• # Create Custom Set and Rep Schemes With {STMr} – Module 2: Reps-Max Relationship

This course module will introduce the elementary building block for creating set and rep schemes - the reps-max relationship. The first video in this module deals with some theory and introduces three models to “map out” the relationship between reps to failure and %1RM.

• # Problem With (Perceived) Reps-In-Reserve

The use of (perceived) reps-in-reserve (pRIR) in strength training has become one of the most prominent (subjective) auto-regulation methods. Another very common subjective auto-regulation approach that precedes pRIR, involves the use of the rate of perceived effort (or exertion), or RPE.

• # Create Custom Set and Rep Schemes With {STMr} – Module1: Introduction

Before we jump straight into the {STMr} package and accompanying tools, I need to give some theoretical feedback that is required to understand the “whys” behind the percent-based prescription.

• # Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 6

{STMr} package is created to help sports scientists and strength coaches estimate strength profiles, create and visualize (percent-based) progression tables, and set and rep schemes.

• # The Ultimate Set and Rep Scheme

There is an unlimited number of set and rep scheme combinations for a comprehensive classification system. But I do have my favorite scheme! Find out which one is it in the following article.

• # Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 5

This article explains how you can avoid direct 1RM testing and doing reps to failure by using a novel approach. Don't miss out on reading the fifth part of the Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning article series!

• # Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 4

In the previous part, we used a set of Epley’s equations to estimate both group and individual reps-max profiles, as well as to create progression tables. One characteristic of Epley’s equation is that 100% 1RM is achieved with 0RM, which is not an ecologically valid assumption. What the hell is 0RM in the first place? Find out in the...

• # Load-Exertion Tables And Their Use For Planning – Part 3

In this article, I will teach you how to create individualized progression tables, but before we jump straight into that, I will walk you through the process of getting Epley’s 0.0333 coefficient in the first place.
