    Ehhh.... Kind of. It somewhat becomes a game of semantics.

    RPE is absolute in terms of perceived force. The mass is subjective.

    % is absolute yes, but only to a theoretical 1rm. You yourself...

    Velocity measurement is something I'll be integrating as soon as I save up a few pennies. I think it will work REALLY well for me since observed bar speed is how I roughly judge my rpe already.

    When referring to pound mass, it's generally abbreviated as lbm. I was speaking of the difference between lb force and kg (mass), which you knew.

    Incorrect. It has zero correlation to %1rm.
    @9 is ~90% of the maximum effort you could possibly put into a given set regardless of the rep range.

    If someone is incapable of applying rpe correctly, then I'd say they need to do a daily max with % sets based on that.

    Yes it would be @9. But that's the exact point. @9 is @9. Period. You wouldn't call it @3 because you could do 400 on a good day.

    All jokes aside, and with all due respect, that comment in itself shows lack of comprehension of RPE.

    IMO the fact that you weren't using it to peak for a deadline buys you a lot of leeway as far as missed-lift days go.
    My only focus in that scenereo would be the days you undershot your ability.
