Post Your 2012 Goals


#1

I notice we don't have a 2012 thread for next year yet.

My goals are:

Bench 185

DL 350

Squat 300

Achieve perfect form :slightly_smiling:

Do well in my Febuary meet and go to nationals

Lower my A1c to between 5-6

and of course lose 20-30 lbs of fat :stuck_out_tongue:


#2

^^ Sick goals ronda, good luck!

My goals:

Deadlift: 225
Squat: 165
Bench: 135
Add at least 100 pounds to my powerlifting total in a meet.
Gain 10 pounds.
Do a handstand (this has been a goal of mine every New Year's, I never work for it or get it)

Maybe 2012 is my year!

Good luck everyone with your goals.


#3

Free standing handstand or against a wall handstand?


#4

My goals:

Weightlifting wise:
DL: 250
Squat: Being able to do so without knee pain!
Bench: 135

Highland games:
Stone: Get aggressive with the bitch. I want my Open Stone over 30' and my Braemar consistently over 22'
Light weight (14#): 55-60'
Heavy weight (28#): 30'
Light hammer (12#): 75'
Heavy hammer (16#): 60'
Caber: Turn the bitch more often!
Weight over bar (28#): 11'6"-12'

General:
Lean down and maintain weight close to 135#
Take the last exam I need to and apply for my P.Eng.

I know this is a lot to try to get better at at once, but I think I can do it. I'm sooooo close to hitting a lot of those numbers in the games but they're serious benchmarks for the women. Being able to accomplish even one of those would make me happy :slightly_smiling: All of them? Rockstar!


#5

I'm pretty sure I could do a wall handstand so ideally I'd like to do a free standing one. I have the strength to do it but I get freaked out about falling the other way lol


#6

Goals:
Gain the recommended amount of weight through my pregnancy! (25-35lb... leaning more toward the 25 :wink:
Maintain my current fitness level (since I obviously can't progress too much...)
Get plenty of SLEEP!!!!
Start training for my next Figure competition at the end of 2012.

#9

My current goals are more physique oriented than PL oriented so I'm not really sure about 2012 numbers goals. I know what I want to achieve long term, but I'm really just training to maintain strength on the big 3 at the moment.

  1. GFH (get closer to 150 this winter without being any fatter than I already am)

  2. See all 6 of my abs this summer and look freakin' awesome.

  3. Keep up with mobility/prehab.

  4. Do at least 1 PL meet this year.

  5. Current meet bests are 265/135/275. I want something like 300/155/300 (or better yet, 315/170/315) but I'll worry more about that when the time comes.

  6. 185 front squat, 95+ (strict) press.


#10
  1. complete the bicep tendonesis rehab, just about there.
  2. go to the dark side and learn multiply gear.
  3. in the 165's, preferably the 148's with:
    525 squat
    350 bench
    405 deadlift

  4. be a better mom, wife and friend

  5. wrap CBear's knees sooo tight she cries..., what are friends for?

#11

holy sheeeeeet


#12

im pretty sure id apeshit yell and hulk smash things before i cried. crying is something i just don't do.

id rather shit in public.


#13

So I have chosen to switch from the ever popular Facebook and came here. I believe a much healthier choice in going forward in my 2012 goals.

Goals:

Qualify for Olympia again but at a 168 weight class, meaning that I have to lose about 50lbs. Which could bring down my lifts but I feel like it's more important to get my weight under control right now.

DL:400lbs raw

Bench:160lbs raw

Squat: 245lbs raw (improve my form immensely)

I want to try and do at least two competitions before September as well.


#14

Lifting Goals for 2012...
Body Weight to be over 50kg
Bench - at least 45kg
Squat - 70-80kg
Deadlift - 120kg

Compete at local, state and national powerlifting comps including some 3 lift comps (only done single lift comps so far).


#15

DL: 225x3 (I expect this early in 2012)!
BENCH: One plate
SQUAT: 225x3 with perfect form....
OHP: 100LBS

I intend to keep maintaining/gaining/gaining strength til spring.
Diet 2/1 or 3/1 undecided.... cut down tp 135ish 15% whenever I see more abs than jut the obliques...
And then set new goals :slight_smile:

Thats it.

Oh and I wanna meet up with Dasher in 2012!


#16

I'm just making these numbers up but what the hell. Focus will be weighlifting & diving.

Try out a competition at one stage just to see, I'm not going to jeopardise any enjoyment I get from oly lifting though.
Snatch 50kg
C&J 60kg
Squat 90kg
*Get knees in order (need to think this one through)
*Keep shoulder in working order with YTWL's & some pulling exercises

DIVING:
CMAS Rescue Diver
30+ dives
--Lead a few of those
*Back to 40 lengths in the pool by adding an extra length every week

MISC:
Find a lunch time yoga or something class to go to go to once a week
Get more protein in me
Find some time to meditate/visualise & all that stuff to be mentally balanced


#17

bump....

there has got to be some more by now...


#18

20 pounds LBM for 2012.


#19

Drink my coffee black. That's it..fucking intense!


#20

My goals are entirely dependant upon my body parts either fixing themselves (if they're broken) or not getting worse (if they're just gnarly. I don't think I have any body parts that don't give me trouble, joint-wise).

IF my back behaves, I want to pull 120kg. Once I get this goal, I will obviously add to it.

IF I can overcome my squat problem (feeling woozy after a few reps, basically), I would at some point like to squat my bodyweight.

I have no bench goal because my shoulder has been knackered for 20 years and tends to get pissy if I try to bench.

Running goals are entirely dependant upon whether my achilles calms down and my foot problem proves manageable. I would like to do some races, though, and preferably another half marathon. But there are some big ifs there.

Mostly, though, I want to lose some flab and have visible abs by my holiday in June. I don't need the whole sixpack - four will do me. I've never seen the buggers so anything will be a result.
