Creating Exercises

Your exercise library will come equipped with all of TrainHeroic's exercises. In fact, your library will update in real time with any enhancements that TrainHeroic makes. With CoachHeroic, you can add to your library by building your own exercises anytime. 

First, Login to your coach account. 

You can create exercises while building workouts by clicking on the Create New Exercise option from the exercise library.

Or, you can select Exercises from the Library drop down in the left hand navigation.

You'll notice a list of All Exercises, with an additional option to view My Exercises. The All Exercises option is a list of all of the exercises in your library. This list includes all of the exercises that TrainHeroic has created, along with any exercises that you've added to your library.

Let's get started by creating a new exercise. Select Create New on the right-hand side of the page.

Add the exercise's details. Keep in mind that you can always edit exercises too.

Simply add a YouTube or Vimeo link to the Video URL Field to add a video. Anytime that your exercise is added to a workout, the movement name, points or performance, and video will display for your athletes. It will look like this.

Next, you'll notice a few fields to update on the right hand side. These are NOT necessary but they can save you some time in the long term and importantly, make sure that your exercise library is setup to track your athletes' progress in the future.

First, set the default parameters so that you don't need to set these each time you add this exercise to a workout. For example, in the example below, I'll always program this exercise (well... not always but you get my point) for reps at a particular % of an athlete's 1 rep max. So, I'll set that up like this:

Next, setup the analytics section so that this exercise is tracked as a Back Squat. When programming at a percentage, we need to know which exercise to reference the percentage from. Importantly, setting up an exercise to be tracked allows TrainHeroic to graph your athletes' progress over time. It also allows TrainHeroic to give you analytics on the health and balance of your programming.

If you're looking to track an exercise but can't find an exercise in our database to match your exercise, please let us know by emailing support@trainheroic.com.

CoachHeroic saves in real-time, so all of your changes are saved as you create an exercise. Click away from the exercise creation screen anytime to exit.

If you have questions about creating exercises, or anything else, please let our team know. Email support@trainheroic.com anytime if you need a spot.
