We write our rep scheme structures a little differently so they are better differentiated from our tempo. Traditionally, programs will write 4x3 to designate "four sets of three reps." However, this looks too similar to our method of writing tempo (30X1). When you see a rep scheme that looks like this: 4,4,4 - it is interpreted as three sets of four reps. Set one through three will have four reps each.

Example:

Front Squat; 20X1; 2,2,2

rest 2mins between sets

Would be:

Set 1 - 2 front squat reps at 20X1 tempo, rest 2 minutes

Set 2 - 2 front squat reps at 20X1 tempo, rest 2 minutes

Set 3 - 2 front squat reps at 20X1 tempo, rest 2 minutes
