Workout Guide

Workouts combine and define the manner in which exercises are performed, through variations of sets, weight, reps, distance, and time. All workouts you create on Branch Fitness will remain private to your account. As a premium member you also have the optional ability to publish your workouts to the Branch Fitness platform.

Creating New Workouts

Create and customize your workouts using the three-step Branch Fitness workout builder. Workouts you create will remain in your private library unless you decide to publish them to the community.

Workout Exercises
Exercises are added to workouts in step three of the Branch Fitness Workout Builder. You have a range of options to customize the workout. The "Easy" and "Advanced" tabs allow you to quickly add details to an exercise and its sets, such as time, rest, and notes.

Supersets and Circuits
The "Group" button on each exercise determines supersets and circuits. A superset is a group of exercises performed back-to-back with no rest in between. A circuit is a group of three or more exercises performed in the same fashion. To create a superset, ensure that the same group is selected for back-to-back exercises. For example, exercises with groups "A B B A" will create a superset of the "B Group" exercises. To create circuits, ensure that three or more exercises in a row have the same group ("A C C C A"). The added characters are listed for convenience. When creating supersets or circuits, make sure that each exercise in the group has the same number of sets.

AMRAP ("As Many Reps As Possible")
When creating a workout, you can specify "AMRAP" by leaving the Reps field for a set blank.

Exercise Notes
Any notes entered in the "Notes" field of the first set of an exercise will be carried over and displayed in the Workouts "Show" page and in its PDF. All other notes will only be displayed when editing that workout or when logging that workout.

Publishing Workouts

Once your workout is published and approved, it will be available for all users in the community. Users can add your workout to their library and link to it in any programs they create and/or publish. Once your workout is published, you will NOT have the ability to edit or delete it. You do retain the option to remove it from the community at any time, which prevents it from being published in the future.

When publishing a workout, you also publish all exercise versions (that are not already public) that are included as a part of your workout. All exercise versions included in a workout will be reviewed and approved as a part of the publishing process. Once any exercise versions you created are published, you will NOT have the ability to edit or delete them. You do retain the option to remove them from the community at any time, which prevents them from being published in the future.
