Yeah it's not exactly a system for everyone. I'm not sure I want to have to determine perceived effort.

Some sets are really hard for me to judge. Take squats. 365x8 seems like a 9 until I do 445 x 5, and then that seems like a 9.

I am obviously not doing his system justice with my babble. I'm sure it's a great approach once you become familiar with the mechanics.

I will say the aspect of fatigue percentages intrigues me the most, but I need to buy the book to learn more.
