Stronglifts: How to Change Exercise Weight (iPhone)


When recording weights for your workouts, it's important to note that all weights indicated include the weight of the bar itself, as it is lifted during the exercise. For instance, if you see a notation like 100kg/220lb, this means there's a 20kg/45lb bar, with 40kg/87.5lb on each side.

To view the weight distribution on each side of the bar in your workout log, simply tap on the weight listed. For access to our plate calculator feature, which helps you determine which plates to add and how much weight to adjust, consider upgrading to StrongLifts Pro.

If you have prior training experience, it's advisable to commence your workout with approximately 50% of the maximum weight you can handle for 5 repetitions. Starting too heavy can lead to potential setbacks, so it's crucial to avoid this mistake.
