PeteHodgson said:Hey Mr. Macca.
If 200kg for 5 is rpe8 how come 190 is too?

It's not really in this instance because I was just feeling my way with the sumo's and I'm quite happy to take a couple of weeks to find my true level

However, doing RPE8 for 3 sets of five means that you can easily expect the weights to change between sets.

If you don't warm up so well for example, you might find that your second set is better than your first so you can use more weight.
Or you might only have 90 sec's rest between sets, so you may well have to drop the weight slightly to keep at RPE8

Capisce?

Not a bad session.

I'm having a an issue with sumo's at the moment and it's one I've had in the past.
During some set's, I get a white hot pain high up in the right side of my groin - When it happens it's nearly bad enough that it can't push through it.

Then it goes within five seconds of finishing the set and might not come back again that day.

It's obviously nerve related, but it's a bit of a killer as it kicks in at the start of the lift so I'm having to be extra cautious for the beginning of the movement.
This is doubly s**t as it means that the lift ends up being harder and I'm not training my start strength as effectively as I should.

In the past this has gone away after a few weeks, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this time is no different.....

Nice squats mate.
Is there a particular type of knee sleeve you use / have used in the past which you'd recommend? I'm looking to get some. Ta.

It's an odd one for sure Mr Rodge, I'm sure it will sort itself out, my dong is probably pressing on a nerve due to being so big Happy

Knee sleeves, you can't go wrong with SBD's mate - Just don't be lulled into buying a 'competition' fit as they just end up being a pain in the arse to put on and then hurt whilst they are on - All for nothing over getting a pair that actually fit Happy

I actually think you get more out of a loose sleeve as you end up with a lot of material bunching up behind your knee.....

Ok Cheers mate. I was looking at SBD's I just noticed they were pretty pricey!
At present I can barley get my strenthshop bumblebees off after a squat session and they hurt like f*ck - right I think you've helped me make my mind up then! Thank Paul Happy

A macca says, I first got a large pair which are great and I still use.

I stupidly got a medium thinking they would give me something which they did, bleeding knuckles getting them on and pain in my legs.

The bigger size I find actually give more as there is more material plus you don't have to mess around getting them on

Squats = Easy

Sumos = f**king my s**t right up!!!!

The white hot verve pain is still there and it was bad enough tonight to make me decide to sake sumo's off.
I did all of my warmups from a one inch deficit to really open my hips up, but it made no difference.

The only way I can sumo pull without pain is to essentially conventional pull it (that is not just just my glutes to initiate the movement) and that's just a bit pants.
So I'm swapping them out for low block pulls from next week.

Excelsior!
