Here's some reviews from our users

"What do you get when you combine the best method to get stronger with detailed instructional videos, thorough explanations AND an actual day to day program? THIS APP! Finally! Perfect for both beginners and experienced lifters and worth much more than the price I paid for. Thank you Starting Strength!

"I've tried 2-3 other apps. I've kept paper logs. Nothing has been easier to use than this app. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't enter my warm up sets...its because you don't need to! You enter your work set weight and it tells you exactly what to load on the warmup-ups..."

"Wonderful, straight-forward way to keep DOING THE PROGRAM. A simple and clear way to apply the SS principles and track your work.”

"Like others, I was on the fence about buying this app to help kickstart my starting strength program. This app deserves it's high average rating, and you should pull the trigger if you are reading this.”

"I tried a few free apps before buying this app, this one is well worth the money. Best app out there for barbell training"

Brilliant and great value!!

I’m a novice - intermediate trying to get stronger using barbell training and it’s working!!
This app guides you through the Starting Strength linear progression programme ... and does it perfectly.
The app is like having a coach guide you through each workout ... tells you what plates to put on the bar / times rest periods etc.
Not having to plan each workout makes it 100 times easier / more motivating to do each session.

Have been using this app for 2 years now. The Starting Strength programme is the best way to get stronger and more functional, and maintain that state. Get the book and read it. Then get this app and start lifting. It is your personal trainer, tracking your progress and setting your weights for each workout. All you need is a bar, a squat rack, a bench, and some weights. Get going. You’ll change your life.

Easy to use

Started weight training with this app and the book and have been happy with it so far. Before I start each session I just open the app and it even tells me how much weight per side for each set from warmups to work set. Set up was easy and it’s been awesome watching the weight go up and seeing my progress on the graphs.
