New routine: PHAT - Power Hypertrophy Adaptive Training

(Jannik) #1

To kick off the new year we have a bunch of new workout routines waiting for you. The first one of the new year is a PHAT (stands for Power Hypertrophy Adaptive Training) routine:

It’s a 8 week plan with each weak consiting of 5 training and two rest days, coming in at 40 training sessions. The good thing: the plan has such a variety of exercises and muscle groups that you can extend it to 6 months with no problem.

I think you should look at how the previous reps and weights are logged in the PHAT program. The protocol varies in its heavy/medium rep schemes and as such just seeing the last weights used for say, barbell squats does not help.

Eg: Monday is Heavy day and squats were 3 sets x 5 reps of 100 KG.

Friday is Light/Explosive day and squats will be 6 sets x 3 reps of 70 KG.

In this case, Monday’s history (which is shown by default) does not help. Athletes need to compare figures between 2 Heavy days and 2 Light days. The only recourse right now is to look at the history manually and making a note somewhere out of the app, which defeats the point of using it in the first place.

This is not be a problem with other programs with simple linear progression between day to day but PHAT is different. The easiest way to fix this would be to show the last two attempts of a lift rather than just one.

Also, any edits to the program do not carry over. So if I swap out barbell curls for dumbbell curls, it is only saved for that day. The next time the routine shows up, it reverts to the default template.
