    Question for you guys who do rp style training.

    For you who like rp style volume ramping, do you log rir every week when going from 4/3 rir at start of the meso to 0 rir in the last week? Or do you only log it for the first week, then add weight, reps and sets from there, without thinking to much about rir.

    I think i read somewhere that you only need to think about rir in the first week (3 rir week) and the weeks after that you dont need to track rir, because if you add some reps or weight, a rir drop will happen anyway.

    You still need to track RIR.

    I think what you’re mentioning was a quick and dirty way to figure out RIR if you’ve never used RIR before.

    You’d eventually hit failure, but it’s not efficient.

    When I’ve used RP style programming, I still needed to track RIR weekly.

    Otherwise you can risk sand bagging yourself
    the latest and greatest in training...or whatever.

    Do you guys use your own split for the programming? Or did you buy the rp male hypertrophy templates?
