Fitness and Body Composition Results Tracking Using my iPad


I have been tracking my progress for awhile now, but something always felt incomplete about it. For example, I did waist and chest measurements but have not religiously tracked them. I was my reading through Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman and the concept of personal experimentation was discussed and I realized this is an approach I should be taking – keeping very close tabs on my results and testing various protocols to determine what works best for me.

As a result, I have decided to take action and am now using my iPad to diligently track my measurements. This will hold me accountable, as well as most importantly allow me to set-up mini 4-6 week experiments where I can gauge progress and determine scientifically (sort of) what is working and what is not.

Here are the tools that I will use to track my progress, including those of professional fitness consultants (not trainers):

Evernote to journal workouts
MyoTape Body Tape Measure
Warrior DIgital Body Mass Caliper
iPad Apple Numbers for iPad
Body Composition Test – done at TCR Sport Lab
Metabolic Measurement (determines resting metabolic rate) – done at TCR Sport Lab

Here are a couple of screenshots of the tracking tools – one for the body measurements and one for the lifts (sample). Again, both have been done using Numbers for the iPad:

Be sure to sign up for my RSS feed so that you can see what I do with these numbers and start to build out programs to take myself to the next level.
