RPE Course - Eric Helms Andy Morgan

Too much training to failure will hamper recovery, limit the frequency and volume of training you can manage, and ultimately, keep you from making the gains you could otherwise have been.

This is where Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) comes in. It is about programming intensity of effort, rather than just intensity of load and can be an invaluable tool for intermediate and advanced trainees.

This 5 part email course written by Eric Helms and I will show you how to implement RPE into your training programs to match your load to your readiness, manage fatigue more effectively and thus make faster gains. This is 99.9% Eric’s work based on his coaching experience and Ph.D. research, 0.1% my tweaks. (Which means it’s as current as you can get, written by one of the best.)

This is completely free, in the last three days, 2800+ smart trainees like you have already opted in. Don’t miss out, opt-in here.

About the Author

Andy Morgan

I'm an online nutritional and training coach living in Tokyo, Japan. After seeing one too many people get ripped off by supplement and training industry lies I decided to try and do something about it. The site you see here is the result of a lot of Starbucks-fuelled, two-fingered typing. It's had a lot of love poured into it, and I hope you find the guides to the diet and training methods I use on this site useful. When I'm not helping clients you'll likely find me crashing down a mountain on a snowboard, racing around Suzuka circuit, or staring at watches I can't afford. (Read more about me →)
