Regardless of what sort of exercise you do, keeping a workout diary can prove incredibly useful. Particularly after you’ve been working out for a year or more.
When I say ‘workout diary‘, I don’t necessarily mean anything fancy. A notebook and pen is really all you need. Just keep it handy whenever you set to work – whether that’s a quick set of sit-ups each morning or a lunchtime run around the park – and jot down what you did. In a few months or more you can glance back and say to yourself ‘Is that all I was doing then? I’ve come a long way in a few months‘.
It’s great motivation.
