NOTE:  You will need a Bluetooth (BLE) compatible heart rate strap to use the TRAIN feature within Morpheus.  Both the M5 and the M3 or M7 are compatible.

Select TRAIN from within the app navigation.

  • Conditioning should be selected for training that is primarily focused on any kind of cardio in the workout.  
  • Strength should be selected if the workout will only include strength training. 
  • Mixed should be selected if the session will include both types of training.

NOTE: Heart rate zones will not be displayed if Strength is selected, though Morpheus will still track heart rate and volume and intensity via RPE at the end of the session to help monitor recovery.

NOTE: if using your M5, you should set your M5 into TRAIN mode so that you can see your heart rate prior to trying to connect it to the app.

On the M5 You will see one of the Workout Type screens shown below.  

  • Use the touchscreen to toggle to Cardio, Mixed, or Strength.  Be sure to select the same workout type in the M5 as you will in the app.
  • Press the side button to confirm your choice.

  • After you confirm your Workout Type by pressing the side button, the M5 will search for a heart rate signal, either from itself or a device you previously paired in #4 above.

  • Once you’ve chosen your workout type, select Start.  Be sure to select the same workout type in the app as you did on the M5.
  • Choose either the Bluetooth heart rate monitor of your choice or the Morpheus M3/M7 or M5 from the list of detected devices, then press Okay.
  • The app will connect to your heart rate monitor and display your heart rate in the center gauge located in the middle of the screen.
  • Select Start.

Your heart rate will appear in the middle of the screen and will be the same color as the zone that you are in.  The 3 different sections of the semi-circle zone gauge represent the 3 heart rate zones.  Your heart rate zones will be depicted as follows: Blue for recoveryGreen for conditioning, and Red for overload.

The bottom of the screen can be swiped to one of 4 different views depending on what you want to see.

You can change the time range displayed within the Live and Chart views by tapping anywhere on the graph. 

To pause or end the workout, select the blue Pause button and follow the prompt to Finish or Resume.

When you press Finish, a post-workout questionnaire will appear.  Answer the questions by moving the slider scale anywhere from 0 to 10.

When rating workout difficulty (RPE), 10 is the most difficult and 0 is the least.

When rating your performance, 0 is your worst performance; 10 is your best performance.  

Press Submit once you’ve completed the questionnaire.

You can visualize your workout summary in the Results screen.  To view your time in each training zone, tap on the zone color you wish to view on the circle graph.

After you complete a workout, make sure to return to the home (Track) screen to see your recovery score adjust up or down, depending on volume and intensity of the workout.  Morpheus analyzes your time in each zone, total time, average heart rate, and RPE in order to calculate post-workout recovery score.

  • Very challenging workouts lasting 60+ minutes can cause a drop of 12-18%
  • Moderately challenging workouts lasting 45-60 minutes can cause a drop of 8-12%.
  • Recovery based training lasting 30-45 minutes can often stimulate an increase in recovery of 3-5%.
