Thoughts on workout numerical analysis.

I’ve been struggling over the past, what, two years figuring out how to combine workout data such as reps, sets and weight into a comprehensive value. This value, when compared with other values in a trainee’s workout history should be a good indication of progress, and be able to provide a visual indication of achievement. I think I’ve figured out how to combine the numbers.Given this set of data:table.pngI’ve produced this graph, which I think represents the progress quite well:workout graphThoughts and comments are appreciated and desired.Graphing competitive workouts like CrossFit is quite easy, because I have a solid number to work with: max rounds in a set amount of time, or a shortest time to complete a set number of rounds. Graphing weight/strength training routines is quite challenging.
