make tired

the conditioning workout generator for iOS

make tired is an iPhone and iPad app that creates short, intense workouts to make you tired after strength training.

Use the app after your regular strength training to generate a random cardio-conditioning workout. Workouts range from 5 to 20 minutes. Use make tired alongside strength programs like 5/3/1 and GreySkull LP to get the most out of your training.

The workouts scale to your ability level and include exercise descriptions. You can toggle the basic equipment, including a pull-up bar, dip bars, a place to run, and dumbbells. The workouts in the app are not appropriate for people who are unable to hang from a pull-up bar for at least fifteen seconds.

make tired was built by Dave Liepmann in ClojureScript using Cordova.
