Team! We are currently starting a new Powerlifting program and this new cycle will be featuring some changes! First off the training days are going to be shifting a bit, your new training schedule will be set up so your rest day is Wednesday rather than Thursday. This will help us get an extra rest day between your squat and deadlift days during the week. Our Tuesday session will now be a full SBD day (Squat, Bench, Deadlift in the same session). Again, we are making these changes to accommodate the volume and frequency we think works best and also allowing you guys to have adequate recovery between lifts and sessions on a weekly basis. You will also notice some more changes, for instance most of our training is now going to be RPE based, there will still be programming based off your 1RM percentages but the bulk of training...

Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) is simply a subjective measure of how hard you feel you are working during a particular set or exercise. It is a very valuable tool for powerlifters and weightlifters to accurately measure and adjust their training intensity on a set to set, session to session basis. If used properly, incorporating RPE based training will keep you healthier in the long term and ensure you’re not overtraining/undertraining, which can ultimately lead to less injury and more progress in the gym. In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of using RPE, how to build an internal scale for intensity using RPE, and provide tips for implementing RPE into your training programs. Benefits of Using RPE One of the biggest benefits of using RPE is that it allows the athlete to train at the appropriate intensity level for their goals and abilities.
