Will subscription bug ever work? 2/5
Can’t go far in this app without subscription my subscription isn’t working anymore lol how do I get money back or fix this dam app
Needs work 3/5
By Jwise 2340
Overall, this is a good app. There a few things that need work.
1. The ability to add/decrease weight on any given set. Instead of cheating the system doing less weight or injuring yourself by doing too much.
2. The alert system needs to be redesigned. Sometimes the vibrate function doesn’t work and I find myself standing around waiting and the timer had already been going for 15-20 seconds.
3. The time between supersets. If you have to wait on a machine it throws the time off.
But like I said, the app is pretty good.
Great APP and Service! 5/5
I love this APP. It has instilled a “drive” in me that I didn’t have with other apps. I’m seeing results and feel worked after every workout.
It takes alittle bit to learn all the nuances of the app, but a simple email to the developer is all it takes. I was amazed by the rapid response and then a follow up email seeing how I made out. Very personal. He didn’t have to do that, but by doing so, has secured my pro subscription status for a long time. Thanks!
Great but.... 4/5
The app is great but after my workout today (3/9/18) it has froze and will not update my results and will not schedule me for a new workout.
Love it! I have the free version and it’s amazing!!
Great Training App 5/5
Would definitely recommend this app to anyone looking for a jump start in the gym. It takes care of tracking your progress and automatically increases weight and reps as you go. I have already seen solid gains and I’ve only been using this app for about 3 months.
At one point I had a small issue with my subscription being recognized and emailed the developers (there’s a button in the app to report any problems) and within THE SAME DAY they responded that they’ve taken care of the issue. I’ve also noticed after reading through the reviews that nearly every suggestion was later added to the app. There is now a pause function, disabling of supersets, great variability, options to skip/change an exercise and the option to work out early if you want to work out more than 3 times a week. Overall it shows that there is a lot of work that goes into this app and the Devs really are trying to take care of its users
Great app but needs work/options 2/5
I absolutely love this app!! I mean I’m actually paying for the subscription and I never do that(mainly cuz I’m seeing results and it’s tracking on its own) but there are a few options that need to be added. For starters those joined workouts where you have to hop from one equipment to the other needs to have an option to either disable that or give us time in between to get to the workouts. My gym is small but if I was at a big gym I’d have to run across just to get to the other piece and by than that’s 10-20 seconds lost because it starts counting right away. The other is it should give you list of workouts so if you don’t have a piece of equipment in your gym it’ll give you options of equipments/workouts that target the same area and you can choose which one you want/can do . Otherwise this is a great app.
Needs work 2/5
I’ve done about 15 session on this app and I’ve probably bench pressed every one of them this app really needs to mix thing up I feel like I’m doing the same thing over and over again. Bench press, curls , shrug EVERY SINGLE WORKOUT
Bau5 app 5/5
Simply, the best workout app!!! Sure it has room for improvement but I've already had significant amount of progress and it's only been a few weeks. I can't wait for updates and different routines perhaps? 🙌🏼💪🏼🏋🏻♀️
Very Rushed 3/5
I love the workouts this app gives me, but I hate that there is no option to pause the workout. Example: after a heavy final set of squat, I have only 90 seconds to refill my water bottle, re-rack weight, find the next machine and get ready before it’s already time to go again. It is very rushed and I feel like that can cause injury. You have the option to skip the exercise if you’re feeling any discomfort, but I would rather focus on the exercise than to rush myself and finish in the time it gave me.
Also, if you have a workout partner, this isn’t a great app for the two of you too go off.
Great app 5/5
Why i love this app:
It started with bench press with no weight(20 reps) then 25 on each side(17 reps) then 45 on each side 10(reps) then it spiked up to 45 + 25 + 10 on each side for 5 reps but i weight 140 and I'm 19 and i cant even do that yet i don't even think with a spotter but if you turn down the reps in the bottom to zero and swipe right it tells you why you did no reps and i choose it was to heavy and it fixed it the next time which i loved.
- Try it you'll like it
Great app! 5/5
Been using the app for a few months and I am overall very happy with it. It does repeat the same exercises but by doing so I was able to put on more weight on the bar. Pretty flexible in how it lets you manage the workload passing.
I encountered an issue with the app but the people in support were prompt to respond and fix it.
I'd consider myself a moderate lifter and wanted to find something to switch up my routine and this app caught my eye. Although I was very intrigued the first two weeks or so the workouts kept getting repetitive and you're not getting much of a variety of exercises for each muscle group. I could see this app being highly beneficial for beginners or novice individuals but past that you're not going to get much growth due to the low volume of each muscle group within each workout. Just my opinion.
It’s a great app BUT 2/5
It’s a great app has huge potential BUT if I have to close grip bench 295 for 6 again I’m going to snap my elbow. I train hard An I train heavy but I have never done bench 3 days in a row along with arms. Then for rdl the app says I was to strong an stops at 375 for 6 reps. Has great potential but needs work cmon guys.
Wouldn't Recommend Currently 3/5
I hit the regularly and I consider my self a physically fit individual. The weight jumps were ridiculous. All that information input at the set up didn't seem to matter. Overall, it's didn't show me anything I didn't know and was only a challenge for the weight I can't rep correctly. Three stars for user friendly, clean look and the timer was beneficial but the workout it's self didn't make much sense to me.
Good and Bad. 4/5
Despite the lack of variation, I really enjoy this app! It allows me to focus on lifting instead of thinking about what I am going to do next, therefore minimizing unnecessary gaps between set. On the other hand, the algorithm does seem a bit off at times and there need to be a good 4-5 more exercises thrown in on different days. Soooooo bench heavy...
This app doesn’t work properly I want a refund 1/5
By Stefan woyniok
This app need so much work is not flexible and when you try to adjust your input the only choice is to stop the workout you can be injured pretty quick
A great option for new guys 5/5
It does pretty much everything besides putting your weights back on. I would love to see more workouts added.
Love it 5/5
Straight up love using this app to guide me through workouts.
Overall Excellent App 4/5
I like the fact that I can go in the gym get a nice workout in less then 45min. I use to workout for hours at a time and hit a plateau, which is why I decided to try out the app. So far great... I am bulking up but hopefully ill start to lean out. Never really liked the bulky look. The reason I gave 4 stars is the variation in the workout the only way to trick the app into giving you a different workout is to say the equipment isn’t available. Just like anything in the life the body starts to remember the routine therefore you really don’t get the full benefits of the routine and are not just going through the motions. I’m trying to get lean and not bulky but overall great app
So far 4/5
Really enjoy the app so far. Really insane jumps in weight, but it causes me to push myself.
What is going on? 2/5
By Arrow dawg
How does this app determine what weight and rep amount. Because at my fitness level the reps were too high and so was the weight.
Sure you do fewer reps, but it doesn't let you adjust weight
And if you want to do more reps it doesn't let you. This app had promise.
Weight is off 4/5
Can figure how the weight jumps so high. Good app. Good sweat.
I ship dat 5/5
By mcgee jordan
Good but can be better 3/5
Need more optimization to the workouts; weight pushed, workout variations. Need to be android friendly. On the right track
Love it 4/5
This is great for people on the go, or aren't in this field of expertise. It watches what you can lift and what you can't, it doesn't over work you. Stick with it and do what it says and it's like having a personal trainer in your pocket. I want to upgrade to pro to see how much better it will be for me but I can't commit to the 89$ a year. I get why they do it like this but a cheaper monthly or an outright purchase of a pro app and I would be okay.
Love this app! 5/5
Like it so far! 5/5
Great app for beginners or experienced lifters!
Good not great 3/5
I'm a personal trainer and would not recommend to a client. However, I do find it useful for off days when I want to get a solid workout in to start my day. It gives a decent variety for when you want a plan that works out several muscle groups in one day.
If you want an app to get you in peak physical condition, this is definitely not it. The algorithm clearly needs work - the reps/weight ratio are off.
Have it in your quiver of health apps, but don't make it your main source for fitness guidance.
Great Amateur/Moderate Workout App 5/5
This app is pretty good for Amateurs or moderate individuals who are learning how to workout. However, you must know your limits and do push yourself to do weights that are beyond your strength level.
P.S. Also, supersets are kinda annoying. I hope in the next update you have the option to turn that off!
Good App 4/5
I did about a week and half of a trial run on this app and decide to try the 3 month pro plan. Overall you work your butt off, haven't had a bad workout. But, here is where it falls short of 5 stars. 1.) so far it has been the same 4 workouts. Upper A and B, Lower A and B. Need more exercises there are 1000's out there. Abs, lower back and good hamstring exercises have not been on here. There is a Lower Body workout that does 2 quad exercises and goes into shoulders. Last time I checked Shoulders were upper body. I would like to see a selection screen of muscle groups that I select and the workout is created. I also would like the ability to drop the weight down if I miss a set due to it being to heavy. Like I said missing the mark but the app is so close!
Good app so far! 4/5
So far i have enjoyed this app alot but I would like to see an upper, lower, rest, upper, lower, rest option, or even an everyother day with upper, lower alternating. This app has a ton of potential! I would just like to work out more than 3 days of lifting and have it more balanced with atleast 2 upper days, and 2 lower days per week. Thanks Dev team and keep working at it!
Great so far, 14 Workouts in 4/5
By 7965 sqri
I really like this app, as I feel it really pushes you to your full capabilities. I have yet to upgrade to the paid version but plan to do so after a month of using the free app. The reason for 4star rating is I wish I could decide to super set before each exercise not just at the beginning of each workout. My gym gets really busy and sometimes I can get the first super set completed but then the second set of super set is impossible due to availability of equipment.
Great workouts, great apps! 5/5
I cant say enough about the app. The routine is great and I am the strongest I have ever been. Been a frequent user of BAU5 for about 18 months and have really enjoyed how functional the app is and how easy it is to use. It is akin to having a personal trainer at your disposal.
Lots of promise but ultimately falls short. 2/5
At first, I was pretty excited to use this app. Starting out from day one I could tell there was something off. I'm not sure what algorithm the devs use to judge the weight and reps per set, but it's waaay off. For example, one set for bench had me doing 185lbs for 12 reps. Then on the next set, it chose to do 245lbs for 6 reps. There's also not much variety. If you like to do barbell bench, then this is for you. But anyone that's been training for a while (or even a moderate lifter) can tell you it's a bad idea to have someone do bench for every workout. After the insane difficulty spike with these lifts on upper day, I figured lower would be better. 2 leg exercises (leg press and RDL) was it for legs. After that, they thought it was a good idea to throw more shoulders and the exact same arm routine (bb curl + close grip bench). Guess what day 3 was? That's right, more bench. Oh and Day 4? Yup, more bench press. Fix the algorithm and vary the exercises and this app would be great.
This app is great. It takes all the thinking out of it. It will push you to the limit which is great
Simple to use... biggest thing I can say. I wish it was around the 10 $ price point .. great app tho 5/5
Best workout app I've used 5/5
What this app lacks in customization it makes up for in comprehensive training. It tells you exactly what to lift. If you can't, tell it why not and it makes adjustments. Costs more but worth it.
This app is amazing!
Best app yet 5/5
Tried a lot of apps for "personal trainer" type apps. This by far is the best and most challenging! Recommend to anyone trying to take it to the next level!!!!!!
Great App 5/5
By Leon Phelp$
I was beginning to plateau in workouts. I started working out everyday to try to increase my gains with no avail. After using this app for about 14 sessions I already see huge gains and I'm going to purchase the pro upgrade.
Great app 2/5
Great app just wish i could change weight.
So far so good 5/5
Did 3 sessions and got pretty good pumps and gains.
Solid App 5/5
Some times the workouts are too long because I start with cardio. Otherwise pretty solid, although I hope they keep improving
Great app 5/5
Love the app
Excellent App for workouts 5/5
Perfect for getting over that plateau.
Loving this app. Continually doing it helps improve strength and also helped me cut fat
Pretty good app!! 4/5
By Aditya Miriyala
This app is probably the best workout app there is. I've used many other well known apps but they don't meet my requirements.
Initial set up was amazing! It's like this app understand where every individual stands so that you can set it up exactly according to you. Hats off to the app developers for all the hard work they spent on minute details.
The only reason for 4 stars is that, this app only lets you work out for 3 days a week.
I normally tend to workout 5 days a week (resistance training)with one day active rest and one day complete rest.
That's probably the only draw back. If they could incorporate a workout routine for an individual to workout more than three days, it would be amazing!
Anyway, keep up the good work guys. My 100% appreciation to you all.
By Polo Fresh
I've been using this app for about 2 weeks now my biggest suggestion is for it to give me a heads up for the amount of weight i need to have ready or add before the timer starts like for the super sets I waste time adding the weight it wants me to lift because it doesn't let me know ahead of time.
