I like training towards reaching certain goals rather than just training for the sake of training. It makes it easier for me to try getting into shape doing that.
For the lower body, I have some concrete goals like doing a 5k in less than 20 minutes and doing 100 burpees in less than eight minutes. However, I am not sure what to aim for in the case of the upper body. I have access to rowing machines and will soon also have access to battle ropes. I also have access to pull-ups and dips bars.
What are some great goals I can aim to achieve for my torso and arms?
