I’ve been reading stuff by David Dellanave about biofeedback testing to autoregulate your lifting.
The idea is that you do a range of motion test like touching your toes before starting an exercise (to set a baseline). If you do a set and your ROM improves it’s a green light to continue and you continue to lift until your ROM deteriorates past your baseline.
It’s an intriguing idea. I’m not sure how scientifically valid it is but I imagine it could be a psychological cue at least as much as a physical cue.
Does anyone use these techniques? Does anyone have an opinion on them?
It’s covered in his Off the Floor book and a few blog posts.
