Workout Routines Builder
The workout routine builder is where you can personalize your workout routines that were created using the muscle selection wizard or where you can create workout routines from scratch.
On the left side you'll see the fitness exercise database which you can use to preview the animated illustrations and the targeted muscle information for any fitness exercise.
This exercise database contains over 600 different exercises and can be filtered by main muscle group.
You can also use the search field to dig up an exercise quickly.
Finally you may restrict the list to only show exercises that can be performed using equipment that is available to you.
On the right side you'll see your workout routine in its current shape.
The option buttons located on top will allow you to export the routine to a .pdf file in order to print or email it; to add workout days to your routine; to rename the currently selected day; and finally specify the number of sets and reps to allocate to all of the exercises.
You may add, remove, and change the order of any exercise in your workout routine by using drag-and-drop.
In one quick view, you may review the names of each exercise, the main muscle group each targets (by color codes), the starting and finish positions as well as the number of sets and number of reps to use.
Workout Routine Creation Wizard
The workout routine creation wizard is a way for you to let FitnessBliss build you a frame (or a template) for your workout routines.
It will ask you to specify the frequency with which you workout (times per week) and the length you want each of your workout routine sessions to last (specified in number of exercises).
In the following step you'll get to tell FitnessBliss which muscle groups you want your workout routine to target.
You tell FitnessBliss how to populate your workout routine using the number of stars you assign to each muscle groups (more stars = more exercises).
Finally you get to tell FitnessBliss if you want your workout routine to include cardio exercises that would complement the strength training exercises.
As soon as you hit the "Create Routine" button, FitnessBliss will take all of your answers into consideration and build you a personalized workout routine, which you can then manually edit until you are totally satisfied with it and export to a .pdf file (described below).
Workout Routine .pdf File Export
When you have completed the workout routine creation process you have the option of exporting your newly created routine to a .pdf file.
Doing so will allow you to print your workout routines effortlessly or simply safeguard them or even email them to someone else should you choose to.
There are three components to any exported workout routine .pdf file.
1 - The title page will display the workout routine name, the date it was created and the FitnessBliss user it belongs to.
It will also display a summary of your workout routine, detailing the number of strength exercises broken down by the main target muscle each targets.
2 - The workout routine log sheets will display the exercise names, the starting and finish positions as well as the specified number of sets and reps targeted by each exercise.
These sheets are intended to help you write down what weight you are lifting and on what date your workout session took place.
3 - Finally, the detailed information sheets provide you with textual instructions to complement bigger exercise images and more information is made available concerning the list of secondary muscles targeted by your exercises.
Workout Routines Progress Log
The workout routine progress log is where you can enter your workout results in order to keep records for them and in order to track your progress using charts later on.
You'll first need to define which routine and workout day you want to enter results for.
Then you simply pick the date this workout session took place and start logging your progress.
Workout Routines Progress History
The workout routine progress history lists the records for every workout session for which you have saved workout results.
The records are displayed by their dates and simply by clicking on any of them you are able to quickly review what took place during that workout session.
Never again will you lose track of your progress; never again will you have to approximate the weight you were comfortable with the last time you exercised.
Workout Routines Progress Charts
Finally, once you've successfully created your workout routines and began entering workout results for them you'll get the option to review your progress using charts.
These progress charts are available for every exercise for which a result has been tracked before.
Using these charts you will be able to instantaneously grasp the progress being made and judge whether corrective action needs to be taken.
