  • Repeating final week of first block PB1

    I’m currently running powerbuilding 1 on and off for awhile now.
    I’m at week 5 at the moment and I’m just wondering if it is acceptable to keep repeating week 5 as I’m still increasing weight in my squat and bench and deadlift each week while staying at the prescribed RPE.
    Would it be acceptable to keep repeating week 5 until I can’t add more weight while keeping the rpe the same.
    And then move onto week 6 which is the next block once I overshoot the RPE.
    Thank you

    I think that's a totally reasonable plan, though I wouldn't overshoot the RPE and then move on. Rather, if you're unable to make progress (adding weight) without overshooting, don't overshoot, but do move on.

      Thanks Jordan.

      Currently I’m still adding weight at RPE 8 so will see how long it will continue.
      I’ll move onto week 6 once I stop making progress
