How to Use The Rest Timer (Android)

The built-in rest timer shows you how long it's been since your last set, and when to do your next set.

Enabling The Timer

To trigger the rest timer, tap any circle on the log workout screen. 

This means that whenever you complete a set, the rest-timer automatically starts for your next set. 

The timer is enabled by default so if you don't see it, it's probably disabled. Enable it in settings - timer - enable.

Rest Timer Notifications

You can set the timer notification like this:

  • Go to StronglIfts - settings - timer - make sure it's enabled.
  • Success timer: this is how long to rest after a successful set, where you completed all reps. Default is 3min.
  • Fail timer: this is how long to rest after a failed sets, where you didn't complete all reps. Default is 5min.
  • Ring/vibration: disable these if you don't want to hear any ringer/get vibrations when your rest time is up.
