Seems like we can only measure a workout by time here.

So how do we distinguish between an exercise that we do high rep, low rep and hold?

Any opinions on how to create workouts based on reps not time? Perhaps I'm looking at it the wrong way?

Open to comments and advice.

If u r on gaining phase u should go for less reps more weight and moderate no. of sets...if u r on cutting phase low to moderate weights high reps and higher sets..

This is more a question on functionality of this software /site vs how to achieve certain results.

This it what I do... where the title of the exercise is I specify number of reps for example " incline dumbell press 10-12 reps 2second pause at the bottom " then I estimate the time it would take me to complete the reps ... and If my estimation is wrong I pause it and do my set... since I create the workout for my own training it works for me.

I agree, that's where I was heading in my thinking. I construct my own workouts too and will build the timing around the high rep more time and less reps less time. 

Thanks for the validation. Wasn't sure if I was missing a feature of the app. 

Thanks.
