WOD / Tuesday, October 2
Who of our athletes has used the exercise scale while training?? If you have then tomorrow's your day, if you haven't then tomorrow you're going to learn something new! RPE is primarily used in Powerlifting (Back Squat, Bench Press, Deadlift) as a way to gauge the amount of energy you'll put towards a certain exercise. It's not a matter of if it's better than percentage work but just a different approach. Let's get after it tomorrow!
