"I made a promise to myself that I would make better choices and invest in something that can help me evolve. I knew I would go back to the gym, but I would have problems figuring out the right workouts for the right areas. With the weight lifting Journals and the Badass Body Goals, I have the workouts set, but I was able to choose the days, the reps, and the weights to my liking. If it wasn't for the journals, I don't think I would be anywhere near where I'm at today. Thank you @HabitNest for giving me the tools I needed to get closer to my fitness goals. I recommend this to anyone who's ready for a change, but may be struggling with getting their foot in the door."

Journal Craftsmanship

Details matter. Our journals are built with a beautifully crafted 100% vegan cover that’s textured to the touch in a hearty, canvas-like material.

The inside pages are a buttery smooth 100 GSM that perfectly support fountain pens while keeping the journal light and portable.

Each journal in this series runs about 9.5" x 7.0” x 1.0” and fits easily in most bags. Each volume has its own unique texture as well.


Q. I already have Volume 1!

A. So great! You can absolutely start over from day one (it's fun to see how far you've come!) or, you can check out Volumes 2-4 here.

Q. What equipment do I need to use this journal?
A. You definitely need access to a gym with at least basic equipment (i.e. a dumbbell set and a cable tower). That being said, the journal is designed to work for people with limited equipment available (i.e. in a small apartment gym) as there are "Alternative" exercises listed for ones that there may not be available equipment for.

Q. What exactly comes with the journal?
A. The journal comes with a physical book with 60 workouts, a text guide explaining the proper form for each exercise, a link to videos demonstrating each exercise, and optionally a digital PDF of the journal.

Q. What size is the journal? What is it made from?
A. The journal runs 9.5" tall, 7.0” wide, and 1.0” thick and fits easily in most bags. It’s built with a beautifully crafted synthetic leather (100% vegan) cover that’s textured to the touch in a hearty, canvas-like material.  The inside pages are a buttery smooth 100 GSM that are the perfect mix of thick enough to support fountain pens while still keeping the journal light and portable. 

Q. How long does each workout take?
A. Every workout can be completed in 45-60 minutes.

Q. How hard is it?
A. The journal is effective for lifters of all levels. It allows you to slowly scale up your intensity with well-timed suggestions for new challenges along the way. Every ~10-15 days we show you how to further challenge yourself (if you want to) by adding an additional set, supersets, and dropsets to your workouts.

Q. Should I only build one habit at a time?
A. This is entirely dependent on you and your situation. If you want to take it one step at a time, starting with one is enough. If you have a burning passion inside you to build multiple habits at once, many people use multiple journals alongside one another.

Q. How many days long is the journal?
A. Each journal contains: - 50 pages of introductory reading (optional) - 48 weight training workouts - 12 full body circuit workouts - 30 pages of interspersed content (i.e. form recommendations, pro-tips, and daily challenges) throughout the workouts - A system to track your progress, muscle growth, and weight fluctuations along the way.

Q. Where do you ship to?
A. All over the world!

Q. How long does shipping take?
A. Shipments will arrive in 3-7 days (US orders) or 10-28 working days (international orders).

Q. For international purchases, do I have to pay extra customs/VAT upon arrival?
A. No, you shouldn't have any extra incurred fees.

Q. What is your return policy?
A. Find our return policy here.

Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
A. All credit and debit cards are accepted. We also accept payment through Paypal and Amazon Pay. All currencies should be accepted.

Q. What currency are prices listed in?

Love that the exercises are spelled out.

Raneem Almuslim
Worth it!

I love the exercises its really helpful , but i wish if they could highlight which muscles are we targeting in each exercise plus if they cloud do a version where we could target a full upper body instead of 2 muscles each day. Over all it’s really a life saver !

Cookie Cutter Workouts

Would like a journal like this but not with pre made workouts as I have my own program

Thomas Hazelton

Jennifer Shelley
Great book, Amazing Customer Service

This is a great journal for anyone starting out weightlifting. There is a variety of exercises, and they explain them well. This puts together a solid plan for someone looking for a full body plan. They did a good job of splitting up the workouts. My one suggestion would be to include some dumbbell /barbell only exercise days.
They also really stand behind their product. My first journal arrived with some damage to the spine. I contacted Habit Nest with pictures and they sent a replacement out right away. They are a great company to work with.
