Our fitness tracker is more of a tracker, not a planner. You can record those workouts in the tracker, either as you do them or ahead of time. Not sure if that gives you the answer you were looking for, but I hope it helps.

Are there any workout planning tools here?

I'm starting a strength training program (all dumbbells) after years of what amount to toning exercises. There is a preparatory period of 12 weeks that is really basic, but it would be nice to track my weights, etc.

The first month is 1 set of 8-12 reps of around a half dozen lifts, as much weight as I can lift for that number of reps. The second month will be 2 sets, the third 3 sets. This will be 2 or 3 times a week. After that first 12 weeks I'll start a regular program,

I'm also integrating it with my usual mainstays: cycling and a bit of running. There are specific injury prevention exercises too, in addition to the slow start. "Core" is a massively overused word, but they fall in that category.

I looked but couldn't find anything here. I expect it's spreadsheet time for me . . .

In case anyone is interested the references I am using are NSCA's "Strength Training" ( www.nsca.com/Store-Detail/?CID=1270 ) and "Developing Endurance" ( www.nsca.com/Store-Detail/?CID=4065 ).
