Bodybuilding RPE Scale

RPE 1-3 || This should be a weight that an athlete can move with ease throughout the intended rep range.

RPE 4-5 || This is a weight that provides a moderate amount of resistance but the athlete feels like they could double the intended rep range with the weight they chose

RPE 6-7 || This is a moderate-moderate/heavy weight for the athletes. This should provide a challenge for the intended rep range but should not be something that they are worried of failing. The rest needed between sets should be minimal.

RPE 8-9 || This is a near maximal effort for the intended rep range. Athletes should need and want adequate amount of rest between the sets at this RPE.

RPE 10 || This is a max effort for the intended rep range. The athlete should be fully taxed at the end of each set.

-into-

2 rounds

10 PVC pass throughs

5 PVC around the worlds (each direction)

10 Arm circles (each direction)

5 Down dog/seal pose transitions
Focus: Move with intention and take machine work at an easy/moderate pace

Shoulder Press (Build to a 1RM @ – RPE 10)

*Rest 2:00-2:30 b/t sets

Focus: Take barbell from the rig. Keep abs and glutes engaged to prevent over-extension of the low back. Use a slightly staggered stance if needed to prevent over extension. Barbell should make contact with the upper chest/shoulders between reps but you should not lose tension between reps by resting the bar in the front rack. Attempt to add a small increase from previous week’s loading.

Seated Double DB Shoulder Press (4 sets: 10 reps – RPE 8)

Focus: From a seated position, raise a dumbbell in each hand to the shoulders. Press overhead to full lockout and return to shoulders. For comfort in range of motion, dumbbell can come to the shoulder in more of a neutral grip position and finish in a pronated grip overhead (similar to an Arnold press motion without the full supinated grip at the shoulder).

DB Snow Angel Raise (4 sets: 10 reps – RPE 8)

*Rest 1:00-1:30 b/t sets

*Build to a moderate weight; stay the same or build across

Focus: From a standing position, raise a dumbbell in each hand to the shoulders. Press overhead to full lockout. Leaving one dumbbell extended overhead, lower the other dumbbell to the shoulder and press overhead. Repeat on the opposite side. For comfort in range of motion, dumbbell can come to the shoulder in more of a neutral grip position and finish in a pronated grip overhead (similar to an Arnold press motion without the full supinated grip at the shoulder).
