Fitbod will periodically ask you to rate the difficulty of a certain set, rep, and weight combination. Your Exertion Rating will help optimize future weight recommendations and keep you in the ideal range!
Exertion is defined as how much effort and energy was expended while performing the prescribed sets, reps, and weight.
Exertion Rating for iOS
If you have not yet logged an exercise, Fitbod will recommend a set, rep, and weight scheme based on our Warm Start model (information on Warm Start). If you complete and log this Warm Start recommendation, Fitbod will prompt you to enter your Exertion Rating.
