Hi all. I’m aware that the off season chart in the book is a guide, and I understand how it’s laid out, and I do understand the top set explanation. With that being said, I have a question concerning the programing of the main lifts.
Seems like it starts with a weight, (5×5) goes down the next week, (4×4) then de loads (and repeats).
Ex. RPE 6. 5×5- RPE 6. 4×4- De load.
Then week 8 is supposed to beat week 4, but both PRE’s are 7, and the reps and sets are the same (understanding trying to beat by a top set). I’m assuming the ‘beat week 4 by 5-10 lbs in week 7 is the ‘ramping up’ part of the progression.
Just don’t understandwhy week 1&2, for example are both RPE 6, but the reps and sets are lower the second week.
- I hope I’m making sence. Thanks all.
