Update 1.1.0

April 10, 2023

Are you curious how the volume of work you do in the weight room builds up over time? Do you ever struggle to get to the gym and need that little boost of motivation to get out the door? In our biggest update yet, we added a variety of new features to improve performance tracking and workout accountability. Check out the features below and learn how to get the most out of the Peak Strength app!
Tonnage Badges
Track your progress building strength with our new tonnage tracking and badges. You will see how many tons you’ve lifted each workout and earn badges as you reach milestones over time. Tonnage is a great way to track your overall progress by monitoring the total amount of “work” performed in the app. Think about it as adding the weight you’ve lifted from every rep of every set for every exercise during your workout.
Workout Streaks and Total Workouts Completed
Staying accountable to training consistently is one of the hardest things athletes struggle with, and yet it is one of the most significant determinants of how fast you will improve. We added streak tracking to show you how many workouts you’ve completed without missing a workout to help keep you on track to reach your goals.

*Note that missed workouts only count after a week ends, so you can still temporarily skip a workout as long as you complete it by the end of the week.
Profile Settings Update
In addition to your estimated 1-rep max on your profile settings screen, you can see your current tonnage badge and progress towards the next, your current workout streak, and your total workouts completed.
Workout Overview
After completing a workout, you will now see an overview of what you accomplished, including:
  • Your current tonnage badge and progress toward the next
  • The total amount of weight you lifted in today's workout
  • The duration of your workout
  • Your current workout streak
  • Your total workouts completed
  • A summary of your workout, including the exercises performed, their sets, reps, the highest weight performed on that exercise, and a notification if you hit a new est. 1RM on the exercise

Personal Best Notifications
After hitting a new estimated 1-rep max on an exercise, you will receive a notification and congratulations!

Equipment recommendations and purchase links
You can now check your equipment list for pieces we suggest getting access to and adding to your program, including the equipment we offer from our store

Performance and Interface improvements
  • The recommended dumbbell weight has been clarified, now displaying as, for example: “40 pounds each side”
  • Major performance improvements significantly reducing the amount of crashes on Apple and Android
  • Increased processing speed on the "Log Set" button
  • Error message when inputting a value above 2 times the user est. 1RM. Values can always be entered if 200lbs or lower, and can never exceed 1200lbs

  • Support for push notifications

Update 1.0.16

January 10, 2023

Peak Strength has been live for only a few months, and we have been getting a ton of positive feedback from our users, and also some fantastic suggestions on how to improve the app. We have very big plans for the continued development of the app, and your feedback is extremely valuable for us to mold Peak Strength into the best strength training app possible for you. To provide us with more feedback, you can fill out the survey linked here.

In update v our primary goal was addressing some of the biggest “quality of life” improvements requested by our users. Making Peak Strength easy to use was one of our primary goals from the very beginning, and your continued feedback has helped us hone in on that goal with this update. We will be adding some bigger features in our next update, so stay tuned, but for now, check out the list of updates added to Peak Strength!

Additional work at the end of the week
Prior to this update, when all workouts for the week were finished, there was no further action you could take in the app until the start of the next week. After finishing the last workout of the week, an option to do an additional workout is now available. You may add up to 5 workouts in a week, and after completing your 5th workout, mobility will be available outside of the workout.
Set and change one rep max for any exercise
After entering your initial maxes for the bench, squat, and clean when first signing up, the app attempts to estimate what your max is for related exercises. The app will also adjust your current maxes based on how you perform in the workout. Every person is different, and sometimes you would prefer to set your max yourself instead of letting the app estimate it for you. Now you can! By clicking on the “Exercise History” tab of an exercise, you can either create a new one rep max or change your one rep max. You can also change your primary exercise one rep maxes by tapping the name of the exercise on the settings screen.

Note that your suggested weights will not change if you already started the workout, but you can just make the adjustment to the weight suggestion in the workout, change your one rep max, and the change will be saved for the next time you perform that exercise.
Information on periodization phases
Periodization is a major aspect of Peak Strength as it dictates the volume, intensity, and exercise variation in your workouts leading up to your peak date. By tapping the graph on the home screen, you can now view additional information on the phase of periodization you are on. You will also get notifications in the app when transitioning into a new phase.

Set your program start date
When creating your program, you may now set the date that you would like to start program. Your workouts will only be available at the beginning of the week of your start date.

Additional Changes
  • Improved the visibility of the skip to workout button when previewing future workouts.
  • When removing dumbbells and barbells from the user’s equipment list, they will be notified if they would like to rebuild their program to improve the quality of their workouts. The same occurs when adding either dumbbells or barbells back into their equipment list.
  • When adding equipment, you will have the option rebuilding unstarted workouts with the new equipment being considered.
  • Starting a workout in the middle of the week will suggest that you start the correct workout, allowing you to start the next week at Day 1 without having just performed that workout.
  • Added the ability to reactive a finished workout.
  • Improved functionality of the log set button.
  • Bug fixes to reduce crashing rate.
