How to change Squeezy App settings for a beginner

Beginners Guide to change Squeezy App settings –

  • How to slow the speed down
  • shorten the “slow” holds
  • create a pattern to suit a beginner
  • less (or more!) reminders!

I LOVE squeezy app but my (minor) bugbear is that the default settings it comes with are actually the “end goal”. In the long run you want to be able to hold for 10 seconds 10 times in a row but I don’t come across too many beginners who can manage that! Not easy for beginners, and for many people a bit demoralising at first try. If you could perform like that already you likely wouldn’t need the app!

How to tweak the settings if you are a true beginner…

  • Go to the green-ish petal “exercise plan”.  
  • Set yourself timings for THREE times a day.
  • scroll down to find the “Professional Mode” and turn it ON

Make the Slow Ones “shorter” holds

  • then go back to the “Slow exercises” and change to:
    • the number of reps to 8
    • squeeze time 5 seconds
    • Hold time 0
    • Relax time 5 seconds
    • rest time 0

Now they will be shorter on/offs to get you started. Little and often through the day.

More Tortoise than Hare?

  • Then go to “quick exercises” and change the dial to TORTOISE speed = Speed A.  This will mean that they don’t come at you so fast giving you more time to release between contractions.

Lose the sub-max exercises for now

  • Then go to “sub-maximal exercises” and choose repetitions = 0

Or a tweak if you’re a bit bored of the pre-set “slow” pattern

Our brains get bored easily and switch off a bit once something becomes familiar. Wake yourself up a bit with a pattern change:

  • Go to the green-ish petal “exercise plan”.  
  • scroll down to find the “Professional Mode” and turn it ON
  • then go back to the “Slow exercises” and change to:
    • the number of reps to 10
    • squeeze time 4 seconds
    • Hold time 4 seconds
    • Relax time 4 seconds
    • rest time 4 seconds
