Anybody used the Starting Strength app?
I started the starting strength workout last year around this time but had to stop due to hip pain and with the program sort of being a squat dominate it made it worse.

I bought the book off amazon and I gotta say, this thing is full of valuable information. It really goes into depth of form, why that form is important, and the joints and muscles involved in each movement. I spent a lot of time focusing on form with lighter weight before getting back into workout and I have noticed a massive difference. Biggest one being = no hip pain.

I downloaded the app and have started the workout again this week. I really enjoy it. I can tell my form is better just by how the workouts feel and how I feel after. I have also videoed myself which is a HUGE help.

Anybody else using this or used it in the past? It has videos of each of the 5 main workouts and helps compare to your form if you are filming yourself like I am.

re: Anybody used the Starting Strength app?
Yes, it's good but I have had bug issues on Android. It keeps track of weights and tells you what to warm-up with and how long to rest. Great app, but for $10 there are free apps (SL5x5) that basically do the same thing.

Like you, I enjoy it, no real complaints, there are just a ton of free apps as well.
