Building Routines FB Plus

Creating your own routines is a great way to target specific goals or get all your favorite workouts into one awesome personalized program. And just like a program or challenge, you can schedule a routine on the calendar and repeat it as many times as you like.

Creating a Routine

Let’s get started by creating a draft and adding workouts, then we’ll finalize and launch the routine.

Create a Draft Routine

  • From the main menu, choose Programs, then choose Routines.
  • On the Routines page, select the add Add a Routine button.
  • Enter your Title, Description and Length. Don’t worry about getting all this information exactly right, you can edit it anytime before launching.
  • Customize the look of your routine with a background color and icon. The color and icon are purely aesthetic, so pick whatever you like, they don’t have any impact on the data connected to the routine.
  • Lastly, select Save and Continue to save your draft and start building.

Adding Workouts

  • On the draft page, select add Search & Add Workouts to start crafting your routine.
  • You can add workouts from either the full workout list, from your favorites page, or from your custom workouts list.
  • There are two ways to add a workout:
    • Select the library_add Add to Routine icon on the workout card.
    • Select the library_add Add to Routine link on the workout detail view.
  • On the routine schedule pop-up you can select all the days on which you would like to add this workout.
  • Be sure to select Update Routine to save your additions. If you have a longer routine, you may need to scroll to see the update button.
  • Repeat these steps as many times as needed to fill out your routine.
  • As long as your routine is in draft mode, you can continue to add or edit and it will save your progress until you’re done, even if you leave the site and come back later.
