Important: Difference between ‘Add Exercise’ vs. ‘Add Recovery’
A repeat block is mostly a high-intensity exercise followed by a recovery phase. For the recovery exercise; we offer you two possibilities:
|Select Add Recovery to Repeat Block..||Select Add Exercise to Repeat Block..|
|If you select 'Add Recovery to Repeat Block' for the 2° exercise of a repeat block; the recovery after the last high-intensity exercise of the repeat block is not calculated in the automatic volume calculation.||If you select 'Add Exercise to Repeat Block' for the 2° exercise of the repeat block; the recovery after the last high-intensity exercise of the repeat block is calculated in the automatic volume calculation.|
|10' + (10' + 5' + 10') + 15' = 50'||10' + 2*(10' + 5') + 15' = 55'|
