    I too would like to see the superset option on the website where a (or multiple) supersets could be setup in advance for a given routine.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Hi Robert,

    I cant make it work in the app either. My workouts are containing only supersets. Sometimes exercise #3 get locked to #2 instead of #4. Can you implement an eaiser way to arrange supersets, triset and so on?

    I don't have a Superset button either, Not a happy Chappy :-(

    I am trying to setup 5 supersets of 3 exercises each. All I get is one monster superset!

    Trying to accomplish:
    Superset #1 Exercise #1 --> Exercise #2 --> Exercise #3 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #1 --> Exercise #2 --> Exercise #3 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #1 --> Exercise #2 --> Exercise #3 --> 1 min rest
    2 minute rest
    Superset #2 Exercise #4 --> Exercise #5 --> Exercise #6 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #4 --> Exercise #5 --> Exercise #6 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #4 --> Exercise #5 --> Exercise #6 --> 1 min rest
    2 minute rest
    Superset #3 Exercise #7 --> Exercise #8 --> Exercise #9 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #7 --> Exercise #8 --> Exercise #9 --> 1 min rest
    Exercise #7 --> Exercise #8 --> Exercise #9 --> 1 min rest
    2 minute rest

    1) How do you keep separate the supersets (android app)?
    • I entered 15 exercises.
    • Entered 3 sets and the reps for each (varies per exercise). 0 sec timer
    • Sync my droid (newest Jefit)
    • Select #2 to link with #1
    • Select #3 to link with #2 (all good so far)
    • Select #5 to link with #4 *AND* it links both with #3!!! YIKES!!!!!!!
    • Select #4 to unlink from #3 and the superset goes away!!!!!

    I am trying to do something similar. Is this possible to do BEFORE I WASTE ANY MORE TIME?
    Thanks

    Found it sort of works on android app but not right with the timing.

    Any update on when the possibility of setting the super sets at home and not at the gym?

    I haven't had too much trouble with supersets, tri-sets, etc. (Android) but you end up with no indication of the exercise linkages in the resulting log.

    In the above example, you should set the rest periods for exercises #1, #2, #4, #5, #7 & #8 to zero (so you move immediately into the next exercise within a round with no rest). Set the rest periods for exercises #3, #6 & #9 to 60s (so you get a minute's rest before starting the next round).

    As you've discovered, when you have two or more supersets, tri-sets, etc. in succession, the order in which you link the exercises can be a bit tricky to avoid accidentally linking adjacent supersets, tri-sets, etc. together. Starting from the top and remembering the link function links to the exercise ABOVE it, the order to link the exercises in your example would be as follows.

    To create first tri-set:
    #2 → #1
    #3 → #2
    To create second tri-set:
    #5 → #4
    #6 → #5
    And to create the third tri-set:
    #8 → #7
    #9 → #8

    If you're lucky the coloured linkage markers will be different for adjacent tri-sets (e.g. green for first, blue for second, green for third).

    Hello,

    sorry for necroing this thread but I figured there's no sense in starting a new one as I am trying to achieve something similar to sparty92. I have 4 supersets each with 2 excercises. After a round I want a 30sec rest and after 3 rounds I want 120sec rest. Is the way I've set it up in this screenshot the only way to do this?

    I mean it works but it's a bit tedious to add 3 times the same excercise with one set just so I can have different resting times.

    App should have a user friendly option for supersets
