    Hello!

    How do I find out how much weight I should use for a given exercise.
    Same goes for resistance bands.

    Hi Jürgen,

    Keep your effort level around 50-60% and if you are limited in resistance and feel the recommendations are too easy or hard reduce or increase the reps before adding sets. If you lose form, which we call technical failure, stop the set. You should always stop a few reps from your max. Do not go to complete failure.

    This does go off of feel and if you prefer you can use 60% of your 1RM to get more precise. Band exercises get a bit tricky with this but you want to find a band that feels ‘moderately hard’ and overtime when it starts to feel ‘easy’ go up in band resistance.

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

    Best,

    Thanks for the answer for my first question. It helped. 🙂

    I do have another question though.
    Reading through the explanation in the Resources sections, it is clear how to do the sets on the first page of each document.
    On the second page of (at least the first few documents I had a glance on), there are also exercises with a header called Upper Body Pull/Push.
    My question regarding this would be: If and how should I incorporate those into the super sets from page 1 of the workout documents?

    Thanks in advance already.

    Hey there! Any update on this?

    Hi Jürgen,

    The two exercises for upper body should be done as a super set. For the times where there is only one upper body exercise you are welcome to include it with any super set from the first page (making a triple set) OR performing the exercise on its own with a 90 second to 2 minute rest in between sets.

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
