Fitness goals

  1. Hoosierbuck
    Weight goals are good. They give you a number to shoot for. They really don't motivate me, personally, though.
    Here is what motivates me: a goal for a fitness milestone.
    My most recent one: get in good enough shape to play rugby again. (At 41, this is no joke.)
    Other ones I have used:
    *Sign up for and commit to run a race (5k, 10k, 25k, half marathon, marathon, mini-triathlon, etc.)
    *Commit to a fundraising effort. Once you put it out there, and get people to support it you CAN NOT back down. (Walked 40 miles on my 40th B-Day, raised $ for the Wounded Warrior Project.)

    What do you want to be able to do with your hard-won fitness? Set a goal, plan your work, then work your plan.
    What do you want to do, and what regimen are you pursuing to get it?

    Hehe, I want to be able to go on an elk hunt and pack out my kill. Not quite sure how I'm going to prepare, maybe load a backpack with about 100 lbs. and find some big hills to hike up all day...

    That goal is a tough one! How about a 50# backpack, a tall stairwell, and put a plastic bag over your head with 3 small holes in it to simulate the thin air??

    Playing rugby Saturday in Elkhart. All welcome. Look for the post in general discussion.

    My goals.
    Bike 1 hour every other day, 3 days a week, keeping my heart within a range of 115 to 138 beats per minute. I quit doing squats after getting bursitis.
    Upper body workout every other day 3 days a week. Four basic exercises, bench press, overhead press, pullups, and rows increasing weight by 5 lb each visit. The extra that I rotate is kneeling pulldown crunch (can't do regular ones), terrible threes (flutter kicks, hello dolly, and leg lifts one after the other), and planks.
