Ok codgers, how was 2014 for you? My goals shifted dramatically because I joined a gym that has all the strongman equipment an old guy could want and it pained me to see it sit around quietly.
My 2014 goals were:
Get myself under 300lbs, currently 330lbs.”
Bench–I stopped benching because over head pressing is the best thing since sliced bread…and it makes my shoulders ache every time I look at a bench.
Deadlift–soooo close, but the year is not over yet. I bombed out at 385 lat week, but I was a ball of stress wrapped in a bad diet. I think 400 or 405 (cause 4 plates is cool)is still doable in 2014.
Squat–again, I am ignoring the squat right now, but I front squat a lot because it is better for strongman training. I think with some practice 375 is attainable, but I developed some new goals.
Weight–again, so close! I hit 306 during the summer and again in the fall. I got sidetracked because I did my first Strongman competition so I went on a see-food diet to grow as much as I could in the short time I had. I am still the thinnest I have been in a long time, and visibly stronger, so I’ll take it.
New 2014 goals.
135lb OHP–I actually thought this was on my list from last year, I hit it last week…finally.
180lb log clean and press–also recently hit 2 weeks ago.
275lb atlas stone–this would but me on the board in the Masters’ class at the gym. I am waiting to attempt it until I am officially in Master’s…very soon.
Here is the link to the old thread, so, if you’re a long-timer or new to Over 35 crowd, what where your resolutions or goals for 2014, and how did you do?
