Using the Workout Editor



  • Understanding the Main Sections

    (see image below)

    1. General workout fields (Name, Plan, Creator, Type and Description). This section is where you set the name of the workout and other optional fields. These fields are useful if you later want to filter the workouts and keep your workouts organized.
    2. The interval list, this is where you set the Interval length, power target, etc. Most of your work when creating workouts will be in this section.
    3. A Graph preview of the current workout being created. You can click any Interval and it will select the related interval in the list. Green, gray and red boxes are power, cadence and heart rate targets respectively.

    The "Repeat Change" Column is a fast way to change the target inside a Repeat Loop. In the above example, the first interval of the Repeat will have an increase of its Power target by 2% each time the loop is done. In the first loop, the target stay unchanged at 100% FTP, then 102% and finally 104%.
