    Default Found a bug or something that's not quite right? Post it here.

    • phoenix arizona seminar date
    • texas seminar date
    If you've found a bug or something that's not quite right please post it in here. If you could use the following template it'll make it a lot easier for me to find and fix it:

    1. Platform (eg iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy)
    2. Operating System (eg iOS 8.4, Android 4.2)
    3. What is the bug? Please be as detailed as possible.
    (Both of these things dont happen but for example
    * The app crashes when I click the Training Forum button
    * Nothing happens when I click the Set 2 button on the Todays Training Screen.

    Thanks

    1. LG G4
    2. Android 5.1
    3. I don’t know if this is a bug or not, but I noticed that when I try to input my older workouts, I don’t have the option of selecting power clean. It is as if the app is assuming that any workout before today's date assumes it is part of the first two workouts ever where you do deadlift twice in a row. From Sep 9th and on I get the power clean option, but not before. Press and bench alternate, though. I have power clean checked for workout B, and I said that I already started the program.

    Hi,

    Moto G
    Android 5.0.2

    The bugs/quirks I've found so far:
    1. You can add future dated training sessions in training history.
    2. Under Settings/Update Settings, if you exit the menu with the back arrow, the next time you come in menu Settings, you'll be immediately taken to Update Settings, and have to go through it before you can chose other options like App Feedback etc.
    3. Training support just gives a blank screen with a left arrow in bottom left corner.
    4. Newsletter signup has the same symptom as bug 3.
    5. You cannot delete the first training session in Training History. Allows to delete all other training sessions though. (Once a training session added, you cannot go back to a state where no sessions are in the history.)
    6. Under Today's training when opening a training video for example for the squat, the youtube window that opens up doesn't fit to the screen: when turning the phone sideways, only the video window's top is seen, and have to swipe the screen to fully position it into view.
    7. In Progress menu the strength diagram is curved, eg when going from 140kg to 142.5kg in the squat, the line between the two is curved upwards, exceeding 150kg somewhere between the two workouts. This is only visible if the workout preceding the 140kg workout was significantly less, for example 20kg, but is even visible with 100kg. While this is an unlikely scenario in normal intended use, there seems to be a drawing algorithm that rounds off the edges in the diagram, resulting in these false readings.

    BR,
    Robert

    I sent an email to support through the app and it came back as undeliverable. I re-sent adding an "m" to the ".co" at the end. It hasn't come back yet, so I guess that was the problem.

    Just curious if this app will work if one is using the Texas Method or is it designed only for the beginning Starting Strength Program? Thanks!

    In "Today's Training", open video to show demonstration for any exercise. Video opens. Can't get back to app. Have to close the app and reopen.

    Per Betsy in the ideas thread: you cannot currently record a workout (such as OHP) with less than 45 lbs. I personally know women that had to start out with an empty womens bar (< 45 lbs) on OHP.

    Bryan - there's no TM support at the moment.

    A couple of things I've noticed so far:

    1) I can't get the Instructional Videos to play
    2) In the Training Instructions section the Android system back button doesn't work and the app's back button must be used.

    Ah, this is probably a more appropriate place to post my concern than that main Q&A section.

    platform: iPhone 6+

    Just bought the App, first workout will be tomorrow. Before starting, I was hoping to enter my pre-existing training history but fresh out of the box, the when I tap "Training History" I get the message:
    This is a history of all your training. Because you've just started there's nothing to see here, so read the Training Instructions, check out the Training Videos and to begin training click Todays Training.

    After you've trained for a few sessions you can come back here and view your history.

    {OK}
    Upon tapping {OK} I end up back at the home screen. I'm sure later after I've gotten a few workouts into the app, I'll be able to enter my pre-existing training history, but it seems inappropriate to me that I'm being gatekept from doing it now.

    Great first version! Nice job on getting out a nice quality first release. I do this stuff for a living, and I know it's harder than it looks!

    Two things:
    1. On the progress graph, the bench and overhead press have their labels reversed. My bench numbers are labeled as press, and vice versa.
    2. I added some past workouts to build a history. When doing so, it seems to be ignoring the setting that I do power cleans. This might be because I originally said I didn't, but later changed it. When adding today's workout, it behaved correctly.
