This is my first post, although I have been lurking for quite a while.
Started lifting about 8 weeks ago, and last night I hit the first target I set myself, and was so excited about achieving it that I thought I would find out what all my fellow beginners had set themselves as goals in the gym, and whether they have achieved it.
The goal I set myself when I started was to be able to deadlift over 300lbs for reps. Last night I hit 5 reps with 308, and am really happy.
I know thats not much weight compared to many on this site, but it was a big milestone for a fat, 30 something who last picked up a weight when he was 19!!
