When you're lifting, you don't always want to spend brainpower doing arithmetic. Barbell Builder makes it easy to figure out what plates to put on the bar to make your target weights.

Barbell Builder calculates weight progressions, so you get from your first warm-up to your working weight in even steps. It shows you clear visual representations of the weights on each bar, so you can quickly double-check your loading. It even takes into account whether the lift you're doing requires full size or bumper plates.

Barbell Builder not only figures out the easiest way to get to your target weight, but also suggests options for loading the bar with fewer plates but a little more weight. And, of course, it lets you choose specific plates, in case someone else at the gym is using the plates you want.

With the "Plate Editing" In-App purchase, you can customize your gym, setting numbers, weights, types, and appearances of plates and bars. Have an unusual plate size? No problem. The plate editor will let you specify exactly what you have. You can try out this functionality out for free and decide whether the purchase is right for you.

Best barbell loader of them all!

I have tried most of the barbell loaders out there and purchased most of them. This is the best one of them all! If your workouts are based off poundage profession then this apps enables you to use micro loads down to 1/1000 of a pound. That does require an in app purchase but for me it was well worth it! I emailed the developer with questions and he got back to me in just a couple hours. I hope he will keep updating this fine app.
