  • Going into lockdown again - running the Exercising at Home template

    Hi there,

    We've just been told we're going into lockdown for the next month so gyms are closing. I'm going to run this template in the interim https://www.barbellmedicine.com/blog...rcise-at-home/

    Question around RPE - I assume increasing the reps until I reach the prescribed RPE will have the same training stimulus? For example, performing 8-12 bodyweight squats will be well under RPE8, so I assume I should increase the reps until I reach the required RPE?

    Thanks

    Hey Pat,

    In the article you linked, there are explicit instructions for how to make the exercises selected harder in order to meet the prescribed RPE in the designated rep range. I'd prefer someone do that rather than simply increasing reps outside of the rep ranges listed.
