Add Olympic quality training to your squat routine and strengthen your legs and core!
New from BFS, the True Squat app measures the depth of your squat to ensure you are getting the optimal results from your training!
With the device strapped to your thigh, the app uses your device’s accelerometers to sound a beep and vibrate to let you know when your thigh reaches TRUE parallel on each rep. If you’re not getting to parallel you’re not getting the full benefit from your squat routine.
It also counts and displays your reps to lets you know when you've finished your set with a clear audible signal.
Settings allow beep/vibrate at 0º (true parallel), or 15 and 20 degrees above parallel, useful for a box squat or an easier/training workout. The Settings page also allows you to choose the number of reps in your set.
BFS True Squat includes teaching aids under the home screen menu button. These aids include a comprehensive technique video covering parallel squats and proper spotting protocols for maximum performance and safety. With the True Squat, the spotters can focus on their jobs of spotting and offering encouragement without having to assess the depth of each repetition.
And check out our True Squat Strap ( “True Squat Strap” links to http://estore.biggerfasterstronger.com/collections/true-squat/products/true-squat-strap ) to keep your phone in the perfect position on your thigh while you squat.
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
Ratings and Reviews
I think this is a great app that’s wonderful for competitive lifters who don’t have others around to call their squat depth. When it errs — and it does on occasion, I think — it has you squat deeper than letting you go too shallow. I give it only four stars because it has little in-app instruction to help you know where to place the phone on your thigh. They want you to buy their $30 strap, but you can easily DIY a strap yourself. Anyway, it’s great fun and helpful for gauging squat depth. Cheers to Bigger Faster Stronger for the ingeniousness of it.
Nice work BFS team
Nice app to get the most out your workouts. Included squat technique video instruction is a nice addition!
Not very good
Your phone has to be unlocked with the app open for it to work. The phone buzzes when you reach 90 degrees but the beep sound is delayed. There is no way to increase the sound of of the app so the beep is useless if you’re also listening to music on your headphones. I’d save your money and just use a buddy or your phone to record your depth.
