How can you measure your training, aside from recording sets, reps, and weight?
When it comes to effort, we can usually push past the limits we thought we had.
So how can you make sure that you’re training hard, but not overtraining?

My clients do this for every workout. It’s another helpful tool to help us make progressions over time.
Start with an RPE of 7 and work up in intensity weekly from there as you get stronger.
Take A Look At These RPE Ranges:
RPE 1-4: Effortless to Somewhat Easy
RPE 5-6: Moderate to Somewhat Hard
RPE 7-8: Hard to Really Hard
RPE 9: Extremely Hard. A struggle to complete the reps and/or weight
RPE 10: Beyond Hard. couldn’t have done any more reps/weight no matter what.
You can’t go all out on every rep, every set, and every workout, but you can bring your best and make it count.
