    2020 "Get In Shape" Workout Goals Thread


    Simple one for me again: 350 hours of exercise. That's 6 days a week for an hour a day, plus a little extra to round it up and make it interesting.

    I need to give this some more thought, but at a minimum I have three more KOMs on the roads up Winter Hill to pick off, and I want to improve my time on Greylock again - my bro's Strava PR wasn't a max effort attempt but I'm only about 1:10 off him now, so maybe breaking 53 minutes is a good target. I also want to take some time off my Lanesboro side PR, but I need to go back and try to estimate what a reasonable goal would be there since I haven't ridden it hard since I started on the North Adams side.

    Poser alert.

    Only weaklings who don't listen to Manowar draw a distinction between "areas that are the gym" and "areas that are not the gym".

    True brothers of metal who recognize the power of steel know that the entire world is your gym.

    I can't find the video of Manowar weight lifting backstage on a green room leather couch right now, but it's definitely out there.

    Realistically, I just want to keep my current gym schedule (3 times a week) and not have my diet get any worse than it currently is. Doing that, I should be able to clock over 600 miles run for the year. With my upcoming move, ideally, I can make it to the gym every other day, and get my shoulder press sets up (plateaued at 30lbs/arm for 30 reps), plus start alternating between upper body and core/other leg groups besides quads

    Any weight/fat I lose, and any muscle I put on is better than where I was at the start of the year, and I'm not looking for perfect, just being better is the main goal.

    First thing's first: Exercise sucks. Balls.

    I decided last year that, on Black Friday, I would finally get an elliptical. I'm 50, and it's about fucking time I realized that I need some exercise.

    I hate it. I really do. But, I've been getting on it almost everyday. Today was a personal best to 2.5 miles in 20 minutes with a varying degree of resistance.

    Oh, my goal for 2020? Don't die on the elliptical. Outside of that, just keep pushing my limitations.

    I've failed the goals I've posted every year I so far.

    Still I could have the same goals as before:

    Take part in some tournaments
    Play regularly

    Run at least once a week
    5k under 20 minutes (PR 20:08)
    10k under 45 minutes (PR 45:18)

    Get back into the routine of going to the gym at least twice a week. Have had a bit of a break from this since September, but luckily haven't completely lost it. Goals could be to bench 100 kg again, squat 3x5 with 120 or so and deadlift something a bit more than the squat. Back when I started doing proper leg-workouts, I could squat a lot more than deadlift, now I've reversed that at least which I think is good.

    Cycling - cycle to work 95 % of the time, go on some cycling trip in the summer.
