Share Article

Biomech publishes squats app that operates hands-free during the entire workout.

Word is hitting the streets hard today about the release of "Street Workout Squats" for iPhone, the world's first – and only – app that guides with the voice of a virtual personal trainer while Street Workout athletes pump up their volume performing the app's bodyweight calisthenic squat exercise routines.

The Street Workout movement is currently sweeping the globe and on August 3rd the third annual World Street Workout Championship will be held in Riga, Latvia. The event has been a huge success, and the World Street Workout and Calisthenics Federation (WSWCF) is currently planning the 2013 launch of an annual Street Workout World Cup Series to be hosted in the Germany, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, and the U.S., among others.

Accessing the phone's built-in accelerometer, Street Workout Squats automatically keeps track of reps, sets and other workout data hands-free as the phone stays in sweatpants' or shorts' pocket during the entire workout. A countdown timer tracks recovery time between sets, so there's no more need to keep checking the clock!

The Street Workout Squats app also includes several easy-to-follow daily training routines in three levels of difficulty and claims that, if followed, within two months the user will be able to perform 200 calisthenic squats in a single routine.

Future updates to the app are already in development and will expand Street Workout Squats into the next-generation iPhone fitness app that will automatically recognize, keep track of and train for a wide array of bodyweight calisthenics-based exercises such as Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, Dips – and many others – routines that numerous professional personal trainers recommend as the most rigorous, effective and time-efficient workout methods available – without requiring any expensive equipment or gym membership.

Street Workout Squats was created by Ukrainian co-developers Nikolay Pavlov and Sergey Shiyan, founders of Biomech, Inc. based in Campbell, California.
