needs reminders functionality great app, but very basic. if you remember to do the pushups you're all set with this app. it will lead you through the exercise. however, i doesn't have ability to raise a reminder or alarm to remind to do the exercises. this is quite critical. hence only 3 stars from me. this would add a lot more complexity, but the app should also track days between exercises. the app should augment the number of pushups to do based on days since last exercise (for example, if i skipped exercising for a month, not only am i not ready to move onto next level, i probably need to go a few levels back)
Needs heads-up for exhaustion tests The program is good and very helpful. Unfortunately, it never gives a notification BEFORE an exhaustion test needs to be performed. The only warning it gives you is as you're about to start a new week. The online guides suggest this test happen 24-48 hours after your 3rd exercise of the week. The program should remind you after you've completed the 3rd exercise, not immediately before you start a new week.
Great app I noticed many of the negative reviews were from people who didn't get that the app worked along side with the online program. If you are in the wrong column you have to reset how many pushups you did in the initial test on the app. This should change the column you are in. if you stick to the program and redo your exhaustion test (to adjust the column you are in) every two Weeks you should be fine. the app works perfect. would be nice if it reminded you what day to do workouts and the tests every 2 Weeks
Great app It is exactly like the program. I read 2 other reviews and obviously they arnt understanding how it works. U have to do ur initial test and it sets you to the program according to how many you can do. Go on the website and actually read it. The negative reviews are inaccurate unless it doesnt open or whatever. Program works amazingly
Good to get you started... ...lousy for actually getting to 1000 pushups. It's expectations are MUCH to unrealistic jumping up by 25 pushups two days after you barely completed the previous amount. It lets you enter if you came up short on your sets but does not take this information into account when planning your next session. There are better apps out there.
Needs to be more responsive to results Generally speaking, this is a good app. It us stable and motivates me to train frequently. However, I have two issues with it: 1) if I'm struggling to achieve the totals set, it doesn't try to take me back a week or adjust the targets in the next session. Instead, it continues to raise the target for the next session above a goal that I've already failed to achieve 3 days in a row. 2) you can't change the total that you reached in a set until you complete the whole workout, instead of after each set.
