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.

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

Focus: Rack a barbell in the front rack position. Focus on keeping tension in the legs throughout out sets. Stop just before full lockout at the top of each rep for added time under tension. Perform 1 and a half reps by squatting below parallel, raise to above parallel, return below parallel, and then stand. Do not bounce out of the bottom of any reps.

Back Racked Barbell Box Step-ups (4 sets: 10 reps (each side) – RPE 8)

*Rest 1:30-2:00 b/t sets

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

Focus: With a bar in the back rack position and a 20” box, step up on top of the box to full extension. Repeat on the opposite side. Taking a breath in and breathing out as the step is completed will assist in stability and core engagement.
