Use your mobile device to easily log your workouts

Happy President's Day. Abolish Sleevery.
So who wants an easy way to keep a log of your workouts, especially your strength progression? There are only a few of you who are keeping your log books in the gym. Some of the rest of you are using your phones to take pictures of your workout, but you don't have a good system to save and retrieve the data. I wrote a program that will automate your record keeping and make it really easy to look back in your history. This is especially useful for the strength progression. You want to quickly be able to look up your last weights so that you can increment them.

The way this works is that I'll give you a secret email address to use. Whenever you're done with a workout you just send an email to that address with your workout - it can be a simple bit of text or it can be a photo of the chalk board, whatever works best for you - and it will automatically get appended to your private log. I also have a form that you can just fill out quickly if you don't like email. You can view your logs on your mobile device at the gym and add additional information later when you get home and are in front of your computer. It's all dynamic with no constraints.

I'm going to test it out this week for my own workouts. If you're interested, let me know and I'll get you all set up. It's free, so there's no excuse to not use it.

My goal is to make it easy for you to log (and retrieve) your workouts so that you can get the most out of the strength progression, so please take advantage of this if it matches your workflow!

Record and view your workout logs directly from your mobile device - no apps needed. Choose your interface: email or form. Everything is editable on your computer at home so you can add more information later when you have more time.
