Stroke Categories

Top  Previous  Next

There are an unlimited number of stroke categories that can be associated with each workout set when you create your workouts. Workout Manager starts out with the following Stroke Categories:




The Code can be up to 3 characters and the Category Name can be up to 30 characters. These names and abbreviations are included in Workout Manager to stimulate ideas.  Change them at any time using the icons or by clicking on Add, Edit, or Delete. Study the workouts you have written by hand in the past and try to cover all the possible categories that are of interest to you.  It may be that you are only interested in five stroke categories: free, back, breast, fly, and IM.  Initially set up what you need, and make any modifications later.


When creating a workout and when it comes time to enter a stroke category, click on the drop down menu button at the right side of the stroke combo box as shown below, and your pre-set stroke categories are displayed in alphabetical order in a scrolling pick list. Just click on the desired stroke category and it will be instantly placed in the stroke field.  Type the first letter of the desired stroke code and the highlight bar will "jump" to the first stroke code starting with that letter.
