Ultimate 5/3/1 takes the math out of the 5/3/1 program so you can focus on getting stronger. Everything is planned out for you. Know exactly what you need to do as soon as you step into the gym. Ultimate 5/3/1 automatically calculates all your sets so you can focus on hitting new Personal Records.

Planning and tracking a 5/3/1 program is time consuming and hard. You have to calculate your training max and then calculate every single set based on your training max. It doesn't have to be like that. You could just walk into the gym everyday knowing exactly what you need to lift. Ultimate 531 takes the math out of the 5/3/1 program so you can focus on getting stronger and hitting new PRs.

Every cycle you have to redo the entire planning process, but not anymore! With one button press you can create a new cycle with all the weights automatically calculated for you.

If you haven't hit your ultimate strength goals yet then maybe it's because you have to spend so much time at the gym calculating weights for each set. Stop wasting your precious energy. Just plug in your numbers to Ultimate 5/3/1 and go.

For the serious lifter there are some excellent features when you subscribe to the Pro version. Unlock over 35+ 5/3/1 templates along with the ability to edit an existing template. If you really know what you are doing you can build your own template from scratch.

The 5/3/1 program is amazing for strength gains but energy and time is wasted trying to figure out what plates you need for each set. In the upgraded Pro version you get a Plate Calculator so you focus on the things that matter.

Getting stronger is about putting in the work every week but it's hard to see the progress you are making. The Pro version includes graphs of your one-rep maxes over time. Feel confident knowing you are doing the right things and making progress.

If you are the type of person that likes to track everything the Pro version also includes the ability to add and track Joker sets and assistance exercises.

Free Features:
- Plan an entire 5/3/1 cycle with one button press
- Alerts when you hit a new Personal Record (PR)
- Automatically increases your one-rep maxes when you hit a new PR
- Warm-up sets
- Save an unlimited number of templates

Very good 5/3/1 app

I think this is a really good 5/3/1 App and I think I’ve tried just about every one as well as just keeping my own spreadsheet. It looks good, it’s easy to use, and has a lot of templates already pre-loaded which is great. The only thing holding it back is the lack of being able to set a training max for a cycle, only a 1RM. This makes it very difficult to progress from 1 cycle to another. I think if this was implemented this would definitely be a 5 star app and I look forward to it in the future!

Appreciate the kind words and you are absolutely right about the training max. I plan to make some changes to make it easier to adjust training maxes from cycle to cycle. If you have any suggestions on how you'd like the feature to work shoot me an email at ultimate531app@gmail.com. Thanks!

Can’t remove templates from the workout screen

You can delete templates from your “my templates” page but not the workout section.

Developer Response ,

If you press and hold on a template in the workout screen you can delete it. Thanks for the feedback!

Excellent app for 5/3/1

This is an excellent App for 5/3/1. It’s truly customizable. I’m going to use it exclusively for my workouts now. Only suggestion would be adding a way to see how many reps on that last set it takes to break a pr. Great work! Thank you for creating it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you! I’ll add the rep PR feature soon!
