I did a “fitness challenge” for the month of March that included tracking my exercise on a daily basis. For me, that’s mostly my kickboxing class. I thought the challenge would be a fun way to figure what all I do in the month, and see where I need more work.
My workout class is 3x per week. On some off days (maybe once a week), I’d run 1-3 miles or go on a walk with my wife.
Here were my results:
Overall, this is a fairly accurate representation of what I actually did. I would typically take a picture of our “board” and then log my reps when I got home.
I’m sure stuff like stretching, walking, and water are lowballed, because I didn’t log non-intentional instances.
Also, some of the items were difficult to log. For instance, so I wouldn’t double log the “high intensity” kickboxing element of my workout, I didn’t put stuff we’d do that could qualify for reps, because I’d just add 15 minutes of high intensity for each session. Also, some workouts didn’t really have a home (like mountain climbers for instance), so I rounded in other areas as best I could to fit.
I’m pretty pleased with the results. I definitely want to see how this would change month to month, so I’m doing it again. I’d love to see the back/lats/shoulders go up; but I was shocked just how many stomach and leg exercises I did.
