    Hello fellas! I got a quick question regarding the starting weight I’d need to choose on each exercise. Should I go by trial and error and figure out which weight is best for me and continue progressively with it until I feel like I can increase it? Or is these a « rule of thumb » that I can follow?

    Thanks in advance!

    No specific “rule of thumb”.
    Try 1 -2 feeder sets / warup sets to “search your weight” for your rep range and go from there. I prefer to have week 1 as a set point in my program / logbook and progress from there. Specially when you are a beginner of less experienced trainee.

    Remember progress can be made from reps, weight or form. (Don’t only focus on weight increases, form or depth is also a factor of progress)

    Hope this covers your question a bit?

    100% does! Also does it automatically log everything i do so I can keep in mind what I’ve already done? (Without an app I’d simply keep a hand written notebook)

    On a separate note thank you for taking the time to enlighten me, i just downloaded the app

    Yes it will track for you. So when you do the exercise next time it will have the last weight and reps you did.
