I'm looking for a logger for my exercises, where I can record reps, see progress, etc. I am into weightlifting [or write here whatever you are doing] but I would like to be able to record my cardio progress and others, too.

Is there any such program, online site, smartphone app?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Why did this question collect a couple of downvotes? – Mephisto Aug 9 '13 at 23:09
@Mephisto because the user should have known better, asking for "the best something" always triggers the red warning lamp for the close reason below. He doesn't even tell his goals or preferences. And then there simply is "lack of research effort". – Baarn Aug 10 '13 at 7:40
@Infomaficker, I understand. Since I find the question interesting, I have proposed an edit to take the "best something" away and give some additional details (though I am afraid this is a non-registered user that will probably never appear again) that – Mephisto Aug 10 '13 at 13:19
I accepted that edit, though I'm afraid it didn't change much, and it's still subjective. – DarkLightA Aug 10 '13 at 21:14

There are some nice Android applications for free, like Lifting Log and Fit77 for general weight training; LiftBig specifically for SL5x5, or HIIT, that will additionally help you with your cardio.

Also, here, in EXRX there are some nice spreadsheet logs ready to use.

In any case, whatever solution you find, I would like to know about it (specially any Linux program) so I encourage you to post it as a comment, for instance.

Thanks! I'll take a look at those apps, though I'd really like it better online. I've used before and loved that, as it tracked progress, and I'd like something similar for strength exercises. – DarkLightA Aug 10 '13 at 21:15
@DarkLightA one site I use for tracking overall fitness effort is Fitocracy (web, iPhone, android). There is one site dedicated only to strength but I can't remember the name. – Baarn Aug 12 '13 at 9:57
Might be better to talk about these subjective topics in Physical Fitness Chat. – Baarn Aug 12 '13 at 10:00
