RPE/Difficulty For Top Sets
« on: August 09, 2017, 05:24:52 AM »
Hey guys,

How difficult should top sets at a given percentage actually be? I mean I know none are to failure, but about how many reps should be left when it calls for say, 4x2 @ 85%?

Should the last double be a max effort? Or should you have a rep left?

Thanks. So not really ever much more than 9 on a top set.

Something like that.
I dont think my 80% tripples are more than RPE 8, and 85% for a dubble would be around 8-9 depending on fatigue.
