Record your workouts

Last week we announced you can track your workouts through Zen Planner online (use the login you got when you started at CFM) or using their iPhone app.
Tracking your workouts will help you make quicker progress in the gym and helps your coaches help you.
If every time we back squat, you have no record of the weight used last time we squatted, you’ll spend your first few sets guessing at a good starting weight. Instead, track those numbers so you know exactly what you did last time and we can hopefully add a little weight next time around.
Note: new students are different. We’ll use your first few workouts to determine your starting weights for lifts and modifications for other movements.
Want to get better at pullups? When you approach your coach to ask for help, we might take a look at your training records (which we can see through Zen Planner…so cool!) and be able to recommend some additional work to complement what you’re doing in the gym. Or we might see that perhaps the reason you’re struggling with pull ups is that you avoid them every time they come up in a workout. Hint: today. pull ups. be here.
It’s also important to take a few minutes before class to review the workout of the day and your past results at similar workouts to decide what your starting weight will be or what modifications you might make. Your coach in class will always help with this, but checking your numbers during class can eat up valuable training time.
Come prepared and track your progress! It makes a big difference!
