RPE range

I was a little late to the party but I’m halfway through the PPL program you guys put out. A lot of the lifts have rep ranges already (6-8, 8-12, etc), should I be using the low or high end while utilizing RPE? Example: 6-8 single arm rows 8 RPE. Should my max reps be 8 or 10?

Protein consumption

How much protein should someone really be consuming? You hear anything from .5 grams per pound of body weight to 1.5 grams. If you are consuming on the high end of that scale can it become bad for you long term, is there any negative heath consequence that could come up?

Is there a more affordable protein powder option?

I know you guys love Legion, and I do plan to try it out. However, have you seen the cost? Yikes. I currently use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey, 5lbs for $75. I'm sure Legion's worth the cost, but Legion is outside my budget right now in terms of quantity for the cost. Can you suggest a good protein that is more affordable?

Help with the workout Google sheet

Is there a warm-up for the upper body? I see 2 for lower. Also, I would love to watch the video about how much weight I should lift, but the link doesn't work.

PPL Question

Whats the reason for only two sets on certain exercises? I always heard it was 3-5 sets.
