Repost form my log

Short Term ( 6 months):
- BW 175
- Squat 350
- Deadlift 400
- Press 175
- Bench 225

Long Term (12+ months)
- Squat 400
- Deadlift 500
- Bench 300
- Press 200
- Snatch 200
- Clean&Jerk 250

This is Assuming I have no issues the first 6 months... I tore an internal suture or something on monday from picking something off the ground at home which has made benching a pain in the ass, can't get enough air in or arch the back in the movement well enough because the area in the abdominals is sore as hell go figure.

more specifically.... get my dead back to 600#, squat back to 500#, press to 250#, power clean to 315# while maintaining my current level of fitness... those are attainable with my current numbers.

I hope everyone reaches their goals here.

Well seeing as posting here more often is on my to do list.....

Gain some weight - currently 80kg@10-11%BF, 85kg would be good, 90kg would be better!

2xBW Back Squat - 160kg@current BW/180kg if I can hit 90kg
2.5xBW Deadlift (conventional) - 200kg or 225
As close to BW Press as possible - current max is 62.5

Mature muscle-up (currently have kipped ring+bar)

Get out of the gym more - run at the track, rock/tree climb, hit the squash court etc

And yes, add to my measly post numbers! Less lurking, more talking!

Happy new year to all!

Get stronger, heavier and leaner in that order!

1.) Qualify for the English Weightlifting Championships (Quali total for 94kg class: 240kg, current total: 190kg (in training)) -> 50kg improvement, that sounds a lot but i'm still a relative beginner and once i get my legs strong this should be attainable!

2.) Get my squat up: I can currently pretty much clean my FS (109 and 112), I'd like to get that FS to 150-160 by the end of the year.

That's it, just a few goals, best to keep it simple!

Good luck to everyone!

1. Squat 1.5xBW (270-280#)

2. Deadlift: 405; Squat: 315; Bench: 225; Press: 160

My squatting has always sucked. 2010 is the year of the squat.

I started 2009 wanting to squat clean 150 - I got that. Can now do 140 for a triple. I also wanted to snatch 120; not quite there yet as I'm having some technical issues with my pulls - too much loop and hyperextension. But getting close. I Can overhead squat that 120 for sets.


My main goal is to improve my performance in Timbersports, but those goals need to stay internal as no one would truly understand them - times/consistencies/etc in certain events. Lifting has always been a passion. Given the explosive nature of my sport, OL fits perfectly. Just wish I would started this when I was younger.

I have the following things I'd like to accomplish during 2010 from a gym persepctive:
Squat clean : 170 to 180 kilos.
Snatch: 120 to 130 kilos.
Front squat: 210 to 220 kilos
Jerk: 160 to 170 kilos

I currently at 150 to 160 on the squat clean, 110 to 115 on the snatch (power mind you, having problems mastering the squat snatch), about 180 to 190 on the front squat (but can back squat between 250 and 270 - so it's a matter of time), and can behind neck jerk the 150 to 160 right now very easy - just got to do it in front. So all should be attainable.

From an overall health perspective, keep my weight under 112 kilos. Doing a darn fine job of that even through the holidays. Part of me wants to think about dropping down to 105 and doing the Master's next year at York during November. That's a very sick part of me too. I was 130 kilos about three years ago, so I'm very very pleased with the weightloss I've accomplished. The even cooler thing is I actually feel stronger now than I did when I was a cow. Well, a fatter cow.

All the best,
Arden

Colling, are you 285 at 13 percent bodyfat? Holy Crap - that's NFL caliber right there - talking defensive end. I'm surprised you're not lifting a lot more than you do because at that size you have a ton of Lean Body Mass. When I was that weight I was a good mid 20s (but I'm only 5'10ish). I'm down to 245 now and I'm guessing I'm around 15% on the low side. And I'm very lean for a fat guy. I'm inspired.

All the best,
ARden

Body weight snatch
200lb clean and 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.

All the best,
