  1. Supersets

  3. Amrap

Utilize the Superset feature to create power blocks where your client will move quickly from one exercise to another without taking a break for rest.  The focus is to increase endurance and strength training.

Similar to the Superset, the Circuit feature allows you to create exercise sequences. Circuit training is a style of workout where you cycle through several exercises (usually five to 10) targeting different muscle groups with minimal rest in between.
