    Android App: add workout log

    I really think you guys can corner the market and push out the Jefit program by doing

    1. a workout log
    2. doing it better than Jefit's (which sucks MAJOR BALLS, it is actually terrible!) also the other workout log apps are also terrible. They are all lacking in easy to navigate UI.

    Features:

    Add an exercise from the already present list:
    OR start typing an exercise and it will suggest which ones you are thinking of based on what you have typed already.

    Once selected, you must set the weight that you did. Buttons should look like this: (or manually type it in the box)

    + 2.5 Toggle Plus/Minus
    + 50 + 30 + 20 + 1
    + 100 + 40 + 10 + 5

    Then amount of reps, same idea:

    +1 + 3 + 5
    + 6 + 4 + 2

    Then press Ok and it adds it as a set.

    For exercises that are based on time, like hangs or paralettes, I suggest a cool and unique feature (not to mention not difficult to code)

    You have an analog clock, set to 12:00, both arrows pointing up. Then you put your finger on the arrow, and drag it to the right. A corresponding number changes in seconds. If you did 80 seconds for example, you just drag the arrow around one full circle then to the 4. Or, if you have not done the exercise yet, there should be a button at the bottom, Start, that starts the clock and counts up. That same button should now read stop and you can stop when you finish and can now amend the time by dragging it forward or back, incase it is not accurate.

    Lastly with this fun little clock, you should have a second button at the bottom called countdown. This time, you set the clock to your desired workout time and then hit countdown, and it counts down from there and a sound plays when it finishes. Again, you can amend the amount of time incase you went over it or were not able to continue. When you confirm the number, it adds that as a set for that exercise.

    I absolutely agree with this. I am looking for a different app now that will do this. It would be great if bodybuilding.com could do this. I see all this PDF material all over the site for suggested workout tracking but if we can avoid bringing paper and pencil into the gym and provide customers what seems to be a staple for their routines (easy tracking capability) then sign me up!

    You should check out GymProvise. It is a paid app that's a Workout Tracker, Workout Planner, Exercise Directory, Progress Tracker and general fitness companion.

    It's got 350+ exercises with images and instructions, lets you setup your Training Program in minutes, supports advanced training techniques like Supersets & Dropsets, and enables you to easily track you Workout in real time with many tracking features e.g. Rest Timer/Stopwatch. It also has a bunch of great Charts to see your progress, and lets you optionally post summaries of your Workouts to Facebook.

    It was designed and built by a small group each of whom have more than 10 years of training experience. We know our way around a Gym and we think it's pretty well reflected in the app. We also know that a bodybuilding app should not disrupt Workouts by being cumbersome and difficult to use (like many bodybuilding apps out there), otherwise it defeats the purpose of said app.

    Couldn't agree more with not buying an app.
    I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

    If you don't know what it is to fail, how will you ever succeed? Tomorrow is not promised.

    Wish the app would let you log in your current workout that is on your calendar. I tried it via the mobile website and ended up having 8 copies of the workout in my tracker. Had to go back to the pen and paper tracking method.

    I tried many logging apps, including Jefit, which is a powerfull, but totally inconvenient app. Finally, I decided to write my own. I personally do not need much from a logging app - just let me enter weights, reps, display what I did earlier and provide a timer for rest.
    So I added all this basic stuff in an Android app Bodybuilding Log
    There are no ads, no internet access is required - just a small utility.
    If you need something simple, you can give it a try, I would be very glad if my small utility helped someone else as well

    Yep. Couldn't agree more. Gymprovise is AWESOME. Best on Android by an absolute mile!!!

    There's a free version out. It's so good I paid for it.

    Ill have to check that one out. A lot of other apps i have seen seem very slow and unresponsive. One thing I never liked about the body building.com app is it just felt like every time i entered a value it would take time to update to the site or something... like a lag.. felt like more work then an aid.
