    So, here's my idea. I love using Google Docs and Spreadsheets, so I created one for my Strong and Lean 12-week workout. Then, I decided, after using it in the gym while working out (since i had my phone with me to play music), it seemed to be a very useful tool indeed.

    The iPhone just recently received the ability to access and edit Google Docs easily (if not a little bit slow with the spreadsheets). And I am sure most of the smart phones, especially Android phones, have some sort of capability.

    So, this is an editable spreadsheet so you can actually keep track of your progress digitally, rather than carrying a piece of paper and a pen with you to the gym.

    I published the template publicly so everyone can see it.

    The only stipulation is that you must have a Google account of some sort to use the file. To make yourself a copy to edit, just go under File on the Google Docs page and click "Make a Copy." Name it whatever you want, and you will forever be able to access it from your Google Docs account.

    Unfortunately it is not yet finished, but the hard part is over for me, so in the next few weeks it should be finished. I will eventually have a graph to keep track of reps and weights as well. When it IS finished, I will post as such on here. If you let me know you want a notice or something, I can do that too. Just message me or say it on here.

    This lets you see just how far you've come apart from the photos.

    So, let me know what you think. I will take any and all suggestions to heart and try to put them in if it seems like a good idea! I want to make working ot as easy as possible for us. The gays need to keep our reputation as the fairer orientation.

    Before you suggest it, however, I have already tried to make the weights and reps page automatically look up your entry on the workout page, but it seems there is no simple, time-saving method of doing so. My only option is to link each cell, one by one. That will take an immense amount of time, but I think I will do it. That will have to wait for last.

    Just save that part for when you get home and review your workout for the day.
