You are given a multiplier (based on a percentage) to find your target weight (the weight you'll lift for each set). To find your target weight, multiply your max by the multiplier. You'll have to round to the nearest five pounds.
Instead of doing negatives, this program requires that you "rep out" ("RO" in the table). For a rep out, do the target weight at a 4-0-2 temp until failure. For all other sets, just use a reasonable tempo.
Failure Tests: these are indicated by an "F" in the table. Same as Shawn Phillip's program, except it's seven reps to pass, ten to advance.
If you advance on a failure test, add five pounds to the "max" that you use to calculate your target weights. For example, if you started the program with a max of 250, and on your first failure test got 11 reps, for the next workout you would calculate your target weights by multiplying 255 by the indicated multipliers. Similarly, if you only got 5 reps, you would use 245. Seven to nine reps, and you keep using 250.
