    Show us a heavy set of five. Singles do not work well for form checks. Also do your fives. There is no reason for you to be doing eight singles if 260 moves like that for a single.

    Alright thanks bud. Also this was a single at RPE 8, not 8 singles.

    Usually the nomenclature is 1@8 to denote a single at 8. Or 260x1@8. So you can see where the confusion came in.

    What is your age/height/weight/level of advancement?

    It says you've removed the video of your 235x5.

    That may still be a bit underweight even at 5'4" and may be why you unltimatly ended your LP. You might want to think about gaining some more weight.

    In terms of programming, I'm skeptical that early intermediates have the experience to utilize RPE effectively. You could use it to express how a load felt, but subjective stuff like that should not dictate load at that level of training advancement.

    In my experience a 4-day Texas method variant or a heavy-light-medium type program better serves most people. But that is a discussion for the programming board.

    I'd like to help you with your squat if you could repost the video.
