Great app This has been a great app from the start to track starting strength progress, but with the updates that have been coming it has been amazing. Ive noticed improved auto timers for rest times as well as improved settings and ability to have data stored with an account and recover it in case of loss. I recommend this app to anybody doing this program. 1 edit i would like is the ability to rename exercises and their 3x5 or 5x3 format. I cant train power clean anymore since a wrist injury so now do pendlay row
Works great! This got me under the bar in a method that has kept me on track and helped avoid injury. I'm a 47 YO novice and I'll be doing a bodyweight DL (205#) on my next session which will be the 12th since starting. I hurt my back almost 3 yrs ago DL'ing less weight but the SS Program has gotten me strong fast. Just Follow The Program and keep loading plates.
The app is pretty good for actually doing the workouts. I don't like how the timer resets when you go to different tabs. Also I don't find the excerpts from the book helpful and they certainly don't negate the need to have and read the book. The last thing I don't like are the videos. For one, there aren't enough frames to really analyze the movements. Secondly, the super-flexible college-kid lifters don't have enough weight on the bar, especially in the power clean clip. Dude's literally jumping 10 inches off the floor. Show me someone cleaning at least 175 lbs instead of a couple yellow bumper plates.
Great app Great app. I would make it so you can scale the squats (I.e., add 5 every other workout or one a week) when you start stalling but it ain't hard to work around it. Just gone start micro plates earlier
The app is great for tracking workouts. I only found out a couple weeks ago that it has warm-up sets built into the app. Hit the arrow next to your work weight to see bar loadouts and warm-up sets.
Great program, even for an older guy(47) who never relly did squats or deadlifts. Rip is extremely thorough in explaining the lifts. Started with stronglifts 5x5 app a few years ago which was ok, but after reading starting strength and finding this app, Rippetoe's instruction and rationale blows that program away.
* fixed power clean warmup final set being same as workset weight
* fixed issue on some deadlift warmup sets showing 3 instead of 5.
All programs in one app: Starting Strength, Strong Lifts, Wendler 531, GreySkull
Handy app to calculate weights for a 6-week Texas Method strength cycle.
