Can you do it?  I've begun using some structured strength workouts from Sufferfest that aren't weight-based, so I need to just write out the workout in the comments and save the template.  However, it doesn't appear the templates save comments, which means I have to manually create it every time in my planned log.

I could create them as exercises, if there aren't too many, so they'd be available to everyone (and you). Would that work?

Not sure that would work as it involves an entire routine like "Sufferfest Beginner Strength Training 1A".  It's a video you follow with about a dozen different strength training sets.  Some of the moves are in our database and some aren't.  I just don't want to go through the hassle of creating 50 individual custom exercises (I already have like 20), if that makes sense.

I can copy and paste I guess if it's a pain.

What if I created an exercise called Sufferfest Beginner Strength Training 1A and linked the video in it with all of your comments?

I just created a custom exercise for all of the different videos/routines that I use and will leave it at that.

Sufferfest doesn't have links to videos anymore - you have to download an app and that is what runs the workouts.

This brings up another issue -- Sufferfest, Zwift, etc. do not import into BT.  They can be set up to automatically go to Strava and Garmin Connect but they don't make there way to BT automatically. Tapiriik worked for a while but that seems kaput now.  Would it be possible to set up a manual bulk import of FIT files?  In other words, I download five FIT files (or grab them from dropbox, etc.), upload all five of them at once and have the importer parse them and say, "this is a Tuesday bike, this is a Wednesday bike, this is a Wednesday strength, this is a Friday sport."  Runalyze does something like that and it's a lot more convenient than importing one at a time.

Alternatively, could BT look at partnering with FitnessSyncer? I'm not sure if that would do the trick or not.

I just emailed FitnessSyncer to see what it takes to partner with their service. I'd rather do that than pay for programming to make further changes that are likely to be obsolete as soon as one of the other services or devices changes their file configurations.
