What is a workout?

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

`Sample of Workout` have ten intervals as follows.
interval1: 1min BPM: 80 inclination: immediate
interval2: 3min BPM: 100 inclination: 10sec
interval3: 7min BPM: 120 inclination: 20sec
interval4: 3min BPM: 110 inclination: 10sec
interval5: 1min rest inclination: immediate
interval6: 1.5min BPM: 95 inclination: immediate
interval7: 1min BPM: 110 inclination: immediate
interval8: 1min BPM: 100 inclination: 10sec
interval9: 8.5min BPM: 90 inclination: 20sec
interval10: 3min BPM: 80 inclination: 30sec
total time: 30min

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 interval3 is BPM120, and tempo of the previous(interval2) is BPM100. It changes over a period of 20 seconds, from BPM100 to 120.
In other words, interval3 is 7min, but continue to tempo up gradually over a period of 20sec from BPM100 to 120, and the state of BPM120 is 6min and 40sec.
