    I am really bad at remembering my workout routine so I am wondering if you guys know of any application that allows you to save a workout routine or even lets you list down your workout routine and what day it should be performed.

    So that when you are working out you have some sort of guide what to do next especially if your a beginner.

    Thanks a lot.

    Don't know if you're looking for a workout plan or not but Bodyspace has a really good app. You register on bodybuilding. com and it transfers the info over. You can also make hour own plans as well.

    My favorite workout tracking app is: Full Fitness. I just put in the exercises I do and enter/track/build my progress. It's very simple and no-frills but does have videos for many of the exercises as well.

    Bonus: One can add their OWN exercises, pics and descriptions.

    I'm so old school... I use a tiny paper! icon_eek.gif

    I don't like to bring my delicate, expensive cellphone with me when I'm training.

    My idea for what would work for me is to have a web page where you set up your routine(s). On it you can set the order, change the name of an exercise, set the reps and sets, days of the week, give a name for each routine (e.g., M-W-F, T-Th-S, or whatever), add notes for each exercise, etc.

    It then generates an e-book and sends it to your kindle, nook or whatever. You could have the kindle or nook app installed on your phone so you could use your phone (or tablet, etc).

    Alternatively it could generate an Acrobat PDF file that you could print. In different formats, for example, 2 or 4 pages per sheet of paper (you'd need to cut them up).

    Bodyspace is great. You can see previous workout goals, and you can customize 1000's of professional workout plans.

    Started out with pen and paper. Now I just keep it all in my head.

    But yeah, if you have a smartphone, there are many exercise apps out there. Here are a couple popular ones.

    Thanks for ideas.

    I use a table created in OneNote, so I can either type or handwrite the exercises into it on Windows 8 device.

    I prefer to just write it down in a very small notebook. I like to be able to page back quickly to see what I did a few days ago. I also like being able to back to some of the older notebooks to see the progress I have made over time.
