A weight lifting progress chart is something you need to help you keep track of your strength gains.
You should be tracking strength gains on each and every exercise from workout to workout.
Why are strength gains and your progress so important?
Well, you do want to build muscle and burn fat, right?
In order to do that, you need to make progress from EACH workout.
In order to build muscle, you need to focus on getting stronger in the muscle building rep ranges. A weightlifting progress chart will help you focus on getting stronger and therefore help you build the body you want.
A Free Progress Chart for Tracking Strength on Every Exercise
The progress chart I provide for free download on this page provides you with the option to include up to 30 different exercises in your chart.
You will want to enter the date of the lift, the weight you lifted, and the number of reps for the exercise you are entering.
The 1 Rep Max calculation will be done, and you can use this number as an estimate of the progress you are making.
Every time you perform a lift, enter the date, weight lifted, and reps completed. You will get a new 1 rep max calculation in the chart that you can compare with your last lift.
You should strive to always improve that 1 rep max calculation.
I don't recommend performing actual 1 rep maxes because they are not very safe. Instead lift weights to build muscle and get stronger in the approximate rep ranges of 4 to 15 reps.
This approximate rep range of 4 to 15 reps will help you build a better looking and a stronger body.
The 1 rep max calculation is only an estimate, but you should always use that calculation as a measure of your progress on each exercise. Strive to improve that number each and every workout.
