Tracking your workouts is a very important element of your CrossFit training that many athletes neglect. Tracking your progress allows an athlete to systematically determine if they are reaching their desired fitness goals, and advancing as an athlete. It also holds you accountable for the work you do in the box. It will give you guidance when planning for future WODs.
It is important to remember that the sooner-the-better when it comes to writing information down post WOD. You should be recording the results of your workout as quickly as you can. The more info you write down the more helpful it is. It is likely that the later you wait to write down your info the more likely it is that you will forget some of the key elements of what you should be recording. Some important things to write down when logging your workout is weight on bar, band used for pull ups or ring dips, modifications made (such as how many ab mats used for HSPU), when you divided sets.
There are many different forms of fitness logs. I am a fan of the old school pen and paper, however there are many apps that have been designed for tracking WODs. Please feel free to comment below if you have a a tracking method that works well for you.
