    How to count repetitions ?

    Hey everyone !

    Sometimes I see a specific workout and don't know how I am supposed to count my repetitions, especially when it's a hard one.
    For example for this month's challenge : Iron Core
    Plank rotations : am I supposed to do 5 each side or 10 each side ?
    It's not always obvious how tocount when it's not precised "each side"...

    I'm sure someone more ambitious than I will include a link to the site "manual," but ALL numbers listed are the total reps for that workout - ie, so if it says "10 plank rotations," that means ten TOTAL not ten each side

      Ok thank you I was mainly wondering because sometimes I wonder if it's the whole movement that is counted and it might seem more logical to count all the movement as one. Let's say for climbers or high knees, do you still count 1 per leg ? (cause sometimes then I don't feel like I'm doing enough if I reduce the total per two)

        When and exercise is done on Each side, such as the Plank rotations, the number given is the total number divided by the sides. So, if and exercise says, 40 Leg Raises, you will do 20 with the right leg and 20 with the left leg. 10 plank rotations is 5 to each side.

          I tend to count both sides because it's less mental work especially if it's hard and you have to do many...but then I divide the amount of reps.

          So, let's say it's 20 leg raises, then I would count 10, but count both sides as 1 rep.

          left side, right side, 1. Left side, right side, 2.

          I usually count one side only as well. So I would choose to count either the left side or the right side. It makes it easier to keep track that way.
