If you struggle with record keeping or coming up with plans, I suggest breaking the behavior into very small pieces and focusing on one piece at a time, every time you train, for one month.

In one month, the behavior will become a habit, making it that much easier to add the next small, manageable piece of record keeping and training plan management!

  1. Whenever you train, write down the last rep you did. The next time you train that skill, start with where you left off.

In your second month,

  1. Whenever you train, write down the last rep you did. The next time you train that skill, start with where you left off.
    PLUS
  2. Write down as much as you can remember about the session.


In your third month,

  1. Whenever you train, write down the last rep you did. The next time you train that skill, start with where you left off.
  2. Write down as much as you can remember about the session.
    PLUS
  3. Film the session (you don’t have to watch it)


In your fourth month,

  1. Whenever you train, write down the last rep you did. The next time you train that skill, start with where you left off.
  2. Write down as much as you can remember about the session.
  3. Film the session (you don’t have to watch it)
    PLUS
  4. Write down what you’ll do next time – just a few sentences!

In your fifth month,

  1. Whenever you train, write down the last rep you did. The next time you train that skill, start with where you left off.
  2. Write down as much as you can remember about the session.
  3. Film the session (you don’t have to watch it)
  4. Write down what you’ll do next time – just a few sentences!
  5. Watch your video. Edit your notes as needed.

    In six months time, you’ll be a record keeping pro!
