You can train to be batman or to feel less bad about playing arkham asylum. Last updated on january 20 2018 by jay when you decide to create the most effective workout routine possible to reach your specific fitness goal there is an important question you need to ask yourself first.
As the new year begins millions of people create the goal i want to lose all the weight this year.
Gym goals. Once youve mastered one strive to go to the next level by adding intensity time or reps. Either one is fine if its your goal. When setting fitness goals in the short term make sure theyre not too ambitious while having a set timetable along.
Instead consider performance goals which may help you stay more motivated to exercise not just this year but for the rest of your life. Trying to set good fitness goals without understanding how they are meaningful to you personally is a great way to set weak goals. In my opinion weight loss goals are surprisingly ineffective for sustaining exercise motivation over the long run.
Each of the following fitness goals examples are challenges that target a different aspect of fitness from endurance to flexibility and strength. What is your workout and exercise goal. Make your fitness goals specific measurable attainable and time bound.
For example once you finish a 10k try training for a half marathon. Train for an event theres one exception where shaping up with a deadline can actually come in handy and thats training for a fitness event.
