I use a notebook to record weights, reps. etc....because I'm getting on in years and can't remember from week to week.

I wonder if i should start. It would be nice to see my gains I guess. I have to change my clothes upwards of 2 or 3 times per workout. So i dont think writing with paper would be beneficial, since I would probably wet everything and I dont even know most of the names of the lifts i do. I guess i should start learning.

No lol, its fully air conditioned and always at very cool temperature. I just SWEAT A TON, always have and always will. My brother is the same way as my father. I sometimes start sweating when im changing my clothes. Luckily i dont spill or drip over everything, its self contained so I can get pretty damn wet before I change.
But Now that I started taking dcp its really enhanced that sweating effect. Not tooo much, but i am sweating more.

And I use a little notepad to record reps, sets, date etc. Great way to track progress and ensure progression; knowing you do 4x8 last time helps me push myself to 4x9 this time around.

I might start typing this out, Im sure it wouldnt hurt to be doing it.

that reminds me of something interesting, 3 weeks ago I could barely do 225 on deads like 1 time. Im now doing 315 x 5. Ive gotten some crazy gains on dead, I think it also had to do alot with form. Took my awhile to get the right form since I had never done deads before.
Im gonna start trying to write out my workouts. Do you think you could post a sample workout sheet that you do or use? for ideas.

I train DC so keeping track is paramount. I put a stick-it note in my wallet and write down the exercises, weght and reps there. When I go home, I copy them in a word document and stack them. Before each workout, I look at the doc to see what weight/reps I have to beat. Every now and then I will do a Ctrl+F on an exercise and F3 to go through all the workouts I've done it in, looking at my strength progression.
When I was young I used to remember every set but now I am so indifferent that it has affected my memory for important things.

I use it for structure so I don't have to think about what weight I'm doing next, instead the next % and the stretch % (if I feel like going heavier than normal) is listed.
