Hit my first 600lb squat (272.5kg) late last July. It happened a lot sooner than I was expecting. Next landmark goal is 300kg (660lb), all going to plan it’ll happen early next year perhaps and then onto 310-320kg (685-705lb) by the end of the year at my last world champs as a junior in Vegas in '09.
The immediate goal’s 285kg (630lb) at my next meet in November.
Hit my first 180kg (400lb) bench in comp this year in January. Followed it up with 190kg (420lb) in July. If everything goes perfectly, 200kg (440lb) will go in November. That would be a MASSIVE achievement. As for next year… who knows. 220kg (485lb) maybe?
Deadlifts… my downfall. Still haven’t pulled a PR since November '07 where I did 250kg (550lb), tho I did do 260kg (575lb) in the gym last May. My deadlift training’s been pretty rubbish for the latter half of the year due to an injury, so I’d be happy with a modest PR this time out.
260kg would be more than enough. My first 600lb pull should happen early next year, and then maybe onto 280-285kg (615-630lb) later in the year. The day I pull 300kg I’ll be a happy man. It’s probably gonna take a loooong time to get there, but I know it’ll come.
Right now the most important goal for me is to break the IDFPA junior 100kg (220lb) total record. It’s 750kg (1655lb) at the moment, and I’m gunning for 752.5kg (1670lb) next March/April, hopefully in the form of 290/202.5/260. It’s stood since 1998, so to break it would be amazing.
Next year’s my last year as a junior lifter so I’d like to put up a really big total. Maybe move up to 110kg/242lb and go for the big 800kg (1765lb). All the numbers listed are in single ply gear and drug free.
Ultimately, who knows… maybe 375/272.5/320 at 110??
