3. Designation and Purpose
If you haven’t done any planned training, we recommend that you designate yourself as beginner. Progress is rapid till you reach your intrinsic Strength.

If you have done weight-training, you could try an intermediate program where progress is weekly. However, if you have been through a formal barbell program, you could directly move onto advanced programming.

Once you decide your designation, pick a purpose (football, baseball, track & field, powerlifting, MMA etc.) from the dropdown. StratFit will serve you programs that develop the best combination of abilities for your purpose.

4. Depot
You are now in the SF depot, where you can choose from plans relevant to your purpose. You can select a plan and go through the details and the entire plan structure.

5. Subscription / payment
Go ahead and subscribe to a plan – you can extend the plan by renewing it every month. You can also change to a new plan anytime you want.

6. Activate & Tmax
Now you will be able to activate the plan & know when your training begins. You will be asked to go through a test process to determine your 1 RM (one-repetition maximum) on the Bench Press and Squat.

7. TMAX
Tmax is your training 1 repetition maximum. Enter the value if you know it (or) go through the next few steps to determine your Tmax for Bench Press and Squat. The Tmax for the other exercises are derived from this. For the Bench Press, estimate the weight with which you can do 10 reps. Enter the weight. Perform the Bench Set with the estimated weight and do as many reps as possible. Enter the number of reps you are able to do. If you can’t lift it all, reduce the weight by 10% and try. Now repeat the same process for the Squat. Now StratFit displays your Tmaxs.
