    Today I woke up and found an app on the Android Market for my G1. Looked to be the perfect app for my workouts. It's called WorkItOut -- odd coincidence because that was the file name for my excel file tracking my workouts for a long time.

    Well, I tried WorkItOut and it ended up having this odd glitch that synchronizes workouts. Like I put together my Workout for Bicep Day and my Workout for Tricep Day and it kept overriding the exercises for one day with the ones from the other day. I entered the exercises for Bicep Day and they got copied to Tricep Day -- replacing the ones already there. So I tried to fix Tricep Day and all of those exercises got copied to Bicep Day, replacing the exisiting exercises. I tried deleting a day and recreating it, no dice. Same problem, won't let those two days labeled "2" and "3" keep their individual lineups. So I uninstalled. I was looking at the comments section to see what other people thought and someone wrote "please support Gyminee". So I googled it.

    Gyminee is a workout/food/nutrition/social networking website. There's even a mobile version(for iPhone) that works on the G1. So I set up everything in Gyminee on my PC, then logged in with my G1 and ta-daa! Exactly what I want! And when I use the Steel browser instead of the Android Default Browser, it comes with a virtual keyboard to tide me over until Android releases that in the update planned for first quarter of 2009.

    This is great. I've been using my old T-Mobile Wing, because my workout tracking has been done with an excel sheet. I've been waiting for an App, or a Google Docs Mobile Update, or something to support Excel editing on the G1, and now I don't have to! Thought I'd pass this along to all the workout folks here.

    This is just an awesome site. You don't need an app unless you don't have a data connection in your gym. I'm loving this so far. The tracking is spectacular.

    WorkItOut 1.1 has been released (hopefully bug free), check out www.workitout.mobi for details. Gotta admit gyminee has a good thing going for itself. We were just trying to code something that fits our needs and thought we'd share it with everyone. Thanks to the users for their support and suggestions.

    Hi! Great timing for your post, i was just looking for a bodybuilding app. Found some mediocre ones out there but yours looks the best by far so far, thanks a lot!

    I've only just started playing around with it so admittedly i haven't explored it too much, but from what i've seen of it so far it doesn't seem to have an export (eg to sd) feature. Am i mistaken? If not, are there any plans to implement one?

    Also, is there any way to convert input from lbs to kg? (in -> cm? .. I'm good 'ol metric) Suppose it won't make too much difference, as the unit won't actually be used for anything.
