Setting achievable targets is an amazing way to keep you on the right track.

When setting your fitness goals, you need to take into consideration three separate targets. The primary goal should be your weekly goal; this goal should include things like, the number of times you want to exercise in the week, the intensity of those workouts, and slight adjustments to your diet. When starting for the first time, you should be sure to set goals that aren’t going to be very tough, it isn’t possible you’ll be able to jump into working out 2 hours a day, 6 days a week. During your first week, you should try for 2 or 3 days in the week, 10 to 20 minutes per day. If after the first week you notice this too easy, adjust to what you think you could deal with, but don’t attempt rushing into it because you will be far more likely to fail.

Your monthly goal should be the second goal. This involves something connected to your exercises, something physical you’d like to accomplish, be it an increase in muscle size, or being able to do more reps, or being able to properly perform a new variation. This type of goal is your monthly goal. You might want to wait to set this goal after your first week so you’ll have a better idea of what you can do, and what you should be able to do within one month. Remember to be realistic, you are not going to be able to perform pistol squats just after a month, a decent goal would be something like, being able to do 50 push-ups, or 15 pull-ups without rest. You will be surprised that, as long as you set a reachable goal, you will possibly achieve it sooner than you expected on your first month, this is usually referred to as “nooby gains”, appreciate them.

Lastly, the long-term goal. This goal would be the determining factor for whether bodyweight training is okay for you. This goal should be thought of prior to committing to any program/routine. What is it that you want to achieve from working out? Do you just want to look good in a bathing suit and fit in a t-shirt? Or do you want to be able to go rock climbing, and do other extreme sports. Do you want to be more flexible and active than you have been before? Or do you want to be capable of lifting heavy things and compete in gym Olympics. If you just want to look good, consider some “biotastic” work outs. If you want to lift heavy things and compete in gym Olympics, then I suggest you consider a solid strength building barbell program. If your long-term objective is to break open many of the “limits” of your body that you’ve lead yourself to believe then bodyweight training is right for you. Once you know what type of training is best for you, you should then think, “what do I want to be capable of doing in 6 months?”. This will vastly differ for each person, but ask yourself what you want to be capable of doing. Unless you are very weighty, I don’t think your objective should be “lose 30 pounds” or whatever of the sort. If your objective is to achieve strength, then your goal should be something like, “be able to do at least 5 reps of pistol squats”, or “be able to do no less than 3 one-handed push-ups”.

This will differ for everybody given their present physical condition and their personal body. You won’t be able to find a universal answer of what you are capable of in 6 months. If you get a personal coach, he/she can give you a good idea of what you may be able to achieve for yourself, but that is totally up to how devoted you are, your diet, and your genetics.
