Keeping a workout journal: Anyone else do this...
I have always used a training book to moniter my progress in the gym. Up until recently a sample page in my log would look something like this...
Incline Barbell- 225x10
Now since we're no longer in the stone age I figured I would change my old ways. This is what my log looks like now...
Chest New lifts
Incline Barbell-225x10 225x10
*Not claiming a major discovery here or anything but just wondering how many others keep their training logs like this. I think its a good mental tool for beating lifts.

My workout log is the best way to motivate me. If I see that I did so many reps last week, I either try to lift more or get at least one more rep. This way I know that there is progression in my strength.

I see quite a few people at my gym that keep a log, but personally I don't need one because I can remember everything that I have done without writing it down.

I like to use Money Ledgers - lots of colums in a small hardcover binder. I don't always keep a record but when I do I always see great results cause I know where I can make progression... no one built a house without a plan.

I keep one for diet and another for my workout. Generally up date my workout diary at my desk and I'll review a previous workout prior to working out to know what to hit and at what weight. Saves me a lot of time in the gym.

I keep a workout log on my computer to keep track of my workouts. It has helped me to identify weak spots tons.
