My goals revolve around fitness, endurance or aerobics, is MyPhysique for me?

MyPhysique can work well for endurance athletes & people looking to improve their fitness because of its adaptive nature, however the training programs included in your smartphone app primarily focus on strength, hypertrophy & power. If you're looking to get stronger, build more muscle or improve your power within your athletic gaosl, then brilliant we can help.

As far as nutrition is concerned, endurance athletes do tend to require a relatively large calorie intake to support their activity, and the system will ultimately detect this based on data collected at weigh-ins and adjust the macro recommendations accordingly as you complete check-ins over time.

Primarily, MyPhysique has been designed for those people looking to improve their body composition, strength & confidence.

What if I don't like an exercise in my program?

Generally speaking, your workouts have been created with the most up to date evidence-based research to ensure you have enough of what you need combined with a lot of what you want to achieve your nominated goal, however if you really don't like an exercise inside your program you can use the substitution button (located to the left of the SAVE button on the exercise data entry screen) to swap it out for another exercise. If you are going to do this, we'd highly recommend you select an exercise in the 'Select a similar exercise' drop down menu.

What if I fall off the plan or don't check-in every week?

The MyPhysique can only make changes in-line with the progress reporting you provide it with. If you fall off the wagon or don't check-in for a number of weeks, simply check-in at your next opportunity & the MyPhysique algorithm will advise on how best to move forward. Simply put, the more consistency & good dietary habits you can create, the easier it will be for the algorithm to make educated decisions on how best to move forward.

What's the difference between flexible dieting & 'IIFYM'?

Nothing.

Some people might suggest that the term 'flexible dieting' considers nutrition in a more holistic fashion than simply hitting your three macronutrient targets each day, but so long as you're hitting your macros, consuming plenty of healthy foods and consuming adequate fibre, it won't matter what you call it.

Why do the training programs not include training to failure?

There's a number of reasons why training to failure consistently doesn't make sense in the long term.

1. You’re more likely to get injured. When you’re injured, you can’t train properly, and that could mean you ultimately end up losing muscle as a consequence of spending time out of the gym. Training to failure is very demanding on the body & by constantly pushing yourself to your absolute limits, the risk of injury naturally becomes far higher. 

2. Going to failure is MASSIVELY demanding on your central nervous system. Central nervous system fatigue is rather debilitating, and will drastically affect your ability to perform in the gym in addition to your ability to recover. Consistently going to failure when you train will contribute to far more central nervous system fatigue. 

3. Training to failure is not necessary for building muscle. You need to stimulate, not annihilate - the driving force behind building muscle is progressive overload (lifting more and more total training volume over time). You don't need to be consistently going to failure in order for this to happen. Plus, how do you continue increasing volume over time after you've reached failure a few times? How can you possibly hope to continue doing more than failing? You'll inevitably end up seeing a reduction in training volume because you can't possibly continue to lift 'more'. 

4. It's likely you'll allow poorer execution to bleed into your workouts. Perhaps not something that is necessarily going to happen, however there's certainly a greater risk of your form deteriorating when consistently going to failure, and that could mean you struggle to target the specific muscles in question (the ones that you're actually trying to target).

5. While your muscles may take a pounding on a set where you go to failure, your joints and tendons do too. Going consistently to failure all the time is a surefire way to leave you with pains, sprains and strains. Ever had Golfers Elbow or Tennis Elbow or any pain in your elbow? That's an overuse injury, and we'd prefer you avoided those. 

6. You’ll eat into your recovery. You can only build muscle/ gain strength/ lose fat as fast as you can recover. If you’re consistently destroying yourself and going to failure every time you train, your recovery is going to go way down which in turn will affect your performance. 

7. You hit plateaus far sooner. Getting stronger consistently requires sub-maximal training. If you’re always training maximally, you’re going to be stagnant for far longer, as there's simply no room for improvement or progression when you're constantly pushing your limits.
