You need OpenOffice or LibreOffice to use this template.
Microsoft Excel version coming soon...

Is there a nice, easy to use spreadsheet out there, or alternatively an Android app that's also nice and easy to use, that comes with the actual, official Simplest Strength Template (and possibly others)?

I don't like the alterations made to the template, but otherwise, this spreadsheet looks great.

No offence intended. Just looking for something a bit different.

edit: I know you can change the names of things, but there aren't enough extra lifts there, in the one you've uploaded, to actually do SST with (even with names changed).

No offense taken..
Looking back at the book, it actually is more of a periodization/ss mix than just SS.
If I remember correctly, StrongLifts has a good 5/3/1 template available.

Really good post, great routine that I have had some good results with. Wish the book would have been around 20 years ago.
