    One of my New Years resolutions was to start keeping track of my workouts (# of sets, reps, etc). I've always heard it can really help you improve but I never bothered to do it.

    Any recommendations on iPhone apps to track workouts with? There seem to be quite a few... Anybody have any preference??

    I use RepCount. It's fine, tracks your Pr's and work done. All you need really

    Yeah that's obviously an option but using the phone would be better because I always have it with me and I like to listen to music when I workout anyways

    If only there were a website where people could log their workout, and other strong guys could read these logs and give input. Maybe it could be a sub-forum of a greater forum dedicated to strength and conditioning.

    Who am I kidding, it would never work.

    Notepad app

    Memo app

    Etc.
    Yea, but where would you even begin to look for something like that?

    Please stop trolling.

    A good one is Symmetric Strength, but it is not an iphone app.

    OneNote, Excel, Word.

    I started using the thesquatrack.com/ again, too, but nothing beats pen and paper.

    I'm with @TheeFaulted on this one. Apps are nice but they don't typically provide feedback unless the app is somehow linked to a group of guy/girls with the same goals as you

    I use fitnotes (android) it's the best one I've tried. Keeps track of prs, has a max predicting calculator, graphs, good default set of exercises, the ability to add both exercises and exercise groups, create workouts out of a bunch of exercises, countdown timer that can be set to auto start. It's a great app I think.

    Edit: I like it better than pen and paper. By far. Easier to search and faster to find what I have done and what I'm doing this time.

    I spent ten years doing thai boxing and boxing at my local gym and then stopped for 3 years due to personal circumstances I thought many times and have decided to get back into it and I found that this was way better than any app I could find good solid materials it's just not for everyone e as it as a price and most want the knowledge and wisdoma for free lol anyway worth looking at anyway as I found it helpful getting me back into training https://tinyurl.com/zcqfe2w

    Seconds is really good for interval training stuff like sprints

    Let me clarify. I'm not looking for support, criticism, feedback, any of that. I just want an app to keep track of my sets, reps and weight

    I used to use StrongLifts, starting strength is a far better program tho.

    Mehdi is a fraud, be careful!
