Back to the Gym: Two New Jefit Strength Programs

blank

It has been over a year in the making, and all of a sudden there are many more happy people around. The reason is because gyms are open again! Now gym goers can get back to what they love doing, sweating in the gym. Jefit, an award winning strength training planning & tracking app, is trying to do their part. They have developed two new strength training programs to help everyone ease back into the swing of it at the gym, health club or home.

The two new programs the Jefit team recently created are the 3-Day Split Program and Dumbbell Full Body Workout. The first program is an off-shoot from a workout published by Jefit a few years back with a similar name. That particular program is the most viewed and downloaded strength training program in Jefit’s 11-year history.

Take a look at both of these free training programs and download one now. Give it a try to help get back in shape for your mid Summer push. Let us also know what you think of each program. For best results, stick to each strength program for 4-6 week following the prescribed number of training days.

Two of the Many New Jefit Strength Programs

3-Day Split Program

This is a 3-day split routine. It is considered an intermediate level strength programs.

This program builds off the original 3-day Split Routine published by Jefit a few years ago. That routine, by the way, is the most viewed and downloaded program in Jefit’s 11-year history.

In this new, updated, 3-Day Split Program, you’ll work each major muscle group at least once throughout the week. The idea is to make sure your training volume is high to ensure you sufficiently overload each muscle group.

There is also an optional 4th workout session, in this program, that targets two body parts twice. Keep in mind it’s optional.

The routine is split by specific muscle groups on various days:

Chest & Triceps: Day 1

Back & Biceps: Day 2

Legs & Core: Day 3

Optional Workout: Day 4 (Repeat one from above each week)

You have the option of repeating one workout (listed above) twice during each week that you’re on the program. Jefit recommend following the strength programs for 4-6 weeks.

For example, in the first week, you can repeat chest and triceps again on day 4, in order to target these areas twice. The following week, add in back and biceps a second time. Finally in week 3: work legs and core twice.

Each week, you’ll complete a 10-minute bout of cardio post workout on day 3 (legs and core).

DB Full Body Workout

This 3-day dumbbell strength plan is for a beginner or intermediate level gym-goer. Each of the three weekly sessions include nine exercises. The average workout time is about 50-minutes. Each day also includes multiple supersets to help you get through each workout session a bit faster.

How To Use Jefit App To Change The Way You Look

blank

Out with the old and in with the new, a new body that is. Nothing like the start of the New Year to get someone excited about the possibilities of looking and feeling better than 2020. A strong body and a healthy immune system are at the top of everyones list for 2021. Especially with the pandemic still in full swing. This article takes a look at how to use Jefit app to improve the way you look and feel for the new year. A year that will be important, more than ever, to stay strong physically and mentally.

Another Success Story Using Jefit App

It takes a great deal of focus and dedication to actually change the way someone looks and feels. Many have been making this happen, though, with the help of the Jefit app, like Steven Duckwiler who was previously featured by Jefit, found here. Most recently, we have Kent Koehler, another Jefit member, who also has made significant strides in changing his body. Congratulation Kent!

What Members Like About Jefit?

Kent Koehler has been using the Jefit app to help him plan and track his workouts since 2014. Kent mentioned, that he used the Jefit app on and off for about 3 years. He never realized the full potential of the apps ability. By January 2017, he started “leaning on Jefit heavily” each day. “Haven’t stopped since. Used daily and is a powerful daily tool in this journey”. 

We asked Kent what he liked specifically about using the Jefit app. He stated that what he really loved was the “the versatility” of the app. He went on to say he liked: “Routines, logging, history and the ability to focus on a bulking, cutting, HIIT. History helps you see the change and realize the progress. The exercise log is wealthy. When an exercise is not there, it can easily be created. You can make an exercise, link to where you found it, and log notes to makes it as complete as it can get personally.

Jefit Contests

“The contest are good. Motivation at every corner. The contests pushes you to earn and not skip. Consistently earning Jefit iron points benefits me by access and more importantly my goals. The social aspect is fun. The people on here have a common goal to improve their life. Earning better health and looks. So 99 percent are on here to learn, share, and ‘lift’ others up. Solid good motivation. Sometimes you get a comment that can make your day. Other times I am commenting to praise someone without the pressure of trying to creep or hook up. Good, solid support for one another with the right intentions. Feels good to compliment hard work and dedication. Sometimes a compliment is needed and reassurance for someone working hard”. 

What a Typical Week Looks Like for Kent

I stepped into the gym (in 2016) and have not stopped since. Nutrition, exercise, body building has been every day. Few misses, but it is rare and only when I’m exhausted that day.  I workout 7 days a week 99 percent of the time. Some times twice. I do separate body parts on various days and allow rest. Typically, I move between bulking, cutting, and other routines on the app. 

Usually I follow a program 4 to 6 weeks. My goal is to hit cardio, core, and strength each visit to the gym. For a long time I made myself earn my weights with cardio goals first to burn fat. I also focus on heavy training on core, every day. Makes all the difference. My goal is building a better body all together. I now take nothing other than a multivitamin, glucosamine for joint health, and fish oil. I am no longer taking any medications!

Thoughts on Nutrition

What is a typical diet like? Pretty controlled. I stick with my macro goals. Pretty strict through the week. Little relaxed on the weekend. Make sure I stay within range of daily calories. 

To date Kent has lost more than 95 pounds. Amazing job Kent and we here at Jefit wish you continued success and a healthy 2021.

Android Update Version 8.01 Released!

Hello All,

We are proud to announce that we’ve updated our Android Application.

With this update for the Android, we are changing up things with how the application functions and how a user navigates through each page. We feel that with these new UI and navigational changes we have made in this update, that it is a major step forward for JEFIT and future updates to come.

What’s New

1.) NEW – Re-Designed User Interface and Navigational Changes

– In this new update we have made various improvements and changes to the UI of our application, enhancing and simplifying many of the most used pages.

Most noticeable for those logging into their accounts will be the much cleaner and streamlined look to the Profile Page.

Other pages that have received overhauls have been the “Weight/Rep Recording” page and the “Resting Timer” page

We felt that previously on these pages there was too much content and information being put in front of users at once, thus this would cause an overflow on the page and a sense of being overwhelmed when using the application.

So based upon user feedback and small studies we have done, we feel like these changes have been necessary to create a cleaner and more streamlined look to JEFIT.

2.) NEW – Share Your Workout Summary on Facebook and your JEFIT Profile

– Since the introduction of the workout summary feature users have been requesting that we include the option to share the workout summary via social media

We are pleased to say that in this latest update users are now able to share their workout summaries via Facebook and their JEFIT Profiles

Your friends and followers are now able to view the progress of your training and follow your journey as you continue to improve your health

Though only Facebook and your JEFIT Profile are only available for sharing to at the moment, we are working on allowing for you to share your summaries via Twitter, Google+ and Instagram in upcoming updates

3.) NEW – Getting Started/Helpful Tasks for New Users

– With an influx of new users and the amount of content we have within JEFIT, we wanted to give new members options to help get their profiles set up and understand the various and important features of JEFIT.

For new users we have provided helpful “tasks” or options to help you set up your workout routine, record body stats and goals, create custom exercises and more to help you get started off on the right foot and right into tracking workout progress

4.) NEW – Pop Up Interval Timer

– On the “Weight/Rep Recording” page, we have cleaned this page up, removing much of the content that cluttered up this page

Thus with this change we have introduced a new pop-up menu for the interval timer so that the users have the option to use the interval timer if they would, rather than having it clutter up the page.

Via this pop up menu you have access to the stopwatch/countdown timer, previous logs for the current exercise you are performing as well as any notes that you have written for the exercise.

We feel this cleans up the page and creates a more streamlined approach to recording your workout data.

5.) NEW – Pop Up Log, Chart, Goals and Notes Panel

– Along with the pop-up menu on the “Do Exercise” page, we have also introduced a pop up menu on the “Resting Timer” page

With this menu, you are able to view your goal progress, current logs, current set 1RM records, as well as access to charts and notes for the exercise

Rather than cluttering up the resting timer page with content, we have allowed for users to bring up this information and drop it back down so they can continue counting down until their next set.

6.) NEW – Guest Mode

– For those who do not want to create a JEFIT Account, we have allowed for people to skip the registration process and jump right into using the application

* Though the only thing about using a Guest Account is that any information recorded WILL NOT be saved or stored within our servers, thus if you delete the application, lose your guest account or get a new phone, your information WILL be lost *

7.) CHANGED – Simplified Left Slider Menu

– With the the changes that we have made adding the 5 tab buttons, we have also changed up the amount of buttons on the left slider menu.

We condensed and simplified the amount of buttons on the left panel so that there isn’t an overwhelming amount of pages and content on this menu.

8.) IMPROVED – Sharing Body Stats, Body Goals, Workout Routines and Achievements on your JEFIT Profile

-Now with the improved activity feed updates we have made, any changes or updates that you make to your body stats/body stat goals, sharing workout routines or achieving your goals will be shared on your JEFIT Profile page with your friends/other members (depending on your privacy settings for your account).

Just like on the JEFIT Website when you make updates or changes and they are shared to your profile, the same will be done through the application.

9.) IMPROVED – Notifications for Friend Requests and Messages received from Friends/Other Members

– As you continue to make updates, record workouts, share workout routines, post status updates and interact with other members in the JEFIT Community, you will receive feedback and even friend requests from new users that want to connect with you.

Unfortunately before you wouldn’t know if you had a user comment, give you feedback upon your progress or even if you were receiving a friend request from other users.

Now we have added in a notification system that will provide you with a notification from your Home Screen/through your usage of JEFIT that will inform you if you have any requests or interactions with other members.

10.) IMPROVED – Ability to Find and Add Friends on JEFIT

– We have also improved the ability to find friends on JEFIT as well as sending notifications/emails out to your friends when requesting them to join you on JEFIT via social media or email.

We wanted to make it as easy as possible to find your friends via the application (for those who use it) or easily add your friends to join you and follow your progress.

11.) IMPROVED – 5 Button Tab Navigation

– In this update we have brought back the 5 navigational tabs at the bottom of the home screen to make it easier for our users to access the most used pages on the application.

Previously in the last update we introduced the left panel navigation but with recent feedback and user requests, we have made changes to the navigation so that you are able to access the most important features of JEFIT

12.) Bug Fixes

13.) Performance Enhancements


What Is Next

Website Update and Improvements/Changes to JEFIT Elite

– We also will be making changes, improvements and adjustments to the JEFIT Website to continue to improve current functionalities and features.

Along with these changes to the website, we will be also adding additional features/improvements and updating our JEFIT Elite Service following the release of both the Android and iPhone Updates

To all of our Elite users we appreciate your continued support and feedback for this service and look forward to many new improvements and changes to enhance the Elite Subscription experience.

*Reminder* : Please send all of your emails, questions, feedback, reviews and suggestions to support@jefit.com or post on the App/Website Questions on the JEFIT Forums

JEFIT iOS Version 8.0 Update Released!

Hello All,

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve updated our iPhone/iOS Application.  This is a MAJOR update that contains a complete re-design to the User-Interface on many of the major pages and features within the app, improved User-Experience, brand new features, changes and adjustments to current features, bug fixes, performance enhancements and much more.

We feel that previously on these pages we had too much content and information being shared to the users at once, thus at times overflowing the page and overwhelming new and old users alike when trying to view information about your workout or just using the application in general.

 

Based upon feedback and small studies we have done with users, we felt that these changes were necessary and create a cleaner look to JEFIT but also a better usage of the application in the long run.

 

2.) NEW – Share Your Workout Summary on Facebook and your JEFIT Profile

– Since the introduction of the workout summary feature, users have been requesting that we include the option to share the workout summary via social media.

3.) NEW – Ability to Download Workout Routines Created by JEFIT Members

– Now you are able to download workout routines created by other JEFIT Members via the application rather than having to log into the website.

 

You are able to download from over 1000+ member created workout routines that will be instantly stored within your account and be able to used as your workout routine.

 

Following this we are planning, in an upcoming update, to allow users to submit their workout routines to the routine database from their application to instantly share with their friends and other members.

 

4.) NEW – Getting Started/Helpful Tasks for New Users

 

blank

 

– With an influx in new users and the amount of content that we have within our application, we wanted to give new members options to help get their profiles set up and understand the various and important features of JEFIT.

 

So for new users we have provided helpful “tasks” or options to help you set up your workout routines, record your body stats and goals, create custom exercises and more to get you started off on the right foot with JEFIT and get you right into tracking your workout progress

 

5.) NEW – Pop-Up Interval Timer

 

blank

 

– On the “Weight/Rep Recording or Do Exercise” page, we have cleaned this page up, removing much of the content that cluttered up the page.

 

Thus with this change we have introduced the new pop-up menu for the interval timer so that users have the option to use the interval timer if they would like rather than having it clutter up the page; when most would just like to record their logs.

 

Via this pop up menu you have access to the stopwatch/countdown timer, previous logs for the current exercise you are performing as well as any notes that you have written for said exercise.
We feel this cleans up the page and creates a more streamlined approach to recording your workout data.

 

6.) NEW – Pop Up Log, Chart, Goals and Notes Panel

 

blank

 

– Along with the pop-up menu on the “Do Exercise” page, we have also introduced a pop-up menu on the “Resting Timer” page.

 

With this menu, users are able to view their goal progress, current logs that have been recorded, current set and 1RM records, as well as access to charts and notes for the exercise.

 

Rather than cluttering up the resting timer page with content, just like in the previous page, we have allowed for users to bring up this data and drop it back down so that they can continue monitoring how long their rest period lasts.

 

7.) NEW – Guest Mode

 

blank

 

– For those who do not want to create a JEFIT Account, we have allowed for people to skip the registration process and jump right into using the application

 

* Though the only thing about using a Guest Account is that any information recorded WILL NOT be saved or stored within our servers, thus if you delete the application, lose your guest account or get a new phone, your information WILL be lost *

 

8.) CHANGED – Simplified Left Slider Menu Options

 

blank

 

– With the the changes that we have made adding the 5 tab buttons, we have also changed up the amount of buttons on the left slider menu.

 

We condensed and simplified the amount of buttons on the left panel so that there isn’t an overwhelming amount of pages and content on this menu.

 

9.) CHANGED – Drop Down Button Menu

 

blank blank

 

– In the process of cleaning up our UI and many of our pages, what we have done is put the buttons located on the top of many of the pages of the application within a drop down menu.

 

With this drop down menu users can easily slide up or down a menu of options to create a workout routine/exercise/etc…. and creates a cleaner look to the pages within the application rather than cluttering it with buttons.

 

10.) IMPROVED – Share Body Stats, Body Goals, Workout Routines and Achievements on your JEFIT Profile after Updating in App

 

blank blank

 

– Now with the improved activity feed updates we have made, any changes or updates that you make to your body stats/body stat goals, sharing workout routines or achieving your goals will be shared on your JEFIT Profile page with your friends/other members (depending on your privacy settings for your account).

 

Just like on the JEFIT Website when you make updates or changes and they are shared to your profile, the same will be done through the application.

 

11.) IMPROVED – Up-To-Date Current Session Length Notification

 

blank

 

– In a previous update we introduced the session length notification to inform you how long your current workout is

 

We have moved the notification from the bottom left hand corner of the screen to the top of the screen so that it is noticeable throughout your workout.

 

12.) IMPROVED – Notifications for Friend Request and Messages Received from Friends and Other Members

 

blank

 

– As you continue to make updates, record workouts, share workout routines, post status updates and interact with other members in the JEFIT Community, you will receive feedback and even friend requests from new users that want to connect with you.

 

Unfortunately before you wouldn’t know if you had a user comment, give you feedback upon your progress or even if you were receiving a friend request from other users.

 

Now we have added in a notification system that will provide you with a notification from your Home Screen/through your usage of JEFIT that will inform you if you have any requests or interactions with other members.

 

13.) IMPROVED – Ability to Find and Add Friends to JEFIT

 

– We have also improved the ability to find friends on JEFIT as well as sending notifications/emails out to your friends when requesting them to join you on JEFIT via social media or email.

 

We wanted to make it as easy as possible to find your friends via the application (for those who use it) or easily add your friends to join you and follow your progress.

 

14.) IMPROVED – Icons and Navigational Buttons

 

– We have also gone ahead and improve the current look and layouts of our icons and buttons that are used throughout the application.

 

In previous updates of the application we realized we had multiple icons that stood for the same features/functions which caused some complications and issues with users understanding what certain buttons were.

 

With this update we have gone ahead and cleaned up the icons so that each function/button is recognizable and you will be able to understand which icon/button goes to each feature available in the app.

 

15.) IMPROVED – 5 Button Tab Navigation

 

In this update we have brought back the 5 navigational tabs at the bottom of the home screen to make it easier for our users to access the most used pages on the application.

 

Previously in the last update we introduced the left panel navigation but with recent feedback and user requests, we have made changes to the navigation so that you are able to access the most important features of JEFIT

 

16.) Bug Fixes

 

17.) Performance Enhancements

 

– We have also made various bug changes and performance enhancements to make the overall usage of JEFIT a much easier, enjoyable and fluid experience.
