    Anyone have some advice on how to plan, organize, or remember all the workouts in the RealJock plan??
    Should I make a folder and carry it to the gym with check marks or something?
    I just know I'd waste my time trying to remember all the exercises and end up just jerkin around in the gym.

    I have them all printed off in a big arch lever folder. Then I take each week out as I use it and put it into a plastic leaf folder with just the workouts for the week I am in. I take that to my workouts and when the week is complete, I put that week back into the big folder and organise the next week into my smaller one.

    There is an option to print out the exercise plan with descriptions on the plan page for the day you are on. Just do a print preview first so you don't waste paper. Some of them print one blank page then the rest and some go as far as 20 pages. You should only need at the most 3 pages. The workout plan and the descriptions. Not the pictures with descriptions. Keep the descriptions as some days repeat and you can just use it again. You'll understand once you start using print preview.

    Agreed with growingbig on the saving of paper. Since the workouts repeat the second week, you only need to print out that description page one time for each day. The next week you can just print out new tally sheets.

    I tend to keep two weeks of tally sheets in my folder, if only so that for the second week I can look back on the first week to remember the amount of weight I used and the number of reps, partly to see if I can improve but more to speed up my workouts (I in no way could remember every week how much I used the last time). That also helps for when the exercises change up on the third week or fifth, or whatever, because for similar exercises I can always look back. It really helps make my time in the gym more efficient.
