Sometimes you just gotta say fuck it.* . I didn’t feel overly splendid heading into today’s training session. I didn’t feel like a got run over by a Mack truck or anything, but I didn’t feel awesome either. . Closer to the Mack truck, though. . The block @gnrobins has me on of late follows the RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) system. It’s a form of auto regulation, but the idea is to do more work each week. . Last week’s top set ended at 535×3. . My first set this week was 500×3. It wasn’t as “speedy” as I would have liked and I hesitated. . Then I said “fuck it” and slapped on 45 lbs. . No diggidy, no doubt. . * and wear a purple t-shirt.
