    Default Long term strength and physique goals

    As a bit of a follow up from the You, on reflection thread, I thought it might be interesting to see what people's ultimate goals are when it comes to the gym.

    My long term goals would be:

    Physique: 95kg lean (sub 10%)

    Strength: - 4 plate bench (180kg)
    - 5 plate squat (220kg)
    - 6 plate dead (260kg)

    I am not as fussed about strength as I am about looking imposing, but who knows, after dedicating this year to predominantly powerlifitng, I might have a different view on things by the end of the year!

    So what are you long term goals?
    Before I started training: 60 something kgs
    Long term goal: 90-95kgs lean/ripped (5-8%bf)

    2013 goals - Bring up weaknesses, get to high 90's with a respectable level of bodyfat (sub 12%).

    I would be happy with squatting 1.5 times my bodyweight, putting my bodyweight overhead (doesn't have to be a strict press), and deadlifting twice my bodyweight, while still being able to run 5km in under 30'00".

    I am not too fussed about my exact build at that time, provided I am over 80kg and with a waist under 90cm.

    90kg Lean, and I'd reassess from there. Strength wise, 200kg deadlift, 120kg bench, squat 160kg. I'll get all of those in the next year hopefully.
    Bench - 110kg Deadlift - 190kg Squat - 140kg
    Goals - BP - 115 DL - 200kg Squat - 150kg

    Squat - Get over 200kg

    Bench - Get it relative to my squat and deadlift. Which means well over 100kgs.

    Deadlift - Get over 250kg.

    Physique - As a young guy i suppose it would be nice to be as lean as possible, but I am happy with increasing my strength. One goal at a time. I like Marko's point of view on goals, and setting small goals, such as the 11 week goals of PPP rather than big ones. But it is good to have your eye on a long term goal or prize!

    But what about your ULTIMATE goals? That is the point of this thread! We all have short term goals, but what do you ultimately, eventually hope to achieve? Surely you aren't going to stop in the next year?

    I agree 100%, set short term achieveable goals. Achieving them keeps you motivated. But at the same time, it is nice to have something that you are ultimately working towards. Setting small goals to achieve the bigger goal

    How much you weighing now mate? Just looking at your sig, bench looks totally dwarfed by your other lifts. Judging purely on your other lifts, I would think you should easily be able to get up to a 130kg bench or so in a small number of years, add a few kgs on the others and you will pretty much be there already!

    My goals by the end of 2011 (thats long term for me lol).

    Squat: 180
    Bench: 150
    Dead: 250

    I want to be 105kg at about 14% bf.

    I think they are doable (providing i dont get injured) with the only struggle being the Squat.
    Best Lifts = 195kgSQ 142.5kgB 230kgDL

    BW = 100.8kg

    Coming in at around 86-87kg @ ~16% BF (some pics in my log). Not too sure about BF% though.

    But yer, stupid bench press, upper body isn't my forte. It seems to be on the rise though.

    To be honest, this is more of a medium term goal, could achieve it in a 2 years provided I stay injury free. I just want to go as close to my genetic potential as I possibly can. If that means 700kg+ total then so be it
