Beta Testing StrongLifts v3 on Android

We've created a totally new app for Android - StrongLifts v3!

Design and features are the same as before, but there's a lot more workout customization.

Here's what's new:

  • NEW: fully customize workout A/B (any sets/reps, any exercises, any exercise order)
  • NEW: create extra workouts C/D/E/F (home - edit)
  • NEW: graphs for ALL exercises (incl assistance exercises)
  • NEW: graphs for TOTAL (sq+bp+dl) 
  • NEW: view graphs by 30m, 3m, 6m, 1y, 2y, or all
  • NEW: set increment frequency (ex: add 2.5kg every 3 workouts)
  • NEW: set deload amount and frequency (ex: deload 20% after 1 fail)
  • NEW: set workout schedules (home - edit)
  • NEW: warmup for all exercises
  • NEW: +100 exercises to pick from
  • NEW: +100 exercise videos with instructions
  • NEW: dark mode
  • NEW: Pro lifetime option (pay once, no subcription)

v3 is currently in BETA. The code is stable, main features are working, and we've already fixed the main issues StrongLifters reported.

If you're interested in beta-testing v3, follow the instructions below

WARNING

  • Beta is for tech-savvy users only. 
  • v3 is stable at this point, and works better than v2 live. We're close to releasing it live.
  • Your purchase will continue to work on the beta. If your purchase is missing, recover it in settings - subscriptions
  • You won't lose any data when you install the beta. If you're missing data, contact us (we have backups)
  • Do not use v3 then go back to v2 - both apps use different servers. Any workout logged no v3 will not show when you go back to v2. And several features in v3 are not available on v2 (like workout customization). So stick with v3 and contact us if you have issues.

How to Install the BETA
