RPE Calculator for RTS (Reactive Training System)
This calculator should be used as a rough guide to gauge what kind of weights you will be lifting today. It’s based off of Mike Tuchscherer’s RPE chart. If you’re unfamiliar with RTS check out this link.
The calculator is very simple to use. Enter a weight that you just lifted in the 1-8 rep range at roughly a max effort. So if you reach 315 for a 5 rep max, enter 315 in the input below and select the 5 from the radio buttons. You will be given your 1RM for the day, as well as the weight you should use for doubles, triples, etc.
Do not stick to this calculator religiously, use it as a guide. If you feel like doing triples at 330 is too light, increase the weight (and vice versa if it feels heavy).
