So when I’m assigned plate cocoons, I’ve given excellent feedback a few times. So now Coach is increasing the weigh from 45lbs plates to 50lbs plates.
Problem is plates only go up to 45lbs
So I’ve been truthful with the Coach and I report it back to the 45lbs. But won’t Coach mistake this for weakness and give me false adjustments?
Hi @Jwebster3073, the Coach might think that you are not able to perform this exercise at 50lbs.
Have you added your weight available in the equipment section? would you have access to a 50lbs dumbbell to do the prescribed weight?
I never thought of that, but yes perhaps I could substitute with a dumbbell.
I would like to pick up this topic because I don’t think that you can handle a barbell or dumbbell the way you grab a plate. And it depends not only on the available weights but space as well. If I could do the cocoons home that’s fine but in the gym I wouldn’t do.
Besides this dumbbells become very unhandy from a certain weight on, especially on twists.
Perfect would be a solution for these plate exercises where you could define the maximum available weight and the coach calculates the reps accordingly.
