In no particular order:

200lb bodyweight, with no more fat % than I am now 1285, ~13%)
350lb squat, 325 x 5
420lb DL
Body weight snatch
200lb clean and jerk
240lb jerk
165lb shoulder press, x 125% pp, x 135% pj

25 dead hang pullups
60 consecutive true pushups(slow and steady)
Front lever
Handstand

Brown belt in karate

Continue to work on cardio...need some benchmarks for this that don't include running. Perhaps 50 burpees in a row, 5 min intense rope work, something...

Get into sandbag work. Get a BW, 1/2, and 1/4 bodyweight bag.

DVS beat me to the punch. Why drop weight and stay at the same BF%? Not knocking you, Colin, just curious (and jealous)...

My 2010 goals:

Bodyweight: 200 (should be there by the end of Jan)
Squat: 450 (currently around 400)
Press: 200
Bench: 260
Deadlift: 540

Get 20 dead-hang pull ups

Attain reasonable proficiency on the oly lifts (bodyweight snatch, 1.25 bw c&j)

Regain my 36" vertical (slow lifts and chubbiness have it down a good bit) and start dunking on people.
