    Can someone suggest a good gym application for me?

    I am starting to workout again and want to actually keep track of everything this time around.

    I was thinking of using this site to keep track of my workout. I believe they have a BB app, would be nice if they created one for Android devices.

    I created an app called GymBook that will let you keep track of your weight lifted, sets and reps. User reviews are pretty good. You can find it by searchng for gymbook in the market, or scan the QR code on my site at larrymccarty.com.

    Honestly, use paper. I found the phone to be an extreme hassle. Too much time clicking and typing, totally disrupted the flow of my workouts. Grabbing a pen and scribbling in a book is much easier, IMO. Also it makes it easier to add notes as you go.

    I grabbed one of these..

    I agree with Jim. Small clipboard and a piece of paper or notebook and then transfer it to your favorite pc software / website. I tried a few different ones on the market and it was too cumbersome pulling the phone in and out of my pocket, getting sweat all over the phone and worrying about dropping. It stays in my pocket tethered to my bluetooth headset steaming music :)

    I'm using an Excel spreadsheet (that I created on my PC and then downloaded to the SD Card. I have 1 tab per exercise. 1st column for date, 2nd column for weight, 3rd-5th columns for reps for sets 1-3. 1 row for each date.

    I use Documents to Go to edit the spreadsheets while I work out. I can simply copy and paste a row and change the date. If the weight or reps is different from the previous workout, then I change those numbers. I keep the Droid in the Verizon holster. I can usually take it out, pattern unlock, make my changes, and put it back in less than 60 seconds (which is my rest interval between sets).

    I've found WorkItOut for my workouts. Really happy with it thus far.
