My three main goals for this year...

** Break the 451 raw dealift record for the 130-145lb class
** Get a 1,000+ total
** Defend my title and win my weight class at the Raw Champs again (would be for the third consecutive year). Also would like to get on the podium and better my 4th place overall from last year.

Squat: at least 220lbs
Deadlift: 330
Benchpress: 140? I really need to work on my bench press technique, that's for sure. And it's sooo uninspiring to se guys race ahead while I'm stuck at 100 lbs.

Overall goal is to qualify for norwegian championships next year. In order to do that I need to hit 65olbs total. I'm at 462 now.

Goals for December 2013: 300/400/500 lbs Bench/Squat/Deadlift

End of 2012: 245/365/460 (end of 2012 lifts)

End of 2011: 200x5/300x5/405x1

Didn't gain a lot of strength in 2012, but I took a few deloads and breaks from the gym, and the last 6 months was slow progress on Wendler's 5/3/1. I'm expecting much better from this year!

Relatively new to lifting, but am on StrongLifts program. I think my 2013 goals are challenging but achievable:

Bench: 200 lbs
Squat: 275 lbs
Deadlift: 350 lbs

Good goals ~ your bench and squat seem really disproportionate though? You're only just benching a little over your bodyweight, but that squat is massive ?!

Are you male or female?

Jan- 50 pushups am & 50pm
Feb- 60 push am & 60pm
Mar- 70 push am/pm & 10 pullups am/pm
......

Every month I up the pushups by 10 and will up the pullups by 5.

I would like to get my bodyfat down, but keep my size and strength.

I want to keep my bench and squat at 315 for more than one rep.

Do you mean me? Lol. If so then yes I am female. I have a really weak bench. :(

Thanks for clarifying. You're a strong girl, keep up the good work. Have you started a training log yet? Would be good to follow along and see what you do in the gym. Cheers MF.
