    Thanks. I read the article again and I think I see now. I have been doing the percentage method for 20 years and there is a learning curve. So it is OK for me to estimate a progression in weight but I should see them as just a general suggestion for that day and not hard numbers to reach. I should work up through the warmup while sensing how the weight feels today and judge my RPE off that. Like in the examples A,B,and C near the end of the article.

    Does this sound more like it?

    Progressing lift weights in beginners program

    I am going into my 3rd week in the Beginners Program. This is how I progressed the weight from week 1 to 2. Please let me know if this is correct.

    I plugged my weights that I lifted with an RPE of 8 from week 1 into the Estimated 1RM Calculator. I then added 5-10% to the weight from week 1 and used them for week 2.

    This all worked well except for the squat which I overestimated the weight and had to stop at the second set that was supposed to be an RPE 7 but felt like a 9. So I went on to the next exercise.
Working...
