    For very broad rep ranges that Joe prescribes (I.e. 5-12, 8-20) where’s a good place to start? Should I pick a weight that gets me to the bottom of the rep range and increase reps as time goes on, or pick a weight that gets me to the middle of the range and work my way up as time goes on? Hopefully this makes sense

    I just did all weight to failure in the prescribed rep range if it’s RIR0 and whatever your body reacts well to. So some exercises (more isolation) I would do the higher rep range and then the compounds I would do the lower side. As long as you’re working till failure I don’t think it really matters and that’s why he prescribes the bigger ranges.

    Hi, If u look into the program it is like this: work up to a topset off 5 reps and then a backoff sett at 12 rep. The same with 8-20, there u may have 3 sett (8-12-20) do that make sense?
