Need Tips on How to Improve a Powerlifting Mobile App


#1

I’ve been recording my training using an app I made for android. I put it in the google play store a while ago but it doesn’t have many users and I’m getting no feedback so I’m not sure what I could do to improve it.

Could someone give it a try and give their opinion?
It is in the play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.liftlog

It has a few cool things like tracking RPE, looking up history of certain exercises, wilks calculator, automatic backup when you uninstall and re-install the app, 1 - rep max calculator.

I’ll give it a go. I’m in meet prep right now so not doing too much volume but i’ll check it out for you.


#3

Just downloaded it, will give it a shot.


#4

I’ll have a go on it. I much prefer pen and paper though.


#5

I just finished my meet prep using the app and I was just thinking a useful feature would be a tool that could show you your total volume (weekly / monthly) in tabular or graph format. Let me know what you think of it.

It isn’t bad. Easy to use, simple.

But, like I said, I keep my logs pen and paper. If I didn’t this would definitely be an option.

Nothing for iPhone users hahaha? That being said, I personally just log everything on T-Nation so I doubt I’ll use an app. Perhaps having a function to change the recorded workouts into text with a clear cut format? That’ll help people with online training logs a ton.

I added in my training from the week and it’s pretty simple, not bad.

I like the idea of tracking tonnage during training, I often do it, even if I don’t record it. As I use it more like say during training i’ll give you more feedback.

I have been looking for something like this for so long. Thank, man.

Have you considered making an app where you input your workout / cycle, or log in a famous one (Candito’s 6 week, Kizens Bench, etc.) and it shows up, eliminating the need spreadsheets and excel? Kind of like the Candito’s 6 week app/5x5, but customizable.
