Exercise Damage

The rumors true: the stronger and more fit you are in real life, the more powerful you are in the game!

When you first start at Black Box VR, the resistance will be at its lowest setting. After every battle, we analyze your performance and if you did better than before, we move the resistance up and your exercise level also goes up.

A level 2 deadlift is more powerful than a level 1 deadlift. Once you level up an exercise, the damage per rep also goes up. That means you are doing more damage against the enemy’s units, gates, and crystal! You will win more battles the stronger you get.

What are Supercharged and Hysterical reps?

At the beginning of each set, you will be doing 1x damage with each rep. If you can make it to Supercharged mode by doing enough reps, you will be doing 2x damage! You can see how close you are to Supercharged mode by watching the meter in your Heads-Up Display (HUD).

If you can surpass your previous best set and do enough reps to get into Hysterical mode, you will suddenly start doing FOUR TIMES the damage for each rep. That’s really going to hurt your competitor’s chances of winning that round against you!

This part is important: If you hit Hysterical mode, you know that your exercise will level up after this battle! The more Hysterical reps you do, the more you will level up. Don’t quit until you can’t do another rep with proper form. Stopping a set early will make the machine learning algorithms think you need a lighter setting for next time. Oopsie.

Please note:
Supercharged mode will only activate with Medium and Heavy sets.
Hysterical mode will only activate with Heavy sets.


If you can handle it and you can maintain safe exercise form, it’s almost always better to do Heavy sets vs. Light or Medium. Of course, if you are super tired or just want to finish off a gate really quick, loading up a Light or Medium exercise is smart.

Push hard, level up your exercises, and then get ready for unexpected compliments about your physique to start appearing in real life.

“Sorry about that. As I was saying, you can work out as much as you want, but you’ll never get the results you want without proper nutrition. Unfortunately, with so many different ‘fitness gurus’ selling the latest diet books, it can be hard to know what type of diet to follow.

The truth is, it depends on your goals and your preferences.

The best nutrition plan is one you can stick to over the long term!

For example, if you are trying to lose fat, you will want to reduce the number of calories you take in each day. That’s easier said than done. We can only depend on sheer windpower… er, I mean, willpower for so long before we give in to our hunger and slice up another pizza.

There are a number of strategies for reducing your calorie intake, including:

IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros)
Intermittent Fasting
And countless others…

They all have their pros and cons. So which strategy is best for you? The one you can stick to!

Spend a little time researching nutrition plans and strategies, pick one that fits your needs, and give it a try. If it doesn’t work for you, try something else until you find what does.

Without proper nutrition, your body will not respond the way that you want and your performance on the Black Box VR battlefield will suffer. We are here to help so feel free to ask your friendly Hero Trainer for advice!”

We’ll see you in the Arena!
