This is an app for all you bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts, with a wide range of features enabling you to update your Bodybuilding.com profile, photos, and stats, as well as containing a vast database of exercises and loads of useful information to help you on your path to attaining the ultimate physique.
Regular visitors to Bodybuilding.com will definitely want to get this app; there is a great social aspect to this app whereby you can access your friends’ BodySpaces and exchange messages and such, and the exercise database includes tons of invaluable tidbits to help you perform your workouts optimally.
If you don’t already have an existing account with Bodybuilding.com, you’ll have to register for one in order to use this app; registration is free and takes about 30 seconds.
Once you’re logged in, there’s a wonderfully clear menu which will help you navigate between the various features, of which there are loads! This is your chance to start interacting with your BodySpace friends in a mobile format, and you can also comment on people’s profiles, photo galleries, and progress pictures to share some all-important encouragement to let your buddies know they’re on the right track.
This obviously works both ways, so you can enter your own information, including your weight, height, body fat percentage, and individual body part measurements. Having this information available online in a public arena definitely provides a massive amount of accountability because it will become apparent very quickly if you’re not putting the work in.
What’s more, you can access the Bodybuilding.com forums and hopefully engage in some enlightening discussions about training, nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle in general –although the conversation doesn’t always go that way, so you’ve been warned!
There are almost five million Bodybuilding.com users worldwide so you’ll never be short of people to ask for advice or to exchange feedback with.

One More Rep
My favorite part of this app is definitely the exercise library, and it’s funny because there are so many apps out there which are pretty much focused on this one feature alone while Bodybuilding.com modestly includes it amidst a whole bunch of other great content.
I’ve used the instructional elements of this app to improve my squat and deadlift technique, greatly minimizing my nagging lower back pain, and the forums are great for finding answers to any questions you might have about your training and nutrition.
All in all, this is a great app for the more fitness-minded amongst you, and highly recommended.
