Been doing this for a month now and loving it. I want to start keeping track of WODs. What has everyone found to be the best method for logging workouts? Excel? Websites like YOU MUST ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE. or on this discussion board? Thanks for the info.

Re: Logging

I write everything down in my paper log at the gym and I log it at Rips.

Re: Logging

I log all of mine on a (wfs) blog. So far it's been great for tracking because I can just add all kinds of labels to the posts for the exercises in them as well as their names. Whenever I want to see my progress, I just click on the label section and it will list all the posts that included that specific move or that named workout. No graphs or anything like that, but it's quick and easy.

Re: Logging

I started in a notebook, then transferred to an electronic format (More accessible, I can search easier, etc)

If it helps, i use this spreadsheet i made up (attached) Feel free to steal/use/modify. etc if you wish.

Re: Logging is a good one (wfs). It has many of the crossfit workouts pre-programmed in. It also graphs your progress. I like graphs.

Re: Logging

I use notebooks, I prefer not to rely on computers cause mine likes to crash every now and then.

Re: Logging

I'm big on blogger too, though a lot of people like beyondthewhiteboard for logging.
