    I need an app where I can custom define exercises in a workout, with sets and reps. Do the exercise and enter the weight I actually lifted + the number of reps I could do for that set, and track that progress over time (so I can see how much I lifted last time, and how many reps I did last time)

    Ideally, it would also have a workout timer and rest interval timer.

    Anyone know if one like this exists?

    I used iFitness when I worked out. I've also heard people say Gym Buddy works well.

    ETA: iFitness looks like it has the things you want.

    Wow! I remember checking both of these out early on, and they both needed work. I always forget that apps keep getting better and better.

    Thanks! I bought both of these and either one perfectly suits my needs, I think I like Gym Buddy better.

    try training peaks

    I use, which has a lot of options. Not sure if it will give you everything you're looking for, but it may.

    Gym buddy was the winner for me. It is perfect for what I was looking for.

    Yeah, I had checked this and ifitness out early after the first iPod touch released; they were both crap at the time. Now gymbuddy fits my work(out)flow perfectly.

    I've got to remember to check for updates on apps that showed promise but werent quite right.
