How can you tell if you are training with enough contentration? What is the low-finish threshold for maximizing muscle growth? In the event you train to failure “just in situation”? Additionally to answering these questions, I am also analyzing the RPE (or RIR) of some bodybuilders including Jay Cutler, Chris Bumstead, John Meadows, Kai Greene, Ronnie Coleman, Alberto Nunez, Greg Doucette, Matt Ogus, Stefi Cohen and Sunny Andrews. I additionally discuss exactly what the science states concerning the relationship between closeness to failure and repetition speed. Enjoy!
