    We all have our own goals whether you are a powerlifter or weigtlifter or what have you. Knowing that this varies from person to person with so many variables it is hard to really say when you have reached maximum potential. So I'm wondering what you natural guys have as short-term or long-term goals. I'd like to know weight and goals for lifts.

    I'm curious because I think guys at my gym who I thought were natural may be using gear and this has changed what I think I may be able to accomplish myself.

    Weight 270 goal 240

    All raw lifts

    Squat
    short term: 525
    Lifetime: at least 600

    Bench
    short term: 325
    Lifetime: 405

    Deadlift
    short term : 570
    Lifetime : at least 600

    My short term goals I'm sure are attainable barring injuries. What about you?

    Lifetime results? 240/150/240 (in kilos), while hovering around 100kg BW would be nice. I'm realising I'm just not built for a triple BW DL. MMMV, of course.

    Currently 98kg BW, 210/132.5/210 with the bench and DL finally moving.

    I weigh about 290, my all time lifts are 465 squat, 535 deadlift, 355 bench. I'd like the squat to be around 550, 600 deadlift and a 405+ bench. I'd also like to lose 30lbs. I know people on roids who are my weight routinely bench over 500, squat and deadlift 800+, but I don't care enough to break the law and compromise my health in order to hit those numbers.

    I should be able to achieve that, and be able to cut to 155

    I've no real life time goals. I never thought I'd get to where I am strength wise.

    My sort of medium term goals are to

    Squat 500/230kg
    Bench 400/ 180kg
    Deadlift 600/ 270kg.

    I'm hoping to get close to them by the end of next year( squat sooner more than likely) and then I'm not sure after that.

    A 3 times bodyweight dead and 2.5 times bodyweight squat at 95-100kg. Is that achievable? I'm not really sure.
