In my spare time I’ve been working on a program for tracking Escalating Density Training workouts.
The basic idea is that at the beginning of your workout you enter a time period (e.g. 15 minutes) and select which exercises you’re working. You can also specify a previous workout to use as a comparison. Each time you complete a set you just click the appropriate button for the number of reps you just did. Your progress is tracked and a real-time chart shows your progress so you can easily tell whether you’re on track to beat your last workout (which is the main reason I wrote it).
A countdown timer is also displayed during the workout and, if necessary, you can even pause and resume . The comparative charting is actually pretty cool. You can tell at a glance if you’re falling behind on beating your PR.
All of the workout data is stored to disk and you can switch between different users/clients (possibly useful for a trainer).
It can be downloaded at www.brienv.com . There is still polishing left to do but it’s fully functional now. I’m posting this early version to get an idea if there’s any interest in a program like this. If there is, I’ll try to put a final version together with a single-file installer in the next week or two.
Any comments are welcome.
