Want to focus more on lifting at the gym, not math?
Developed by a weightlifter, Barbell Loader is for:
and everyone else who lifts weights.
This app is perfect for saving time at Weightlifting and Powerlifting competitions!
-Load: Click on the plate buttons to load the bar yourself.
-Calculate: Type in a weight, and Barbell Loader will load the bar with either official IWF/IPF-colored kilogram plates or standard pound plates.
-Convert: Every weight is automatically converted between pounds and kilograms.
-Every weight has percentages calculated automatically that you can then load onto the bar.
SINCLAIR AND WILKS CALCULATOR
-Enter 2 out of 3 fields and the Calculator will resolve the third.
-For example, if you enter your Total Weight Lifted and Sinclair Score, the Calculator will tell you the Bodyweight needed.
REP MAX CALCULATOR
-Enter just the weight lifted and the repetitions and the Calculator will resolve everything from you 1 Rep Max to 10 Rep Max.
-Click a button, and Barbell Loader will log the current weight and time into a notepad that you can edit further.
-Customize your plate inventory.
-On/off switch for competition 2.5 kg collars.
-Set your bar weight.
-Create your own custom plates.
-Optimize the weight on the bar.
-Remove plates one at a time as necessary.
Patched a bug that was causing a sub-optimal plate selection when a heavy custom plate was being used in combination with a lack of standard inventory. Also fixed auto-layout issues and other slight improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
I contacted the developer via email about a few suggestions and feedback and his response was both quick and the feedback well received.
Developer Response ,
Hi, I just received your email and replied. Let me know if you still experience issues.
This app saves me so much time at the gym..I’ve been looking for something that’s quick & easy and this is it. I use a notebook for my log, but may try the log feature.
Need 15kg barbell standard setting
Love this app but it’s so annoying to have to reset the barbell to the standard women’s weight of 15kg every single time. This should be a default setting that remains as you load and unload the bar in the app.
Developer Response ,
Hello, it should definitely save the default bar weight- email me for support at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can figure out what’s going on. Thanks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
