Quickly build a sequence of related workouts
The progression interface provides a condensed version of the standard workout form for each day of the progression. You have all the same tools you need to build workouts, including sets, assessments, and inserting sets from an existing workout in the database.
INSERT A WORKOUT FROM THE DATABASE
If you already have a template for a workout you want to use in the progression, simply click the "Insert Workout" button for a given day.
CREATE A WORKOUT FROM SCRATCH
You can also just start creating workouts from scratch the same way you would in the normal workout form. Click the "Add Set" button to start adding sets to a workout. Once you've added some sets, you have all the familiar spreadsheet tools for building workouts—set attributes, row duplication and deletion, etc (see the Workouts guide for more details on using the workout builder).
COPY A PROGRESSION WORKOUT
After you've created a workout within the progression, you can easily copy it to other days in the progression. This is useful if all or most of the workouts in the progression follow the same general structure. To copy a workout, simply click the "Copy workout" button on the workout you want to copy.
After clicking the copy button, the interface changes to show selection indicators for each day in the progression. You can select certain days individually, or you can select entire rows and columns at once. After you've made your selection, click the "Copy to selected" link to the top right of the progression table to copy the workout to the selected days.
By default, the workouts are named after the progression. But you can easily change the workout names if you want.
If you want to add descriptions to the workouts, simply click the "Toggle Description" link to the top right of the progression grid. This will hide or show the workout description fields for each workout so you can edit them individually.
COPY / PASTE
Within the progression grid, you can copy and paste values from one workout to another. This can really help speed up progression building if there are repetitive patterns from workout to workout.
