No, your muscles get used to the same training stimulus and should experience a new stimulus regularly so that stagnation can be prevented. In our blog we have a lot of information about training, including the training stimulus.
We follow the principle of local a warm-up. This means that you do a warm-up set for each muscle group during the first exercise. This activates your metabolism, promotes blood circulation, improves the interaction with the nerves, increases the reaction speed, joints become more elastic, cartilage can adjust to the load and the warm-up set brings your muscles to be trained to the optimum operating temperature.
We do not exclude a general warm-up, e.g. running, cycling or crosstrainer.
Yes/No, the training is designed for the gym and is based on all typical studio equipment. You can use the app at home and replace any exercises in your workout plan that don't have the tools you need. Unfortunately, this can lead to us not being able to offer you any more exercises at some point. It is already planned to integrate further exercises at home, so that a solid home training is also possible.
That's entirely up to you. You can train as often as you like per week, and you can also choose the day of the week. We create the optimal workout plan for your needs. The only thing you have to keep in mind is the order of the workouts. This prevents overtraining.
During your workout, your central nervous system and muscles adapt. After 4 weeks a new training stimulus should be set by new exercises and training methods, so that always the optimal adjustment is guaranteed. Especially the central nervous system benefits from a change of exercises. It is responsible for a clean execution and the perfect control of the muscles. This also prevents stagnation of the performance level.
The exercise timer is used to assist during the exercise so that the correct and clean execution can be maintained, e.g. cadence and isometric. All other methods do not require an explicit timer.
We will be happy to help you learn more. Have a look at our blog at www.bestfit.app → Blog 😉
Yes/No, the algorithm selects the most suitable training method for you. Nevertheless, you can always create a new plan if you don't like the current method and want another one.
We work according to the supercompensation system. The split is designed accordingly so that the muscle stimulus is set at the optimum time. The split depends strongly on your training sessions per week. If you train more often per week, it is very likely that the split will increase.
Under "Plan overview" you can see all your sessions, where only one should be trained per training day. We dictate the order, which also serves to avoid overtraining.
Basically we always want you to enter the weight, which is used. For example, in the case of the assisted pull ups, this means that you record the counterweight you have loaded. We automatically subtract this weight from your body weight and save the result.
Already for your very first training session you will be suggested a training weight and this without a time-consuming evaluation test.
If you always do as many repetitions as you can just manage, we will automatically adjust the weight for the next set so that you always train in the optimal repetition range.
In settings under "Weight Steps" you can set the steps for weight plates, dumbbell, device and cable pull.
If the suggested weight is still not adjustable, try to get as close as possible to the weight setting. If you manage 1 to 2 repetitions above the given repetition range, you should increase the weight to the next higher possibility. This will ensure an optimal training stimulus.
Your training results are saved by us after each training session and included in the statistics. The statistics for each exercise can be found under the respective muscle groups.
The statistics show your strength development, divided into the individual muscle groups. It shows the percentage change to your weakest performance. If you see a transparent line, it represents the highest strength development you have ever achieved.
By clicking on each muscle group you can see the time course and all exercises you have already trained for that muscle group.
The statistics for each exercise will show you the time course of your performance.
Yes, you can exchange exercises as often as you want.
The problem should disappear when you log out and log back into your account. Just open the settings and click on the last tab "Logout" (make sure that you are already registered, otherwise your data will be lost!). Then log back in with your account and the problem should be solved.
In settings, "Missing tools" you can mark tools as available again.
Unfortunately not, since each exercise must be assigned a variety of parameters in order to function properly in the system.
Our exercise pool already consists of more than 400 exercises. You are very welcome to send us a list of exercises (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) which you would like to integrate into the app and we will take care of it.
