Love the app.. my one recco would be to show clearer form rather than the YouTube videos. Maybe short succint animations. That would help do a quick refresh before changing form. The videos are too long and I have to keep dragging the marker to find the right part wasting time. Side profile animations would be better. Thanks for the response with the link to the guides. However, what I think will be invaluable is a quick easy reference animation that shows correct form, between sets. This reinforces whats correct, especially for newbies.
This is a great app which lays out a straight-forward exercise program that can be quickly implemented daily and it log your progress. It is exactly what I have been looking for a long time. I have seen some complaints that it is not challenging enough. It's not difficult to fix this. Simply increase the weight, reduce your rest time between sets, or add additional exercises from the available options. Great app. Love it.
Just fantastic Not only is the workout plan great, but this might be the most streamlined, intuitive, and user friendly app of any kind that I've ever used. I paid for the premium but I think it's still free for basic. It keeps you on track with your sets, workouts, lift weight, body weight, successes, failures, and gives you a notes section for each work out so you can look back months from now and see what you were thinking that day. If you are just starting with weight lifting, this is the best place to start.
I found strong lifts back in 2012 when you could only get the app for Apple products. I used the program back then to break through some long standing plateaus. I'm back with out now because I had quit working out and this program actually takes into account that people are at different levels of fitness. The app has improved greatly over 4 years ago. Then you basically had a timer and workout log. Now it can help complete beginners figure out what plates to put on the bar, and what weights they should warm up with or if it's even required. Great app for compete beginners and helpful for the experienced to have an easy tracking method for this program.
This is THE app for 5x5. If you're not sure what 5x5 is, read up. The app does not provide context or background about the workout routine (which is available elsewhere). But if you're doing the 5x5 routine then this app tracks all the basic exercises. It lets you track progress and changes the weights you'll do next. It increases and decreases the weights according to the programme. But it also lets you modify weights and recalculates your next workout weights. There is also a neat little timer for rests in between sets!
I have not lifted in years I still have a Max of 225 bench and a 245 squat. I thought I would try this out just so I can recommend this for friends. On the first week I am extremely happy with this app. After looking at the videos they provide it made me realize I was not lifting properly( which may explain my pain After lifting in the past. I decided to start from the bottom and work my way up . Following the proper lifting tips provides a great work out.
