Fitbod Achievements Explained
Here, you can find additional information about each Fitbod achievement and how they track your progress over time with Fitbod.
Projected 1 Rep Max (1RM)
Your projected 1RM is the theoretical maximum weight you can lift in 1 rep for a given exercise, calculated from your past exercise history. This value will always be slightly higher than your actual max weight logged.
In Fitbod, we use this number to calculate how much you should lift in other set and rep ranges. This number is critical for monitoring and optimizing your progress.
Fitbod won't ask you to test your 1RM. Testing your 1RM can be an intense endeavor, and requires a high degree of caution in order to avoid injury. Instead, we use a modified Bryzcki formula to compute your projected 1RM. Think of this as a normalized number that describes how strong you are in the exercise, taking into account the varying sets and reps scheme that you perform.
Once we have your theoretical 1RM, we use a chart (a modified Prilepin's formula) to determine the percentage of your 1RM to perform for the recommended sets and reps of the workouts. Many generic programs will ask you to perform a percentage of your 1RM. Since we know your 1RM, we go ahead and make the calculation for you when recommending sets, reps, and weight.
Volume is the total weight logged across all sets in a given exercise performance. For example:
5 x 95 lbs
5 x 95 lbs
5 x 95 lbs = Volume of 2,375 lbs
5 x 95 lbs
5 x 95 lbs
Volume record represents the highest volume of weight logged for that exercise.
The highest total reps logged in a single set of an exercise.
The highest weight logged in a single rep of an exercise.
Important Note: Performing the same weight at higher reps will not change the weight record achievement. The weight record achievement displays the set at which the achievement was first received. For example, your current weight record for Bench Press is 95 lbs in 1 rep. Performing a set of 3 reps at 95lbs will not change your weight record and 95 lbs in 1 rep.
