If you're just getting into lifting, this is the best app out there. It boils down a pretty large fitness book that you might not actually read into like 6 pages of info you will (with accompanying form videos). And it deals with the progressive overload stuff for you. I think I'd like to see a bigger emphasis in the app on diet; a lot of novices are going to use this and not eat enough and get frustrated with lack of progress.

UPDATE: The new changes fixed the app for me. It's still a little sluggish but it doesn't crash. It makes calculating the weights for each warm up and set easy, definitely worth the money. This could be a great app but it constantly crashes and the UI is a bit unintuitive. More than anything I just wish I could count on it to run without freezing at the loading screen regularly.

A little expensive (especially when other apps are free), but it gets the job done. Especially helpful is the plate calculator. Combined with automatic weight progression, all you need to do is show up and lift. Includes some of the text from each chapter, along with a gif of the movements, so you can review your form between sets. Would be nice if they added the option to make Wednesday a light squat day.

Hey Michael, the others are apps are not exactly free, to get all the features like rest timer, warmup sets, graphs you have to pay. Its more like a free trial. Our app gives you everything with one payment, and if you're not happy with it just email and I'll give you a refund. Thanks for the review!
