Logbook Sites

Hey i've been using but i have alot of trouble with it at times and im under the impression alot of folk are'nt using it anymore.
Which is the best and most comprehensive WOD logbook site?.I train alone and want to gauge my times against others for different WOD's so that feature is most important to me.Thanks

Re: Logbook Sites

I and a lot of the people at my box use beyond the whiteboard. Main site wods are automatically posted. Very user friendly

Re: Logbook Sites

For lifting I believe everyone should keep a hand written log book.

For WODs I like Beyond the White Board. It has the ability to filter by age and body characteristics. This leads to better comparisons.

It does have a couple of issues.

1) The people who report regularly tend to be above average CrossFitters. A form of selection bias.

2) Sometime there are inconstant reporting standards. In a WOD with defined rest half the people will input total time including rest the other half will exclude the rest only reporting work time. This messes up the comparisons.

As long as you understand these limits it can be helpful.

Re: Logbook Sites

I use BTW too and like it. I have also noticed the issues mentioned by Brendan. The loose standards are a bit annoying.

Re: Logbook Sites

i spotted this post last night and wanted to mention that since 2011 I've totally rebuilt logsitall - hopefully addressing some of the concerns about loading time and ease of use. I'd love feedback on the new design/features. and (basic fast mobile version)

both still free.

Re: Logbook Sites

I like I tried using phone-based WODs, but data entry is too problematic, and paper books are not very searchable. There may be better options, but it works for me.
