About reps, sets and other parameters

All exercises within your exercise programme indicate how often or how long you should perform the exercise. If your healthcare practitioner has chosen to enable adherence tracking when assigning your exercise programme, you can indicate for each exercise how many of the prescribed repetitions you performed.

Note: this is your practitioner's view. Within PhysiApp, this overview looks slightly different. All parameters will be visible after you open an exercise.

The instructions below are guidelines only. Your healthcare practitioner may have meant something different. If in doubt, always contact your healthcare practitioner.

  • reps - stands for repetitions. 10 reps means that an exercise should be repeated 10 times.
  • sets - represent the number of times the above mentioned repetitions should be performed in total. 10 reps 9 sets means that the above mentioned 10 repetitions should be performed 9 times, i.e. in total you would do the exercise 10 x 9 = 90 times. See also the image below:
  • hold (only visible after opening the exercise) - indicates the number of seconds (or minutes) you have to hold a certain position.
  • bpm (only visible after opening the exercise) - stands for beats per minute, or the maximum heart rate to be achieved during exercise
  • duration (only visible after opening the exercise) - indicates how many minutes this exercise should be performed. You see this parameter most often in cardio exercises.

Important notes:

  • When specifying how many repetitions and sets you did, you can select up to double the values prescribed by your healthcare practitioner.
  • Feedback you provide in this window does not necessarily have to be read by the healthcare practitioner and is not a substitute for direct contact with them.
  • You confirm your entered data by clicking on one of the pain level icons. Want to learn more about pain levels and alerts? Click or tap here.
  • Contact your healthcare practitioner if you have any questions or doubts, for example about how long to pause between sets, or what to do if you do not manage to do a particular exercise.
