What should be recorded in my workout journal

Keeping Your Training Journal As for recording the workout details, you need to capture the information that will provide valuable insights into your performance. After each set, record the exercise name, the amount of weight lifted, the number reps completed and how you felt.

Should I keep a workout log?

It will help you organize and save information about your exercise routine so you can work toward a specific goal. For example, if you’re training for a marathon, keeping a log can help you track how you run under various weather conditions or when you’re following a special diet.

Should you write down your workouts?

(Obviously writing down your workouts doesn’t actually make you stronger, but progressive overload does.) Progressive overload is the gradual increase of stress placed on the body during exercise training (while maintaining good alignment and movement patterns).

Why is it important to record your workouts?

By keeping track of your workouts, you will be able to see what has worked best for you and what needs improvement. It will also help segment each area for analysis. This way you can maintain consistent progress across your entire body and muscle groups.
