Stronglifts: How To Replace Exercises In Your Workout (iPhone)

If you can't or don't want to do one of the exercises in your workout, you can easily replace it like this:

  1. From the home screen, tap "start workout"
  2. Tap the exercise you want to replace
  3. Tap "replace"

For the main lifts like Squat, Bench, Deadlift, Stronglifts will recommend a list of alternative exercises that will help you get similar results. This is helpful if you have some ache or pain preventing you from doing the main lifts. You may for example find that the Bench Press causes shoulder pain but Close Grip Bench Press does not.

If you're looking to do a different exercise than the ones Stronglifts suggests...

  1. Tap the "x" button to clear the filter.
  2. Use the search button to find the exercise you're looking for.
  3. If you can't find what you're looking for, tap "Create" to add your exercise to the list.
