Advanced exercise search syntax
To help you more quickly find exercises on Physitrack, you can use the following search syntaxes:
A specific sequence of terms that must be matched next to one another.
A phrase query needs to be surrounded by double quotes (
For example, the query
"ankle pumps" only returns an exercise if it contains “ankle pumps” in the exercise title, description or aliases.
- The search is case-insensitive.
- Typo-tolerance is disabled.
If you make a typo, then you will likely not see any matches.
- Automatic pluralisation is disabled
So if you search on
"thread the needles"this will not match "thread the needle"
- You can combine a phrase (in double quotes) with regular search text, e.g.
"thread the needle" level
"ankle circles"will find all exercises that literarily contain "ankle circles" in their title, description or aliases.
Note: the text will no longer automatically match plural or singular versions, e.g. "ankle circle" will not match a search for "ankle circles"
"thread the needle"will find all exercises that literally contain this text in their title, description or aliases.
Exclude records that contain a specific term.
- To exclude a term, you need to prefix it with a minus (
- The search engine only interprets the minus (
-) as a prohibit operator when you place it at the start of a word.
- A minus (
-) within double quotes (
") is not treated as a prohibit operator.
squat -weightedonly matches exercises containing “squat(s)”, but not “weighted”.
squat-weightedmatches exercises containing “squat” and “weighted” (there’s no exclusion because the minus (
-) is in the middle of the word).
-weightedmatches every exercise except those containing “weighted”.
-weighted squatsmatches exercises containing “squat(s)”, but not “weighted”.
"-weighted"(note the double quotes) matches exercises containing “-weighted” (no exclusion performed).
