S1E23: Mike Tuchscherer on Building World Champions With Better Recovery
Show Notes
"The thing that ties all lifters together, regardless of their level, is that we are all interested in getting to the next PR."On this episode, I interview Mike Tuchscherer, founder of Reactive Training Systems, and father of using 'Rate of Perceived Exertion' (RPE) based on 'reps in reserve' to modulate recovery with training. Mike has coached 12 people to world records, he is one of only five people to have ever totaled over 2100 lbs in the 260 lb in the IPF, and is something of a legend in the training community.In this interview, you'll hear the story of how Mike accidentally pulled a world record deadlift. You'll learn how to use RPE in your training to help manage and progress better, and we also answer reader questions.
