Stronglifts: How to Backup Workouts (Android)

Your workouts are automatically backed up to our servers when you login with Apple, Google or Facebook. We do not offer an email login at this time.

Any workout you log while signed in is backed up to our servers. If you lose your phone, break it or switch to a new one, all your workouts will be back when you sign in with the same Apple, Google or Facebook account on the new device. We therefore recommend you sign in and stayed signed in the whole time.

Please note that workouts logged while signed out are not backed up to our servers. They're saved locally on your device. So if you lose or break it, you'll also lose all your workouts. We won't be able recover them since we never got them in the first place. You'll have to start from scratch. Sign in so this can't happen.

You can check if you're signed in like this:

  1. Select "Settings"

Google Fit Warning

Note that StrongLifts workouts are never pulled back from Google Fit to StrongLifts. We send them to Google Fit but never pull them back. Your workouts will be recovered from our own servers when you login inside StrongLIfts - settings - profile. Your workouts will never be recovered from Google Fit.

Updating Your Email 

Simply add the new email address to your existing facebook/google account. Then delete the email address that's going to expire. Since the facebook/google account remains, but only the email address associated with it changes, you won't lose any of your history or purchases. 

Here's how to update your email:

Deleting Your Account

You can delete your Stronglifts account like this:

  1. Open Stronglifts
  2. Go to settings - profile
  3. Tap delete account

This will delete everything we have from you - your workouts, settings, personal information, etc. Please note that it's not possible to recover your workouts after deleting your account. We are really deleting all the workouts from our servers.

After you delete your account, StrongLifts will start from scratch, as if using it for the first time.
