Week 6, last week of the cycle!

Deadlifts: 1x2 @ RPE 8, 1x4 @ RPE 9, as many as possible for 60 second @ RPE 9 - 5%.
Push press: 1x1 @ RPE 8, 1x4 @ RPE 9, as many as possible for 60 second @ RPE 9 - 5%.
Farmer's Carry (dumbbell): 50lbs each for 140ft, 75lbs each for 70ft, 85lbs each for 70ft.

Felt pretty decent overall given good sleep and food. Definitely a tough week though!

@pseudoramble After a bit of Googling I'm not sure how RPE works. Could you clarify?

Fitness 

@Pawper yeah. Not trying to be super lazy, but I discussed it in a thread here: tech.lgbt/@anathema/1082409322.

The gist of it is that you adjust actual weight lifted based on a subjective factor of how something feels. RPE 6 basically means "I can do this real easy even after the set" and RPE 10 basically means "I cannot possibly do another rep."

@pseudoramble nice - is the 5% is how many met the requirement?

Fitness 

@Pawper ah, the 5% bit I think is just a weird thing the program I'm running now does. Basically it has you do a set at RPE 9, then it says take 5% off of that weight for the next one.

Ex: if I end up in a set where I rate 200lbs as RPE 9, the next set would be 190lbs (200 * .95)

@pseudoramble ah, that makes sense! Thanks for explaining! 😁
