Exercise Activity Log

I was perusing around the internet for an activity log to show one of my nutrition classes today. I was a little disappointed by the options. Some logs are great for people who are just starting to exercise, but it's difficult to find a log for the advanced exerciser who may be using ACSM or NSCA general guidelines (rather than accumulating "x" number of minute/steps per day). On this log, I left out stretching, since static stretching is a bit controversial. I also didn't include warm-up or cool down components, but it is important to do both. I had a bit of trouble making a log that isn't overly complicated, but also has room for specific exercise/reps/sets. Please comment if you have any suggestions for modifications to this log or know of another good exercise log for the advanced exerciser!
