I know my ideal weight, but what about my goals for the other measurements?
I've done the wrist test for body builders to tell me what my ideal measurements should be for someone with a wrist my size as well as my height, but I don't want to be a body builder, I want to have a lean runners body. I'm not sure what my realistic goals should be or how to go about calculating them. Any tips/ideas?

A lot of this will have to do with your training program and the systems its targeting. And nutrition of course. What program are you using?

I'm using Insanity.

All those measuring procedures use a lot of formulas and assume a lot of things, body time, body composition, so they might not be the most accurate one. It is hard to be able to tell you what is realistic when it comes to body development, I mean without knowing you, knowing your background and exactly what your goals might be.

Insanity will help you develop a great body, lean and efficient. If you want muscle development after that I would recommend looking at other programs like P90x but ideally at Body Beast.

If you want a lean, runners body then you're doing the right program and you should just roll with it until you find the body you want.

I get that, but I'm trying to set the goals in the "progress and goals" section, and I have no idea what to put or how to come up with those numbers, which is the problem I'm having.

I see. My suggestion is to not look for a complicated formula but, rather, to look at your current measurements and enter what seems like a reasonable change up or down depending on your goals. Normally this is the kind of place in the fitness tracker where someone with a 40 inch waist says they want a 34 inch waist, etc.
