Why we ask you to log your progress
We all love the feeling of hitting a personal best. Not only do we feel accomplished, but it tells us that what we are doing is working. The programming, the eating, the hydrating–we know what is working and what isn’t working based on how we do in each workout.
As coaches, we are constantly asking you to log your progress in SugarWOD. We do this because it is the only way we can see your progressions over the course of weeks, months, and years.
Then, from there, we can make decisions based on your progress. After all, how else do we know that you need extra help at overhead squats if not through your history of your weights during that lift?
Logging your progress also helps both you and the coaches see where you are in reference to your goals. If your goal is to do consistent double unders, we need to know if you are doing singles, single double single or sets of 10 double unders. These simple pieces of information allow us to help you!
Also, it helps you remember how far you have come.
At the end of the day, it is easy to get caught up with a missed PR or one bad workout. When you are able to look at where you were 6 months ago, it puts into perspective all of the growth you have made.
If you are someone who forgets to log your workouts, remember all of the benefits to taking that extra minute after your workout to log it in. How will you know how far you have come if you don’t have your starting point?
