physical and mental state in an incredible way.

    I recommend option #2, and following that with a low-stress week (week 1 of The Bridge) before rolling into the hypertrophy template.

    Hi Alex, would you recommend the same approach if one was wrapping up Hypertrophy before running 12 Week (and wanted to test in between)?
