Abs Training, Why You Need the Right Mind Set : 2 - Keep an exercises and diet journal

2 - Keep an exercises and diet journal :

If someone gave me the choice of having only two items to enhance my training, the items I would choose would be a pen and paper. This is so that I could then keep an exercise and diet journal, as I strongly believe that this is the most important aid in achieving the goals that you have set yourself. I am not alone in this belief, as most successful sportsmen and women do the same and keep accurate records of all their training sessions, year upon year. This is not only a useful tool but is also a testament to their attention to detail; that if asked, most could tell you exactly how much they weighed, what exercises they did and for how many sets and reps on any given day 1, 2 or even 5 years ago.

For your abs training keeping an accurate journal is vital in order to be sure of the progress you have made in weight loss, number of repetitions in any given exercise, and how your body measurements have changed. It is also true that we can all be guilty of false memory at times and it is easy to sometimes think that we have done better or worse than we really have. However, when it is in black and white in your journal, there can be no argument about the progress you have made. So for your exercise and diet journal, try to include as much information as possible. For example, record how many times you train each week, how long the training sessions last, the number of sets and repetitions you do for each exercise, and also how you felt both physically and mentally; before during and after your workouts.



For this journal it is important to record your body measurements and weight at the start of the program, and every week there after. Also note how many calories you consume each day, and what percentage of your diet is made up of protein, carbohydrates and fats. You should also record how many meals you eat per day, and how the diet makes you feel both physically and mentally.

Keeping these journals will help to prevent you from making many mistakes, and will also allow you to be fully aware of what is working for you and what is not. Therefore, you can quickly adapt any methods that are proving to be unsuccessful as soon as they become apparent. Also keep in mind that there are many people who train regularly but whose progress has stagnated for months or even years. However, if you were to ask those same people what exercises, sets, reps or diet they followed one year ago, most would be unable to tell you as they did not keep accurate and regular records. It is not possible to improve or build upon your progress if you don't know what you have done in the past.
