  1. Press the "+1" button in action bar. Note that it adds one more minute or one more cycle to your training duration, as for our example, it added one cycle and now it's 16.
  • Note that this button works during any phase, including "preparing", and even if the training is paused.
  • NB! If your training duration is set in amount of time, and you press "+1" button, it might be increased more than for 60 seconds, as the session should comprise the integral amount of cycles.
