What are the current programs being offered on the app?
I would like to subscribe but want to wait until I see a program on the app that catches my interest.
We will have another update/release ready next week and as Bill noted you can download the app and review the practices and programs during the 7-day trial. And even if you do not subscribe you can keep the free content version of the app.
I saw the free trial option thanks.
I prefer to know what is on the app before I download an app even if it is a free trial.

Just like a table of contents in a book. So I know if that book is of interest to me or not.

For example. I have very little interest in kettlebell programs and bodyweight programs personally. So if most of the programs on the app are slanted towards that I would prefer not to bother with the app.

Thanks for the responses though.
A new Program and a new Practice have been released on the app—if you are a subscriber did you get the notification on the App?
does the app have access to the articles and SF forum?
We have been looking into giving an "app" that you can use to access the forum. As I understand things at the moment, this ability exists in principle but is only available on certain platforms and with certain browsers. We'll keep this on our to-do list and update everyone when we know more. We have tested this but determined it's not ready for prime time just yet, and what might need to change to make this work better is largely up to the operating system and browser creators, not us.

To be honest, I have tried the app twice in different points of launch. Once when it has first come out and second maybe about a year ago. I love the ”IDEA” of this app but it has a lot of kinks that needs to be worked on. I don’t remember why i canceled the subscription but I can go back on, try it again and keep a log on this time of things that need to be possibly worked on. My biggest problem with the app (from what I can remember) was the calendar. But again I can give it a try and tell you exactly what was up with it.
StrongFirst Training App update

The calendar function has been improved so you can now schedule an entire program through the calendar (say an 8-week program) and make adjustments as needed.

You will also receive session reminders on the dashboard.

Die roll programs—There are die roll programs like Powertrain on the app where you randomize the daily practice via an automated die roll.
And we are working on automated die roll programming.

Timer—the timer has been updated and improved so you can set work:rest times, number of sequences, etc.
(I used it on vacation and really liked it)

More programs and functions being added all the time....

For those of you using the Die Roll feature—feedback?
How are you liking it?
@ethanmile, welcome to the StrongFirst forum.

Someone will correct me if necessary, but I believe you can try the app for free and you'll have access to some things, and there are also paid options.

Ah, see this page, please:

which says it's free for 7 days then $20/month after that.

There is a free version of the app you can continue to use after the trial period or you can continue with the premuim subscription.

StrongFirst Training App Powertrain Program Feedback

How a roll of the die increased my Military Press by 100%?

"I recently did 12 weeks of the Powertrain program from the app, with MP and GSQ/SW, that is, and it helped me to more than double my previous 1RM (0L/1R to 2L/2R).

At first, I started the program just as a filler after doing Strong! and The Giant for about nine months, but I really fell in love with it.

I really enjoyed the program and would love to stay at it for a long time, with increasing weight, of course."
