Perceived effort is a term with which you should become familiar. Power lifters that â€œwaveâ€™ their efforts (dropping well below max efforts and slowly increasing the weight over a period of months to peak for a competition) can gauge their training success by identifying when the same weight â€œfeels lighterâ€ than it did previously. We usually avoid such squishy definitions of progress, but unless you max out every time (in our case once a week) this is all we have to go on. It seems to work OK. Keep this is mind when a lower % of 1RM is RXd in a WOD and consider putting how it felt in your notes.
