    Just wanted to know if anyone has found a good weightlifting app? I'm looking for something that could replace the notebook I bring to record reps/sets/weight. There seems to be mostly apps for cardio.

    I did some searching today and couldn't find any free ones. I'd be willing to pay for one, but I wanted to get some reviews from this forum.

    I just pile on the weights and never record anything : )

    If it's heavy and hurts I'm good to go...

    I'm not aware of anything like that and it appears that there is nothing in the Market but cardio apps.

    Somebody may come along with some better info but as it stands now I am not aware of anything

    I use gymtechnik. It's not an app but it's free and tracks all your workouts online. You can build your own workouts and view your progress through the main site.

    Eh, when doing pyramid sets you really do need a way to record what weight(s) you were using last.

    I started a thread on exercise logging a couple of days ago and someone recommended Gymbook for weights.

    An app similar to a blank spread sheet, where you enter what exercise, what weight for the set, and how many reps.... simple, basic, all you need :) I'd like to see this too... even though I gave up the notepad years ago

    Gymbook looks pretty solid.

    I use an Excel spreadsheet in Documents To Go. 1 worksheet for each exercise. Rows for dates, columns for weight and reps-by-set. Nice and easy.

    I created the initial spreadsheet in Excel on my laptop and copied it to the sdcard rather than trying to type it all out on the droid.

    I attached a sample spreadsheet.

    Thats a good idea.
    Im trying to see if i can set up the same type of thing with the google docs spreadsheet.
    I tried WorkItOut - seems like a good concept but i couldnt figure out how to display a list of the data after entering.
    Havent decided if i want to pay for gymbook - wish there was a trial version.
    After all of the clicking it takes to enter data- Im wondering if its just easier/faster to use the old fashioned pen and mini-notebook....

    It should be standard for their to be a trial offer for every app. Just think how many more they'd sell.

    Perfect app for weight lifting

    I used to use JEFIT. It has a free version and a paid version which is only 4.99. It has pretty much everything you can ever think of for keeping records and scheduals. It even has more exercises that I could even think of, as well as telling you which part of the body they work out..

    I use an app called Strength. There's a free version with ads, and it explains how to do a bunch of different lifts and has videos of the right form. Best part is it's very easy to set up. It doesn't support every type of workout, though.
