It will not publish or change the workout status automatically.


Determine who can view the workout and whether it can be performed. 


When set as Draft, the workout is only visible to admins.


A published workout is available for all group members to see.

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


When set as locked, the workout is visible to everyone in the group but cannot be performed. 

Set the workout as locked when the deadline to complete the workout has been met. 

If the workout is part of a competition, athletes can see the workout details but can't report scores. 

Controlled Race

When set to a controlled race, the workout will require the group admin or race organizer to set the countdown to start the race. Learn more here

Note: ErgZone will not publish or lock workouts automatically.

It needs to be done manually.

The PM5 limits workouts to have up to 50 intervals per workout.

Interval Type & Target 

Select the workout type and provide the workout length.




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.
