Noticed the work outs are designed that each set is broken down into seconds instead of x amount of reps per move...
Curious as to why this is? If it is more beneficial or if that varies by person... which way you yourself perfer to execute a workout... And if there is any workouts done by rep instead of sec on here??
I think the main reason is so that they are challenging to people of all abilities,for instance someone who is used to exercise can do more in a set time than a beginner and the fitter u get the more u can do so it remains challenging and also lets u see how much u r progressing.
In my opinion, reps should matter more if you're a beginner. Try doing a healthy amount of reps to build up your strength and then once you get strong enough you can challenge yourself by doing them quicker.
There's no point in, for example, trying to do 20 pushups in 20 seconds if you don't have the strength to do 20 in like a minute. So there's no harm in taking a few extra secs for each rep.
So focus on gaining strength and maintaining form. Soon you'll be strong enough to blow through your sets. :)
I think it's a limitation of the app. Then again I noticed that the timer works great, it's more honest to your bodies abilities. When starting I often do more reps in the same amount of time. So the timer gives me an instant drop set. What matters in the end is the amount of time your muscles are under tension. As a rule of thumb if I complete the last set or time I'll raise the amount of weight. This way I make sure my muscles have an incentive to grow :-)
Tempo is just as important as reps.
