As you trek through your Crossfit journey, you will want to make sure that you capture the moments that leave you feeling ecstatic and with a sense of achievement. Many fitness enthusiasts, both at the beginner and expert level, fail to record their progression in strength and personal-record totals. Writing down your PR's can lead to a sense of growth, but also give you pertinent information in how you can customize your program in the future in order to achieve the best results. Even elite-level athletes such as Rich Froning, Brooke Ence, Josh Bridges and Brooke Wells monitor their lift totals every time they step foot into their local gym.
Getting StartedWriting down PR's is the first step you can take in the right direction. As a rule of thumb, always date your journal in order to properly gauge when the event took place in order to give you a broad prospective of your weight totals. Similarly, this will give accurate insight into the linear strength progression that you're gaining in the gym and allow you to set specific goals for yourself in the future. Without these weight metrics, trying to properly asses yourself will become guesswork and cause you to move backwards in your fitness endeavors.
What's more, keeping a comprehensive journal of your routine will also prove valuable on days that you happen to miss the gym. Individuals that remove themselves from the gym for extended periods of time can use earlier log entries as a starting point for when they return. Lowering the weight, even if by a small amount, can help you regain the muscle that was lost and increase your overall strength output.
