    Second, I can read the damn thread title.

    Third, do you always answer questions on things you'd prefer to answer instead of the question/topic being asked/discussed? The topic was the 8+ minute recommendation that an earlier poster mentioned, particularly for heavy sets, i.e., those at RPE 8-9. Here's the quote where that came up:



    Everyone expressed ignorance as to where it came from, i.e., the 8+ minute recommendation. I found a reference that just so happened to have been written by Jordan. There's a similar bit in Practical Programming. That is all for fuck's sake.

    Also, Jordan changes his mind/revises his thinking, so I'm verifying if this is even valid. You know, for the people, like novices, the target audience for this whole website and message board, who will take things as they see them and not think about them at all? Or maybe they'll think about them too much. Or maybe they'll think about them incorrectly.
    Some people can't figure out GOMAD either...it's all very nuanced.

    Think work sets usually are at 8+ most of the the time on the Bridge, due to the protocols like 5@6, 7, 8*3 mandating a 5% increase per 1 RPE. Maybe the sensible thing is to reduce by ~2.5% when you hit a 8.5, which I haven't done really, but maybe should start doing. Pre-emptive changes are usually a good thing in programming IMO.

    Definitely some more learning has occurred, but as far as strictly ATP is concerned it's going to be right in that range, though that is not what is solely driving the performance on subsequent sets, ya know? This is why 15 min rest periods don't reliably work either.
