MVO2 Session 7

15:15 MVO2 protocol:
16kg x 8 reps x 50 sets
RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) = 19

1. I detected a power loss on my right side relative to my left during the 20th set.
2. I wanted to quit after the 30th set.
3. Beginning at set 36 until finish, RPE remained at 19.
4. Sets 46 - 50, I just thought to "Finish with the best form and power I have."
5. A 19 RPE is too high to maintain an explosive power and good form for too long.
6. I don't know how much longer I could have gone and don't want to find out.
7. In the future, aim for a maximum RPE of 18 with momentary 19s.

Deciphered notes: This was a lot of work.
Enough, back to the tractor. I feel great!
