What is a workout?

The workout is a compilation of some intervals.
Each interval has the time and tempo. By going to play in turn, you will be able to create a pattern of changing the tempo.

"Sample2" have three intervals as follows.
interval1: 1min BPM:80 ramp:immediate
interval2: 1min BPM:100 ramp:10sec
interval3: 1min BPM:120 ramp:10sec
total time:3min

The inclination is a time of changing tempo, from the tempo of the last interval to the tempo of the interval.
For example, the tempo of the interval2 is BPM100, and tempo of the previous(interval1) is BPM90. It changes over a period of 10 seconds, from BPM90 to 100.
In other words, interval2 is 1min, but continue to tempo up gradually over a period of 10sec from BPM90 to 100, and the state of BPM100 is 50sec.
