Ray Lewis Unveils RL52 App

I am a workout freak.  I genuinely get upset if I hit the gym less than 6 days a week, and most weeks, I don’t skip a day.  One problem I have is that I find I get bored doing the same routine over and over again.  Over the years, I have constantly changed the muscle groups that I work out together and I have even experimented with my own version of the 300 Workout.  Last week, something new was brought to my attention, and I had to try it out for myself.

Ashley De Walt of FusionSports introduced me to a new iPhone/iTouch/iPad app called, The Official Ray Lewis Workout (RL52).  I do not have an iPhone or an iPad (yet), and I actually acquired my first iTouch only a few months ago.  Besides consuming my day playing Words With Friends (my username is “heitner”), I really love the device.  I had been looking for some good apps to add to my collection, which made Ashley’s email catch my attention (in addition to the fact that I am a workout freak).

I finally got around to trying the RL52 app yesterday.  While the app has an options to check out videos of Ray Lewis and his Twitter stream, I am most interested in viewing his various workouts and trying to replicate them (albeit with lower weights).  The app has four workout options – Brute Strength, Explosive Power, Extreme Endurance, and Rebound Flexibility.  I started with Brute Strength, and more specifically, the Arm Strength routine.  I like the fact that WiFi access is not necessary to go through the routines, unless you want to be able to watch Ray Lewis give a tutorial of each exercise (which is pretty cool, so you may want to check out the videos before you leave to the gym – if your gym doesn’t have WiFi access).  I also like the Rest Timer and that it is very easy to track the number of reps and the weight used for each set.  At the end of the workout, the app wraps up your entire workout in an easy-to-read log, which you can share with your friends.

I will probably split up a 3 day workout into Upper Body, Lower Body, and Arm Strength, with the 4th day set aside for cardio and abs.  The app has 3 different Upper Body programs, 2 Lower Body programs, and 1 Arm Strength program.  There are 24 different programs in the entire app.

The app’s cost is $4.99 in the iTunes App store, but you can download it at raylewis52.com.  If you are a workout freak like me and are in need of a switch from your current routine, the $4.99 is probably worth it.
