The Power of Tracking Your Workouts: How to Measure and Manage Your Progress

There is a popular Quote that goes something like “ if you cannot measure it, you cannot manage it”  and when it comes to your Fitness this truly is the case! That is why we encourage all of our athletes to track their workouts over time. So how does tracking your workouts look? And why does it work?

So Why Track Your Workouts? 

If you want to make progress in your fitness journey, it's important to track your workouts. But why is this the case? And how can tracking your workouts help you achieve your goals?

Here are a few reasons why tracking your workouts can be beneficial:

Progress: By writing down the weight you lift and the time it takes you to complete a workout, you'll quickly start to build an awareness of your progress. You'll be able to see trends in your fitness and notice when you're adding more weight to the barbell or completing workouts faster. This will generate positive emotion and keep you motivated to stay consistent with your goals.

Accountability: When you track your workouts, you become accountable to yourself and other members of the community. Using a tracking app like SugarWOD will allow you to receive encouraging messages from your classmates, which can help increase your adherence to your fitness routine.

Accuracy: Our workouts are designed to be measurable and repeatable, so you can compare your current performance to previous ones. This allows you to see progress that you may not have otherwise noticed. It's important to remember that the only person you need to compare yourself to is the person you were yesterday.

Goals: Writing down your goals can make them feel more real and help you stay on track. Take the time to record your goals on a piece of paper and keep it somewhere visible, like on your fridge. This will help you focus on what's important and make sure you're working towards the things that matter most to you in the long term.

Tracking your workouts can be a powerful tool to help you make progress and achieve your fitness goals. So take the time to write down your workouts, set your goals, and stay accountable to yourself and others. You'll be amazed at how far you can go when you aim for what you truly want.
