Just like in the weight room, there’s always room for improvement. Beast has upgraded the App for a greater lifting experience!
While the core elements remain the same, new features, widgets and training modalities have been introduced taking Beast to a higher level by emphasizing on Velocity Based Training.
We have taken into consideration the suggestions and feedbacks from every user and working together with strength and conditioning coaches, athletes and of course the developers, Beast Strength 2.3.0 has been released for both iOS and Android users.
Let’s break it down:
In order to track your progress, an “on the go” kind of way, select Power and during your workout, you’ll be able to analyze each set rep by rep, have a full analysis of each set, the weekly average, in Watts, that you are lifting, the weekly tonnage and a summary of your history.
Or if you would like, you can set Velocity in order to optimize your workout with VBT and hit the training goal you’re pursuing. You will be able to find out the mean velocity (M/S) you’re obtaining from each set, and have an overview of each individual rep from each set as well as your workout history.
Velocity Training Mode:
Set a velocity target according to a specific goal
While working out, all reps below the target speed will be highlighted with a dark yellow color and the sound will be lower than usual, providing a live feedback on your performance. In this way you can control velocity loss.
Or without setting a specific goal, use the new VBT widget indicator to see the range you’re working at and check out the speed parameter you’re hitting after each set.
Take the most out of your VBT and analyze the average speed of every rep. Check out your consistency, the velocity loss or any peaks during your performance.
Power Training Mode:
Along with Velocity, Power is a key metric to evaluate and compare when lifting.
Get a deeper insight on your Power in order to maintain the optimal performance throughout the exercise set by set. Review your average performance and how it may vary on a weekly basis.
With these metrics along with the tonnage, Power mode will help you monitor your improvements for each exercise or to recognize the first symptoms of over-training.
Note: live feedback will be provided in the chosen modality for the workout.
Optimize your workout, review your results and have fun with it!
You can now share your workouts on socials, show off your sweat and be an inspiration for your friends!
A list of the performed exercises will be displayed along with your results on the average power, total reps performed, tonnage and workout duration.
In order to create a better experience in the weight room for yourself, Beast Development Team is working everyday on improving the accuracy and precision of the algorithms.
So how about you stop reading this blog post and put your glutes to work!
Stay tuned, greater things are coming!
Note: For Android users the “Share” feature will be available in the upcoming days.
