Reviews From google play store

This is hands down the best weight lifting app I have ever used and one month I have seen games not just and waiting crease but in physical appearance the program works with you there's nothing like it. I have gained 10 pounds of muscle and one month I have people telling me they can see the difference and I feel amazing it increases gradually with you this is just the best app ever if you're serious about working out then this is the app for you. It will add exercises it's great for beginners 2

I'm liking it so far, this is making things easier for me as I just go to the gym and not have to think about how much weight I need to lift as it has it all for me

Wish it worked on Chromebooks that run Android apps. The app installs, but can't start a training session.

Easy to use once you get it set up, and a great training plan!

Simple but very effective to gain strength and confidence to gain even more strength.

GREAT!! Easy to use and able to adjust workset weight if needed.

Best exercise app I've seen. Everything is laid out for you

What can I say, it works. The app is good and the routine is amazing.

Excellent app, makes warmup weight jumps cake.

Superb! The best strength training program. Period.

Easy to use, I like the history graphs.

Best strength program there is. Can rows be added to the app?

Easy and effective.

Best and easiest ss app

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.

Great app for going through linear progression on the starting strength program. I began starting strength 2 months before I installed the app, I was able to fill in all my previous workouts. The charts are a nice touch to be able to see your progress. I also appreciate that the app calculates my warmups for me. This app is definitely worth the price.

if you are doing the Starting Strength Linear Progression you are in better hands than a notebook. The plate calculator is especially helpful (for me at least). Timer is an outstanding function. I don't have any major complaints about this one for you guys. If you're just looking for a workout app it will probably confuse you until you figure out the program it is desogned to fit.

Great app! Easy to track workouts, and the plate calculator is great for early mornings when I don't want to math. Only wish is that the chin-up page had a way to subtract weight every week (for an assisted machine).

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.

Excellent, handy for work sets, timer, video and quick tips. Great progression chart keeps motivation high. Links to forum and ongoing help. Only thing is weights sometimes don't add up right on bar display of work weight....small thing tho

Has really helped me get back into strength training. Only has a few hiccups. when it shifts to landscape mode to display charts it doesn't switch back to portrait.

I guess the devs realized that 60% of their user base will quit before a month is over. This is why it only supports the first two phases of a 4 phase program. Kind of a rip off, if you are only providing full support for half of what the book does. I'm not sure if that is a marketing play to sell their online coaching services, or a dev issue. If you do the program, the app will help you make gains, but not full linear progression! This is only built to properly support 5-6 weeks of work.

For the most part, a great app for beginners of SS. Would like to be able to modify/add outside the big 3 (or 4) to include secondary barbell exercises.

App works well for Starting Strength NLP. My only gripe is tjat in recent version there is a noticeable lag between the first touch and when the app responds after you bring it to the foreground; after that its fine. Wish list item: allow entry of different weights for one or more sets if you need to back off.

easy to follow. start out low weight and work up. listen to rips podcast. this app has a lot of bells and whistles. explore it and read the included literature.

The best strength training system available for beginners bar none. I weighed 160lbs at 6'2" when I started I now weigh in at 190lbs about a year after finding this program. my squat went from 185lbs to 320lbs for 5 reps. I'm also addicted to the youtube page. thanks for everything Rip. best 45 bucks ive ever spent was on this app and the starting strenght book. I'm 35 and the strongest I've ever been.

Awesome app! Takes out guesswork and calculations, allowing you to focus on training. Very customizable as well.

Simple and straightforward app to track my training and increases in strength. Great to see my progress over time.

This negative review is for technical reasons. I am a big Rippetoe fan and fan of SS. This app often fails to load on my S9+. No other app fails in such a way. StrongLifts is a good if not better app for tracking and saving data but this app when it loads has useful lift info.

Easy to use program and app. Have been training for 4 weeks with this app and really like it. Recommend watching Barbell Logic videos to help learn the moves. Also the Barbell Logic podcasts are helpful. If you dont have a coach it's handy to have someone experienced to talk to about your progress. Otherwise use the forums.

this is the easiest way to get started on the starting strength system for only 9 bucks, I highly recommend it just go in and do the exercises and stick is closely to the schedule as you can and you'll get massive results quickly if you're a beginner.

Overall does what it's supposed to. There are occasional glitches seen with the timers.

Great app. Do yourself a favor and buy the book. App works as it should and its amazing to have easy to read data on where your strength used to be, where it is now and where it might be within a certain period of time.

Needs to do KGs better. Sometimes the weight will be set to ~.5, and thats just not possible. My gym doesn't have bar weights less than 2.5 KG and i think that's pretty standard. Other than that, it's a great way to train.

would be much better if you could manipulate the training variables and exercise selections so it can grow with you past your novice stage. I spent the $ for the app and haven't had it very long and already feel it is inadequate.

good for tracking SS workouts. wish you could change weights in sets, without modifying entire work out. Much better than carrying around the blue book and a journal in the gym.

only reason it isn't getting 5 is because if you need to completely start over (for whatever reason) you always need to make a new account. it should just have a reset feature

Buttons a bit small and it would be great if you could show me my last workout when I set the weight. Oh ,and also make setting the weight manually as a standard and more easy .

Great app to have for running a LP and is still good to have even if you're not. It will show you what plates you need for each weight and having quick access to the demo videos and excerpts from the book is extremely helpful. My only problem with it is that you can't reprogram the exercises, reps, and sets more for post-LP programming.

Great app and training source! i would suggest adding Fitbit support for heart rate. Also, its clunky to change weight/set in the middle of a work out. Great app though!

While I believe that Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is a good program, this app is not a good representation of said program. It is not intutive and simple enough to use. If I just finished my last set of squats, and I click the "next rep" button, why doesn't it take me to the next exercise? Why am I forced to click on the menu on top? Why do I have to tap the phone, to silence the countdown timer, once it hits 0? Why not just make it beep 3 or 5 times? Why do I always have to login again every time I turn on the app to backup my data? Why are there like 4 or 5 buttons on the workout screen, all of them with different options? The only thing on my workout screen should be my exercises (sets and reps), weights and a timer. All the extra options and settings, just keep them in a separate menu. Why does the app respond terribly to landscape mode? Why is there even a landscape mode, when it's not even needed in the first place? Stronglifts is a complete ripoff of Starting Strength, but their app is simple and intuitive to use. That's a big reason why its such a successful app and you can't keep up with your competition with apps like these. Keep it simple.

great app. I've been making steady gains, and it's very easy to keep track of my progress.

i love the programing. I do not have calculate anything and just focus on form. I can not think of a better way to work the Starting Strength program!

Great app that is easily used from beginner to intermediate lifters.

Only complaint is when you go to progress and some of the other views that force a horizontal screen rotation don't return to a vertical rotation when you go back home or to settings where the screen should be vertical. The only way I've found to fix it is to close out the app and re-open it.

I love this app! Easy to use and my workouts have improved. Making progress every trip to the gym.

It's a good functional app. Though, for the price, the loading screen should look nicer.

Brilliant app that does everything i hoped it would and some things i didnt realize i wanted! Perfect for noobs that are interested in Starting Strength.

It's slightly buggy but I love that it has all the exercises described and short animations for reference. Very straightforward. Just a few bugs with the timers and switching plate denominations or from kg to lbs and back. I travel overseas a lot so need to switch back and forth...

I wish there was a way to adjust the amount of working sets or add and record variation in the lifts. I love that it tells how to make the weights on each side for the given amount. I also like the timer, and warm up suggested for the given weight.

Great app and workout program. Really nice that it tracks everything for you and shows what waits you need.

Does an exceptional job of calculating warmup sets and weights. I don't have to spend valuable gym time nerding out over spreadsheets, just turn up and tap Today's Training and it's all laid out. I'm using the female 5x3 program which is perfect for me. Great for people who train half-asleep first thing in the morning or mentally spent after work. The strength over aesthetics philosophy carries into the design of the app but it's such a great app I can't bring myself to use any other!

App is not perfect, doesn't save warmup sets, it's a bit clunky, especially when switching to other apps and then switching back during a workout, but does the job. If your plan is doing a good linear progression, this is the right program.

like this app, love starting strength. I do wish the app allowed a bit more flexibility to make changes as my programming changes ie: 4x4 for presses or 2x3 for deadlifts. But, other than that, I cant recommend starting strength and starting strength online coaching any higher.

A great app for beginning. Gets you strong quick! Work on form over getting the reps. This program will train your central nervous system more and more every time so when the weights do get heavy you will avoid injury. Worth the measly $9.

Wish I had started using it ten years ago (I know, I know. Apps weren't a thing then.) please do yourself a favor and pick this app and the book up and spend the time. You'll save literally hundreds of hours of wasted time exercising and not improving.

great apps for starting strength workout. Easy-to-follow gives you the bar loading weights. keeps track of all of your progress very well. just needs a couple more tweaks but the developer is working on it constantly

I have loved using this as a beginning lifter and at times when I have had to deload. I do wish it was a little more customizable toward the end of a linear progression and after.

Been using this now for six months or so. Used to use stronglifts but I think starting strength is a more realistic routine for me and I’ve seen more growth from this app, and more commitment from myself. No glitches for me either.

The more I use it the more I like it. While there have some issues with the application logging in and updating the workout it may have more tondo with the gym's WiFi than the app.

Takes the guess work out of training. Has several ways to view progress. Has useful info split by lifts. While I recommend the physical book the app is a great companion and worth every dollar.

Great app to build strength. keep track of your workouts and notes

You're basically getting the book and the app for the price. I would love to see this translate to desktop and to have the ability to edit so I can use it post LP.

10/10 always a great workout and really good about easing into higher weight brackets.

The app is great for basic SS NLP. I just wish additional sets and reps could be added. Accessory movements would be a big plus too. Overall great as is, though.

Simple, easy to use app. Would like a little more customization, i.e. More control over just work weight without changing the whole work set, changing work reps to greater than 5.

This app had helped facilitate my starting strength program! I am not great at keeping track...and the app does it all for me! I love it.

So far so good. The only thing I would change so far is if the rest time would start automatically after you pressed the next set button

Great app. Makes it really straightforward to follow the plan and keep good records. Developer is responsive and helped to resolve a small problem.

Very effective and easy to use app. Definitely worth the price!

great app for the beginner, takes some tweaking to get the hang of it and the settings but this program doubled almost all my previous pr in a little over a month

Best ap for Strength Training. No nonsense, no excess noise so to speak just tracks lifts according to the program which is exactly what I want.

if you're doing Ripptoe's 3x5 (novice) program this app is the best out there. It is fairly opinionated in terms of program flexibility so if you're not doing the program then it may not be for you. Also, read the book too.

Awesome app! Couple small bugs, like sometimes when opening the app the buttons aren't working and u have to restart the app.

Great app. It could use an intermediate program and it would be nice if the backup log saved the warmup sets.

Would be great if you could add front squat, glute ham raise and back extensions with different weights, differentiate between chin and pull ups and add weight to those. Right now I have to manually make notes and deload/reload every workload.

Amazing app. Gives you the full book, videos and access to the full program. Recommend to all my friends serious about getting into lifting

Love this app except for there is no ability that I know of to make notes for the next workout outside of going back into your history. This is easily remedied tho on your own

Great app for tracking progression and calcualting working weights, with video tutorials and a link to the forums to boot.

Works quite well. Would be nice to have the option to sub rows for cleans.

love this app; it is so well designed, easy to use and exactly what I was looking for. very helpful in many ways.

Was working well. On 8.1 it throws me out of my current session when I hit the arrow to go to the next set

Easy to use, keeps track of your weights and all the info you need to learn to lift.

Works very well to help stay on track with the linear progression. Thanks!

Super helpful and easy to understand app, love the linear progression and have seen great results!

Great help keeping up with warm up set and work sets as you progress. Been using app for 6 months now and love it.

Great program. Developer very responsive. 10/10 would buy again.

excellent,easy to use, straight forward- just like Mark's programming.

The mastermind behind the content of this app has 4 decades of weight training for health. The philosophy of this training plan in combination with the structure of this app makes my training life a breeze.

love the app, there are a few minor bugs, like input fields and timer

It has made training much easier and the time feature makes getting a correct rest period easier in the gym I train in.

Best beginner program ever made for strength acquisitions. Very detailed explanation and useful tool.

kinda basic app, but really, what bells and whistles do you need? Do the work.

Excellent standard SS guide and tracker. Please add options for alternate lifts and set/rep schemes.

This is app is worth the money. A must have for a beginner with a home gym.

getting strong and growing a fat face, whats not to love? App is good for keeping me on track during workouts and is cool to see the progress made on lifts through time.

I feel like it could explain how to fidget with the bar weight and warm up weights a little better but all round an awesome app.

Workout less, eat more, feel better, be stronger. Death to everyday cardio. It's not easy when you lift heavier, but hugely rewarding.

Great tool. It's like having a personal trainer on your phone.

makes training straight forward, so you can focus on form and work to be done
