How to Use the Timer

You can change the timer settings during an active workout. Press and hold on to the timer field to open up a menu of different choices.

You can set your rest time, if you want the timer to start automatically, and if you want it to count up instead of down.

You can also set different resting times for different exercises. Click on Add exercise and choose your settings. Click on the selected exercise to change the time. To save, click Update time.

You can also have the timer in full-screen mode. Click on the timer in your active workout, and it will enter full-screen mode. You can choose if you want to show or hide your next set, and it’s also possible to mark sets as done in this view. When you want to exit the full-screen mode, click on the arrow in the upper left corner.

  1. Does the timer ever advance to the next set. I lost count as I assumed it would just tell me I was finished all six sets and when I checked I was still in set one??

    1. Hi Colin,

      In the fullscreen mode – you still have to mark the set as done. This can be done by tapping the number of the set you want to mark as done, in the fullscreen mode. If you need more assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at app@strengthlog.com.
      Kind regards, Sandrine

  2. Is there anyway to make the timer go off while you are using other apps?
    If I use my phone for something else I wont get a notification that my rest is over until I switch back to the app.

    1. Hi Henrik,
      You have to allow the phone to send you notifications, and also make sure that your phone isn’t on silent (if you want the timer to make a sound). That should do it 🙂 If you still have problems, please reach out to us at app@strengthlog.com.
