In this tutorial you will learn how to use Beast to check the load you’re lifting.
Training at the correct Intensity is a key aspect for the efficiency of your workout sessions.
Training Intensity = Load lifted / 1RM
1RM stands for 1 Repetition Maximum, or the maximum load you can lift for just 1 repetition with the correct technique.
The key is every different quality for Strength requires a specific range of training intensity, as explained by the Hill Chart or the Force-Velocity chart.
You can monitor your training intensity with the Beast App by setting a target intensity (“workout of the day” mode) or with default values (“workout on the go” mode).
Default training ranges are shown in the table below:
- Max Strength >70% 1RM
- Hypertrophy 70% to 90% 1RM
- Strength – Speed 60% to 80% 1RM
- Power 50% to 70%1RM
- Speed – Strength 40% to 60%1RM
- Velocity 30% to 50% 1RM
- Resistance 50% to 70% 1RM
- Metabolic 20% to 70% 1RM
