Hard to use
This app is useful in that it shows small but anatomically accurate animations of exercises and allows you to build and track your progress doing them. However, everything is too tiny, it cuts off your music, and it randomly restarts, forgetting your progress. Oh and it's not easy to change your sets. Basically, good idea, poor execution. But, because I bought it and because it's apparently on sale at $1.99, suggesting that it is envisioned to be top quality, I have hope that the next version will fix all of these issues. If not, I will give it one star and spread the word not to get it.

Perfect for my needs
I had recently hired a trainer to design a series of workouts for me. They have a nice progression, but sometimes I want to add exercises to strengthen a particular area, rehab a muscle group, or just add some variety. iMuscle is just what the doctor ordered. I also own a number of exercise bands and I was please to see how I could put them to better use. Buy it!!!

A $2 Personal Trainer
Whether you just started working out or have been for years, this is great for anybody who is serious about strength training, building or simply toning their muscles. This is just as useful as the few books I own, but the animation surpasses any still image.

Close, but not there yet.
I have been looking for an app like this ever since iFitness got pulled. This particular type of app (workout logging) is very underrepresented in the app store. When I saw this as the featured app of the week, I figured it was worth the $2 if Apple liked it that much. First of all, I understand this app is a port of the same app for iPad. However, it requires some updating to make it a full-fledged iPhone app. The graphics need to be updated to take full advantage of the Retina Display of the iPhone 4. Also, the name of the app as displayed on the phone should be shortened to "iMuscle" to avoid the annoying ellipsis shown on the home screen. The app also needs a user interface update. On the larger screen of the iPad, the buttons might not be so small, but on the 3.5 inch screen of an iPhone, they are downright tiny and make navigation a pain. The iPhone version of this app needs an interface that takes advantage of its unique form factor. As far as features go, having the ability to add exercises while in the middle of a workout would be nice. Everyone who goes to the gym knows that sometimes you have to improvise while doing a workout, but you obviously don't want to permanently edit your programmed routines. Allowing for adding and removing sets for a workout is another feature that is desperately needed. I do sets of 3, 4 and 5 on a weekly rotation and don't want to create new workouts for each different number of sets. Like I said earlier, this is a good start. The app has great potential, but desperately needs a graphics and UI overhaul as well as a few new features.

I'm blown away with the flawless graphics, navigation and instructional support of this app. I can't imagine how amazing the pro version is. Now when my physical therapist talks about muscle groups and exercises I can literally see 3d details of the muscles and watch animations of proper form AND track custom workouts. $1.99? That's almost free.

Good app but...
It tends to crash a lot and there should be a way to activate a workout in any order not just the order they were entered! It's very difficult to choose the workout your on because it goes in the order the workouts were entered. This would be good except for the fact that I don't always do the same exercises in order- please make changes!
