Keep track of sets and reps

Hey, guys, I figured I would add this tip to the Health and Fitness forum. I finished Kris Gethin's 12-week hardcore trainer over summer and I'm currently over halfway through Arnold's Blueprint to Mass.

One of the issues that I've been running into is keeping track of sets and reps with random numbers.

For example, last night was lower back, legs, and abs. My sets were:
  • Back Squat - 8 sets of 8 reps
  • Barbell Deadlift - 3 sets of 5 reps
  • Barbell Lunge - 4 sets of 4 reps
  • Leg Extensions - 5 sets of 20 reps
  • Lying Leg Curls - 5 sets of 20 reps
  • Standing Calf Raises - 10 sets of 10 reps
  • Cable Crunch - 4 sets of 25 reps
My tip is that I use my various colored guitar picks as a visual between each set:

So if I have a 10 set, I'll use 10 picks and place them in a row, putting down a pick as soon as I finish a set. Once I have the 10, I move onto the next exercise. This helps so I don't become forgetful or confused when jumping from set to set.

Other props you can use are various marbles, coins, small rocks/pebbles, small bouncing balls, etc. Basically, anything you can fit in your pocket and doesn't get in the way of other lifters in the gym.

That's a creative strategy! I guess the log book days are over...
