    pen & paper.

    it sucks dropping a weight onto your smartphone. instant death. unless all you do is sit on a stationary bike, skip the electronics. it's also way faster to simply write "8 plates" with a pen than punching keys and hitting OK on a touch screen.

    Yeah...skip the apps. In fact, I skip the workouts, don't want to jeopardize my phone.No workouts means no weights, means no weights dropping on the phone.

    Heck, do the workouts with just a pen and paper, and don't you know somebody is going to spill their sports drink on my phone.

    I'll skip the whole thing.

    For those who care about their phone getting crushed accidentally, I agree. My solution though is to use a smartwatch or fitness tracker to track your exercise, heart rate, speed, etc.
