Fitbod’s Metrics Broken-Down
Fitbod’s a good training partner because it gets to know you.
It does that by gathering, compiling, and analyzing your data. All of this comes from your past workouts you've logged and is available for you to track over time. Check out the breakdowns of each Fitbod metric to help you reach your fitness goals.
For weighted exercises, Estimated Strength (previously known as your “Projected 1 Rep Max”) is a metric that tells you the most weight Fitbod estimates you can lift in 1 rep. For bodyweight exercises, your Estimated Strength (previously known as your “Projected 1 Set Max”) is the highest number of reps Fitbod thinks you can do in 1 set.
What Can Impact Your Estimated Strength?
During any given workout, your set, rep, and weight breakdown per exercise have the biggest impact on your Estimated Strength. Fitbod also accounts for how much time has elapsed between exercise performances. For example, you’ll probably see a dip in your Estimated Strength if you take a break from training because our app is trying to accommodate for any loss you might have incurred during your time off.
Your Estimated Strength Record
Your Estimated Strength Record is the highest weight (or, in the case of bodyweight exercises, the highest amount of reps) you achieved for a particular exercise. Fitbod will also take into account all of your past workout data with Fitbod.
What distinguishes the Muscle Strength score from Estimated Strength? Estimated Strength pertains to a single exercise and represents the weight Fitbod estimates you could lift in a single all-out-effort rep, measured in lbs or kgs.
On the other hand, the Muscle Strength score is an aggregated score, not measured in lbs/kgs, that reflects the overall strength of a specific muscle group based on all the exercises you perform for that muscle. For instance, your Estimated Strength for Barbell Bench Press might be 100 lbs., while your Muscle Strength score for your chest could be 57 mSTRENGTH, considering not just your bench press but also exercises like push-ups, chest fly, cable push, and any other workouts targeting your chest.
Volume is the product of the sets, reps, and weights you lift while performing an exercise. For example, if you did four sets of ten reps with 100 pounds, the volume lifted would be 4,000 pounds. It’s the same for metric units. If you did four sets of 10 reps with 45 kilograms, the volume lifted would be 1,800 kilograms.
Your Volume Record
Your volume record is the highest volume of weight logged for a particular exercise. It takes into account all of your past workout data with Fitbod.
Reps are the number of repetitions you perform for any given exercise. Fitbod records the highest number of reps done for a given set of any applicable exercises. For example, if you did two sets of ten reps, then two sets of twelve reps, your rep record for that exercise would be twelve in one set.
Your Rep Record
Your rep record represents the highest number of reps that have been logged for an exercise in a given set. This number accounts for all of your past data.
Fitbod measures your Weight metric as the heaviest weight that you’ve lifted while performing a given exercise. For example: If you did one 25-pound set, then a 50-pound set, and finished with a 75-pound set, Fitbod would mark the weight you lifted for that workout as 75 pounds.
Your Weight Record
By taking all of your workout data into account, Fitbod’s Weight Record is the heaviest weight you’ve lifted while performing a given exercise in any logged workout.
Your exercise time metric is the longest duration done for a single set of an exercise, either looking at today's performance or across all performances in a specified time period.
Your total time metric is the total amount of time you performed an exercise across all sets, either looking at today's performance or across all performances in a specified time period.
Your distance metric is the furthest distance traveled for a single set of an exercise, either looking at today's performance or the range across all performances in a specified time period.
Your distance record represents the longest distance you've ever logged in one set, across all sets logged in Fitbod for a specific exercise.
Your total distance metric is the total distance you traveled across all sets, either looking at today's performance or across all performances in a specified time period.
Total Distance Record
Your distance record represents the longest total distance you've ever logged, across all sets logged in Fitbod for a specific exercise.
Your split metric is the top speed you performed in a single set or performance of an exercise.
For example, if you're running five miles, your time at each mile marker would be a split pace.
Or if you run 5 miles in 60 minutes, your average speed would be your split metric.
Your split metric is the highest split in a single set, either looking at today's performance or across all performances in a specified time period.
This is the best split completed in a single set, across all performances of that exercise logged in Fitbod.
