Online Workout Timer


You can find the online workout timer here:

http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.html

Work length, warning time, and rest length are all configurable as well as some other features (font sizes, colors, sounds, etc.)

It works with IE 6.0, FireFox, and possibly other browsers (not sure though - I don't have the resources to test all configurations). It is 100% Javascript and DHTML plus some .WAV files so it is very "lightweight", nothing to install really - no flash, no ActiveX, etc.

It does use cookies to remember your settings.

You may load the page on your pc to run it locally, as opposed to having to connect to the internet. The only disclaimer on downloading is that you won't get the latest bug fixes or cool new features, so be sure to check back on this page occasionally.

To download:

1. Download this zip file (it contains the complete .html and .wav files)
2. Unzip the file contents to some location on your harddrive
3. Open the timer.html page with your web browser
4. IE 6.0 may warn you about blocking script access. Just click on the prompt and allow it to run.

If you have feedback or comments, please reply to this thread. And finally, if there are any features missing which would be useful, please let me know and I'll try to add them.

Changes
2/17/2006 - There is now a "Delay before start" option. This causes a small delay between when the Start button is pressed and the actual round starts. Useful to get yourself in position for the first round.
3/7/2006 - Added a zero second rest option - so you have continuous work rounds.

Known Bug List
FIXED 04/12/2006 - If you are on IE and have the latest service packs , you might see this:

To correct, simply go here and load the latest version of the page: http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.html


FIXED 2/16/06- FireFox - The "Round Begin" sound uses the default bell and can't be changed. The "Warn" sound uses the default bell too . I hope to have this fixed soon.
FIXED 2/18/06- All browsers - Reseting during a rest period causes the round to not increment.

All browsers - If you click "Reset" and "Start" quickly you may get two instances of the countdown , which results in a really quick countdown.

While "field testing" I found another bug - if you hit Reset while resting, you get cheated out of a round

Will have that fixed shortly.

Here's a shot of it "in action"

Work out timer,

This is an interesting idea.

Now in the "old days", I personally did this with individually edited music tapes. I would edit music tapes of various songs. I'd start out with a slow song (110, 120 beats per minute) and record it. then record, 30 - 45 seconds of silence, then about 5 seconds of the next one (my warning notice..). Then a few seconds later, the second song would play, (a little faster, maybe 130 beats per minute). I would do this for the entirety of the 90 minute tape, (both sides) and hit to three to five songs a workout. each song was at least three minutes, and the beat of the music guided my pace.

I had slow, medium and fast tapes. depending on my mood. I started doing the same with CD, but don't record the rest period silence anymore.

You might add a metronome timer to your invention. So you can guide your punching speed. Punching at 140 beats per minute for 3 minutes is quite a workout. Your metronome could go from 110 beats per minute to about 180 or so. To try 170 - 180 try hitting to some American BlueGrass music. At about 1-minute into this clip, (Rolling in my sweet babies arms and Foggy mountain breakdown) are clicking out about that speed. That's a l-o-n-g three minutes to keep up with.

I have to be honest I haven't really tried hitting to music yet. I'm tone def - or would that be rythmically challenged? I think I may give the metronome idea a shot though. I'll keep you posted.

Online Workout Timer v1.1 Beta

A new version of the free workout timer is available here:

http://www.speedbagforum.com/timerv1-1-beta.html

This new version consists of some bug fixes, plus the ability to save multiple sets of options.

For example, I have a 3 minute / 60 second rest option for Heavy Bag, a 45 sec/10sec rest option for stretching, a Tabata interval etc.

All of this could be done with the previous version but it involved a lot more mouse clicks. Once you save your options you can now retrieve them with 2 clicks.

As always:
1. No download or install is necesary, just run it right from the URL
2. It works with IE and FireFox. Not sure about other browsers - feedback is welcome!
3. I believe it will work on Mac/Linux/Windows - If you find that not to be the case, please let me know

Please let me know if you find any bugs. You can find the original workout timer here: http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.html

If you are on the latest XP service packs and fixes you may be getting this multiple times when loading the page


The latest version of the page has corrected this problem (Long story short - Microsoft loses lawsuit, and everyone with ActiveX controls on a page has to suffer. ActiveX control is used to play the sounds).

Simply go here and the problem should no longer occur:
http://www.speedbagforum.com/timerv1-1-beta.html

If you run disconnected with no net connection, please unzip this file to the location of your choice. This zip contains the the fixes required.

Timer Question

Hi Tim,
I think the timer is excellent
Is it possible to run this program on a pocket PC? The one i use runs off Windows 5.0. It would be great if i could save the programme to the mda then when i'm away or on holiday i've still got the timer available

I'm not very technically minded when it comes to these things, so sorry if this seems a dumb question.

Take care

Steve

Glad you like it.

I believe it will run off of a pocket pc, but I really can't try it. Download the zip file here and unzip it to somewhere on your pocket pc, then open the timer page with the web browser... I don't have access to a pocket PC so I can't test it myself
