What is an e1RM? Check out our help article on estimated one-rep max to learn more.

During a Volt workout, the Smart Sets feature (which is powered by Cortex, Volt’s training AI) works to adjust your recommended loading for a movement from set to set, based on your feedback on a scale of 1 to 10 RPE (rate of perceived exertion). Behind the scenes, Cortex knows what RPE rating we are expecting for any given set. Depending on the ratio of expected to actual RPE, Cortex will adjust your weights up or down, to prevent both over-training (training too hard) and under-training (not training hard enough).
