The “Manually Add an Activity” feature, allows coaches and athletes to input workout activity data, directly into athletes' calendars, without the need for FIT file uploads. This feature proves particularly useful in situations where automatic tracking is not feasible; for example, when athletes don't have a watch, forget to wear it, or experience a drained battery during a workout.

So, follow the step-by-step guide below to learn how to manually add an activity to your ScienceTraining calendar.

Step 1: Go to the athlete’s calendar

Start by logging in to your ScienceTraining coach or athlete account and navigating to the athlete's calendar—or your own calendar if you're an athlete. 

To add a completed workout to the calendar, locate the "+" symbol on the desired day and click on it. Keep in mind that you can only add workout activities for the present day or any past dates.

Step 2: Select the Activity type

After clicking the "+" button, a window will appear displaying all the available sports (Running, Cycling, Swimming) as well as the option for Strength workouts. Select the appropriate sport type for the activity you want to add.

Step 3: Enter Workout Details

After choosing the activity type, a new window will appear containing fields to input the specific details of your workout. To calculate stress accurately, athletes must provide — apart from the type of sport — the duration, the distance, and, preferably, one of the following: 

  • Average Heart Rate

  • Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) 

  • Average Power (for cycling)

    • For strength activities, only the duration field is required

Fill in the necessary information and then click the "Save" button.

Once you add an activity, you’ll observe that it appears as either blue or green on the assigned day in the calendar. The blue color indicates that there are no previously scheduled activities for that day. However, if there is already a similar activity scheduled on that day, it will be highlighted in green. In the example provided below, you can see that there was no similar activity scheduled.

Note: In addition to the required fields, athletes have the option to include relevant details or comments about the workout.

And that concludes the process! In three simple steps, you can maintain a comprehensive activity record that will help you streamline your training in the long run.
