There are many variations on this same theme. I push every set until I feel like I might fail on the next rep. When I am doing heavy, advanced work, I add 5 pounds when a weight feels manageable.

RPE is just a fancy way of quantifying 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.
