Frequently Asked Questions / Guide
What is this site for?
This site is designed to help you track your gym progress. Mainly focused to exercises that involve lifting weight for a set number of repetitions and sets.
Why should i log my workouts?
If you dont track or measure what you do, you might fail to progress. It is important to track each workout to help you see if you are moving forward or stalling. Depending on your goals you might want to make adjustements since the body wont respond the same to the same workouts every single time... many things change, we age, our bodyweight change, stress in life, moving, family, etc...
How do i log my workouts?
You log in into your account, go to your journal. You will see a calendar. You click on the day you want to log and write your workout and hit save, that's it! You dont need to pre-configure your exercises or anything liek that, the system will recognize your exercises on the fly and act accordingly. You just write.
Do i have to log all my workouts the same way?
No. You can log whatever you want. If you follow a specific format that will allow our system to extract information from your log and give you stats. But if you dont care to log accesory exercises for example you can log whatever you want.
What is EFF and INT?
EFF = Effort. In this system it refers to the highest 1RM estimated based on a set of more than 1 rep.

What is INOL??
It is a formula created by Hristo Hristov
which gives us a relative measure of intensity across sets of different rep ranges.
More information here (pdf)
Optimal INOL values per exercise for a single workout:
* < 0.4 - too easy
* 0.4 - 1.0 - optimal range for most athletes. An INOL value between 0.7 - 0.8 is a recommended starting point.
* 1.0 - 2.0 - tough workout, but good occasionally, especially for loading phases
* > 2.0 - very difficult and could lead to overtraining if performed regularly in most individuals
