Here's how I think something like this should work:
A "substitution list" would let you add alternatives to the exercise that you approved. So you could add bench press and dumbbell bench press, and the client could substitute bench press for dumbbell bench press, but nothing else. Basically, this is a group of exercises, but it shows one at a time to the client.
We can use this either for substitutions or progressions/regressions depending on what exercises we add and what we tell the client to do.
On the trainer side, in the workout builder, the easiest way to do this would be to add all the exercises you want in the workout, select them all, then instead of selecting superset, they would select a new option call "substitution list" or "substitution group". It then groups them like a superset, but is labelled as a substitution group. This way the trainer can see all exercises, and most importantly can view tracked results and set up progressions without messing things up. As far as progression spreadsheet and progress graphs are concerned, they are showed in the same way a superset would be, though ideally with some sort of visual cue.
On the client side, it simply hides all exercises in the list except for the first exercise. They would be able to substitute different exercises by clicking a button. It should be visibly different than a standard exercise. Once subbed, the new exercise is active and will be visible in subsequent workouts, while the rest are hidden (but can be switched to with the sub list).
