Where can I find the training logs of (as many as possible) athletes?

I would like to have that first-hand data, to be able to do some statistical research. Training logs of real athletes, from which perhaps very useful information could be obtained (for instance: how sub-optimal is training once a week with respect to four times? Does it make a huge different for your shoulder strength if you only do bench presses vs doing a lot of overhead work? would I obtain some first-hand conclusion about the number of reps vs strength gain? That kind of things).

Try these:

  • After a quick look, I don't see data at either of those links. Did I miss it? I believe the original question sought readily useable data. Commented Aug 13, 2013 at 11:46

    @JoeGermuska my apologies. I'm used to contacting researchers for their data on a routine basis. I didn't realize this wasn't acceptable.

    Apology accepted (and I didn't mean to sound like i was demanding one) -- It was an honest question. I suppose that your references are better than nothing. Commented Aug 13, 2013 at 19:01
