Great Updates 5/5
Love the last set of updates including (especially) the auto increase workout max options! It’s quickly becoming my go to workout tracker!
Checks All the Boxes 5/5
The app does everything you would expect of a complete workout log. It’s layout is intuitive and its features provide logical support to the athlete that wants to leave paper behind, without having to play with a spreadsheet.
Apple Watch ASAP 4/5
By Alan Topic
The only bad thing about it is that it’s not for Apple Watch too
Must Have for Lifters 5/5
I’ve tried most of the apps. This one is best by far. JEFIT comes in a distant 2nd.
Not bad but could be improved 4/5
By Timmmmmmm m
Works great for just tracking what you’ve lifted, but could use some new features. Would love to see the ability to plan workouts ahead and see routines on a calendar. Would also like to be able to plug in planner weights/reps for a routine I’ve already designed. The interface is not bad but navigating is not always very intuitive.
For simply keeping a log of what you lift it is great. The trial period is not quite enough to find that out though.
Practical And Powerful 5/5
There are many reasons why I think this is the best workout logger you can find for mobile.
Quick and easy to set-up and use (everything makes sense)
Great design and attention to detail
Rest timers automatically start when you log a set
Great charts make it easy to track your progress
Data is easy to back-up and export / import
Powerful features you can grow in to using over time to automate your routines
Keep up the great work!
I’ve come to love the app 5/5
HeavySet has become my go to app to log my workouts. I used to use Strong and tried out a few other apps, but since HeavySet was released, it’s the only app I’ve used to track my workouts. The UI is intuitive and organizing workouts is a breeze. The recent updates have only made it more compete with the addition of a plate calculator, which was the only thing it was really missing compared to the other apps. Minimal and beautiful, I enjoy using HeavySet during my workouts as much as I enjoy working out itself! Plus, for $5 to unlock all the apps features, it’s one of the cheaper, if not cheapest, paid apps with which to log workouts.
Easy to learn, easy to use. 5/5
This fitness app gets the user interface correct. Super easy to figure out within minutes of first launch. Very pleased to have found and purchase this app.
Ability to Add Notes 4/5
I love this app. I’ve been using it in nearly every workout. However, if it had the ability to add notes after completing an exercise, this would take it 5 levels up.
Best app for seriously tracking training I’ve ever seen 5/5
I love Heavy Set and have invested a lot of time learning how best to use it and building my programs into it. It’s the best app for seriously tracking training I’ve ever seen. I recently had an issue transferring data to a new phone, and the quick responses on this issue make the experience that much better.
App kept crashing on me every time I tried to view or edit a workout.
Great App 5/5
Very easy to create workout routines and to edit them on the fly. The auto population of weight and reps based on the previous set is a welcome feature as is the ability to preset variable rest times between sets with audible alert countdown.
I used to used another app called MetricMe, but this is far superior for weightlifting.
It does have a few bugs. What I’ve found so far:
- editing reps/weights after a set is complete will sometime change the info for the previous set
- sometimes the countdown timer doesn't start despite pressing the Log set button
My wishlist for future enhancements is the ability to link a heart rate monitor, visible timer so you can keep track at a glance and the ability to adjust the volume on the audible alert.
Fantastic, but not quite perfect. 4/5
I have used Fitness Point Pro for 4 years, and have never found an app that improved on the simplicity of it. Heavy Set is very, very close to being able to be a better app, especially from a design perspective. My biggest complaint is the inability to use RPEs in the “intensity” field, only percentages. As many powerlifters use RPE, this would be a very beneficial addition.
Heavyset is way better than Strong or any other app 5/5
By Lonely Phuqer
I’ve tried out Strong, Fitbod, and Stacked. Heavyset is far better than all of them. The way the data is put together. The ease of use. How easy it is to just add sets and reps. Changing weight or having it remember the last one you put in. Everything about the OS is intuitive and sleek. I used to write on pen and paper. Now I’m using HeavySets! Forget all the rest! Try it, you won’t be disappointed. After one workout I was sold on it.
Love the app!!! 4/5
It’s been about a year since I started to use this app and I absolutely love it! The reason why I didn’t give it the 5th star is because I wish it would be compatible with iwatch! Can we get an update so we can use it on iwatch please?
Great app 5/5
For a long time I was a jefit user. But hated that you can not add rep ranges ie: 5 sets 8-12reps. With app I can do all that plus track "As many reps as possible. Very clean interface, small app in size. And will allow you to import and export workouts. So long Jefit, it was a great run.
Super helpful 5/5
Big ups for making a simple and functional lifting tracker app, just what I was looking for. Best one I've found for free, just reviewing because I really appreciate it!
Good workout app if u pay $5 5/5
Still good value. Using it for a while now and it's great. Worth $5
Wanted to like it 1/5
I suppose if you only do workouts with straight sets and reps this will work for you. I do complex workouts with formats like:
1A: 1-2 sets X 60 secs
1B: 4 sets X 15 secs
2A: 2 sets X 12 reps
2B: 2 X 12
3A: 2 X 12
3B: 2 X 12
HIIT: 3-6 sets 60 secs work, 120 secs rest
I don't see how to create this format with this app. If it's possible, please someone tell me how because I'd like to use an app instead of paper to track my workouts.
It would also be helpful to have basic instructions in the app, because it's not intuitive to create a routine. It took me a lot of trial and error to figure out how to enter a workout, then I realized I can't do what I want to do.
I love this app but Needs an update it keeps crashing every time I create a workout routine and I'm not in the mood to start over and retyping assuming that would work which it doesn't do the job.
Love this app 5/5
This app is perfect! It's super-easy to navigate, create routines, log a set/reps, set the timer for rest, etc. If you're looking for an app to log your workouts, your search is over. Just download it now - it's really a no-brainer.
Waste of time and $4.99 1/5
By pecs in the city
Clunky, non-user friendly interface. Hit the wrong button and you're done with the workout when all you wanted to do was add a set or an additional exercise. I want my money back.
Swipe up! 5/5
By P90X nut
Swipe up on the timer to get timer presets. Swipe left to see the history on that move.
If you messed up and logged the wrong numbers, use the edit button up top to fix your entry.
There is a learning curve to the app. Once you understand how the routine should look and work in the app, the app just gets easier to work with. I've been going through and changing routines I had initially put in. The result is less fiddling and more doing.
An example move would be to have bench press as move A, B, and C. With reps set at 10, 8, and 6. Log your weight, look and the screen to see set number of reps to do next (you'll see 8, then 6).
The value set on "sets" goes A-C then repeats.
Great app 5/5
App works great, easy to use
Great tracker 5/5
Always been skeptical about gym trackers. Most trackers take to long to enter data or get to convoluted with all the extra data. Iv been impressed with how fluid it is. Data entry is easy and the auto rest timer is convenient. It took a few tries to get it working how I wanted but I think I'll be using it for awhile. One thing I would like to see is a lock rotation option, and because most of my workouts are on the fly I'd like to be able to do super sets when the mood strikes without having to create a routine.
Great App! Thank you! 5/5
Love this app!! So easy to use to create workouts and routines on the fly without having to go through 5+ steps. Love the ability to set several timers without having leave your workout and go into settings. You can start working out and change the workout midstream to add an exercise right in between sets with ease. Most can't do this at all. You'd have to create an entirely new routine. I've tried most every app looking for one like this. Great clarity in seeing all your stats in one place so you can keep challenging yourself to lift more. I also highly recommend this developers app Seconds Pro that I use every day to improve workouts and many personal development applications.
Great app with excellent support 5/5
I was holding out for a workout app like this. It is really easy and intuitive to enter your data during a workout and keep yourself on pace. You can structure your workouts however you like with super sets, etc., and the app will automatically advance to the next lift.
My favorite part is that it tracks stats like your 1rm or total workload over time and notifies you of a personal best. That always keeps me motivated to push myself.
Previously, I tracked my data in Google Sheets and the developer worked with me to find a format to import my old data.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but there are some very helpful YouTube videos.
Buyer's Remorse 2/5
At first, I thought this would be a great app that would meet my needs. But after purchasing a license, I quickly realized I should have evaluated it more closely. For some, it may be okay.
I have been using an app that has not been updated since 2010. I tried tons of others, but none had the features I wanted. This one almost dethroned the old app as my workout tracker.
The author has been very responsive to questions, however there are some issues
1) I seem to be having issues deleting routines, workouts, or exercises that had the numbers entered incorrectly or were accidentally duplicated.
2) there is no way to input time/body weight/calorie/distance based exercises. I know this is meant to track weight lifting, but even my strength and size workouts have a warmup on the rower in them. And it is really inconvenient to have to switch to another app to get my timer going or if I am doing IWT/sprints/etc.
3) there is no way to edit an incorrectly entered value.
There are some things this app does very well. It is easy to see trends, and old workouts. Creating routines is easy and using "named workouts" to build a routine was really easy to do. The rest timer is one of the best I have used and the beeps are nice if you use Seconds (runloop's timer app which I strongly recommend).
Importing data from other apps was easy
Unfortunately, I will be going back to my old, unsupported app until there are some changes in this. Other than the fact that it has not been updated since the iPhone 4, it still has most of the features I want, even if it is a little slow.
By Mr Steeze for the W
Really excited to start using this app. The interface is really accessible and there's finally a lifting app that's intuitive and not impossible to figure out. Very aesthetic as well which is always a plus!
Best of the bunch!!! 5/5
I've tried almost every app out there. They are either too complicated, or don't offer enough features. I'm very excited to find this app! The support is outstanding and even has YouTube tutorials from the developer. The interface is beautiful and easy to operate during a workout. I'm looking forward to any updates this app might have. I've uploaded 3 years worth of data on it already.
