To access the plate calculator, you must be in an active workout. So, in your workout, tap the three dots to the right of the set you want to use the calculator for, and choose Plate calculator.
The calculator will show a picture of how your bar should be loaded and a summary of how many of each plate you’ll need below it. You can enter a new weight and tap Update set to see the next loading.
You can customize your calculator in different kind of ways.
- Create different profiles so that you can switch depending on where you are training
- Tap the gear icon. Go to Profiles and tap the green plus sign. Choose if you want to make a profile for kg or lb. Add plates, barbells, and collars.
- Add a new barbell to your profile
- Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner and go to the selected profile. Press “Add barbell”
- Change barbell
- Tap on the summary of your loading and swipe to the correct barbell in the menu
- Add different types of collars to your profile
- Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner and go to the selected profile. Press “Add collar”
- Change/remove collars
- Tap on the summary of your loading and swipe to the correct collar in the menu
- Add/adjust the available plates in your gym
- To add New plates, go to your profile, and press att plates. Fill in the weight and the number of available plates
- To adjust the number of standard plates, tap the summary of your loading and then tap the plate you want to adjust
Below, you can see the plates I’ve added to my profile called STK. All standard plates will already be available in the overview – and you can adjust the number of these plates later. The same goes for barbells and collars.
In the example below, I’ve created one profile for my regular gym and one for my home gym. The home gym is less equipped, so when I created that profile, I chose to edit out all 25, 15, and 2,5 plates. Just tap the picture of the plate you want to edit, and a pop-up will let you change the number of available plates. As you can see, the calculator will tell me how to load the bar with the available plates.
The plate calculator is still in its beta phase, and if you have any feedback, you are more than welcome to shoot us an email or comment below.
