Are These Goals Realistic?


#1

Hey guys i have set some goals for the end of my junior year of high school and i would like to know if they seem realistic. For some background information, i turned 16 at the beginning of this month, im ~5'8/9, i weigh ~160 lbs, and i have been lifting for about 3 years.

I have two "sets" of goals. the first set are my short term goals which i would like to have acheived within the next three months. My second set is my long term, end of school year goals. I will also post my current bests for these lifts as well.

1) Squat- short term goal- 315 x 5 reps, 365+ by end of year
Current bests- 315x 3 reps, 275x5 reps, 255 x 10 reps

2) Pull Up- BW+ 75 lbs x 3+, BW+ 100 lbs for reps
Current bests- 60 lbs x 3, 70 lbs x 1

3) Military press- 115 x 3, 135 x 3
current best- 105 x 3

4) Bench Press- not too concerned with this to be honest, 185 x 5, 225 x 2+
current best- 185 x 2, 175 x 3, 165 x 5

5) DeadLift- 315 for reps, 365+
current bests- 315 x 1, 275 x 3

6) DB Row- 100 lbs x 5 decent reps, 120 lbs x 5
Current bests- 110 x 3, 100 x 5 ( i kinda used my whole body on them- the form wasnt perfect)

7) BB Row- 185 x 3 decent reps, 225 x 2+ reps.
Current bests- 185 x 3 (with straps)

8) Power Clean- 185 x 1, 225 x 1
Current bests- 175 x 1 (with straps)

Any comments? Thanks in advance

I suspect that if you overeat for 3 weeks, you'll make all your short term goals in that time. Keep eating big and you'll reach your long term goals in 3 months. Dunno if you have to stay in a certain weight class for any school sports, but food is your ally in this case. At your age, you have the hormonal environment to gain strength very quickly.

Hellz yeah. Real as real can be man. But it won't happen unless you bust your ass, eat, rest, and repeat.
