PQ Gym: When & How to Log PQ Reps

Definition of PQ reps and instructions on how to add reps in the app.

What is PQ Rep?

  • PQ Rep is a 10-second hyper-focus on one of your senses.
  • PQ Reps boost your Self-Command muscle the same way that dumbbell reps would boost your physical body. 
  • Doing PQ Reps is a foundational practice for building your Mental Fitness.

How do I count Reps?

  • Most of the time the PQ app grants you PQ Reps whenever you complete an activity that involves doing them and calculates automatically to your progress.
  • When you do PQ Reps on your own, for example, during lunch focusing on the taste of the food, or in the shower when focusing on the sensations of water, you can give yourself 3 PQ Reps per minute of practice. For example, if you are doing a 10-minute meditation, you get 30 PQ Reps, or a 7-minute shower with attention to your sensations would give you 21 Reps, and so forth. You would log these as explained below.
Most people’s minds will drift a bit when doing PQ Reps in a continuous fashion. As a result, we simplify the counting and measure by taking a realistic average for each minute of continuous practice. This allows you to stay completely focused on the essence of the Reps, as opposed to getting too wrapped up in the literal counting.

How do I add Reps in the app?

  • Click on the Gym, then the (+) button in the upper right of the app's screen.
  • From there, either enter the number of Reps completed or the number of minutes you practiced PQ and click Save.
