    Default Fitness Challenges Suggestions

    I have been training for a while now and I am getting bored at the moment, I need something to break things up for me a bit.

    So I am looking at some challenges to do. By challenges I mean things to achieve that would appear to be impressive tasks.

    Was thinking stuff along the lines of the following:

    - Body weight bench presses for reps ie bench pressing your body weight.....what would be a good number to aim for?

    - Body weight Squats ie no weights....what would be a good number to aim for?

    - Body weight squats (with body weight weights on bar)...what would be a good number to aim for?

    - Full military style push ups....again what would be an impressive number?

    Any other challenges/tasks people know of.

    I did that one years ago, can't actually remember if I made 100 in ten minutes, I will add it to my list....I hate burpees, but that probably means I should be doing them.

    I remember Neil Gardner used to do some crazy crazy workouts for his birthday treat each year, on which real sticks out was something like bodyweight deadlifts for sets of 10 reps for whatever his bday was, i think at the time he was turning 42, so 42 sets of 10 reps at his bodyweight of about 85kg at the time i think.

    Bw on the bar for 50 reps is a decent mark to aim for in terms of squats. You could probably halve the reps for bench?

    I was thinking about something to do with age as well... Could be easy when you're in your prime but gets a lot harder as you get older
