comment Best information to keep in a exercise journal and how to keep it
+1 for good old-fashioned paper and pen. I experiment at times with different apps, spreadsheets, but the notebook has been a constant "master" for the data.

Great point regarding soft tissue - that can rapidly become the bottleneck, as well as injury risk.
