The Purpose of Journaling

The Purpose of Journaling

Why do we keep score? What is the purpose? Who should be doing it?

Remember when you came in for your Intro and we did the Baseline Workout? During your workout, we kept your score and took notes throughout the workout. Then, during the Baseline Challenge, we compiled everyone’s score, before and after, and then calculated the improvements. What if we decided not to keep your score? How would we have known that you got any better? We would have been guess at best!

Keeping score gives us a quantitative assessment, the hard facts and data that allows us to take the intangible, and make tangible.It allows us to measure, observe, and repeat given workouts when needed. Over time these scores allow us to reflects on our programing (how we make up the workouts) and your improvement over time.

This past week we did the “CF Total.” This consisted of the heaviest weight you could lift for your Back Squat, Press, and Deadlift. Having this Data on hand is crucial for knowing what to strive for, and to note progress and PR’s (Personal Record).Assuming that you got stronger or guess work is not good enough for us. We want quantitative results that are unquestionable. We want results that we can stand behind, as individuals, and as a community.

We keep score to measure our own individual progress,and also to see how we compare to others that are held to the same high standard. EVERYONE should be doing it!
