glad i found this post. i was just coming up with goals to keep me motivated for next year. haven't been doing this for very long, but i think these are doable. my goal is to complete these all on the same day-- first saturday in november (too much snow after that)
bench current 435 ------> 450
dead 525 ------> 600
squat 425 ------> 500
bike 100 miles
run 5 miles
for me, i have never competed, just lift in my barn, the fun/challenge will be to balance my workouts so i can do all.
have been lifting for about a year and a half, and at age 50, can't imagine i have many more years of increasing my weight.
looking forward to this-- and seeing how well the rest of the nation does meeting their goals
