Create your First Training Plan
What is a 'Training Plan'?
Typically a training plan is a set of workouts a person follows over a set amount of time, like 8 weeks. The concept is pretty much the same when using Remote, with some additional concepts.
In order to fully understand what a Training Plan is in SuperFit, there is another key concept that must be understood as well: a Phase.
In short, a 'Training Plan' can have one, or many phases. In exercise physiology, the equivalent term would be a "microcycle", which is a training cycle that lasts anywhere from 1 to several weeks.
Based on the illustration above, if 'Phase #1' and 'Phase #2' are each four weeks long, that would mean our Training Plan is 8 weeks long.
What is a Phase?
The purpose of a phase is to achieve a specific goals anywhere from between a week to a month (though it can be longer based on your programming).
In this example, we will create an 8-week 'Intro to Basketball' plan.
Tip 1: Make your Training Plan specific
I want to create a training plan aimed at helping people learn the fundamentals of basketball. 'Intro to Basketball' seems a bit too generic as the name of my plan. Users may not be able to determine what purpose this plan is meant for. I want to focus on the fundamental skillset of playing basketball — not focused necessarily on basketball strength or conditioning. I'll instead name my plan "Basketball Fundamentals: Skills and Shooting"
