Results from StrongLifters...
• Used for 3 months! Excellent results 285lb squat!
• I've gained 8 pounds of muscle in 3 months.
• After 12 weeks I'm now aiming for the 300lb squat and getting my bench above 220lb.
• In 3 weeks my squat has gone up by 45lb. It's an exercise I've struggled with in the past, but now it's one of my favourites.
• Being middle aged, overweight and never lifted weight this was what I needed. I am gaining muscle and strength, losing inches on the waist and squatted 220lb for the first time. I am more than happy.

Ratings and Reviews
Best app in the store. Just wish you could edit workouts more freely.
Let me start by saying if you are unsure on whether or not to get this app, get it. It is so easy to use, rigorous and gives a near complete training program for both beginners and intermediates.
The program is designed to stick to compound lifts are target major muscle groups. The subscription is fully worth purchasing, and gives a simple guide to how to warm up and the ability to add on additional isolation exercises at the end.
Additionally if you do not have time for 5x5 or it becomes too taxing, you have the option to switch to 3x5.
My only complaint is that you cannot edit the core exercises for each workout. Now there is a good reason for this, as it ensures that you stick to the system (which I recommend) for the best results. However, individuals who suffer from conditions prohibiting them from certain lifts (such as supraspinatus tendinitis, which produces pain with barbell press), are unable to replace these exercises with a suitable alternative (such as standing/seated dumbbell press in the above case). Whilst the muscles targeted may not be identical, I personally believe that this app should give the freedom to allow edits. That’s just a thought, and I do hope one day such an option will be offered to subscribed users.
Not for me, but people seem to like it!
I downloaded this app based on the overwhelming positive feedback on here, I wanted to try something different to encourage my muscles to grow...I’m one of those pesky hard gainers, so after not seeing as much improvement as I’d like I went searching for a new plan.
I’ve been doing this 3 days a week for several weeks now. I’m squatting way more weight than before, but because of the low rep ranges it never feels like a challenge. I never feel like I’ve had a serious workout and I’ve actually been losing muscle since I started doing this.
Having said that, the app is very easy to use, the graphs are great for tracking your progress. Just obviously wasn’t for me, I still class myself as a beginner, but this is really basic with no muscle gains in sight, so maybe better for your first plan, not one to switch to if you’ve already been doing something else as you’ll find yourself going backwards.
Developer Response ,
It sounds like the weight was too easy for you. This may happen if you've trained before. The simple solution is to increase the weight by tapping it on the log workout screen. This will instantly make the workouts more challenging.
Helped me a huge amount with lifting
I have had a few periods on and off with lifting, trying to get into it and make progress, but I always suffered from a lack of direction, idea of what weights to lift, and generally had a lack of progress.
However, after only using this app for 8 weeks, I have made huge progress and increased all my lifts by 50%. In 8 weeks I have gone from having not used the gym for months, to probably being in the best shape of my life, and being motivated to go to the gym 3-4 times a week because I see good progress each time.
The app is fantastic, easy to use and you can use their website to find detailed description of form etc. Would 100% recommend this app.
