Tracking your workouts


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Tracking your workouts within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I am just wondering how many of you do this. I am the only one during my w/o's that I see carrying around a notebook and writing everything down that I do, and I am just wondering how many of you do it. I thought that tracking w/o's would be more of a common thing, but maybe not?? Thanks for any input! :) PinkPanther

    Your gym must be a real creampuff palace.LOL Besides a couple of other people I never notice anyone else at my gym tracking their workouts as well. Not only does it motivate me, but it's also nice to look back in your log and see the progress you've made.

    I used to wait until I got home and then tracked my workouts in an Excel spreadsheet I put together. That got to be a hassle, so I walk around with the notebook now. I've noticed more people at the gym doing it.

    Re: Tracking your workouts

    Well, I'm glad to know that others do this, too! I think I would forget what I had planned out if I just went in there with it in my head. I also do like to be able to look back and see how I have progressed. I was just looking back to day one of starting and it is amazing at how little weight I was doing! Funny...

    Re: Tracking your workouts

    I have always used a notebook. I recently decided to make a template on an excel shee for my current program. this way, every exercise is already written down as well as the day and date. All I have to do is print it out and write in the reps and weight ranges I hit. Once I get a good handle on what type of weight I am pulling with each exercise, I will be able to type that into the template also. Now instead of a notebook, all I have is a small sheet of paper to carry around.

    That is a good idea, too. Maybe I will work on one of those...

    it's definitely easier than carrying around a big ass notebook and will make it easier to find past workouts, especially if you bind those sheets when you are done with them. eventually I would like to have a computer program-based tracking system, but that will have to wait. For now I need to write things down as they happen.

    Re: Tracking your workouts

    So, you just print out a blank sheet, write in what you do, and then put it in a binder? I really like that idea. It seems like my notebook gets all ratted up after so many uses...Thanks for the input! I am going to make one of these for myself!!
