5 Star App & Workout 5/5
By Brian Fort Mill
Best workout and app. Dramatic improvement to my exercise routine. App makes following schedule (and tracking progress) a no-brained.
Questionable performance 3/5
This app was great when I first downloaded it. Then when I got the paid version, I’ve had nothing but problems.
Great program. I love hiding the app. Tremendous results.
Great app for awesome workout 5/5
I’ve been doing StrongLifts for 5 years. It’s an amazing strength building program. The app makes it easy to keep on track!
Best starting strength program 5/5
It's simple and effective, it will keep you busy for the first year, until you become an intermediate lifter.
Latest version 3/5
Is pretty glitchy and has a lot of freezes and crashes.
Amazing app, great program, real results 5/5
Hands down best lifting program I have ever followed. This app led me and my wife to build a home gym in our garage.
Great app 5/5
Apple Watch app? 4/5
This app could really use an Apple Watch app that integrates with heart rate monitoring and possibly managing music (skip, play, stop, etc). I’ve been waiting for almost 6 months since I suggested it last and get very excited when I see an app update, but then I’m disappointed when there is no mention of the Apple Watch app.
Otherwise, the app is great and I enjoy it very much.
Best lifting app there is! 5/5
By Kirk App Tester
Best Lifting App there is.
Has enough features to be useful, but not overly complicated.
Amazingly effective 5/5
By JD's Bees
The app performs as touted. Stronger than ever!
At 63yo, following this program is the only thing that keeps me on track during a workout. Thanks, Medhi!
Great simple app 4/5
Great app very simple could use a little more toggling for free but I understand they would like to make money. Still very useful even for free
Love this! 5/5
Super easy way to get started with weight training. Please make an Apple Watch App! Would love to ditch my phone!
Need to debug 3/5
When editing weights for an ongoing workout, specifically when decreasing bench press in this case, the weight increments will go into 1.5 increments and will fail to go back to the proper increments.
A place to start 4/5
The app is glitchy. The program isn’t perfect. But you have to start somewhere. App: It’s easy to use. But the rest periods and reminders sometimes don’t cooperate. I’ll tell it to stop. Then in the middle of my set it reminds me to stop resting. Happens a lot. Program: Yes, you should be doing Starting Strength instead. But an old shoulder injury makes power cleans nearly impossible for me. And you can change from 5x5 to 3x5 in the settings. Hey, at least this is a program. You’re training instead of exercising.
Awesome tool! 5/5
Amazing tool to use to keep track, and build consistent strength. I am a Crossfit athlete who knows that to build muscle, and strength you need a regular strength training regimen. This tool, and the 5x5 program have been invaluable to making that happen!
Great free even better paid functionality 5/5
Really easy to use this app. Love that it is simple.
Love StrongLifts 5/5
By Brooke B.
Just got back to it after unrelated injuries set me back a year and swallowed my pride and started with a bare bell again, 2 weeks in and watching carbs I lost 12 lbs of fat and feeling stronger again
Changed my life💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
Easy to use, gets the job done 5/5
Perfect app. Easy to keep track of everything.
I am 58 and this workout is amazing. I highly recommend it!
Bondsman Workout 5/5
By Simon The Bail Bondsman
Best workout for strength to tackle or run through a mugg!!
App works great 5/5
Regardless of how you feel about the 5x5 workout, this app works great for tracking your 5x5 workouts. It’s simple to use, has built in timers for rest periods, and graphs of your progress.
Bigger and stronger 5/5
Getting bigger results and stronger muscles with 5x5
Great app, but really wants you to upgrade 3/5
The app advertises a lot of features in-app that would offer a lot of great flexibility to my workouts, but they’re all locked behind the pay wall. I understand the need to turn a profit, but some simple things like changing your sets/reps should be free in my mind. If you’re satisfied with the base StrongLifts plan then you won’t have any issues.
Excellent structured program!! 5/5
This is a great program for the novice through moderate lifter. Also, great for injury recovery.. ensuring gradual increases to avoid added injury
Highly recommend!! 5/5
I am a 47 year old man. I’ve never lifted before in my life. I was out of shape and overweight. I started the StrongLifts 5x5 workout four months ago. My personal results have been phenomenal so far. The transformation of my body has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve gained way more muscle than I expected in this short of a time. I still have stubborn visceral fat that I am trying to lose so I recently added HIIT on the rowing machine on my off days. I can’t wait to see where I’m at in another four months!!!! Thank you for this workout!!! And the App makes it so much easier than trying to keep track of everything yourself. Do yourself a favor and start the StrongLifts workout, download this app, and once you see how awesome it is, upgrade to the paid version. Very well might be the best ten bucks I’ve ever spent in my life; literally!!
Not sure what happened... 2/5
I had the full version of this app last year, but had to take a few months of from the gym. When I reinstalled the app yesterday, I couldn't restore my purchase. Even when I tried to buy it addition I kept getting 'there was a problem connecting to the store'. So until that's fixed, I'm going to have to look for a new app.
Great app 5/5
I used the free app at first and after a few weeks, maybe a month later I just bought the app and glad I did.
Great app 5/5
Love the app
Great app 5/5
By Perry Wiseman
This program will make you strong!
Go to app 5/5
This has been my go to workout app for years and it only gets better. I love that it keeps my records since I started. It is motivating to see where I was and encouraging to see I can get back there. I love this app and am beyond thankful that it’s free.
My yearly go-to workout to start off the year 5/5
No excuses! It’s easy and customizable depending on personal goals. I run Spartans, play Ice Hockey and run half marathons. I do 5x5 and add accessory exercises to prepare men for race season and maintain fitness for hockey in my 50s. It’s like having a personal strength training coach. If you fail, the app guides you to improve and continue building up. This is essential.
Simple and effective 5/5
App works great. Excellent for beginners since the app includes instructional videos.
Best app ever 5/5
Found this when I was searching for workout routines on YouTube. I went on to the website read everything started doing it actually this was the first app I paid for. Then when I started following this workout and began seeing results.I can safely say is Mehdi knows what he is talking about. Keep up the good work.
Simple and reliable 5/5
By Steve Hardt
Very user friendly.
Easy to use app 5/5
I’ve been looking for an app like this. It has helped me get back into a lifting routine
Excellent app. 5/5
I had been using my notepad, calculator, and timer to track my workouts. Now I can track it all in one place. Plus it takes the guesswork out. Awesome app and awesome workout. Thanks Stronglifts.
Love this app. Easy to use 5/5

Great but hate the glitch 2/5
By Typing monk
Good in keeping things simple but sometimes it will deload you even if last week it said you should add more weight.
Great Program 5/5
It does all the thinking for you. I’m hoping when I’m done with StrongLifts there’s something available for Madcow.
Great & only request quick section for form tutorial 5/5
By Izzy aka Isam
Great my brother used this along side with gnc products (protein and stuff you can get from a store, nothing illegal) and he has put it on a lot of strength and looks healthy. He hasn’t gotten bigger but very much stronger. only improvement I’d advise is the tutorials. I’d rather see pictures and read. At the same time, I’d like the info to be be precise and only for the form. Not background info such as “why this technique is better” Tho if I was interested in that, I’d appreciate a separate section for that. Great program.
Great App 5/5
Solid app that keeps you on track. Does all the planning for you whether you are hitting a plateau or taking a break. This app is my go to when lifting on a program.
By Brian t. Hotchkiss
The best beginner’s lifting regimen. Period. Stop looking for better.
Great and simple 5/5
By Work Flowiest
Just a nice way to get a nudge, challenge yourself to add, be consistent. You should be familiar with the movements. Videos are helpful.
Great App! 5/5
Been using for just a week now but already can see what a great tool this is for a beginner like me. Looking forward to getting stronger!
Unlike the other apps this one truly is free and just makes it easy to keep track of your 5 x 5 lifts
Best workout I’ve used 5/5
By Chris Zuber
I decided to get back into shape, and I’d heard of 5x5 before. After reading up on it I decided to go for it. The app makes following the plan a piece of cake. Well designed, simple, as Medhi says, it does the thinking for you. It even asked me if i wanted to deload after having to take a week off for a business trip!
Love the idea, but extremely buggy 1/5
If you use any of the customization workout options, this app becomes extremely buggy. Crashes, forgets to log my workouts
