Gabe's Training Log

I just figured out how to share my training log very easily, I've added a link to the right side of the page here, but also here it is:

Gabe's Training Log.

One note, each week is designated as a certain type, indicated by an abbreviation.

GPD - general preparatory developing
SPD - special preparatory developing
GPS - general preparatory stabilizing
SPS - special preparatory stabilizing

There are also times when the volume is bumped up significantly, these are called shock weeks. These different types of weeks have different purposes, and put together they make up mesocycles. This is called periodic training, and will be addressed in depth in a future post.


  1. Just found this site a couple weeks ago. Great info. After 15 years of climbing I think I may be convinced to keep a training log. I had a peak last winter and I am now on a serious downswing/plateau. I wish I knew exactly what I was doing last fall so I could repeat it.

  2. I was a bit skeptical as to the benefits of a log when I first started keeping one, and it took me some time to figure out exactly what I wanted to keep track of, and how I would keep track of it. But after probably a year of tweaking and experience, I'm now very comfortable with the format of my log, there's no way I could go back to training without a log.

    I think each individual needs to figure out exactly what their log is going to look like for themselves, but the main items mentioned in the previous post I consider to be requirements.
