RPE is just a fancy was of quantify set difficulty. It's nothing I care for, but if it works, use it.
I don't believe in training without a program. I don't have time to watch Jason's video, but I will say that 99% of lifters need structure so they have defined goals. It's hard enough for the average lifter to make gains as it is.
Thanks for explaining that. Your method is a lot easier to understand and implement. Also , what is non linear periodisation? I think you mentioned it in a video as being good for bodybuilding.
