Questions upon questions – and the answers to them

Can you already start seeing your abs? That’s all the more reason to be able to use all the app’s features. And because many of our users ask the same questions, we have put together a list of the most frequently asked ones – so nothing more stands in the way of your sixpack.

Why can’t I add workouts or reps manually?”
The app only counts sit-ups that you actually do with your phone. You cannot add any workouts manually. In the overview, you can see which workouts you have completed and how many sit-ups you have already done.

Does the app work with every smartphone?”
To use the app, your smartphone needs a motion sensor. It is what counts your reps. Your phone doesn’t record any sit-ups? Then you should check if your phone is equipped with a motion sensor. (In some phones, this sensor is called “gyro” or “gyroscope”).

How do I need to hold my phone so it can record my sit-ups correctly?”
You need to hold your device with both hands. For the app to count your sit-ups, your phone needs to be in landscape mode and close to your chest.

I can’t see my activity on Runtastic.com. What’s happened?”
One reason could be that your Internet connection is not stable. This prevents your phone from uploading your workout. But don’t worry, it’s not lost! At the latest, when you do your next workout, the previous one will also be saved to Runtastic.com. You don’t want to wait that long? You can also try it this way: Log out and then back in again. Uploading works best when you are connected via WiFi.

What is the difference between the Leaderboard and the Statistics in the app?”
The “Statistics” menu item shows you information on your own training – how many sit-ups did you do last month? Directly in your app, there is also a leaderboard. Select this menu item to see your friends’ personal bests. Compare yourself with your friends and see, for example, who has done the most sit-ups this month, who has done the most in total, or who is leading for the year. You can check out the worldwide Leaderboard online at https://www.runtastic.com/de/pumpit. There you can find the rankings for sit-ups, push-ups, squats and pull-ups of people from all over the world.
