    Pros: 

    The only workout logger that works in practice. Awesome for getting a birds-eye's view of my overall progress as well as for drilling down.

    Cons: 

    No kettlebell or indoor rowing categories. No EMOM, Tabata and AMRAP time-based workouts either. Not critical for strength only, but still.

    After giving Strength 5 a run its money, I'm glad to say that the wait is finally over. This is a powerful workout logger that solves the issues when actually trying to input workout data. The small details, like knowing exactly about your PRs and past performance down to the set. Also knowing the total volume lifted (vanity metric!), and getting at a glance info on how I'm progressing with each exercise. It just makes me wish that people paid attention more to these kinds of apps, since walking, running and swimming are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes down to wellbeing. Being strong and muscular correlates far better with health and most quantified-self platforms are neglecting it.

    If you are a serious in Olympic Weightlifting, be careful that exercises need input by hand (most accessories besides the classic ones are missing). Also a bit lackluster if you are into Crossfit. It would be nice to be able to input a whole WOD after the fact. It's almost perfect for Powerlifters, though.

    Pros: 

    Extremely flexible, direct and purposeful, straightforward UX that focus on the the real purpose of your use - your workout

    Cons: 

    Fairly bland UI for the last few years - changed with this update!

    This app is incredible. I started using it a year ago to it with helping me settle into a rhythm that led to me losing 3in 5 months. so straightforward and user friendly, but exceptionally powerful. I was able to set it up to do exactly what I wanted for every workout with one minor exception.

    The end result was a user experience that few apps reach - truly easier, more powerful, and better than the analog alternative. Even if Strong didn’t track your progress over time it would be worth it just to use to lead yourself through your daily routines.

    My favorite feature has to be the automatic progression. You just hit next as you move through your routine and you literally just have to use two buttons to finish your workout - the next button and the +/- to adjust reps and weight. So smooth.

    I’ve recommended Strong time and time again. Everyone who has started using it has fallen in love with it too.

    Customer support is also sponsive and helpful. One of my #1 favorite apps and teams.

    Keep up up the good work!!

Super happy to announce the new version of Strong. We believe it's the simplest tracking experience available and strive to keep it that way. This is really just the beginning - we're looking forward to helping our users improve and track their workouts over time! We'll be adding more exercises to the core database very soon, and there's a lot of added features that didn't quite make it into 5.0 launch, but look forward to sharing them over the coming weeks and months!

Been a long time user of Strong — and the latest version is a solid improvement, especially with movement animations... definitely something I was looking for! This app is definitely for data-heads... who want a lot of granularity over tracking sets. The learning curve is a little steep, but it's an essential tool for measuring your progress towards your strength goals!

@chrismessina Thanks so much for the support Chris! We're working really hard to smooth out the onboarding and make Strong more accessible to everyone - this update is a step in that direction!

Having logged over 500 workouts, I can attest that this app is useful for tracking progress and achieving ones goals. I can’t wait to dig into the redesigned version!

Been a user of this app for a while now.. by far the best on the market. I don’t usually comment on these things.. so hopefully that says something.

This looks awesome, I can't wait to update it. I've been using strong since it first launched. They made mistakes by attempting to abandon the users who helped them in the beginning by forcing a subscription model but fixed it with a permanent licence. Personally recommended this to all my active friends especially just for its chart features to see progress over time.
