Load Targets

Updated 5 months ago by Peter Li

Do not use a load that you are uncomfortable with. All exercises and workouts should be performed with a spotter for safety reasons.

In guided workouts you create or discover, a load target can be set for each exercise set. Atlas Multi-Trainer displays the target in the rest period before you begin your set.

Load

Load is the default prescription for resistance used. You can select a specific value in pounds or kilograms (for example, 10-kgs). When performing the exercise in a workout, Atlas Multi-Trainer displays the prescription and then log this load when the exercise is completed.

Atlas Multi-Trainer watch rounds to the nearest half pound (0.5-lbs) or nearest 0.1 kg.

Bodyweight

Bodyweight (BW) is a dynamic load prescription that follows your personal bodyweight. A "1 x BW" prescription means an additional load equal to your body weight is recommended. A "0.5 x BW" prescription means an additional load equal to half your body weight is recommended.

When performing the exercise in a workout, Atlas Multi-Trainer converts this multiplier into a specific value in pounds or kilograms (for example, if your bodyweight is 150-lbs, a 0.33x BW load prescription in the smartphone app is converted into 50-lbs on Atlas Multi-Trainer).

Using bodyweight as a load prescription enables flexible workouts that scale for different body sizes.

Percent Repetition Maximum Estimate (%RM)

Percent Repetition Maximum Estimate values are estimates and may not accurately reflect your actual physical fitness. Never use a load you are uncomfortable with. All exercises and workouts should be performed with a spotter for safety reasons.

Percent Repetition Max (% 1RM) is a dynamic load prescription that follows your personal record of estimated load used for this exercise. Each time you perform an exercise, we estimate your repetition maximum using Epley and Brzycki equations. Your one-repetition maximum is the most weight you can lift once for an exercise. You can select a percentage value in the mobile app (for example, 50% 1RM) by tapping the exercise and selecting Exercise Settings.

When performing the exercise in a workout, Atlas Multi-Trainer converts this percentage into a specific value in pounds or kilograms (for example, if your 1RM is 45-lbs, a 50% 1RM load prescription in the smartphone app is converted into 22.5-lbs on Atlas Multi-Trainer).
