Bodybuilding is an old sport and it still keeps the same training principles when it comes to muscle gaining, fat shredding and strength training; But with the passing of the years, a lot of things have changed and now, everybody has a smartphone and looks for android apps on google market, people have a lot more junk food than in the early days and etc;
Before these modern ages, every smart bodybuilder knew that in order to see his progress, he had to invent some kind of a progress tracker for when he was at the gym.
That progress tracker in the gym was later known as the good old workout log!
A workout log can help a lot of bodybuilders whether they’re beginner or advanced ones. The oldest workout log and also the best one still consists of a notebook and pen but some of the new bodybuilders believe that you should use smartphones with android apps in everything, including when you’re working out / lifting weights .
