So I always shoot for the weight he gives me, unless I am really failing that day, and I report the RPE. The next week, assuming we are still in the middle of the block, will continue to move up. But we have an idea where we should be RPE wise and if it is way off I am probably building up too much fatigue.
This is how I roll also.
