  • Good but glitchy

    I’m six cycles in, and it’s a pretty good, intuitive and customizable app. There are some odd choices. Some examples: (1) The way body weight is tracked on the graph, you basically have to log it every single week so that it corresponds with the graph tracking progress; (2) If there’s a way to remove sets from the assistance lifts, it’s not intuitive. This became a problem for me when I ran into a glitch with the scrolling rep counter and the app added over 1,000 reps to my third and fourth sets (why would the app even allow the rep counter to go into the triple digits, let alone quadruple?). And because you can’t long touch and change the rep counter or figure out how to kill those sets, fixing them is a cumbersome process; (3) You can’t delete a workout if you accidentally save it browsing the site, so even if you’re not at the gym and accidentally save your OHP workout on squat day, your only fix is to go in and edit the workout you saved—or you will inadvertently jump a week ahead in the cycle. You should be able to delete any of your most recent workouts. Finally, it would be nice if the app incorporated a few more of the the Beyond 5/3/1 variations. It’s nice that it has the Joker sets, FSL, the 13-wk challenge, etc., but there are a bunch of other variations in the book and working within the context of the app, there are only so many ways you can change your routine every couple cycles.
  • It’s a great app if you love 531.

    It’s a great app if you love 531. I might be mistaken but it seems to be lacking some of the features it has on Android. I might be wrong. I thought when I used it on Android it had the Building the Monolith challenge and I don’t see it here on IOS I just want all the features I had on Android.
  • Will buy

    Functionality is solid. It’s all there. Calculates everything for you. It’s hard to get used to the navigation, but I’ll learn. You enter you body weight and the only way out is to hit cancel. Confusing. I’ve exited out of the app mid workout and lost the data I had entered bc I didn’t hit save. Kinda annoying.
  • Docked a star due to lack of instructions

    Great app. But as a newbie to powerlifting and strength building, this app, while quite user friendly has terminologies I can’t seem to find elsewhere on the internet. The website for the app doesn’t have an intuitive guide as to what all these settings are.

    I am runner, aging with hurt knees and lower back. My coworkers recommended 531. Surprisingly, no pain (just soreness) in my knees and lower back. I’m am getting stronger. Great workout!!
  • Great App / Great Routine

    I’m really liking 5/3/1 as it makes lifting feasible on a tight schedule and is working great. It can be harder to track than many programs given all the changes to reps and weight that happen each week. This app has all the rules built in, even for thing like “Boring But Big”. It makes following the program super easy. It is also an intuitive app to use and works very well.

    Is better on android. This version doesnt let you save assistance exercises for some reason. Also on Android u can change the weight for the entire exercise not just that one set like on this app.

    Maybe I missed the fine print, but there is a separate charge to keep track of supplementals. Wha-? Why? Like, “We’ll track your squats, but if you wanna add some lunges, it’s gonna cost ya.” This is a basic part of the workout, not some “special” add-on. Geeez. I paid for the app; they should include everything for a normal workout. Feels pretty cheap.

    This is the best app when it comes to 5/3/1. Pay for the upgrades and you’ll be able customize your workouts to exactly what you want. There are so many options to help keep you on track.
  • Free version only good for a few weeks

    I though this app was ok for a free app but then after a few weeks you have to pay $5 to keep it going and it’s just not worth it.
