21 Day Fit Tip: How to Track Performance and Keep Intensity at Peak
The 21-Day-SSC is a rapid transformation program where you give it everything you’ve got, going ALL OUT for 21-minutes a day, for 21-days straight.
The 21-minute workouts require absolute focus and intensity. You’ve got to keep the pressure on. You can’t afford to mess around. And that’s just what the program is designed to do, with the 30 seconds of training followed by the 30 second rest. [repeat]

Rather than the standard model of 12-10 or 8 rep sets, in the 21-Day SSC you’re pushing reps to the clock, not the count. This really changes things and you’ll feel it. It’s quite a different experience.
Here’s a way to track your output. Use the workout Trackers [here - opt in on right to get them] and record the weight pushed and total reps for each set. Do this for the entire 21-minute workout.
Then, when you’re done score it. That means do the math: Multiply the pounds lifted x the reps completed (for each 30 second interval) and add them up.
For example: Bench Press : 200 lbs x 15 reps = 3000
Now, let’s say you just stick with this set weight for each of 3 sets. Add the total, 3,000 + 3,000 + 3,000_ = 9,000 lbs.
When you’ve completed this simple math and score your entire workout you’ll have a total pounds moved in 21 minutes number. Record that. That’s your baseline, the number you’re going to best each workout.
Now, as this can take a few extra seconds here and there, I suggest you mark your first workouts, then keep a loose track in the middle weeks and record the last week. This way you are keeping yourself honest and getting a closing measure of performance—but not jacking your focus each workout with too much record keeping.
