Exercise Log Sheets

I like to keep a record of my exercise sessions. I log the exercises I do, in the order I do them and how many reps I perform with the weight I use.

I find it really handy to keep these so I can look back at my progress, or lack-thereof and decide if something needs to be changed so that I keep progressing.

I’ve attached a PDF of the sheet that I use. I list the exercises down the left hand side and use each column for a set. In each box I write the number of reps and the weight, for example: (10/40) would denote 10 reps using a 40kg weight.

You may find it useful, too – especially if you’re using the exercise plan I previously blogged.

Hi Matt -
Thanks for all the exercise/diet advice which I’ve just stumbled on while looking for other things! :)

Also thanks for the exercise log form. I have a quick question – what do you put against ‘bone’? And what do you use to measure changes to muscle and bone?

Regards, Steve

Hi Steve.

I have Tanita Body Composition Scales which give me readouts for bone, muscle, water and fat.

Don’t worry if your scales don’t do that. The sheets were initially designed for my use so I didn’t bother removing that from the PDF I uploaded.

Aha – I have scales that give water, fat and BMI (which is depressing at the moment…) but it doesn’t stretch to muscle and bone. I’ll have to have a look around for the Tanita scales.

Thanks for that!
