1.) Utilizing the Exercise Database
- The exercise database contains around 500+ workouts, cardio exercises and stretches that are necessary for muscle building and weight loss. In the main menu, the user will have the option to either choose from the various muscle groups for the exercise that they are searching for, determine if cardio is their workout of choice or view all of the exercises currently in the database and perform a search function for the specific workout needed.
2.) Search Function
- The search function was created to allow the JEFIT user to search for a workout that meets their needs whether it is equipment based, muscle based or keyword searchable.
- For equipment-based exercises, the user is able to click check marks next to each name to determine whether or not the equipment is based upon the exercise that they are looking for.
1.) Start from the main menu and click the �Exercise� button, one in the Exercise menu click the �Select All� button on the bottom right corner, this will bring you to the Exercise Search Page.
2.) On this page you will be able to search for exercises based upon the keyword that is placed into the text field, the exact muscle group worked or the equipment involved with the workout.
3.) By entering the text such as �Barbell� you will receive all Barbell exercises. If you separate the workouts by the shoulder muscle group, you will get the shoulder exercises. With the equipment based exercises though, you will have to check or un-check the boxes to confirm you want the search to include that piece of equipment for the final outcome.
4.) After making the final decisions, click search and the JEFIT program will initiate the search for the workouts that meet the requirements.
3.) Custom Exercise Database
- In the custom exercise database list, this will feature all of the user-created exercises that are currently not listed in the JEFIT Exercise Database. On this page you will be able to create custom exercises that aren�t part of the exercise database as well as deleting any others that aren�t needed in the list.
4.) Creating a Custom Exercise
- The JEFIT Workout Application provides the user with the ability to create their own custom exercise of which aren�t featured in the JEFIT Exercise Database. A user is able to name their exercise, select the major muscle group designated for the workout as well as the sub muscles the exercise also targets. After saving, it will be able to used in a routine and the JEFIT Workout App will track the logs for the custom exercise.
- When viewing the custom exercises in your JEFIT App, the image that is displayed will feature an advertisement that asks you to rate the app. The reason which this image is shown is because the application doesn�t have an exercise image for the workout, so a default picture is set into place to fill the void of any image that is indeed missing for the workout.
5.) Viewing an Exercise Page
- When viewing an exercise page, there are multiple features and functions that a user will be able to use. The exercise page allows the user to view the animations for the current workout being viewed, a detailed description of the exercise pertaining to the main muscle groups worked, equipment used for the workout and step by step how to perform the exercise. On this page users are also able to utilize other functions:
1.) 1RM Chart is used to track the one repetition maximum for the current workout being viewed.
2.) The volume chart for each workout.
3.) Viewing past logs of the exercise.
4.) Notes posted about the workout for a future routine or from past executions of the exercise.
5.) Adding the workout to a routine day in the users routine list.
6.) Instant workout allowing the user to do the workout without having to add it to a routine, still tracking the logs of each set and rep performed.
- On this page you will notice various buttons on the page that lead to different types of data that will be displayed by the application in regards to the exercise at hand.
1.) The mountain graphs on the top of the page underneath the exericse animation will display the Total Volume Chart
2.) Next to the Total Volume Chart button is the 1RM or One Repetition Max button that is represented by a line graph.
3.) Following the 1RM button is a 1RM Goal bar that will show you the progress of your current 1RM to the goal that you have set for this exercise and by pressing the button next to it, represented by a flag, you will be able to set the current goal you would like to achieve as a 1RM for this exercise.
4.) Moving to the bottom of the page starting on the left, there is a folder with an up arrow placed upon it which allows the user to add this exercise to any of your workout days.
5.) Right next to the folder button is a button represented by a folded piece of paper, by clicking this button you are able to view all of the logs recorded for this current exercise.
6.) The pencil button to the right of the view logs button, allows you to write and create logs for the current exercise being viewed.
6.) 1 RM Chart
- The 1RM Chart, or known as the 1 Repetition Maximum Chart, is used to determine the maximum amount of weight the individual can execute for one repetition on that exercise. Each time a user records their logs for a workout, the JEFIT Workout Application calculates through the data given for the exercise, the amount of reps, weight and sets, just how much a user can perform as their maximum amount of weight for one rep.
7.) Vol. C
- The Vol C is the weight times reps times set. For example if you lift 50 pounds 8 times and do 3 sets that would be 1200 total pounds which would be the Vol C.
- The logs page for an exercise will display the global logs recorded over each time the workout has been executed by the user. It will display the date of the time the exercise was done starting with the earliest first along with the amount of sets, weight used with repetitions done, and the calculations of the 1 repetition maximum that could have been performed for the workout.
- By clicking on the actually logs themselves, the user has the ability to edit the information stored about the workout, from the weight to amount of sets done.
- Creating notes is an important feature for the user as it allows them to write personal messages to themselves regarding the routine of the week, any trouble with an exercise they might have had, preparing for a future workout, how the workout went, and any other special information they want to leave themselves.
10.) Adding Exercise To Routine
- To populate your routine list and the exercises within the routine of choosing, the user needs to be able to select the routine day that they want to place a certain workout in.
11.) Do It
- The �Do It� feature lets the user perform a workout without having to designate it to a routine, rather the user is able to go to the exercise page and click the �Do It� button to open up the created logs page. On this page the user can place in information regarding the weight for their exercise, the repetitions performed and the amount of sets for the workout. JEFIT will also record your logs for this exercise, for the next time that it is executed; the last logs will be shown.
- This feature will allow a user to click on an exercise, like the �Barbell Bench Press� and on that main menu of the exercise itself on the bottom right hand corner there will be a button called �Do It�. It refers to the new function we have integrated that takes the user from the exercise page and brings them to the Quick Logs/Timer page, from here the user can quickly type in the amount of weight that they are doing on that exercise and the amount of reps with that set. Also on the bottom of the page above the numerical pad, there is the Quick Timer function as well so that after an exercise is completed, the user types in the amount of seconds they want timed before moving on to the following set.
- The quick timer function utilizes the feature of the rest timer but without having to be navigated to the rest timer page. Users are able to set how much time they want for their rest period, then by clicking the start button, the application then counts down the timer until it hits zero initiating the alarm sequence for the next set or workout.
- Extra sets are also added into the feature allowing the user to add as many sets as they would like to their workout, without having to change preferences or go back and having to add the exercise into their routine and execute it again.
