What do people think of Strong Workout Tracker Gym Log?
Being able to quickly record each set on the watch is way nicer than having to open up my phone in between sets or write things down in a notebook. It has made tracking my workouts so much better.
My only feature request would be the ability to automatically set weight increases for each workout or set more complex workouts and weight increases/decreases like in 5/3/1.
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!!
I've been using Strong for a few months and this is a really nice update. I hope they'll spend some time now focusing on some missing functionality like being able to send a routine to a friend (Maybe make an iMessage app?) and editing of supersets, which continues to be one of the most frustrating things about the app as I add in more routines.
One of the things I like is that they offer an option (admittedly quite costly) to buy premium once versus having a recurring subscription. The more you use the app, the more valuable it is both in terms of integration with your life and in terms of the data history it has, so buying upfront makes a lot of sense.
I've tried a bunch of workout apps and been unhappy with them all. I settled with one I didn't really like and used it for a year. However, during that time I wished for a workout app that was just simple. One that allows you to create your own workouts, enter them in, and had extra tools that don't get in the way. That is what Strong is. I recommend this app to any of my friends who enjoy weight training and don't yet have it.
