If you are completing a Sweat program that utilises weights, you will have the ability to log these weights either during the live workout or at the end of each set.
Weight logging is a fantastic way to keep track of your fitness progress and can be a great source of motivation, pushing you to continually challenge yourself during your workouts!
To log your weights, simply tap on the ‘Weight’ box, next to ‘Reps’, input the weight you’re using and select ‘Confirm’:
Alternatively, you can log your weights after completing your set by filling in the boxes below:
Once you have logged your weights, you can view these via the Workout Summary following your workout, or the next time you complete the same exercise via the 'History' tab!
Your logged weights will look like this within your workout overview:
You can access your workout overview and view your weight logging history for all past workouts by heading to your planner and tapping on a workout.
The Sweat app also allows you to track your weights with our Weight Tracking feature! Weight Tracking gives you access to your weight logging data for each of your exercises prior to and during your workouts.
You will be able to access your weight history by tapping on a workout to open the workout overview, then tapping on the specific exercise. This will open up the instructions to complete the exercise, and you will notice a ‘My History’ tab to the right of the 'Instructions' tab, where you will be able to track your weights from previous sessions as per the example below:
You are also able to view your History during an active workout by tapping on the exercise image. This will bring up the exercise instructions and your 'My History' tab.
For your weight history to appear, you must also be completing the exact same exercise. For example, while a glute bridge with a barbell and a glute bridge with an olympic barbell or dumbbell is the same exercise, they are not using the same equipment therefore the history will not show.
This also applies to slight variations of the same exercise, for example, if you log your weights for a regular dumbbell bent over row, these weights will not appear when you are completing a dumbbell bent over row with a neutral grip or reverse grip!
We also recommend logging the total weight lifted - As exercises such as a bench press utilize an Olympic Bar, you want to ensure you are also tracking the weight of your bar for consistency.
Hi, are you going to add this feature for the workouts completed on Apple Watch? (E.g. the ability to add weights or logs after a workout is completed or directly from the watch)
