Ability to predict repetitions to momentary failure is not perfectly accurate, though improves with resistance training experience

Abstract

'Repetitions in Reserve' (RIR) scales in resistance training (RT) are used to control effort but assume people accurately predict performance a priori (i.e. the number of possible repetitions to momentary failure (MF)). This study examined the ability of trainees with different experience levels to predict number of repetitions to MF. One hundred and forty… (More)
