Charlie, how intense on the 30 sec intervals with the rope when going for 20 min?

Charlie Reply

Eh, about a 5 on RPE.

Charlie- pardon the question if it’s obvious..I have been watching your training for a while (and do read and really enjoy a ton of your stuff). I’ve assumed you’re referencing concurrent periodization methods with your abbreviations (Max Effort, Dynamic Effort, etc.). What is the “R” for in this ME Lower lift?

Also, as an aside, why no more Submax Effort (SE) or Rep Effort (RE) days tossed in there for the last month or more?


Charlie Reply

M of RME = Method of Repeated Maximal Efforts; it’s like heavy doubles or 4s, etc.

Repeated Method is going to failure with a set weight, which I pretty much name it wrong anyway
