I paid the yearly price for the app. It doesn’t show up on Apple Watch which is a bummer because I hate having to bring my phone to the gym. I like the workout plans available but it’s not always easy to search, swap, or log an exercise. Bonus workouts do not allow you to track the 6 rounds separately...just a lot of things wrong for the price you have to pay. Would also be nice to download a workout and use it offline!
At first glance, this app is far better than the BodySpace app as far as tracking exercises. Once you start using the app however, that changes. There is no simple way to check what you’ve done in the past for an exercise. You have to completely exit the workout you are doing to get to your exercise history, then go back into your workout and hope that it didn’t just delete everything you’ve put in. On top of that, when you complete an exercise, there are times that it will simply refuse to save the numbers. There have been times where it has taken 10+ attempts to get numbers to save before they actually have. I would normally tell someone with glitch complaints “maybe your phone isn’t up to date” but all of this is happening right after updating my brand new phone and making sure all of my apps were completely up to date. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone until these issues (and others like it not syncing with your BodySpace account on bodybuilding.com) are resolved. You would do better with going directly to whoever made the program you are working through. You would do better with your phones notepad app. Heck, you would do better with a pen and paper.
Still no chromecast support. Could care less about Apple TV
This latest update seems to have broken the app. Nothing loads for me and I get lots of errors asking me to try again later.
Simple miss on overall function to not track reps on Apple Watch
So informational and the instructions are clear with set plans!
I know you neutered BodySpace to introduce this paid app. I will not be renewing because the app doesn’t get the most basic things right. 1. ALLOW MUSIC to play over the videos. We are all working out with our Bluetooth in, I shouldn’t have to restart my music every time I watch a video. Speaking of videos... 2. LET VIDEOS play on the screen instead of just watching a countdown! Several workout apps play videos so you can adjust while you workout! Why is Bodybuilding.com so far behind! 3. LOOK AT BODYSPACE if you really want to replace BodySpace with a paid service, incorporate our workout tracking with it and give us weekly updates on our progress. These are extremely simple fixes that would justify the cost. I give 2 stars just for the workouts which are fine but struggle on a poorly made app.
This app is almost a perfect solution! The user interface is great looking and intuitive. Tons of workout programs and I haven’t come across any major bugs. The only thing keeping this from being a five star is that I can’t figure out how to easily substitute exercises in my workout schedule. Here is my use case: I am following Shortcut to Shred and using my home gym. I don’t have a smith machine for the decline bench press so I want to substitute in the regular decline bench press or a decline dumbbell press. This is where I get stuck - so right now I am keeping paper notes and just using this app as a workout schedule and not a workout tracker. Otherwise an excellent app!
The app is great on its own. They have a lot of Portugal’s you can follow. However, I’d hope that with the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s an opportunity to make the app more user friendly by Sony video casting to any other device. The only update made was for Apple TV. Not everyone has Apple TV. It would’ve been nice if it could be carry on anything, the same way YouTube music can me carry on any TV. This is disappointing.
This app has everything you need for workouts and tracking them. The only caveat is that the app hardly works or loads workouts. There’s nothing worse than getting read to track a workout and the app is stuck loading for 5 minutes. Very disappointed, especially when it costs money
