I'm wondering if there's a business case for an easy to use, intuitive app that tracks lifts so you don't have to use a spreadsheet, and can tell you your progress over the past couple weeks/months, have a goal tab that graphically shows where you are in relation to your goals and maybe even be shareable among different people, I don't know. I'd throw food in there too but I have no idea how to develop a database like MFP did.

Strong is a pretty good app that I've been using since September. My old app was great, basically a notebook that remembered the name of your exercises, but it was no longer supported with IOS 7. Strong takes a little thought up front to set it up, but it has worked for me doing a 3 day split.

Also, picked up two pairs of Lululemon Kung Fu pants, they are great and well worth $98 in my humble opinion.

MFP database is user generated, which would make it easy to build and hard to ensure quality. Hell you could even steal their data peepwall[1].gif Trade offs. I've thought about this as well but have put (almost) zero effort towards making it happen... Not sure you could monetize it effectively anyways, since most people will gravitate towards the free aps... of course those have ads... so yea you could do something with that, but it would have to clearly be better than current options.

not if we do.

Lol. I'll come for sure.
You want to lift on bench day (sat) or deadlift and squat day (sun)? Alternatively, we could just max out all three lifts in one session to test our totals and move some heavier weights icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Now that I think of it, I've never gone for a true max in any of the lifts or even attempted to do them all in one day

Maybe Sunday, because Saturday is my last deload day? Are you a member at physical? If not as long as you bring your HKID/passport they will let you try it out. We could go in TST or Shatin, IDM. Send me a whatsapp and we'll set it up.
post #36459 of 46074
Sunday it is, but I can only meet from afternoon/mid day and onwards.
Shatin is easiest for me since that's where the Physical gym I'm a member of is. It's also closest to school and I have a ton of work to do during the day. Lots of nice eats in Shatin too for dat PWO bulking meal.

I'll send you a whatsapp

What gym fees do you guys pay?
post #36461 of 46074

There's some weird membership annual fee of like 48$ and the 2 year price was $25 a month - so its basically $30

 

I can get out of the contract if I prove that I have moved over 50 miles from current address

 

Can get into a chain of 10 Golds and 2 other "Club Fitness" across Western MA and northern CT.

It's a business. They exist to make money. Not sure what you're expecting.
post #36464 of 46074

I'd have no issues paying monthly if their services matched the expectations of paying $80 a month.
