Squat and Bench Press

5 at RPE-8, then break up 10 more reps

This is a new program for 3-4 weeks. Moving to a 5 rep scheme, but volume will build. This first week you will need to potentially adjust your weight from the 4 rep scheme. It might be slightly less than your 4 rep weight, but maybe not. Lots of people went too light and we are able to do 5 reps and 5 reps for the break up of 10. That is an indicator that the weight wasn’t a true RPE-8. That’s ok the first week, but that will indicate that you can possibly go up next week. If it’s done right it usually looks like 4 reps, then 3 reps and then 3 reps getting to a total of 10. I want you to only have one hard set. The break up sets should be challenging but not returning to RPE-8 again.
