Getting the ball rolling this Christmas week with some shoulder pressing!
Today we are using what's called the RPE scale.
RPE is a way of self-modulating your effort. It's a 10-scale. an RPE 9 means you probably have about 1 left in you. RPE 6 means you've got 4 reps left in you. It's a way of judging your effort not based on a percentage of your max, but on how heavy the weight feels that day. Let's try it out.
A) Push Press
1x5 @ RPE 7
1x5 @ RPE 8
3x5 @ RPE 9
B) Seated Single-arm Lateral Raise
5x10 ea arm

C) Towel Pull-up

D) Dumbbell Bench Press
E) Weighted Lateral Neck Raise
