I love setting short term goals for my training. Let's leave this topic open to short term goals for fitness not martial skill that can be another topic all together. I have made short term goals in the past and completed them.
The first was doing 10 pullups that was about 5 years ago. Pull ups are my favorite exercise now and I can do 5 sets of 10 no problem.
Dumb bell bench 70 lbs. with each arm did that last year 5 good reps.
One arm chin up was next last winter I did one with each arm.
My new goals are to be able to Squat 170 lbs. and do 2 glute-ham raises by the New Year. I think this will be my hardest goal yet but I think I can do it. The 170 isn't going to be as hard as the glute-ham raises they are the hardest exercise I have ever tried.
These are just a few of mine I have many more that aren't as impressive. Now I would like to hear some of yours. What are your newest goals? What was the hardest one you completed? Have you failed? Do tell! I would love to hear how everyone sets these goals and what they do to reach them.
