Keeping track of your progress is one of the most important things you can do outside the gym. This is usually overlooked by most people who just hit the gym without keeping track of the weight they use and reps they perform.

They don’t even keep track of their weight, diet or even take pictures of themselves to chart their gains. By doing this, you won’t even know if you’re making any gains at all.

If this is the case, you’re wasting a lot of your time and you can prevent this by putting a little time into keeping track of every part of your training and diet.

By doing this, you will know when to increase the amount of weight, if your overtraining, if your program and diet is good or not, or most importantly if your gaining muscle or losing weight.

The list is endless and you will have a much clearer idea of what you’re doing. It doesn’t take a whole lot of time and it hardly costs any money so it only makes sense to keep track of everything.
