StrengthMark is easy to get started. Whether you're training for a strength competition, getting in shape, or simply want to track progress, start here with StrengthMark.
Logging a Workout
When you open StrengthMark for the first time, you will see an empty session on today’s date. This empty session is labeled New Session. Sessions labeled New Session are placeholders for any sessions you create by adding exercise sets. This means that there are no sets on this view yet and it is ready for you to add your first set.
Add a SetTo add your first set:
- Type an exercise name in the field Add a set..., e.g. “deadlift”.
- The search results will populate below the search bar with the closest match to “deadlift.”
- Tap the top row to create a new deadlift set.
Once you add the first set, you’ll notice a few things have changed on your screen:
- The session has been renamed to “Session 1″.
- There is a deadlift set with a blank light blue bar below it.
There is a new session placeholder to the right of the current session.
After adding your first set, you now have a session on this date. This session can filled in with more sets, renamed, copied to another date, used for templates, or deleted. When you save values on the detail screen, those values will show up as fields below the exercise name. The “New Session” placeholder is there for you to add another session to the current day, e.g. if you want to separate active recovery or mobility work from your weight training.
Put in the numbers for your set
You’re ready to put in the weight and reps for the first deadlift set in your new session. Tap the middle of the row in set 1 to pull up the set details.
When you complete the set, tap the Done button.
If this is a max effort set, then tap the Max Effort button.
Max Effort and Done
Any time a set is marked as both Done and Max Effort, it is identified as a possible personal record. These are the best sets for a given exercise on the Personal Records tab. Once you're satisfied with the values of your first set, tap Save to return to the session view.
