Your clients nutrition requirements / targets may vary across the week / month based on their training / competition schedule or weight making protocol. On SENPRO you can set two types of targets:
Target for specific day - a target set for a specific day, for example, Saturday 26 September and overrides any default target that may have been set for that day.
When in the Planner, click on the cog in the nutrition target block. The side bar will appear. Here you will be able to calculate your clients nutrition requirements / targets.
Using energy equations
To use the macro calculator, you will be required to enter some basic information about your client, including their gender, weight and height.
Choose from the following energy equations:

Here you can enter the percentage distribution of carbohydrates, proteins and fats based on the calculated energy requirements, then click calculate.
