#1

id like to know everyones goals they want to achieve the remainder of the year. also post your weight class and current lifts

right now im 260lbs and current lifts
bench: 335 (sad i know)
deadlift: 585
squat: 405 (also sad lol)

goals
bench: 405
deadlift: 615
squat: 495


#2

To total 2000 raw and drug-tested (USAPL) before I am 40. I think this is reasonable if I can avoid a catastrophic injury.


#3

185lb
2 yr working out
1.25 yr powerlifting

squat-345 going for 405 by the end of winter
bench-285, going for 315 by Christmas
deadlift-435, going for 495 by mid spring


#4

I weighed in at 234.4 pounds at my last meet, putting me in the 110 kg class. I squatted 500, benched 325, and deadlifted 575 raw. My best gym lifts are a 600 lb squat with chains, 350 lb two board press , and 605 reverse band deadlift

My next big meet will be in early December and my goals are a 600 lb squat and deadlift and a 400 lb bench. I also want to bump my body weight up to 250+ lbs. Merry Christmas to me!


#5

Nice man similar to my goals we can do it


#6

At 208 lbs right now, going to compete at 198 or 220...

Current lifts:
Squat: 420
Bench: 335
Deadlift:440

By years end I want a 385 bench, squat 480, and deadlift 540. I'll be just as happy with a 1400 raw total however i can get it. Its a fairly lofty goal, but I think i'll be able to hit it.


#7

Mark Bell told me I should aim for 750/500/625 for my next meet. I'm at 201 bodyweight... Those numbers would be done in gear. hah

Current best lifts are 705/451/605


#8

5'11", 220
I just joined a PL gym last week, having my 4th workout monday.

My immediate goals:
-DL 500+, I recently did a 450 single in the spring
-Correct my bench form so my shoulder doesn't hurt when I go heavy
-Bring my squat up to a respectable number. I haven't back squatted in a while but I did a front squat triple of 265 recently

The gym I joined has a history of producing ridiculous numbers, and the owner/coach told me that he would be disappointed if I didn't squat 700 in a year. I'm a PL newb. Is this a realistic goal or is he trying to excite me so I'll keep paying?


#9

I hope you do it and I'm not going to be a ney sayer but your going to have to work your ass off. That's a lofty goal in my opinion.

Then again you wrote that he said he "would be disappointed if you didn't squat 700" not " You will squat 700 under my tutelage"..big difference. fuck it I say give it hell, you'll be stronger regardless


#10

That's how he phrased it to me initially, like the ball is in my court and the only thing keeping me from that number is myself. I haven't taken that number as my own goal yet, I guess I'm skeptical. Maybe 600 is more attainable? But, apparently disappointing.


#11

I have a raw push/pull meet on Nov 13. I will compete at a soft 275 and I will hit a 440 bench and 575+ deadlift.
My current meet pr's are 425/550 in Feb '10. By Feb '11 I will have my squat ready to go and compete in my first full power meet.


#12

173 lbs

Triple bw DL before 2011.


#13

I will be shooting for two separate things:

Raw- (Sep.18)- 450 Bench, 525 Deadlift at a sloppy 309 and 42 years old 100% Raw in East Syracuse NY

Equipped (Feb 12th) 560 Bench, 580 Deadlift, 650 Squat at a ripped 308 (lol) and still 42 years old


#14

haha i'm not an internet-number boy but here it goes so i can remember my goal.

i have a national bench meet in mid september, this is mexico so it isn't very competitive.planning to win at a bodyweight of 169 i want to bench at least 370.

i want to squat 485-500 by december.


#15

you can do it!!

man i was training a 15 year old boy and the son of a bitch has already outsquatted me!! hes only 15 =S

you can get the 700!!


#16

for may, in lbs
squat 440
bench 275
dead 551
at 198lbs bodyweight.
currently 308/242/408


#17

lol anyone here who lies about their numbers is only fooling themselves but i dont think anyone here is an Internet Number Boy. this thread isnt meant for anyone to try to impress anybody its just goal setting.


#18

18yrs old
5'9 - 164lbs

I'm wondering how much weight i need to be lifting on these three lifts in order to simply compete in a powerlifting contest.


#19

....just compete.


#20

The difference between "compete" and be "competitive" is the key. I don't expect to win anything in 3 weeks I just want to compete in high socks and a singlet. We can all compete that's the fun of it.
