    I have just stared the powerbuilder program and have noticed I’m able to hit more reps than required for the exercise.
    Week 1 says 65% of your 1rm for 12 reps, but I’m getting much more than 12 on each set with 65% of my 1RM. Do I just use some common sense here and do sets with whatever weight I can get 12 for? Or should I still just do my 12 rep sets with the 65% without hitting failure as the RIR is 0 for the big lifts. Hope this makes sense. Cheers guys!

    Hi Bryce with this I’ve experienced the same issues, I’ve also put this as a 4 day weekly split by adding the delts with arm days, So I basically do 2 on, 1 off, 2 on and then 2 off, and on rest days I do 30 mins cardio at low intensity on the bike. Can you explain the difference between a SLDL and a normal Deadlift? Does one more focus on the hamstrings and the other more so the posterior Chain and overall body parts. I don’t get how sometimes some exercises are programmed for the given sets that your wanting us to aim for. For instance for what is an isolation movement you will give us a rep range between 6-8, where as an isolation is ideal 12-15 let’s say. This is my 3rd program since joking the app nearly a year again and I’ve just noticed lots of differences, it can be quite confusing at the best of times lol.
