Benefits of a Good Training Journal


Most of us have trained at one part in our lives. Chances are if you've ever taken your training seriously you've used a training journal or a training log.

The main difference between training journals and training logs, is what you document in them after each workout or day, etc. Training journals are just that. They are more of a journal rather than a log. They will normally include things like mental health and how you felt during the day or your workout. They can reach a bit into some statistical information but this is normally saved for a training log.

Training logs are generally created of off some kind of a template. For example. Everyday you fill out a form that has the same fields. Things like current weight, daily workout, diet information, are all things that can be put in a training Log on a day to day basis.

I wouldn't recommend going all one route or all the other, both journaling and logging are important to keep an effective history of your past. I've found out through experience and that for convenience sake it's nice to have two combined together in some way. This way it's always easy to remember to do both.

Benefits of recording your trainingThe number one benefit of recoding your training is to have a detailed history to look back on. This can be very useful in times of planning. For example to figure out what has worked for you and what hasn't. It's very useful for figuring out reasons for injuries or for times of burnout.

Have you ever sat down and tried to plan out training with nothing to work with? If you have something to look back upon a detailed account of what you've done over the past few weeks it's easy to plan ahead, and to effectively increase your workout intensity, etc to improve for the future.

A detailed journal is also really nice to have just for personal use, and to be able to look back on past months and years, to remember different accounts.--Feel free to reprint this article as long as you keep the following caption and author biography in tact with all hyperlinks.
