Adjusting Percentages


Written by

It is hard to assess in advance how an athlete is going to respond and progress during a training program. So if you’re using a percentage based program, what is 75% on Week 1, may not/should not be 75% on Week 5 or 8 or 12. It is unrealistic to expect that a coach in an online setting or the author of a program in an ebook, could realistically predict the future percentage adjustments needed across an array of people using the program. So the onus will fall on the athlete to effectively adjust the percentages as you move forward through a program.

In this video, Chad Wesley Smith urges trainees to take ownership of their program and adjust their training within reasonable parameters of the written plan and to understand that your daily max will ebb and flow and you need to adjust percentages and weights to reflect that.
