Hi - i’m following barbell journey. ive 2 questions.
I’m changing the weight on each session for my bench and then getting asked whether it was ok great etc. Im responding based on the weight I’ve changed to. The app on the next session doesn’t seem to remember this and goes back to a much lighter weight, is this correct?
I don’t have the roof or outside space at the moment to do a push press so am using the landmine attachment on a single arm - is there a way to replace the push press with this exercise?
Hi @shaun1 :
1 - this is correct, it might just take some time for the coach to adjust. Feel free to change the weight yourself and not adjust the app and give feedback as it was too light. Maybe that can help the Coach to adjust quicker.
2 - there is no option to replace the exercise, but I would just make a mental note to switch that exercise every time it comes up and use the weight the app recommends. That way you can still track your weights
Hi Shaun, you are probably experiencing the bug that I reported a while ago on this forum. It seems that when you lower the weight during the warm-up phase, this makes the Coach think that you are not able to lift that load and therefore will adjust the next session with a lower weight.
I also don’t have weight fractions, so I often have to round numbers. Knowing that these problems arise during the warm-up, I avoid lowering the weight suggested by the coach. At most, I use a higher weight and indicate it. During the session, however, it seems to me that these problems do not exist, so I indicate the actual weight used and at the end I give feedback based on it. If I am unable to complete all the repetitions required, or if I complete them by dirtying up the technique too much, I tell the coach that the weight was too high.
