An exercise log can be an important tool in helping you plan and maintain your exercise program.
A fitness log is a great way to track your progress. You can easily look back and see how you have progressed over time. In addition, it can help you plan and prepare for future workouts, as well as identify patterns of what seems to work well for you and when you have the most success.
On an exercise log, you should minimally include information about the type of workout, length, and intensity. But you can also include additional information such as the following:
- Food & hydration
- The route you took
- Shoes or clothes worn
- Approximate calories burned
- Illness or injury
- Personal bests
- Thoughts and feelings about your workout
