  • RPE/RIR and PB2 template

    Hi guys,

    From what I understand from reading your pdf from the powerbuilding 2 program is that

    RPE 10 - Max effort
    RPE 9 - 1 rep left
    RPE 8 - 2 reps left

    etc

    However i came across this article (although old) that has it a bit different. For example RPE 8 is around 2--4 reps and seems to incorporate speed/velocity into the equation. So which one is it? and how is RIR different from RPE when basically RIR is how it is being described in the BBMed templates?

    https://www.elitefts.com/education/t...-exertion-rpe/

    Also I did CGBP for 10 reps at RPE 8 i'm pretty sure. The program says repeat 10 reps @8. I kept the same weight, rested 5 minutes but was only able to get 8 reps at RPE 8 for the next set. Should I have dropped the weight? It seems like for higher reps rpe is harder to judge and seems to fall off for me harder.

    We are not affiliated with EliteFTS in any manner and reject their RPE scale in favor of the RPE scale developed by Mike Tuchscherer of RTS.

    RIR is reps in reserve, which Mike T's RPE scale uses to help explain the desired intensity.

    We would have you drop weight to complete the prescribed reps, yes

      That post on elite fts is a direct quote from the Rts manual. Those are infact Mike's own words.

      That's probably where the confusion is coming from here.

          Could be, though that book is 10 years+ old and not updated. Neither BBM or RTS uses any specific velocity recommendation and RPE 8 does not mean 2-4 reps left in the tank.
