    @Rapidfail - I've struggled to hit my RPE/RIR guidelines far too often. I'm getting somewhat better at it as I've noticed how big the difference is between a 6 and 8 RPE, a 7 and 9, or even an 8 and...

    January 19, 2021: Spoto Press
    130 pounds - 6 sets x 3 reps

    This moved VERY fast and easy. Feels like I may be able to keep increasing weight each time for a while yet.

    Funny that you're commenting on noticing opposite things with my squat, but both are on point. I'm extended a bit too much at the start of the lift, which then results in getting pitched forward a...

    Huh...that's interesting about the inconsistency on Deadlifts. I have the same thing, except with squats instead of deadlifts, lol. And it's because of exactly what you pointed out Savior - the...

    I see that you're getting plenty of volume in. Always like the idea of super setting rows with bench. I haven't done that in a long time, and probably should since I'm just sitting around wasting...

    Increased from 3 to 4 reps. It was maybe equal, or even just a little bit easier than last time around. Technique was MUCH better than...

    365 pounds x 1 rep [8 RPE]
    315 x 1/1/1

    Was kind of sloppy today. Not sure why, but I just wasn't very focused.
    Top single at 365 felt like a true 8 RPE, and...

    Eli - Good job just getting in some work right now. Anything chest supported is obviously going to allow you to lift far less weight, but I have no idea on what the specific ration would be between...
