Most of us have practiced part of our life. Chances are, if you’ve ever taken your training seriously, you’ve used a training journal or diary.
The main difference between training logs and training logs is what you document in them after each workout or day, etc. Training diaries are just that. They are more of a diary than a record. They usually include things like mental health and how you felt during the day or while exercising. They can provide some statistical information, but are usually saved for a training log.
Training records are usually created from some sort of template. For example. Every day you fill out a form that has the same fields. Things like current weight, daily training, diet information, are things that can be included in a daily training journal.
I wouldn’t recommend going one route or the other, both journaling and diary are important in maintaining an effective history of your past. I have found from experience and that for convenience it is nice to have two combined in some way. That way, it’s always easy to remember to do both.
Benefits of training recording The main benefit of recoding training is having a detailed history to remember. This can be very useful in planning moments. For example, to find out what worked and what didn’t work for you. It is very useful to find out the reasons for injuries or moments of exhaustion.
Have you ever sat down and tried to plan your workout with nothing to work on? If you have something to look back on, a detailed account of what you’ve been doing in the past few weeks, it’s easy to plan ahead and effectively increase the intensity of your workout, etc. to improve in the future.
It’s also great to have a detailed journal for personal use only and to be able to look back over past months and years to remember different accounts.
