Hi Doc, hope all is well.

When a lifter has to squat a single @ 8 and it turns out to be a 9 (the e1RM has gone down). What would the lifter lift the next week for that single at 8? Would the lifter calculate an @ 8 based off the preceded 9, or does the lifter reattempts the same weight from the previous week to see if it turns out to be an @ 8 instead of @9.

I've come across this situation not knowing what to do and end up in a loop and not progress.

Thank you so much!
