Did you ever think about maintaining an exercise journal? Keeping tabs of what exercises you are doing is the very key to your fitness success. How else will you know if what you're doing is working?

Maybe you are doing too many reps of one exercise and not enough of another. Keeping a workout journal will show what a great or not-so-great workout routine you're following. It will show that you are totally slacking off and you need to get back on that treadmill. Or it may reveal you're on the right track and should keep up the good work.


Who wants to take the time out of their busy day to write down in a book the workout and exercises just completed? It's difficult enough trying to fit in a vigorous workout as it is. By keeping a fitness journal, you will discover an entire plethora of fitness information about yourself. You may be working out too many days a week, thus harming your body by not taking time off.
