A big mistake a lot of folks make who are training for general, “aesthetic”-based fitness goals like fat loss, muscle gain, etc. – is that they set zero performance-based targets.

So – let’s say your main goal is fat loss. Your biggest measurement of progress should be your weight, body fat %, measurements, etc., for sure. But setting performance-based goals for yourself should be a key part of the process as well. You need a way to see if you are getting stronger and making progress in your workout program.

HOWEVER – being specific, and knowing the best way to measure your workout progress, can be tricky. You know that, for example, doing swings with a given weight is getting easier – but are you really getting stronger/getting in better cardio shape/etc.?

Well, we use kettlebell challenge workouts for this exact purpose at my Sacramento, CA boot camp.

Challenge workouts, done somewhat infrequently (every two to four weeks), are a great way to test yourself both physically and mentally, and see how your overall fitness level is progressing.

And I got one for you today that you are going to love!
