You can now track your workouts by logging your weights, time, and reps, as well as take notes to capture your thoughts when working out.
Here’s how this new feature works:
You can log your workouts from the workout overview or the exercise video player by tapping the Logging icon — it looks like a pencil.
Input your weights and reps and also add notes.
To save your progress in drafts, you must click on the checkmarks from the workout overview or the logging screen.
However, to save your log to your Log History and Calendar, you must swipe or mark the workout as complete.
To view your logs, click on the Logs button in your Profile tab. You will find your logs in chronological order with the most recent log at the top. Tap the View button to view the full note.
You can also view your History by opening the History tab. Access this tab within the logging screen as shown below.
If you want to look up your past logs for a specific exercise to check what you lifted previously, tap the menu next to the exercise name and select Show Previous Log. This will automatically search for logs containing similar keywords.
Note: To view the full note, you must tap View as the History screen will only show you a preview.
You can also view your logs in the Calendar from the Profile tab to easily access your log from a particular day.
When you exit the app without completing a workout, you will see a banner (like the one below) when you reopen the app that allows you to easily re-enter your workout so you can complete your workout and save your log. You can also mark the workout as complete from this screen directly by tapping the checkmark.
To add a new row of a set, tap Add Set. Your inputs from the line above will be copied in the new row as placeholders. To delete a set, simply swipe left on a set.
To edit your saved log, navigate to your Log History and tap the menu and select Edit. Tap Save to save your changes. The date and time on your log will not change and will be the same as the time you completed your workout.
You can access the exercise and rest timer while logging. The custom timer icon at the top will change depending on the type of timer you can top.
To switch units on an exercise, tap the menu and select Switch to lbs or kg. To switch units globally, navigate to the Settings page in the Profile tab.
You can autostart the rest timer in a single exercise when you check a set, or when you complete all the exercises within a circuit in a round. To set this, tap on Turn on Auto Rest Time in the menu or you can do it on the Settings page.
Note: This option will not be visible in the logger menu if your trainer has not specified a rest time.
You can auto-check your sets when you tap the exercise timer and it runs out. To set this, tap on Turn on Auto Checking in the menu or you can do it on the Settings page.
Note: This option will not be visible in the logger menu if your trainer has not specified an exercise time.
Can I edit reps suggested by the creator when creating a log?
Yes, you can type over the gray pre-filled inputs within a log and input a different number. Likewise, if you want to track AMRAP sets, you can enter an input in place of the ‘F’.
How can I open the workout directly from my log?
To navigate to the workout directly, you can tap on the arrow next to the workout name.
How can I delete a log?
Tap on the ellipsis menu within History or on your log and select Delete. This action cannot be undone.
Can I log classes?
You can add notes within a class by tapping on the Logging icon.
