Nice idea but it needs work....
I was disappointed in this app. The workout program is set up for people who are just starting out and can do a very limited amount of pull-ups if any at all. I wish it set up a workout schedule based on how many initial pull-ups you can do. The number of initial pull-ups you can do is completely irrelevant to the workout schedule it sets up for you. Just to test it out I entered a fake number saying that I could already do 30 pull-ups. It still started me out doing four sets of one pull-up each!? There are many other apps that do a better job at recording your workout statistics and you can record many other exercises besides just pull-ups. Until it can give you a customized workout based on your initial starting point I would pass on this app.
Okay, waste of a dollar
It's an ok app, but I wish there were some way I could go back and restart the whole training program because I stopped after the first week and couldn't restart. Also they should customize a workout based on a test you do at the beginning
I feel like I wasted a dollar. My max is 25 yet it makes me start with1,2,1,2 (!!??). Secondly it only says to do 4 sets but doesn't tell you how much of a break to take between sets. Why would I pay a dollar for this if the free programs are better???
