Adding a Workout 


Select the date the workout will be released. 
This data is ONLY used to order the workouts on the app. 

It will not publish the workout automatically.


Determine whether the workout is visible and can be performed. 

Draft: workout is not visible to anyone other than competition organizers. 
Keep workout as a draft until it has been officially released to the public. 

Published: workout is available to everyone. Athletes can view the details, start the workout, and report scores. 
Set workout to published when you want participants to view and perform it. 

Locked: workout is visible but cannot be performed. 
Set workout as locked when the deadline to complete the workout has been met. 
Athletes will be able to see the workout details but can't report scores. 

Note: ErgZone will not publish or lock workouts automatically. It needs to be done manually.

If you want to have it done automatically, let us know. 


PM5 allows up to 50 intervals per workout. 

Interval Type & Target 

Intervals can be: per Time, Distance, or Cals (calories).


Provide SPM/RPM if the intervals have a rate cap.

Note: athletes MUST complete the interval at or under the rate provided if this information is present.
Otherwise, the workout will be invalid and won't be used for the leaderboard.
For example, if interval SPM is set to 24 and the athlete finishes it with an average of 25, the score will not be valid, and the workout needs to be redone. 


Provide rest in "minutes: seconds" format, such as 1:30, 2:00, etc. 

If it is up to the athlete to determine the rest, check the option "undefined." 
Note: PM5 will only accept rest under 10 minutes.


Notes will be displayed on the app at the beginning of the interval for 15 seconds.
