Do you carry a log around with you as you work out

  1. just curious if you guys memorize every weight you are going to do and every exercise or you bring your routine on paper with you??

    Personally I bring my stuff with me. I usually know the weights that I'm doing and all that, but I just don't want to screw anything up.

    I've always kept a training log but an HST log is my favorite because I don't have to write anything in it! It's all pre-recorded. Just a quick glance and I'm away. I use a printout which has the weight for each end of the bar rather than the total weight (for all barbell exercises). It's so simple I hardly have to engage my brain! :)

    I train at home, so if I can't remember what weight I'm supposed to use, I just have to glance at my computer... which happens to be in the same room as my equipment.

    Always my log and a pencil to jot reps completed and how difficult I perceived it to be.

    After my deads it looks like a four year old penciled in the entry [​IMG]

    I use a log[book] if I'm measuring maxes or not doing HST (which hasn't been for a while). If I'm doing an HST cycle I'll have a little printout about the size of a credit card i can keep in my pocket with the week's weights on it. I have an Excel spreadsheet that works out all the weights for the whole cycle and has a summary sheet to print off with eight weeks of workouts.

    I definitely carry a log. Hard to remember everything. :)
    Also wear a watch so I can time my rest periods. Helps to get in and out in an hour.
