So, as you approach the rarefied strength levels, may be its time to chuck out %ages.
Sorry for the confusion. I don't use percentages to determine workouts. All of my programming is by feel. I was looking for patterns and merely found that all my strains happened when I trained above 90%.

Good point, and one I've considered. I thought about taking every other week and just using power shrugs, good mornings, or lighter deads, etc.

I may need to give this a run in some form or fashion, perhaps...

Definitely food for thought.
