In this question (How do you motivate yourself to keep exercising?) I read it's good practice to set fitness goals.
Because I kept losing motivation and my goal was just to get more muscle, I wanted to set real measurable goals for my fitness gains.
I'd like some short term goals and 1 long term goal.
I'd like to measure these goals for the first excersize I am doing each day.
- Pull-ups (currently 4 clean reps)
- Bench-press (currently max 60 kg, 5 clean reps)
- Squats (currently max 80 kg, 5 clean reps)
I weigh approx 78 kg and I split my work-out threeway at the moment and my aim is to go too the gym 4 times a week:
Back- biceps chest - tricep shoulder - legs
I am planning to switch these around after 6 weeks of excersize.
Is there a good algorithm to set some goals, so I can stay motivated? (getting married in may, suit will be measured on in april)
