To reach your fitness goals, you must track your results. Only what you measure will grow. We track results to make adjustments to our diet and workout. The body constantly changes to adapt to our diet and exercise. What works today will not work tomorrow. Tracking helps us to see what works and how we can make it work even better. When we keep a journal, we can see the connection between our workout and results.
Also, we track our efforts for motivation. Not only does the body respond to change, but so does the mind. The three C’s of working out are consistency, compliance, and change. Thus tracking helps us stay consistent and compliant with the changes we make to our workout program.
