A simple workout log method

If you train physically, then you likely care about your progress in a given modality. For those who track their training, I haven’t found a great method for tracking weight training.

I’m sure there will be a future device that can be worn to track reps, cadence, rest period, weights used and with what exercise. If it exists, tell me. I will buy it. Maybe I’ll make it.

Anyway, I’ve tried spreadsheets, log books, and apps. They all are cumbersome. The best method I have found so far is a 3×5 notecard.

On one side, I write my workout for the next 6 or 12 week cycle.


On the back, I track what I did.


That’s it. Super simple. Super easy. Low overhead.
