Better Organization = Better Results

When it comes to fitness and tracking your progress, it always helps to be organized.   If you take care to chart your progress and keep track of your results, you’ll likely see better long-term results.

Hybrid Fitness has been posting updates or “tweets”, as they’re called, on the social networking site Twitter for a while now.  It’s always interesting to see who you meet, what you learn and, perhaps most importantly, who wants to follow you.  One of the connections we made on Twitter is with a company called LobotoME, LLC.  Their website is www.lobotome.com.  They offer a bunch of great organizational tools, one of which is a simple, effective fitness tracking form they call “Fit ME”.  What I like about the FitMe is that they don’t overthink it.  Instead of putting in a bunch of columns, rows and categories for things you may or may not need, they keep it very basic and give you just what you need to keep yourself honest and stay on track with your diet and exercise.

Do yourself a favor and check them out.  They’ve got a bunch of other organizational tools you might find useful as well.  Things for home, office, travel, etc.

If any of our readers have a Twitter account, please feel free to follow our posts here.

Keep training hard.

Long term progress

Most of us know that we can not train as hard as possible on every single workout for weeks and months at a time without burning out, getting sick or injured, or in a worse case scenario, all of the above. If you are being proactive about your training then you plan cycles of varying intensity which may cover several weeks or months at a time. Those who just sort of free-style their training may naturally cycle training intensity as they intuitively recognize that there is a limit to how often they can push to the max without over doing it.

Regardless of the approach you use to intensity cycling (logically planned or just winging it) keep in mind that some flexibility must always be present to account for or take advantage of unexpected energy highs and lows. In other words it is good to have a plan but don’t get so rigid that you force a hard day when you could really use a rest, or stick with a planned easy day even though you can tell your energy is at an all time high.

PAU for NOW
