Strongur also supports Apple’s Health app.
Realistic targets keep you on track. Statistical analysis has shown that a beginner can expect a strength gain of about 30% in the first 90 days. Additional gains in strength are gradual and due to an interplay between neuromuscular improvements and hypertrophy. A 5'9" (1.75m) man can expect to gain about 15 lb (7kg) of muscle in the first year. Expect 3-5 years to reach your natural maximum.
These are your targets. Feel free to smash through them.

Ratings and Reviews
Best fitness app out there despite bugs
Overall the app is fantastic. If you accurately set up your workouts it will automatically push you to progressive overload and it won’t let you just stay content with present levels. The graphs are great for monitoring progress, though it would be nice to have body measurement tracking included.
It also has the only fitness watch app I’ve experienced that isn’t a nightmare to operate or doesn’t constantly crash. Unfortunately the app on a 38mm Apple Watch series 2 has an issue with text size. Despite trying to change text size through the watch app, the text in the scrollers is too wide when you get up into the 200 lbs range and turns into things like “2...”
Honestly even with this annoyance, I still would rather use this app than any of the others out there. I just end up scrolling to a number that ends in 1, then count up or down to the weight I need. Irritating, but only relevant on the compound exercises, and way less irritating than constant crashing or a complicated watch interface that other apps have.

Body measurements are coming soon. I'll take another look at the text size issue on the smallest screen. Last time I checked it was ok for 100's. Will check again for 200+. Thanks.
Update gave it kinks it needs to work through
They added a much more in depth workout plan that is geared towards a six day a week workout plan. I liked the phase plans because it gave flexibility for people who only worked out 3-4 times a week. The new multi year phases took that option away. It's geared for a Monday Tuesday Wednesday etc plan. It doesn't say what to do if you miss a day of workouts. The new plan seems like it really focuses on a lot of different movements and includes cardio. Wide grip, close grip, side movements etc. Not sure if these plans will increase strength as it seems more to physical appearance. The plan also divides some exercises into left and right side but doesn't distinguish how many reps for which side. Finally there is no countdown clock for when you should start your next lift. The only timer is the one that says how long you've had the workout open, not how long it has been between your sets. Which is a huge annoyance for me
Developer Response ,
You can swipe to delete cardio days. Movement variations are meant to address common technique deficiencies. Do each side for the prescribed number of reps. And you can turn the timer on from the workout navigation bar button.
This took a little learning curve to get used to for a beginner, but once I understood all the features I would never use anything else! Has allowed me to track and progress very steadily for the last 14 months, going from beginner to intermediate lifting. The data on each of the lifts with charts tracking each muscle group makes it easy to zero in on weaknesses to target, and the progress numbers keep motivation up.
Are there things that could be improved? Sure. But the developer is extremely responsive to feedback and the app is constantly updated and improved. All you need to do is ask for a fix or a feature and chances are it will happen.
