The One-Rep Max (1RM) assessment is exclusive to the BUILD program! This will provide weight recommendations for the key lifts in the program, including the deadlift, bench press and squat.
Before completing your first resistance workout in BUILD 1.0, you will be asked to complete the 1RM assessment.
For members who are more experienced in weightlifting, we also provided the option of entering the weights manually. In the instance that the 1RM values have not been included, you will be provided with a RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) to help guide you in selecting your own weights.
When I started build last week I was not offered this. Is there a way I can make sure to get this completed so I know what weights to use?
If you didn't receive the 1RM assessment before your first workout in BUILD, you should be able to uninstall and reinstall the Sweat app onto your device, and when selecting a workout the assessment should pop-up!
Alternatively, you can also enter your 1RM online the Web App at www.sweat.com
Just sign into your account and along the top of your screen select 'Weight Recommendations.'
If you have any trouble, feel free to reach out to our Support Team at email@example.com to assist you further.
When a workout that includes a barbell says do X weight does that weight include the bar or only the actual weights?
The weight of the bar is included!
Therefore if it says to perform 10 reps x 60 kgs, 20 kg for the bar and 2 x 20 kg weight plates (1 on each side).
Hope this helps!
