Why should you track your workouts?
The short of it: so you can make progress.
As we get older strength becomes paramount. If you don't squat, you can't sit on the toilet. If you can't lift the laundry basket (a deadlift) you get to wear stinky clothes and probably have a sore back. When you can't pick anything up off of the floor, including yourself, you can no longer live alone.
Sound fun? Didn't think so.
When clients come in for food coaching, we always start with what they're currently eating. How can I possibly create a successful plan if I don't know how to start. It's like running a race, but only knowing where the finish line is. You can run in circles forever and never actually get anywhere.
If you don't know where you are, you cannot progress.
If you cannot progress, you will do one of two things. Stagnate or regress. And that depends on your age. It's harder to build as we get older. Keeping track of your percentages is key to making gains.
Lose strength, lose independence, end up in a nursing home. Let's just keep track instead!
