New Journal! Introducing the TrainRite Compact Fitness Journal

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was working on a new journal format completely based upon the feedback from my users over the past year. Again, thank you all who took the time out to give me feedback and allow me to create the best product for you. I’m thankful for all of the positive feedback I continue to receive for my traditional TrainRite Exercise and Fitness Journal. ūüôā

So here it is: the TrainRite Compact Fitness Journal  Рa truly collaborative effort from people like you. 

New Features:

  • Compact. Somehow more compact than the original, this version is also more a ‚Äėtraditional‚Äô book shape making it strong and sturdy
  • More sets. Many of you animals wanted more than 4 sets per exercise as in the first journal, so you‚Äôre in luck ‚Äď this book‚Äôs got 5!
  • More logging for cardio or classes. This version has 3 spaces per workout for cardio or other non-weight training activities.
  • We like notes. A space for notes! ‚ÄėNuff said.

And as always…

  • No frills, no wasted pages.
  • Waterproof cover and backing
  • 10 exercises per workout
  • 90 workouts worth of logging
  • A planning chart for creating 12 unique workouts that is always with you

New TrainRite Logbook feature: Pre-planning Workout Guide!

Hi all!

I wanted to bring your attention to an exciting new feature that will ship with every TrainRite Logbook order!

The TrainRite Workout Guide ¬†allows you to pre-plan a rotating¬†2 week fitness routine. This is a great addition to the logbook in the sense that you’ll fill out the chart well in advance, so when you show up to the gym you’ve already done the hard work and know exactly what you’re working¬†that session.

I do this myself, and has been a critical step in creating well rounded workouts and meeting my goals. I’ve received an overwhelming request for this feature from current TrainRite users that I’ve shown my chart to. I rarely repeat exercises over my 2 week rotation, so my pre-planned routine can actually outlast my 90 day TrainRite Logbook.

Top 3 reasons to pre-plan your routine with the TrainRite Workout Guide?

1. Saves you time. By spending the time and doing the ¬†hard work upfront, you’re never scrambling to dream up your workout while on the way to the gym.

2. Forces you to take a step back and get a birds-eye view of how effective your workouts are. You’ll see which muscle groups you’re overlooking, or overworking, and help you gear your workout routines to meet your goal

3. Expands your horizons. You’ll take more time researching new exercises and training techniques while you fill out your guide. The more variations of exercises and techniques you use, the less “routine” it will actually be!

How do I use it?

1. Choose up to 6 days per¬†week, and fill out the top row of the chart for each week. I workout Monday through Saturday, with Sunday’s off for rest – so I’d fill out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and so on to Saturday.

2. Then under each day, choose the musclegroup(s) you’re going to target. A few examples from my own guide are Fridays I workout Legs/Shoulders and Saturdays I hit my Back/Core.

3. Now just fill out the exercises you’re going to complete and the SETSxREPS of each. Over the two week rotation you can use the same days for similar muscle groups, but try to choose different variations of exercises to work those groups. This will help you build muscle and prevent you from getting bored with your workouts. The more variations, the longer you can keep using this same routine. And don’t forget to choose additional rest days!

4. Peel off the backing and stick it to the inside the plastic backing of your TrainRite Logbook.

Deconstructed Taco! (….salad)

Tacos are great! So in an attempt to recreate a healthier version… I came up with this deconstructed salad.
It’s also great. Honest.¬†You may miss the taco shell and cheeses – but you have to make sacrafices sometimes, right? This was satisfyiing enough for me anyway ūüôā

It may look like a ton of ingredients, but a lot of that is spices that can be left out/exchanged. The majority of your time will be chopping fresh vegetables.
Enjoy!

See the recipe here!
