      yeah its not like im doing 3x5 on a lift one day then 3x12 on it the next, but i just thought it might be nice to know exactly how many im hitting in each set

      the biggest guy at my gym carries around a fricking clipboard and keeps his reading glasses hanging around his neck like grandpas do during all his sets. its hilarious

        Sounds dope, just do what you want, as long as you lift and don't injure yourself

    no. there's no point if you're going (close) to failure and getting at least 5 reps. daily fluctuations are bigger than the "accuracy" writing shit down yields.

    I write shit down in a spiral notebook because it's what I've always done since starting.
    At this point, it's as much about the soulful feeling it gives as it is about actually recording my sets.

    Platz here isn't just wearing a sweatshirt, it's merch for a book. Serious Growth III, Big Beyond Belief. Must be almost 30 years old at this point.

    I wrote down workouts from that book and most other workouts down in notebooks, big ones, little ones, whatever.

      thats interesting. got nothing to do seeing as im done with uni, so i might pick it up and give it a read

      kek genuinely the best book I ever bought. Was seriously spinning my wheels, wondering if I should just stop
      Saw this book in the back of a mag and ordered it. Definitely worked and still use aspects of it today
      Biggest thing for me was the rest between sets. Love ramping up the volume and lowering the time between sets for a couple weeks. Then lowering with volume, upping the rest time and absolutely crushing the weights and prs

      checked, the book is a fun read but the workouts are what's important

      why are his gums so big, yet his teeth so small? is this what all calciumlets look like?

      I don't see the need unless you sustained brain damage from an accident
      I know what my best effort (weightxreps) is on major lifts and my mission each time is to surpass or at least tie it, simple yes/no proposition
      There's no reason to "keep track" of shit like leg press or face pulls, have a set/rep scheme and just do it, if you're feeling something in the target muscle ur doin it right

      >I don't see the need unless you sustained brain damage from an accident
      >thinking that i needed to get hit by a car to be a moron
      im flattered, but the stupidity is inherent

      FitNotes. The (usually) upward trending graphs it generates motivate me. Plus cool facts like how I moved 40k+ pounds in a session.

      downloaded, ill try it out later

      I think guys that use an actual notebook with paper and pen must surely have an obsession with being old school. Everybody has a phone with a notepad app.
      I give exception to guys who have been doing this for 20 plus years who just have a habit at this point of using a pen & paper. But then again you're not making gains after 20 years anyway so it doesn't really matter at that point.

      a life of being an always-online shut-in has made me avoid using the internet and apps on phones except when i can't avoid it.
      if i get out of the house i want that to not also be spent looking at a screen.

      its probably just an aesthetic thing. it takes more time that typing numbers into an app, and makes you look like a slight sperg to the people around you, but if it makes you feel like a bronze era lifter then so be it

        You're one of the archetypes of pad using phone avoiders I guess. I had a different archetype in mind - The reluctant family man, roughly in his 40s, gym time is his time & he doesn't even wanna have a phone on him at all because he's extremely keen to ensure this time is his time solely. I think lots of guys are like that but they don't use a notepad because they just turn off their phone internet instead lol

    i use an app 80% because i have a pretty bad memory and 20% because it does the estimated rep max autocalculated. I also like the calendar function and filling up the days with physical activity. sometimes when im bored at work i'll open up a previous workout and visualise me lifting more next session.
