I have a big spreadsheet I create for 8 weeks at a time.

It has each exercise I do on a given day and the number of reps/sets/weight/time to do each exercise. This weeks after week 1 are all calculated on what I should be doing on a set progression to get better. I fill out what I actually did in the spreadsheet next to what I was prescribed to do.

Then I can generate all kinds of charts, and graphs, analyze the data etc. I have a python script i wrote that gets this data as well as data from my wifi enabled scale and fitbit so I can play around with the data.

Analyzing the data motivates me to workout more and be more effecient
