Aright guys, its that time again. What are your goals for the new year? Short term, long term, whatever. I’ve heard putting it to paper (or keyboard) actually helps, do I figured this would be as great a place as any. I don’t want to say resolutions cuz they all fizzle out by third week of January, as proved by the the spike and sudden drop in the gym along that time.
Guess I’ll start. I don’t want to restrict this to bodybuilder/lifting numbers only. Go nuts
Short term (6 months or so):
Squat 315 for 5 reps (broken foot and sprained ankle really hindered progress) currently at 250x5
Pull 405 (damn you foot/ankle) current: 365 1RM
Bench 250 (weak I know, but gotta start somewhere) current: 220 1RM
shed some fat, increase my endurance, join an indoor flag football league, take up lacrosse
Long term (by December next year):
squat 350+ (don’t know how much progress is possible, but I’ll try for the most
pull 495 (seems like a huge jump to me, but I think I’m a better puller than squatter)
bench 285 (fingers crossed)
increase weight to 220-230 (currently at 193)
Win my Uni’s Div 1 flag football league haha
Obviously nothing is set in stone, but this is what I want to get. Feel free to share your own (or critique mine, if you feel my goals are too ambitious or not enough).
Have a great new year!
