Log your workouts
This is an absolute classic error which people repeat again and again. There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever to not log your workouts. You can get log your workouts via our web site, download an app for your phone, buy a notebook or write things down on the back of your hand. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just do it!
Progressing at CrossFit is actually an extremely simple concept. All you need to do is a little bit more than you did the last time. Our programming is set up to give you enough exposure to the same movements that you can practice and improve them, as well as employing some constantly varied conditioning workouts.
If you did 5 sets of 5 reps at 40kgs on the press last week, you need to either do more weight than last time or more reps. That represents progress. This is a whole other topic of discussion, but it really doesn’t need to be a lot more weight. 41kgs would represent an acceptable improvement. Remember that lots of small improvements over a long period represent significant improvement in the long term.
Unfortunately what we often see is people who come in and have no idea what they did last week. So they do a number that may or may not be better than the previous workout. You may progress like this but why be so haphazard when simple solution is to write everything down?
Don’t underestimate the motivational power of a log. If you keep track of your workouts, every time you train you will have a specific task that you will want to accomplish. This can really help to keep you focused and motivated.
