Do you always find yourself struggling to remember what you did your last workout session or what you had planned to do for your current training session? If so then you need to take the time to start documenting your workouts and tracking your progress. There are actually a couple of interesting ways to do this. I have included 2 methods in the following article.
1. The Journal: Now this may sound like the most common, but when I say journal I don’t solely mean the old fashioned little booklet that you can carry around in your back pocket to and from the gym. This is ok to use, but I am referencing a somewhat more modern style of journal. In today’s crazy world of busy moms and dads chasing the almighty dollar and juggling a handful of kids around there seems to always be a since of urgency. Often times this urgency can breed a state of “forgetfulness.” People, whether they like it or not, need to be reminded of certain things. This is where your awesome PC, laptop, or business computer can come in handy. Set up a journal of your workouts with your strength and fitness regimen on the calendar. Use the calendar to set yourself up email alerts on a regular basis reminding you of the particular exercises and drills you need to accomplish from week to week. You see by doing this on a calendar you are not only logging your past workouts, but are pushing yourself to progress to all of the future workouts. Plus you won’t forget your workouts or lose track of them during times of urgency!
2. The Video: Now this is another great method to utilize in this modern era of technology. If you want to really get motivated then video a particular workout that you feel you are good at. Yes, I said a workout that you feel you are good at. You may be surprised at how far behind you really are, or you may be enthused about how far ahead you look! Either way you are getting major feedback on your strength and fitness training program. You can also use this tool to critique your form and technique on more advanced lifts. This is a great way to keep you motivated and to log a concrete visual measure of your ability!
