Strength is an Android app I designed to make it simple and easy for someone who's never lifted weights or done a squat before to get stronger. When I started lifting weights a few years ago, I had a hard time figuring out what I was supposed to do. What equipment should I use? Am I using the right form? How do I keep from hurting myself?

With Strength, I hope I can answer those questions for you. If you know what you're doing, you can set up your own custom program. But if you need assistance, I'll help you set up a program. Then you'll automatically be reminded when it's time for a workout. You'll be shown which lifts to do, and at what weight. If you don't know how to do a lift, there's a whole section with articles and videos describing the proper form. If you're having trouble with a lift, the weight will automatically be reduced until you can work back up. Finally there are interactive graphs showing how your lifts are progressing.

Good so far except... Can't begin a new workout. I set up, and finished one. Now the program just stays at the completed workout scteen. Not frozen, just won't let me do anything useful anymore.

Missing some key functionality You can't stop a workout once you start it, so make sure your weights are correct BEFORE starting your workout. You can't edit a workout once it's done nor can you DELETE a workout - this really sucks because if you accidentally start a workout, the only way to get out of it is to mark it as complete - you'll have bad data in your stat tracker. You can't adjust weights during a workout..and you can apparently only do one workout PER DAY. If the developer would clean up these and a few other issues, I'd give it 5 stars. I gave it one star because it just misses on so many points. I didn't bother trying to contact the developer because every other reviewer that said they've tried hasn't gotten a response - instead I'm posting the deficiencies here so you won't waste your $2.

Awesome app. Just fix a couple things, like being able to change the warmup and switch weight during a workout, and I'll give it 5 stars.
