Basically i added up the total number of pounds moved for each rep from warm-up to work sets, divided by bodyweight, then i multiplied it by a value that created a number that seamed correct based on perceived exertion and also when compared to a bike workout.. its not so scientific- but should be consistent as weights or bodyweight go up and down
Ugh, gym work. I've been trying to lose a lot of weight this off season so my lifts plateaued early enough as I didn't want to eat more to push more, then I ran out of money for gym membership. I'll probably start in the new year, but what I used to do was sit on the bike letting legs tick over before, between and after my sets, sort of reminding them what they're supposed to be doing. I have no science for it.
