    I need to heed your advice, no sense going into a WO feeling good then feeling like shit for the next 2 days. Thanks for telling it like it is. Your talking about M.E.D. is what its all about for us geezers, I'll be 71 next month and need to realize this.

    Rip: RPE is for pussies! Don't be a pussy! Also Rip: It's OK to cut your volume. Volume kills! You don't have to prove anything to anyone.

    Wondering if perhaps RPE might be a solution for us old folks. But there I go talking sense again, no place for that here. :-)

    If you want to plan your workouts on the way up to your work sets based on your warmups, go ahead. Just enjoy your training.

    If I relied on RPE, I would rarely get to my deadlift work sets as my final warm up single almost always feels impossibly heavy. But, since I program based on what I've done previously, taking into account my age and experience, I follow what's written down for the day and do what was planned. It's worked out for me so far, as I'm 59 and pulled 519 in a competition this past October. I deadlift (roughly) once a week through a (roughly) 3-week cycle, doing a single set of five the first week, a triple at a higher weight the next and finally a heavier single the third week, then start over at a slightly higher weight. Same with squats (not on the same day as deadlifts); 3 sets of 5, then 3 sets of 3, then 3 singles. Keeps volume at a reasonable level while pushing intensity. (Thank you to BBRx for the programming!) And I try to do my best to ignore how heavy the warm-ups feel, because experience tells me I can lift more than I feel I can.
