I have some news. Exciting news! I´ve sent an application for Evernote´s Community Leader. What´s Evernote?
Evernote is a dynamic workspace that boosts your productivity. It´s a cloud note-taking app that makes very easy keeping track of pretty much everything. We´ll focus on how to use Evernote for fitness, keeping track of your workouts, meals, etc. Traditionally, trainers have encouraged their trainees to keep a training diary.
Last two years, I´ve been developing personalized workouts and meal plans to my clients using Evernote. Results have been pretty amazing. In the next few weeks, I´ll explain how you can use Evernote as the best training diary Ever!
Evernote has too many features to cover them in a single post. On Fridays, we´ll explore Evernote´s features for fitness purposes.
The first thing you need, in case you haven´t one yet, is create your account. Please, use my invitation. It´s free! Make sure to download to all your devices.
Your homework for this week😉
- Download the app.
- Create your account.
- Create a specific notebook for fitness.
Pick a fancy name, like “Fitness” or “Workouts”, and next week we´ll see how to get reunite all your previous workouts in there!

This is a popular exercise for the anterior deltoid. It isolates shoulder flexion.
Stand holding dumbbells lightly touching the front of your thighs and palms facing your thighs. Your elbows should be straight or slightly bend.
Engage your abs and pull your shoulder blades down and back. Keep your spine in a neutral position. Your head should be aligned with your spine.
Exhale and slowly raise one dumbbell up in front of your body until your arms are level with your shoulder. Your elbow and upper arm should rise together and lead the movement ahead of the forearm and dumbbell. Do not allow the back to arch or the wrists to bend.
Inhale and gently lower the dumbbell back to starting position.
Repeat with the other arm.
