Tracking Workouts

If you like to keep track of every rep at the gym, The Lift League will be right up your alley. But for those that don't, here are a few things to consider.

  1. Improving performance: Logging workouts allows you to set a benchmark each time you train. The next time you train, you see exactly what you did last time rather than trying to remember. This is the best way to maintain progressive overload.

  2. Accountability: By logging your workouts, you are more likely to stick to your training plan. This can help you stay accountable and make it easier to follow a consistent routine.

  3. Motivation: By keeping a record of your workouts, you can see how far you have come and measure your progress over time.

  4. Identifying patterns: By tracking your workouts, you can identify patterns in your training that may be affecting your progress. For example, you may notice that you perform better on certain days of the week or after certain types of warm-ups.

  5. Avoiding overtraining: Overdoing it with your workouts can lead to burnout, injury, and decreased performance. By tracking your workouts, you can ensure that you are getting enough rest and recovery between sessions and avoid overtraining.

There is some scientific research that supports the benefits of keeping track of workouts as well. For example, a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that participants who tracked their workouts had significantly greater strength gains compared to those who did not track their workouts. Other research has found that tracking workouts can help people stick to their training plans and improve their overall physical fitness.


Establishing sustained motivation is just as important within The Lift League as progressive overload and variability. We know from experience the most effective way to stay on track, maintain progressive overload, and keep track of training variables is by logging workouts.
