Tuchscherer recommends not spending too much time working above 90% for the level of stress it places on you. Doing the conjugate method kind of gets around that by swapping out lifts.

    If you went with a true 1RM each ME day then it would be an RPE 10

    Swap out assistance lifts frequently. Do sets from doubles to 7. Avoid singles @9.
    Thanks guys. Yeah basically what I've been doing is going for a 1RM PR every Monday, and about every 3 weeks or so I will switch the lifts out. For example right now I'm doing back squat with buffalo bar and 2 weeks from now I'll switch to something like SSB squats.

    The RPE was new to me. I liked it a lot. It certainly helps because you don't always have the same amount of strength/energy everyday for your workout but, it makes you feel like you still did a maximum workout.

    I have a drawing of the RPE system I did a while back. I honestly feel that every good coach/trainer should incorporate the RPE system into their clients training. Or at least a part of it

    I was really nervous going into reading the RPE system for the second time. I read the OP when Pillar first posted it, but because it didn't pertain to me, I didn't absorb it. Now that it will be a part of my program and I read it the second time, if I am understanding it correctly its way more simple than I remember and can't wait to start it up tomorrow!
    Thanks for the write up Pillar, I watched a few video before reading this thinking it would give me a better base on how it worked, your write up made the video explanations seem like rocket science. You did well making it easy for the simpletons like me to understand.

    I can't squander the opportunity, and now owe a commitment to not only myself but Mick and PoB.
    Just wish I had better starting number so my possible log would be more enjoyable for the people who might be interested in it.

    Nobody cares what your numbers are Deezy. Any powerlifter on this board will respect that when I ask for @9 you give it a true 9. A proper triple at 9 will make you want to die but not actually kill you. It's like unicorn dust for your total.

    You sound like a pussy.

    Nobody gives a fuk what you lift. Go bust ass and train hard. People like to see progress. I promise that Dan Green doesn't frequent SI to laugh at your numbers. Anyone who would give you shit over your numbers, probably can't lift their spirits.

    I started with lower numbers just so I could adjust properly to the rpe. I then started making big jumps. it was new to me and I didn't want to screw it up. numbers are nothing. remember, whatever you or I lift, I know that someone out there is lifting a lot less. especially at my gym . lol.
