On a standard daily page, there is a page pertaining to exercises and workouts, with ample space to jot down specific workouts, sets, and additional notes as needed. There is also a designated food section to cover calories and macros if needed.
On a grander scale, the journal also comes with a high-level workout goal spreadsheet that can help document your progress over several weeks or months.
Overall, this journal covers pretty much anything I would need in a fitness journal and I couldn't be happier with purchasing this product from year to year as the pages fill up. I am currently on my 3rd book and every time I attempt to find a superior journal to use (or god-forbid, use my own formatting on blank sheets of paper), this journal still ends up being the go-to.
REASON FOR 4 STARS:
4 stars still means its pretty damn good. Don't get me wrong. However, the author took all his/her time to neatly organize the book, but combines cardio with strength in a one-day log. It would be far more effective to have the option to date one's cardio and strength training with separate date boxes.
In other words, you can log your exercise per day in one page. A one-day-log page consists of cardio (top half) and strength (bottom half) training, followed by the next page in which you can track your meals/calories. If you alternate between cardio and strength days, you will have to log on separate pages in order to be able to fill in the date box at the top. That entails "wasting", or not making use of, the cardio or strength section of half the page. Those who own the book could log nearly twice as much if a date box was added for the strength section! And if you train both cardio and strength in the same day, a check-box could be added to indicate strength was trained along with cardio that day! And as far as the calorie tracking, it could be minimized or even removed. Nowadays one can find so many free websites (and smart phone apps) that track one's calories with near perfect accuracy. Much more impractical to write it down.
The only issue I have is that I have tried to purchase the most current version (the website says its copyright is 2007-there's one that's copyrighted 2011) twice and while it's advertised what I receive is copyrighted 2002 and doesn't have updated information that 14 (almost 15) years would bring. It's very disappointing because I'd really like to have the more current edition. If you've looked around and are looking for this to be the current edition, you won't receive it.
