    What are your goals?

    Fitness goals, pure and simple. What are your goals or why do you keep active?

    I'll post mine once there's been a few responses

    Explosiveness for sport, injury prevention, some level of endurance (however with focus on strength I don't have great endurance, but enough to get me through any sport I play). Otherwise generally maintaining a reasonable level of strength so I can manage odd jobs like lifting heavy things about the house and garden.

    Also countering my desk job.

    I did a cut and body weight stuff for a few months early in the year.

    Then did hypertrophy for the past couple months to build a bit of mass.

    Now switching to full body split + some hiit to build endurance before having a crack at CrossFit next month.

    I like to switch things up to keep interested.

    Put on some lean muscle - work on explosiveness and flexibility. Work through my current tennis elbow issue

    now that I'm over 30 most of my goals have changing from strength to longevity, social, skill. I don't really have any number goals, just tuning over time.

    I would really like to get back to 8% (who wouldn't) so I'm going to pursue that more when work dies down.

    right now I'm doing (perfect world):

    20min commute on the bike to work,

    1 set of combat rope every hour at the office (I have a combat rope at my desk I like to smash when I'm sitting too long)


    When I get to gym:

    10min bag work warm up (usually I will pick a kickboxing combo and just work on it over the week)
    3 upper body sessions a week
    3 lower body sessions a week (I do a variation of Eric Helm's advanced bodybuilder which is 45min-1hr)
    1-2 yoga session (before/after weights)
    1 dancing session (before/after weights)

    2 driving range session
    2 meditation sessions

    this is vastly different to my early-mid 20's of just 100% weights.

    I'm trying to keep on top of the gym, but have just changed to a senior position with travel which is making it very difficult. I know it's a matter of priority but still trying to get into a routine while being in different cities and planes is tough.

    I've got a couple of goals:
    -Run a half-marathon in October (I've run marathons before but have lost fitness now)
    -2 intense weight sessions a week
    -3 moderate sessions a week (running/gym/outdoors/biking/etc)

    I'll increase the moderate sessions to proper running training in a month or so.

    It doesn't seem that ambitious now looking at Timmi!

    I'm built like a string bean personally.
    So, this year I'm focussing on sport (football/soccer) while wanting to run a full marathon. I ran a half in 2017 so I figure this is my best time to do a full.

    From next year, I'll be hitting the gym for mass gains
