For my Honor’s Project for Barrett the Honors College, I chose to research and develop an
application on the topic of Ideal Weightlifting Volume and Frequency for The Male Lifter. The
reason I decided to center my project around this topic is due to the plethora of information
available on this subject matter. However, I was more driven to pursue this subject matter due to
the lack of implementation and usage of all the relevant information and case studies offered to
us through the means of online journals, abstracts, reports, etc.
The application will be programmed using the software known as Android Studio. Inside
Android Studio, the programming language that will be utilized is Java. The goal for this
application is to gather information from the user, and with that information, create a conducive
weekly weightlifting regiment based on the wants and needs of the user. Furthermore, the
application will only create programs on a week to week basis, thus encouraging the user to
dabble with different preferences each week. Outputting the program on a week-to-week basis is
an integral logic of this program because it is my belief that if the user is given the privilege to
change their programming on a weekly basis this will allow for flexibility, adaptability, and the
pursuance of short-term goals, which is much more tangible in the onslaught of obtaining a goal.
When browsing through the app store or the internet, it is incredibly difficult to find online
programs that utilize research and scientific credibility. Many of these programs and trainers
offer quick results that are flashy and trendy, however lack any real qualitative reinforcement.
Thus, it is my mission, with my application, to create a program that is intuitive for the user, as
well as to provide scientific programming with proper citation of case studies and reports
conducted by educated individuals.
