Tracking Training Preparedness
Mike Robertson posted about an interesting concept today, tracking Training Preparedness. Since I started doing it, I have been a big big fan of tracking your progress in the weight room and with any other workouts. It’s amazing how much easier it is to make progress when you can see exactly where you are at, on paper.
I think it is a good idea to keep logs of track workouts and workouts in the weight room. Robertson takes this to the next level by recording rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and rating of technique (RT). These are elements that I have recorded maybe once or twice when I felt really exhausted or barely squeezed out a rep with terrible form, but I like that idea of making this something that you always take down.
Read the article and let me know what you think. Do you record data from anything that I haven’t mentioned?
