Free vs Pro (Android)
You can do the full StrongLifts 5x5 program for free. But you can unlock Pro to get even better results. Here's the difference between Free and Pro.
- Full StrongLifts 5x5 basic training program - workout A/B
- Rest timer, increments, deload, graphs, calendar, etc
StrongLifts Pro gives you access to several features to save you time, help you progress, and get even better results.
- Warmup sets: tap the "warmup" tab on the log workout screen to see the sets/reps/weight to warmup with.
- Assistance work: add assistance exercise to StrongLifts 5x5 from settings - workout - tap the + button.
- Custom assistance: create any assistance exercise you want from settings - workout - tap the + button and then tap the + button again.
- Plate calculator: tap the weight on log workout screen to see how much to add on each side of the bar. You can set your available bar and plates by going to menu -settings - equipment.
- 3x5/3x3/1x3: switch to different rep ranges when you're stuck with 5x5. The app will tell you when or you can manually switch in settings - workout - tap one of the main exercises - sets and reps.
- Google Fit: sync workouts/body-weight with Google Fit, get estimated calories burned and total workout time
- Locked screen notifications: log sets straight from the notifications without unlocking your phone. Log a new workout and tap the first set to see the notification. Pull it down to see the buttons to log sets.
- Export to csv: you can do this in the settings - export.
Please note that creating this app cost money. I have to pay developers, designers, support, all kinds of services. I don't want to put ads in the app because I hate ads. I also don't want sell your data to third parties. I just sell Pro - it keeps the app clean, keeps your data private, and keeps us independent.
In fact, many people unlock Pro because they like StrongLifts, like what we do, and want to support us so we can continue improve the app.
Cost of Pro
The price of StrongLifts Pro depends on your location, currency and taxes. But the yearly fee is about the same as what you'd pay for one small tube of whey protein. To see the exact price, go to settings - account - upgrade (or go here)
StrongLifts Pro can be purchased for three months or yearly. Payment will be charged to your Google Play account at confirmation of purchase. Subscriptions automatically renew at the end of the period, for the same price. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time up until 24-hours before the end of the subscription period in your Account Settings. When you cancel the auto-renewal, access to the Pro features will not expire immediately, you will have access until the end of the current payment period.
