Workout Binder (Workouts Post 12-Week Program)

Now that I've completed the Jamie Eason 12-Week Training Program, I needed to figure out what to do next.  The last couple of weeks I slacked off on my workouts, so time to get back to it!  I want to continue the strength training (especially on my legs/glutes) and picked a few of my favorite workouts from the Jamie Eason program and will continue to do those to build muscle.  I think they are all from Week 7 of the program.  I'm also looking forward to trying the spin classes at my gym, and now that the weather is warming up here, I'm going to start jogging outside again.






I went ahead and printed the workouts (Arms, Back, Shoulders, and two Leg workouts), wrote in the weight I typically lift for easy reference, them laminated them so I can use them while I work out.  I could commit them to memory, but this is easy and mindless so I don't have to think about what comes next.  


I have printed out all of the workouts from the 12-week program and keep them in a binder, along with my measurements so I can track my progress.  The binder is just an inexpensive 1-inch white three-ring binder with a plastic cover, so I inserted something to motivate me on the front. 


I love the shot of this strong woman climber and the quote that accompanies it.  


And on the back, I included a shot of a muscular and feminine physique I admire.  That booty- dang! 


Those pages are from Oxygen magazine.  The binder lives in my workout bag along with my mini i-Pod, workout gloves, and water bottle.  

How do you keep track of your workouts?

  1. I love the Jamie Eason LiveFit Trainer workouts. This is a great idea to take a few of the workouts from the plan and placing them in the workout binder. I tend to write down in a list of all the workouts I do.

  4. Love this! I keep track of my workouts the same way, by creating a binder that gives me space to write and record!

    Thanks for more inspiration!

  5. Thank you for sharing! I have a notebook that goes with me everywhere. It has so much info in it I would die if I lost it. But it is so unorganized. I need to make a pretty folder like yours. I like the idea of laminating the workouts. Thanks!!!
