I would like to keep a log of my WOD. Is there a printable template to take with me so I can write down my exercise, weight and time or does everyone log their information electronically?


Would like to be able to print out some pages, throw in a folder and take with me to the gym.

I advocate scratching it down on a piece of paper, and then doing it electronically.  I use Live Journal, but there are many other possibilities.  I can “tag” each unique WOD or lift and then look them up for reference in seconds.  I found that hard to do with a paper binder.

The tagging aspect you mention sounds very useful! I may just have to look into that. Thanks!

We covered this recently in another thread and someone else covered my preference, which is to use a Blogspot blog. Also supports tags. Free.

Idea copied from LauraR.

Oh and posting right after the workout is risky. Wait until bloodflow resumes to your brain and you’ll spend less time correcting your typos and weird grammar.

Yep. LOL. Guilty of posting within a minute to FBook and Blogspot, and here. Corrections at least 5 minutes to a day later.

We have too many heroes lost and not enough workout days to commemorate them. I think it’s fitting to always think of the men and women in service, whether military or peace officers and public safety, as we do our workouts. A bit of motivation to throw a little of our sweat and maybe a drop of blood on the floor in their honor.

There is no substitute for good coaching.

Yes. And the more places you post, the more corrections you have to make. Or you could not worry about it and assume no-one else will ever read them, but that never seems to work for me.

I find that the advanced search function here fulfills my needs nicely.

Along with a Mark 1 Notebook and Pen.

I also use a 12 month wall calendar that I can write on.

I post in the WOD post here for searching and for accountability. Plus when I ask questions there is something for the knowlegable folks here to reference.

I keep notes in my moleskine as a backup, and because it’s nice to have my WODs and active rest activity in one place chronologically so I can see progress with a quick read through. There is just something nice about writing notes on blank paper with a good pen.
