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.
Does exactly what any beginner/intermediate lifter needs. The inclusion of frame by frame summary videos for giving yourself a quick form refresher between sets is genius, and the book alone makes the full price app worth it. Only issue I have had: often submitting a workout is unsuccessful, but pressing the tick multiple times leads to the workout appearing multiple times in history when the app unfreezes.
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
Great for training, if a little buggy Often crashes on startup and needs a force close. If you're part way through a warm up, checking a video etc resets the warm up, and it would also be nice to see the warm up weights in advance so I can get the plates ready. However, I'm getting a lot stronger so I can forgive all this for more
* fixed power clean warmup final set being same as workset weight
* fixed issue on some deadlift warmup sets showing 3 instead of 5.

Handy app to calculate weights for a 6-week Texas Method strength cycle.
