Firstly I had become a huge reader of Mike Tuchscherer's work at Reactive Training Systems. I wanted to fully understand his way of training using autoregulation by working from an RPE chart. I flew Mike over from the USA for a seminar on the 27th of November 2016.
I continued to be a big reader of the RTS system and had the opportunity a couple of years later to have two other RTS coaches over at Supreme Training. One of them was Isabella Von Weissenberg who was at the time, an IPF U72kg World Champion and Squat World Record Holder. The other was RTS coach Jim Elli who had coached athletes to a very high standard.
