Here are some common questions about Jackedalope.

Getting

What can I configure for a location?

For each location, you can give it a name, and configure what equipment is available to use.  Working out @ home and you only have an exercise band and a bench? No problem!  Going to the gym and they have everything? Great!  You can change these settings  anytime you want.

How do I configure a simple workout?

Configuring a simple workout is easy. Give it a name, decide how many exercises you want to include, then pick one or more muscle groups!

Name the workout

Enter a name


Total Number of Exercises

Enter number of exercises


Muscle Groups

What is an advanced workout?

Advanced workout configurations are only slightly different than simple ones.  You still get to pick a name.  Instead of selecting the total number of exercises you want, you instead select how many exercises should target each muscle you select to target.  Then finally, pick the muscle or muscles you want to work on!
