Screenshot - There are many different displays for cardio depending on what inputs its got


There are no statistics yet for cardio, but it will arrive on the next update :)



Major performance increase added!

Today is introducing caching to the system.

The first test shows up to 500% faster page load of trainings!

Added caching for viewing of trainings, dramatically increased performance! ( (20/6-13)


Page load of an normal training with 7 exercises was dramatically reduced after caching! 



How does it work?

On first page load the cache is saved in the memory, so when the next person visits the page its just read from the cache.
A cached training last for 1 week before the training-cache is cleaned.
If you update a training the cache is reset.


Important fixes released!

A couple of important fixes has been released!

Average Intensity added!

An new statistics view is added to trainings, Average Intensity

What does Average Intensity actually mean?

You simply sum all the sets, along with the number of reps for each set.
(Total weight of all sets / total reps of all sets) = Average weight lifted

(100 kg x 10 x 5 + 115 + 130 x3 = 1965 kg/18 = 109.16 kg on average)
After average weight is found you divide that with the current 1RM of that exercise, such as 160 kg (109.16 / 160 = 68% Average Intensity). 


Average intensity per exercise



Total average intensity for trainings


Why Average Intensity?

Its recommended/researched that for people training to get stronger, the average intensity should be around 70%, if you sum up all trainings in a week.
For average intensity to be precise the weights calculated should be from 60% of 1RM and upwards.
