This episode is dedicated to the exciting collaboration and technical integration between AdapNation #HyperWorkouts and HeavySet iOS App.

If you like weight training and want to make serious progress, you need good programming, consistency, sufficient nutrition and to progressively overload.

It sounds academic, and for many people intuitive. You need to lift increasingly heavier stuff more often to get bigger and stronger. However, training well and being deliberate with progressive overload is not straight forward.

A great series of annual training blocks combined with a killer app that helps take care of all the detail and helps you make deliberate progress is what you need. And that’s exactly what this collab brings. So, we interview the founder and creator of HeavySet – Daniel Wood, to get a deeper dive into the app, it’s inspiration and also the space of mobile app development.

If you’re keen on making your gym efforts more productive and enjoyable, then listening into this and checking out the APR-19 #HyperWorkouts Training Block is well worth your time. Also, if you’re curious about what it takes to make popular profitable apps, there’s some great insight into this episode.

Here’s what we discuss:

1️⃣ What was missing with #HyperWorkouts that HeavySet fills perfectly?

3️⃣ The creation of HeavySet & Seconds – what gaps were missing in the marketplace?
