"Closest Thing To A Gym Notebook"

Reviewed by / Mar 13, 2015

Record your workouts with this simple app.

THE VERDICT

This workout log app lets you keep track of your weight lifting and workouts with no fuss. It's simple, streamlined, and easy to use, giving you everything you need and nothing you don't.

Similar to what you'd record in your physical gym notebook, you can track weight, reps, time, and more. If you don't workout in a gym or lift weights, this app is most likely not going to be what you want.

THE PROS

You can track your lifts and make your own custom workout routines to monitor. It's easy to use and doesn't have any bells and whistles.

THE CONS

This isn't the workout app for those who workout at home because it's more focused on lifting and machine work. Also, it doesn't track eating habits or daily calorie intake.

    I like this one because you can literally use it as an exercise diary and input your own activites with times or reps. Personally I wanted an app for exactly this, not one that would tell me what to do. You can easily copy sets from one day to another or set up and store new activities. No ads either. Great app, love it.

    Take the time to learn how to use this app. Once you do, you'll be able to quickly enter your information at the gym. I'm using a 555 protocol and it takes me literally no time to put information into the phone between says. And it helps me keep track of which set I'm on. I loved it it keeps track of my progress makes me feel good. The only thing to add it something to calculate which plates on e

    Says right in the description that you can program in your Olympic lifting sessions...but how can you do that when the only two Olympic lifts that you do (snatch & clean and jerk) aren't even in the database!!
