How to use 1RM, 3RM, 5RM, 10RM for Measuring Client Performance

To help your clients get the most out of their workouts and set manageable strength goals, you need to not only choose a number of reps for them to complete but you also need to set the weight or resistance level they should be using to perform their sets. 

Sure, you could take an educated guess, but why would you when you can now use pre-built 1 rep max and 3 rep max assessments (workouts) to more accurately calculate a client’s ideal load.

Whether you use an actual performed 1RM or 3RM or just a predicted value, you’ll be taking the guessing out of your clients’ progressions and building them a program that will lead to success.


Tracking Rep Maximums

You can use this feature to test your clients' strength periodically, whether for a 10 rep, 5 rep, 3 rep, or 1 rep true max.

You can either build specific workouts that act as assessments for your clients, by requesting the number of reps you want your client to test out at, or whenever your client completes a set of an exercise using one of those rep ranges (1, 3, 5, or 10) the amount they were able to lift will be automatically saved to their profile and plotted on the progress graph.

You can use this stored information to benchmark your clients' strength progress over time, then reference this data on the exercise progress page graphs.
