How do we aggregate the training dose? What are the pros and cons of different dose metrics? How do we predict 1RM from training data? What is “exertion load” metric, and why is it useful? How should the ballistic Load-Exertion table be adjusted? Find answers to these questions, and much more in the following article.

In this part, I will continue the discussion on exercise classification and introduce the slot concept, functional units, and very useful conversion tables and matrix. Conversion matrix is very useful heuristic tool to figure out approximate 1RM of the assistance exercises.
