    Default 2011 lifting goals

    Hi Guys,

    Well its almost the end of another year. Time to reflect on how you went against your 2010 goals and to be bold and set your 2011 goals. Go on record and tell the forum what you're going to achieve next year. We can check back this time in 2011 and see how we all went against our personal goals.

    I'll go first.

    I want to add 20kg to my bench and 40kg to my other lifts. Pretty conservative, but injuries from pushing too hard too fast have caused me to reflect on the pace of growth this old frame can endure. That's 4 PPP cycles with 5kg gains each cycle on bench and 10kg gains each cycle on squats and deads.

    So, I want:

    Squat: 180kg
    Bench: 110kg
    Dead: 200kg

    Ante up boys and girls. What's your 2011 goals?

    Cheers,
    Mike
    Current Lifts: SQ 130 BP 100 DL 175
    PPM Current Cycle: SQ 140 BP 105 DL 190

    I'll compete raw and equipped. Here are my goals for competition lifts@ 120kg.
    Raw (by which I mean belt and wrist wraps only):
    squat: 325
    bench: 235
    deadlift: 320
    t= 880

    Equipped (single ply of course):
    squat: 390
    bench: 290
    deadlift: 320
    t= 1000

    The real trick is staying injury free.
    I only did 2 full comps this year and I am about to do my 3rd bench comp. Next year I'll probably do raw nationals, equipped nationals and 1 international event. I'm undecided abut which one. Maybe open worlds in Nov, where I'll get my butt kicked- possibly world masters, which seems like a cop out in a lot of ways. If had lifted at this years world masters and totaled the same as I did at the nationals (which I think was under par for me) not only would I have won my division, but I would have taken best lifter. However, world masters is like 'last man standing'. World Open I would struggle to get top 5. At this years worlds I would have gone 6th in squat, 4th in bench, 10th in deadlift and 7th overall. However, I think I'm capable of top 3 in squat and bench. To get there I'd need something like a 400 squat and 300 bench.

    2010 goals were not met, due to various excuses (financial and other circumstances / injury).

    2011 goals will probably go as follows:

    Squat: 200
    Bench: 150
    Deadlift: Want 500 pounds, so lets say a nice even 230
    Overhead press: 100

    Apart from the main lifts goals are to be consistent - don't miss a day of lifting and don't fuck up eating due to laziness/convenience. Incorporating mobility work for 10-15min a day (using the mobility work out of the day blog for this, check it out it's good stuff).

    The things I have allowed to hold me back the past couple years are no longer a factor, so it's all on me now.

    Realisticlly, I'd like to go to the nationals again.
    At 82.5
    Squat 180
    Bench 130
    Dead 240

    After this next comp in december, I'm having 2 months off. I would have set higher goals otherwise.

    The deadlift suffered a little after I tore my bicep. I switched over to hook grip and that has taken time to get used to. I suspect that if I switched to sumo in the long run I'd pull more, but my mobility is terrible and as a result my sumo technique makes deadlifting a battle against my body. With hook grip its not just a matter of holding onto the bar- but a lot of power is lost if the bar slips- so grip has been a major priority. I have worked out some great exercises that have helped so hopefully I'll pull more soon.
