Anyone have any specific or interesting training goals they are working towards this new year?
Hitting a 1-rep max deadlift with two times of my bodyweight (74kg)
Current 1-rep max deadlift is 137.5kg
not just a training goal, but an overall one that I’ve been working on for a few months now: work more with my body and not against it; identifyind and minimizing stress factors, improving sleep quality, paying more attention to my own needs and increase performance. 2023 was a disaster in terms of me time (every weekend was scheduled for social obligations for over half a year, no vacation) - that has to change.
I’d like to learn to do archer pushups and maybe even pull-ups, as well as be better at eating clean, and maybe even try batch cooking, the idea of which goes very much against my ways Each of these a very tough goal for me
That should definitely change I feel like I need to move more towards you, I’m the complete opposite-everything for me is spontaneous and last minute I’m sure there is a happy balance there in the middle somewhere
Ah nice goals Sofia!
Have you seen this before?
Sounds like the middle between us would be more desirable. A bit of structure and just as much room for flexibility.
For me only goal is to stay consistent all year long, everything else should follow I believe.
Yes, I want to do the 10k run (if covid doesn’t strike my goals, it should be very doable), be able to do at least 15 pushups perfectly and just like Sofia, I also want to be able to do a pull-up at the end of the year.
Apart from that, try to eat more protein consistently and listen to my body more, if I’m really sick (and should stop training) or just having allergies (not needing a break, or just a lighter session)
Dragonfly’s are something I’d like to master this year. I’m finding that I can’t just jump in and start doing sets of them like my coach is asking!
sort of on and off topic I guess
My 2023 goal was to get stronger and add 4kg. I only managed to add 2kg so I am disappointed and wondering if I should be doing things differently
I have seen progress but very slow; like I could not do any diamond pushup and now I can do 2
So my 2024 goal is either to get stronger and add 4kg (again) or to learn to set more realistic goals
(I started at 53kg in end of January 2023; I am now at 55kg ; for 173cm…)
@Mat-t, personally, I’ve got a very similar goal, though I’m not fixtaing myself on one specific number. I “just” tell myself that I want to improve my weight (in my case gain weight) and try to do so by trying to eat right and work out.
In my case, I haven’t been able to gain over 3kg/year (as far as I recorded it, and only counting from when I started doing Freeletics, August 2022), but see/saw gradual improvements nonetheless.
Progress is progress, no matter how little! If you see it like that, it becomes easier, in my opinion.
Thanks @lajawi for sharing your experience and for your kind words !
For me my objectives are:
1- be able to do a few reps of 20 kg double dumbbell bench press, double dumbbell shoulder press and double dumbbell squat
2- to be able to run 10 km
3- master a skill. Full hanging leg wipers or One handed pushup
My goal is to get 8 hours sleep a night - presently averaging 5. Too tired to make good choices or to keep to a good workout routine
why don’t you give the option to connect freeletics with fitbit!!! unfortunately nothing happens when I connect health connect, however I mainly use fitbit and I would like it to pair with freeletics. I never fill those 17 minutes a day like this
