I am curious so i thought i'd make this thread. You guys can answer me and put my mind at ease.
I started training may 5th 2008 doing starting strength.
Current stats (pounds) for 5 reps:
bench press: 195
power clean: 135
pull up: additional 60 pounds
dips: additional 85 pounds
My goals are (pounds) for 5 reps:
bench press: 315
power clean: 280
press: 250 pounds
pull up: additional 150 pounds
dips: additional 150 pounds
I am 20 years old. I'm about 9 percent body fat. I have short legs (27-28 inches). I weigh 138 pounds and i am 5 foot 3.
My form for squats/deadlifts is a little tight and i have girlscout grip. I think with proper technique and grip i could add 50 pounds to my squat/deadlift but i obviously have to work on that.
I want to stop at that because my goal is not power lifting but kyokushin and i thought i could use some power. If my numbers go too high i feel i will lose speed/ explosiveness so i think the numbers like that are high enough.
When i hit those numbers i will continue increasing rep but not weight.
So when i hit the 315 bench,for example, i will work on increasing reps and not weight, indefinitely.
Are my goal numbers possible for my height/weight/age? I'm expecting to hit these in a minimum of a year and a half. I'm not expecting to hit them tomorrow lol.
