First session doing RTS-style autoregulation. Kept rest times under 5 mins. It’s important to keep rest times in check when identifying RPEs. If you rest too long it will throw them off.

Squats caused some low-back fatigue. There’s probably still fatigue built up from my sheiko run which isn’t entirely dissipated. My RPEs were right on for Squats.

On Bench I started to wonder if I might have miss-labeled the first 8 set. I took the last set to failure to test my RPE-identifying ability. I was pretty much dead on. The 3rd rep was a 9. I hit a fourth rep and then failed on the fifth.

Much less hellish than Sheiko was. In fact, I actually felt really good at the end of this session rather than absolutely murdered like I did on Sheiko. I really want to trust my self on RPE identification for Bench. Looking at the log that seems like the proper amount of volume I’ll need on Bench. Maybe muh body just knows?
