Well... what the hell are YOU going to do this year?!

I'm going to strict press 200 overhead, close the number three COC, squat 375, get up to a lean 205 and lift a hex blob.

Write something down fuckers! Make it official! Stand up and declare "I AM GOING TO GET SHIT DONE THIS TIME AROUND THE SUN! AND THIS IS THE OFFICIAL LIST OF THE SHIT I WILL DO:"

I'll even elaborate on how I am going to accomplish these things:
200 overhead - just going to keep doing what I'm doing: high volume, high frequency, low rate of failure on overhead lifts. It's working so far and I like it.

COC 3 - more high volume. 40-90 closes of a gripper in 20 minutes per session. I'll increase the difficulty of a gripper as I see fit by grinding the handles. This is contrary to the way most people say to train on grippers (heavy overcrushes and timed holds and such), but it's worked well in the past and a little consistancy should yeild promising results.

375 squat - simply enough: more time squating. My deadlift seems to go up despite neglect. But my squat needs some TLC. More time under the bar.

weight gain - gtgtgfh (grease the groove to get fucking huge).

the blob - after the blob I have my sights set on the inch, but first thing's first. gonna drill a hole in my block weights and bolt a plate to them. loadable blobs will go a long way and ease the burden on my wallet.
Turn Pro in Boxing and hit mufuckas so hard part of their SOUL dies. And if they can outlast the damage, the pain, the punishment, they'll be completely at a loss for what to do to slow me down. To the degree where my opponents will need to hit me with a Nuclear Warhead.
deadlift 550 lb and squat 600 and bench 400
I'm going to hit 405 on the bench. Thirty tough lbs. to go. I'm also going to concentrate more on MMA and shoot for entering some kind of competition by year end. Finally, I'm going to enter some sort of mini triathlon if I can ever learn to swim efficiently.
I want to find a nice girl. Don't know how i'll do it though.
Improve flexibility - Torque the shit out of my body in inventive ways (probably utilizing pullys)
Neck strength - Spend lots of time on my head
This is probably the best thread I've seen here in a while, good idea Urban.

It's my final year of uni, if I'm going to continue weightlifting while working a fulltime job I will have to stop being a shitkicker, for that reason I'm setting a goal of a 300kg total (most likely 135 snatch and 165 clean & jerk), at a solid 94kg bodyweight so I stop looking like such a lanky bastard. Aims in the assistance lifts are clean pulls at 210-220kg, snatch pulls 170kg, back squat 210kg. To achieve this I must really dedicate myself to the training, both in and out of the gym, no skipped meals, taking care of injuries and playing it smart instead of doing what I did this year, hurting myself and undoing all the good work I'd put in.
PULLDOWN 240 X6 - i weigh 205 pounds, can do 15 pullups and and 6 weighted pullups +45 pounds. kind of a gay goal, but i have been doing these lately to switch things up and they are adding some new size to my back.

BB BENCH 260 X6, 300 X1- i can curently do 235 x5, so should not be that hard, just have to stay healthy.

DB BENCH 105 X6- again defnitely reachable, currently 100 X 5

close grip bench 220 X 6- currently 185 x6.

close COC # 2
develop better CARDIO
become a better swimmer because i swim like a rock
improve boxing skills
develop a groundgame
and hopefully i have rehabbed my core enough to eventually be able to DL/SQUAT again
Most important: gain weight...even if its a slow approach.

Bench over 200 lbs. (225 would be nice) PR is currently 180.
Squat more than I deadlift..... PR DL is currently 280....want to reach around the 350s)
Hang a 10 lbs. plate off my penis.
Goals for 2006:
* DL 405, SQ 315, BB 315
* Increase cardio to prepare for JJ training (one next item is done)
* Finish master's program (April)
* Close #2 CoC with both hands (@!$ finger injury, wigthout it I may have had it on the right)
* Drop my gut off somewhere - get down to 250

For the most part I'm gonna be working on OH pressing this year aiming towards a 180 lb. OHP. Hopefully in the process I will remedy my vagina shoulder problem as well.

I've also decided to bulk back up towards a bodyweight of 195-210 lbs. Training more frequently and eating big is my usual approach to this however this time around I will be doing a tonne of conditioning work as well (tabatas, running etc.) so I'll have a lot more room to eat more!
what do you OHP right now sonny? at what bodyweight? you're talking about strict press right?

Yeah, strict press. My max is a pitiful 135 lbs. right now and I'm around 180 lbs.

I'm not sure what the hell is going on but I've been having shit luck these past few months in terms of injuries/illness. I try to just buck up and go for it but there are days where I just can't. I'm hoping 2006 will be a better year for me in general.
