Simple, solid, useful.

The criticism I have to offer is that the app doesn't have a feature which generates which weight plates to use. I've used apps in the past that automatically displayed which weights you needed on the bar for each set like a 45, a 10, a 5, a 2.5 and a 1.25. Barbell math is easy enough but it's nice to just slap on what it tells you to during warmup sets. The only other thing I have is that the rest timer does not continue counting down if you leave the app, so if you check a Facebook notification during a 3 minute rest or leave the app to check that text you got during your last set, your rest timer is jacked. Fix those two things and the app would be nearly perfect.

10/10 would download again. lol.

Incredibly functional app for 5/3/1

First time making a review because this app deserves 5 stars. I even bought the in app purchases just for extra convenience and to help the developer. I was using spreadsheets and print outs for a year for 5/3/1 and this app eliminated that. The ability to track all of your lifts over time with the calendar is by far the best feature. It’s great to easily look back at all of my lifts and notes for each day and to track my estimated 1RM in the graphs. Only thing I wish this app had was a way to keep track of what cycle you’re on and what 1RM you’ve used in past cycles so you don’t accidentally set the wrong one. Besides that this app is basically perfect.

Programming made easy

I really love how simple and convenient this app makes everything!
All I need is a full charge, head phones, preworkout, and I can have one of the best workouts every time I step in the gym using this app!
The app is free but I recommend just spending the extra money on a graph and the log/graph for accessory lifts as well!
It is so cheap in comparison to a powerlifting coach and makes accountability that much easier as well as much more digestible feedback than what you feel like from session to session.
Very satisfied with the in app purchase and definitely the best app on the market for powerlifting!
