Frequently Asked Questions - Equipment
Phyzseek provides a standard daily workout for everyone but adjusts according to what equipment the user has available to them.The exercise equipment page of the App allows you to input what equipment you may have available either at home, at the gym or on the road.The Phyzseek app will provide alternative exercises depending on your equipment.Thus, you may have no equipment in which case the workouts will be body weight only or at the other end of the spectrum you may have all of the equipment available to you in which case you can perform the standard workouts.
Ideally, we recommend performing the workouts with all of the required equipment. To do so, you will need access to the following: a pullup bar, weights (barbell w/plates - total weight of 60 - 65 lbs. for men and 30 - 35 lbs. for women, dumbbells 20 – 30 lbs. for men and 10 – 15 lbs. for women, and kettlebells – 40 – 50 lbs. for men and 20 – 30 lbs. for women), a wall ball (16 – 20 lbs. for men and 10 – 12 lbs. for women), an ab roller, rings/tethers and a jump rope. You may also need resistance bands, and an ab mat. Equipment can be easily purchased on Amazon with delivery right to your door.
Very simply, the answer is YES. With the new heart monitors, tracking your heart rate during workouts has never been easier. While they may not be 100% accurate, they are very useful for maximizing workout results. The App is designed to easily capture, track and analyze the heart rate data.
Tracking your weight and blood pressure will help you monitor improvements in overall health. Weight can be easily tracked with a traditional scale or using the wireless FitBit Aria Scale. You should measure your weight prior to beginning the Phyzseek program and every week thereafter, inputting the results into the Phyzseek App. Blood pressure can be monitored with an automatic blood pressure machine that either attaches to your upper arm (more accurate) or wrist. Again, you should measure your blood pressure prior to beginning the program and every week thereafter. Blood pressure should be 130/80 or lower.
