Fitness Tip: Staying on track
June 19, 2015
It is important to keep track of your workouts. Maintaining a daily or weekly log of your workouts helps you ensure that you are progressing toward your fitness goals and keeping your body challenged. You will want to record such things as frequency, duration and intensity of your exercise.
If you are resistance training it is important to track amount of weight, number of sets and repetitions performed. It is also important to write down how you felt during and after your workouts in order to help adjust the intensity of your next workout. By keeping track of your exercises you will be able to see the benefits of your efforts.
