    I also use pen and paper. No need to play around with a phone during a training session. Focused like a laser!

    My log book is jammed with info.

    Anabolics I'm on and anything I used pre

    Pre training meal

    Intra workout drink

    Sleep the night before

    If I worked before training

    Time I train

    Where in the rep I missed it (bottom, halfway)

    Any nagging pains

    How I feel

    Everything. If you REALLY focus on progressive overload, you HAVE to get that detailed when you're deep into a blast of increasing the weights and really reaching for strength after a long time of progression.
    I didnít log before meeting this guy. He required it and now Iím glad I do. I can go back and check what I did last workout and try to increase either weight or reps. Constantly trying to improve every week! Itís no wonder I would get stuck and not know what I should do next to keep progressing.

    When I was young I remembered EVERY set and rep because I constantly was beating my previous sessions plus my training was always very similar exercise wise.

    Years later I started training intuitively so then I had to log training or I would forget exactly what I did.

    The real eye opener for me was logging my diet. Everything that went into my mouth. OMG it was pathetic when I would look back on the previous week and see how little I was eating.

    I have a small note pad I was taking to the gym with me to log my lifts but it gets in the way of my training sometimes. I just track my big lifts like deads , bench, bb rows , db rows , behind neck presses , squats...Instead of every exercise like I I was doing lol

    Damn I guess I need to start a log. I remember it for the most part but I think it would help me nail it down better. It'd be fun to look back over years worth of info to see how far you've come.

    Like heavy, I train intuitively based how I feel and what I see in the mirror... could be chest 5 days in a week, or weeks going without hitting legs... it's ever changing. A log may help, but I'm not competing and therefore not that serious or dedicated as some. Not unless someone else is gonna log it for me.. it would take me out of the zone to have to record everything down between sets. I keep a pretty good log in my head both training and diet wise

    I go back and forth with logging for periods of time and not logging for periods but it does seem like when logging I make better progress and faster progress It's hard to keep track of all those numbers in your head if you're naturally an absent minded person like myself
