  • tracking %-based backoffs

    In the template tracking logs, how do you guys track the percentage-based backoff sets in something like the 12-week program? The first 2-3 backoffs feel about like a 6 or 6.5 in the first week, but the log note says only to track RPE 7 and above?

    Side note: maybe an RPE ~6 means my [email protected] is more like @7?

    I just end up logging all of them with their respective RPE. If you take 18% or so off the 1 @ 8, you're working in RPE 6-7 territory for sets <7 reps (approximately). That said, we're just getting in volume with that kind of prescription.

      Thanks for the response, and for the template! The volume has felt awesome at this moderate intensity! Almost GPP'ish as I'm able to keep rest intervals at around 2.5 to 3 minutes. As such the workouts are much quicker than I thought they would be.

      Would you say this 12-week template most accurately represents your training philosophy for strength gainz over the other templates?

        Very glad to hear it. This seems to be the common experience, among people willing to give these methods a try.
