There is nothing else like the program. Dr Juneau is a true exercise scientist and his team have created a tool that can get you in shape safely. Also there are frequent updates and great communication with staff.
I have been using this app for over 15 months and I love it. There are tons of programs to choose from within the app, then once you set your course, the AI will help coach your weight, sets, reps through your training cycle. The next time you log in to train, the weights are all calculated for you and you just load the bar and execute. I really love it. It helps me stay consistent. You can chose from different splits, full body, powerlifting, home gym...there’s so much, and if you have any questions, you can ask Dr. Carl and he gets right back to you. I’m very impressed.
Been using the app, I think it’s really life changing. I’ve read and listened to so much fitness material over the years. I even did an online program offered by precision nutrition they use to run called Scrawny to Brawny, had an online coach with it. But nothing compares to this app. It makes everything easy, efficient and feels optimal. I really enjoy my workouts, and hit the weights with new confidence.
EDIT The developer is very responsive to requests and criticism so I think i just jumped the gun in my criticism here. I downloaded the latest build and the crashing and lost workouts appear to have been fixed. I’ve bumped this up to 4 stars as i believe this apps algorithm will be a real boon to my training. Sorry for the hasty review Carl!
I have tried several workout apps and this is fantastic. The AI challenges me more than Fitbod ever did. Also, I was away from the gym for a while due to a bout of the flu and subsequent recovery, and the AI adjustment for the time away was almost 100% spot on. The app will push you in a very good way.
When I first got the app I liked the functionality but struggled with the cost. I made the decision to try it for a year and see how it works. I am only 3 mos in but I know the answer. Squat up 66lbs, deadlift up 130lbs, bench up 53lbs. It works! Also have to comment that support is great, very responsive and thorough. I pepper Carl and Christelle with questions and they always respond quickly.
In the questionnaire I submitted that I have been lifting for 3+ years (the maximum available) and they assign me 12 working sets for an entire upper body workout? This app is a workout stretch at best. Also, the app completely deletes your current workout every time you use Spotify to change a song or answer a text. Have fun reentering all your workout sets and reps for the day every time you change the song. 0/10
Great gym companion.
Really appreciate the support and I love Dr Muscle app :) Have to say, I tried Fitbod app too and seems pretty random. It officially replaced my Fitbod app that I have previously used in the last 2 years and I’ve never achieved this much progression in my 1RM in a short period of time as I do now.
I'm 45, M, 6'7", 270lbs. As a kid (16-18) I was a competitive power lifter and wrestler. Seems somewhere around 22 I say down on the couch and didn't get up for 20yrs. Five years ago I weighed in at just over 430lbs. I got the weight off through diet and LOTS of LISS cardio. Earlier in 2019 forward progress stalled hard. That's when I started incorporating strength training. I tried and handful of short term programs and did a lot of research before I found Dr. Muscle. In just two weeks I've seen larger strength gains with Dr. M than I had over the last six months. The structured progressive overload, varied programs, excellent customer service, customizable, and adaptability of the app all work in concert to maximize your efforts. Worth every penny and I will continue to use the app as long as I'm the gym.
