All of the turquoise fields are inputs; you should set these to the appropriate values as described below.
21
22
Test Weight.....
The maximum weight you've lifted for the given exercise.
23
Reps.....
The number of reps you've completed at the test weight. Something close to 5 is ideal.
24
Set Interval.....
The size of the steps between your ramped sets. 12.5% is the program default. Lower
25
values will make your initial sets heavier, and thus the program more difficult.
26
Tonnage Cutoff.....
The weight a set must be (as a percentage of your computed 1RM) before it will be
27
included in your relevant tonnage numbers. 60% is the program default. This value is
28
for information purposes only and will not affect your program.
29
Smallest Plates Available.....
The weight of the smallest plate you have available. The program worksheet will round
30
all of your work weights according to this value.
31
Match PRs in Week #.....
The week in which you want to match your previous 5RMs. Week 4 is the program
32
default. Use a higher value if you need extra recovery time. Do NOT use a lower
33
value or you'll stall early on, lose motivation and then complain this program
34
doesn't work. Let it be easy for the first 3 weeks.
