I asked this question on the facebook page and didn't really get an answer to my questions.

My question is this:

In a given day the RPE looks like this [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] x3 sets. The next week may be 4 sets or 2 sets @8.

My question is do the RPE 6 & 7 even matter? I understand they are there to gauge your RPE 8 but if i go in and just work right up to my RPE 8 and do 3 sets then is that enough stimulus to adapt or is part of the stimulus for the adaption that is necessary taking into account the 6 & 7 as volume as work towards the end goal?

Like if one week RPE [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] x3 sets and the next week is [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] x2 sets and I just do the [email protected] x3 the one week and [email protected] x2 the following week are we still on task? but if you add the sets across like the [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] x3 sets that 5 total sets and [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] x2 sets thats 4 total sets.

I hope that makes sense. I dont know how else to pose the question.

Thanks!
