I was up the other night thinking about a better way to introduce and explain our Excel based workout card within the limitations of this blog format. Typically, the first day we introduce the workout card to our student-athletes (or coaches) we use a projector with a laptop. The session involves walking through both visually and verbally how to read and manage their personalized workout card. I have found that trying to explain the card via this blog, by just typing out an explanation can get pretty wordy, and the diagrams, just being pieces of the entire card, are not as clear as what I would like.
To solve this problem, I figured out how to make a screen recording, with audio (I will have a post about this later – it is a pretty slick trick, especially when making recordings of your Hudl telestrated video) showing the various parts of the workout card. This will be the first of three video tutorials supplementing my previous posts regarding the workout card.
- Navigating the Workout Card
- Managing the 4 Day a Week Workout Card
- Managing the 3 Day a Week Workout Card
Below is the first of these video tutorials, Navigating the Workout Card

I hope this helps explaining the various parts of the workout card. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, just leave a comment or shoot me an email. I will reply!
