How to Use an Exercise Journal

By

Updated June 18, 2009

Exercise is a necessary part of losing weight and managing polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). When participating in a weight training routine, it can be helpful to keep track of each exercise that you do for a muscle group, the weight you use and the number of reps and sets that you are able to complete in an exercise journal. After a few weeks, seeing the progress that you make can be a real motivator. Print out this free exercise journal, and bring it with you when you exercise or use it as a template in an exercise notebook.
