Tabata and Intervals (HIIT) are here! Introducing another major installment to the Kilomodo suite of workout types supported. We’re so excited to get this capability into your hands. Interval training is popular for good reasons; it works! Now you can accurately track those workouts and evaluate your progress over time. So here is what you can expect between these two workouts types.
For Tabata workout scoring, Kilomodo will ask for your ‘minimum’ rep total for a round per movement. Optionally, you may also provide your ‘maximum’ reps for a given round for range evaluation. For metrics, we multiply the total rounds for a given movement by the ‘minimum’ reps accomplished.
For Intervals (HIIT) workout scoring, Kilomodo will ask for the running total of reps per movement. As you would expect, we provide a total credit for metrics for reps when scoring for Intervals.
Workout building for Tabata and Intervals is identical with the only difference being the scoring and calculated metrics. Each work/rest cycle allows for one movement. Rest between movement transitions is optional, and alternating between movements is up to the workout programmer to describe with workout builder.
To assist with the planning and design of a workout, we also provide a total workout time (including rest) at the bottom of the workout summary.
We’re looking forward to seeing our community take advantage this new update. Thank you all for the support and feedback you provide us as we go through this journey.
We’d also like to give a big shout out and special thanks to our ambassadors! They have spent countless hours providing feedback guidance for our community. They make all the difference having their eyes and ears in the gyms telling us what’s working well and what is needed. We’re very grateful for that, and we are looking forward to seeing that community continue to grow. Our ambassadors is what makes what we do possible.
The Sets & Reps workout style now supports complexes. Movements added to a group in a Sets & Reps workout can now be linked together as a single movement to form a complex. This makes for easier scoring and percentage assignment to any movement within the complex.
While building a Sets & Reps workout, assign the percentage value you want to work from on a movement of your choice. We’ll take care of the rest by updating the workout summary and filling in the score sheet with your numbers based on your Rep Max PR for that movement.
What about PRs?! Kilomodo does detect PRs for any movement within the complex so we got you covered there. This means that although you may be working on percentage based effort for your best movement, if you PR on anything else as a result, we’ll track that for you.
Awesome, but we didn’t stop there.
Large screen format is now available for web casting. This is perfect for gyms that have large screen TVs as a way to display the workout of the day in style.
You can also flip through any workout posted to the gym(s) you follow by clicking on the selector on the upper right hand side of the screen which brings up a list of workouts to select, allowing easy navigation while briefing a class.
But that’s not all either.
Sets & Reps now supports all movement types which includes gymnastics/body weight movements as well as monostructural/cardio movements like running, rowing, and double unders. This is ideal for ‘Not For Time’ type workouts. So now you can skip the scoring aspect, but get the credit you deserve.
Wait there is more?
Max Reps now supports gymnastics/body weight movements. Which means you can now score going for a max set of unbroken pull ups. Yes! T-Rex arms for the win!
Anything else? Yup!
Performance enhancements have also been made to increase the snappiness of our page load times. We won’t bore you with the details. Just know that we’re not just focused solely on adding features but also improving the experience by making Kilomodo faster.
Okay, that’s it right?
No, but the rest is nerdy bug fixes and minor enhancements.
Thank you once again for supporting Kilomodo.
EMOM is here!
This first release of EMOM is something we are quite happy to announce. We hope you enjoy it! While designing EMOM, we wanted to allow for as many possible workout scenarios our devilish programming coaches could conjure. In our testing, we were quite pleased to find that we had unlocked some interesting possibilities we have never before seen in the wild. Coaches, get your thinking caps on. We think you are going to like this!
Imagine the following:
EMOM for 12m
0, 1, 2 min
– 20 Double Unders
– 5 Burpee
– 1 Barbell Clean @ 90%, 95%, 100% RM
REPEAT x 2
This is a 12 minute EMOM where every minute for the first three rounds, an athlete would do 20 Double Unders and 5 Burpees.
On the fourth round, the athlete would complete one Barbell Clean @ 90% of their 1RM. On minute 4, the athlete would be back to three 1 minute rounds of 20 Double Unders and 5 Burpees. Once again, the athlete will go back to the one Barbell Clean, but this time at 95% of their 1RM. And so on, one more time thru to complete the workout with a one Barbell Clean at 100% of their 1RM.
This is just one of the thousands… or millions of imaginable combinations possible with the new EMOM workout builder. Check it out at https://iam.kilomodo.com/workouts/compose. Play around and let us know what you think at https://kilomodo.uservoice.com/
With this release, we also embedded a link to workout builder from mobile. On the menu, you can now see a link labeled ‘Workout Composer’ which will take you to our web version of Kilomodo. Once there, you can create and schedule workouts. Any workout scheduled will be immediately available for scoring on mobile iOS.
Thanks again for scoring, and stay tuned for more updates.
Crazy to think PRs weren’t available out of the gate. As with any journey, it begins with the first step. Or in our case, the first score.
Here is what has changed with the latest update:
– PR badges now show in the community feed and scoring results
– Added a quick link to auto-populated percentages calculator from movement PR
– Integrated Workout Planner into Sets and Reps score sheet
– PR search
– Added quick link to workout results from PR list
– PR history graphs
– Enhanced pounds and kilograms weight preferences with auto conversion
– Avatar loading performance enhancement
– Bug fixes
Now that we are on solid ground with essential features for Apple iOS, we are back on the road to building core functionality. Our first stop, EMOM.
As always, we are thankful that you have joined us on this journey.
This week we have rolled out an enhancement view for workout PRs. Available now is the ability to graphically view all scores for any well known, or repeated workout you’ve scored. This feature is available on the Personal Records page linked under Performance. This view also provides a table with the date you scored the workout, along with a link to the workout detail page where you can review the scores of other athletes that also scored that workout.
The Kilomodo team has been working non-stop to launch our newest version of the platform.
In this new release we have officially entered our BETA and rolled out new features that will take your workout tracking to the next level.
One of the most significant features will now help athletes keep track of their Skill & Strength workouts. We have added the ability for the athlete to keep track of workouts that include: Read More
