The Strength Workout Library is a facilitation utility that helps you schedule muscular strength exercises for your athletes. Adding strength events on your athletes’ calendars helps you, as a coach, get new — or returning — athletes in shape, before getting them started with their endurance training plan for their goal race. This way, it’s easier for you to add strengthening workouts to their calendars, whenever necessary. 

Scheduled strength workouts also help your athletes have at their fingertips the complete preliminary training they’ll have to follow before starting their endurance plan, so that they won’t miss a workout. 

Strength events work like normal sports events on your athletes’ calendar. The difference lies in their creation; they are simpler, in the following ways:   

  1. No zones or HR settings are needed. You only need to adjust the number of sets, repetitions, intensities and rest periods for each workout.
    (e.g. Squats: 4 sets, 15 reps, 80% 1RM, 120’’ of rest)

  2. Incline and ascent are non-existent in this type of event.

  3. Stress is also a non existent parameter in this type of event. This type of stress is mainly mechanical. As such, we can’t calculate it with common measurement devices, such as sports watches.

You can set up Strength events to represent your athletes' muscular strength exercises, following the steps we describe below.
