Hi! Need your advice (plz see attach.). The thing is that with the same weights and reps I get different levels, depending on whether I log previously planned workout with %rpm (top of the pic) or just log the new workout, putting in kgs and reps I lifted straight (bottom). Which is the correct way of logging such workout and what’s the difference? Thanks in advance!

    Sergey,

    As far as BTWB is concerned, those are two completely different workouts. Your workout level is determined by comparing your score with other people who also logged scores to that specific workout. The sample sizes could be different for both. One workout could also contain heavier posts than the other. Both of those will cause different levels, even though the weights are exactly the same.

    I hope this makes sense. Please let me know if you have more questions.

    Jake

    Ok, I get it, thanks! But will both of this workouts take effect on Potential Max calculation the same way?

    Sergey,

    Yes, it should because the potential max calculations are for individual movement sets. So the potential max will be the same for your 5 rep power clean @65kg regardless of the workout it comes from.
