Hey, so I've been tryin to start a log to account for the time and repetition I put into each technique but can't really think of an effective and efficient way to actually log it. Anybody have a format that works for them or maybe a mock log that I can go off of?


Thanks

I'd have a physical journal.

I have a notebook with 5 sections

4 sections for the different days weight lifting, (back/biceps, chest/triceps,legs/shoulders, and sprints/olympic lifts)

and the last section for my bjj repetitions.

I make a single page for say scissor sweep from guard. within the page i could have variants like doing a reverse one or doing one with a different grip, but underneath all of them I just do

date - reps done

it works for me, allows a lot of info to be stored

Yea that's kinda what I was thinkin. I just wasn't sure if there was a more legit format that schools are tellin their students to use or if I should just try to whip one up myself. thanks for the in put guys!

Lloyd irvin encourages his students to keep a log and it looks like it works for them. He says that if you went to a college class you would take notes and review them later or else you would forget some material. If you take notes in a college class why not take notes in a bjj class? I for one by friday always forgot what i had learned on monday but since i started a log its been awesome, so much more retention. I write down the instructor-date-type of class gi or no-gi,time and type of move and i write it out as detailed as possible. Some of them take up a whole page of notebook paper. I make sure to include the minute details that could either mean getting the move or not. Hope this helps and good luck training

Also i dont really concentrate on the number of reps because i review the technique on paper and rep it in my head around 1000 times and then do it during open mat or sparring

Sounds like something that would make a good and simple iPhone/Android app. I just started BJJ so I don't know what one would record in such a journal/log.
