Includes anything beside flyes/pec dec which I just fuck around on for the pump anyways. This block was the classic mid grip flat bench and incline DB press combo. Counted all the working sets because I don’t get much volume warming up anyways.
Benched 150kg paused… well the shortest pause ever lel lets call it touch and go so about 330lbs.
RPE for working sets is programmed beforehand so don’t really have how “generally” close I go to failure. Working between RPE 7-9 so reps in reserve 1-3. Rep range will vary thru the block 8-12, 6-10, 6-8
Accessory/isolation like flyes is loosely programmed. I write a + in the reps and RPE columns and just fuck about.
Well… it’s literally the highest volume I can recover from so… it’s at the end of the high end for me. Give or take 5 sets and I think most people would fall into that range
Keep in mind I only hit this volume for one week at the end of a micro cycle and then deload immediately after for a nice recovery supercompensation boost when I come back for next micro.
Also it’s built up to thru the training block. i don’t start with that workload, I build work capacity up to it
