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.
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!
Really awesome simple work out app The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the limited customization options. I'd love to be able to swap out lifts in work outs. For example today I wasn't able to get a barbell to bench press with so I did dumbbell bench instead. I wish I could show that in app to keep my numbers consistent for the lifts I am able to do
I never rate apps or reviews because I simply can't be bothered. However using this app and following the guides have seen me gone from struggling to bench 80kg for 3 to lifting 5x5 92kg and my OHP personal best has increased massively. I've seen some serious overall strength gains in the short time I've been using it and it was worth the £9.99 to add and track a few extra exercises and unlock the other features. Amazing app, highly recommended. Tldr: Seen some great overall strength gains by following the workout in this app.
