How do the workouts work?
There are three 40-50 minute workouts each week - Lower Body, Upper Body and Full Body - plus an optional fourth session that will give you an introduction to Olympic lifting and a space to develop your skills.
In the three main workouts, there is a combination of heavy compound exercises to work multiple major muscle groups, plus accessory movements and conditioning to level up your strength and fitness even more. Different parts of each workout are based on reps, laps or time and you’re encouraged to log your weights to track your progress.
Throughout each workout, you’ll have in-app guidance around how hard you should be pushing yourself - via RPE or rate of perceived exertion. This is designed to help you continue making progress each week and levelling up without burning out.
