Exercise name

You can change the title of an exercise to suit your needs.

  1. Click on the “Pencil and Paper” icon.

  2. Change the title.

  3. Save your changes.

💡 In the example above, the device number has been added in the title to help the client at the training room.


All default exercises come with a description. This can be modified.

  1. Click on the “Pencil and Paper” icon.

  2. Change the description.

  3. Save.

💡 Save this title/note as default

By selecting this option, you will save your changes for the exercise in your personal exercise bank.

So, every time you select this exercise, the modified grade and title will be displayed. Your changes will become permanent.

Repetitions or duration

By clicking on “Rep”, you will be able to select whether you prefer to prescribe a number of repetitions or a duration for your exercise.

So if you want to prescribe an exercise over a period of time (e.g., isometry), you can select “Duration”.

⚠️ Note that this item is only available in “Weight” mode. To find out more, click here.


It is possible to change the configuration to make every week different from each other.


  • Prescribe a progression of loads every week;

  • Change the number of sets or repetitions, depending on the week.

To do this, simply click on the padlock.

❗ The number of weeks depends on the chosen duration and can be modified in the main program section (outside the session).

The duration will be the same for all program sessions.


Add sets

  • Hover over the series to see “arrows” appear. Clicking on them will increase the number of arrows.

Make the sets independent of each other

  1. Click on the padlock.

  2. Once opened, you will be able to modify each of the sets independently of the others. The reverse is also true.


The tempo is the time in seconds during which the movement will be performed.

⚠️ If the tempo has no separation, the software will calculate the whole number for the duration of the exercise.

2-0-2-0 = 2 minutes

2020 = 1010 minutes

Further information:

  • The tempo is usually four beats, but sometimes only three are used.

  • To separate the digits, we often use the hyphen ( - ), but the slash ( / ) also works.

  • You can replace a number with an “X” to signify a contraction at maximum speed.

Explanation of the “universal” tempo: 2-0-2-0

  • The first number represents the eccentric phase.

    • Ex: 2 seconds to lower the bar with the bench press.

  • The second number represents the isometric phase at the bottom of the movement.

    • In this example, no stopping.

  • The third number represents the concentric phase.

    • The 2 corresponds to the time taken to raise the bar.

  • The 4th and last digit represent the isometric phase at the top of the movement.

    • Still no stops in this example.


This is the length of time you rest between sets. You can enter a time in the form MM: SS (Minutes: Seconds)

  • Click on the arrows or enter a number to change it.

Options offered by the “⚙️”

Thanks to the “⚙️” option, you can add different elements to your prescription.


If you wish to prescribe an exercise in which the movements will be done alternately (e.g., one repetition with the left arm, then another with the right arm), select “Alternate”. So the software will take this option into consideration in its calculation.

Save time by cloning attributes from one exercise to another

  1. Click on the two-leaf icon (copy).

  2. Click on “paste” on the other exercises to clone the attributes.
