    Usual New Years Resolution Thread

    So what you guys going to do or not do this year?

    - Gonna get to 10% BF one more time in my life
    - On my 35th BDAY want to bench 405, squat 405/10 ATF, like to do 12 wide grip chins. Did this when I was 25, but kind of had some back issues and career stuff.
    - Actually do a cut seriously
    - Stop half arsing my cardio
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    I resolve to keep doing what I've been doing.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Deadlift 500.

    Bench, oh, I don't know, 340 maybe.

    Box squat 350.

    Stop being such a porker (I don't know how realistic that is in light of my other goals).


    Bill, I had no idea you were such a jacked mofo.

    Get down to 15% bodyfat (which would probably put me at about 210-215 pounds or so)

    Bench - 405
    Squat - 500+
    Dead - 500+

    Work harder in every aspect of my life. Every day you can improve, and if you can't/don't then you should just stay in bed.

    Hmmm..I was actually just thinking about writing these goals down somewhere.. So, let's see...
    By this time next year I hope to be sitting at about 165 lbs @ 8%BF and hope to have my lifts at about:
    Bench-250x1
    Squat-350x1
    Dead-400x1

    Very doable IMO considering the progress I've been making recently.
    Age: 20
    Height: 5-9
    Weight:~160 @ 13-15 bf%?....starting figure after nearly a year of battling CFS/mono...so not too bad imo.

    Keep bulking, but keep it under 300, max (less than 1.5 pounds gained per week).
    Deads - 450 - 500
    Squat - 350 - 400
    Bench - 275 - 300
    MORE IMPORTANTLY - Keep hitting my weekly and monthly diet/lifting goals, and DON'T INJURE MYSELF by OVERTRAINING.

    Get real close to finishing school.
    Pay off credit card debts.

    I don't really make new years resolutions, but here are my short/long term goals.

    - Get hired on a full-time fire dept.
    - Start my own renovation/framing company after finishing school
    - Find a women that's not an immature idiot whose only ambitions in life are to get drunk this friday
    - Get up to a fairly lean 250lbs.
    - Grow half an inch so I'll be 6' instead of 5'11.5"

    body wise

    get myself to 220 and under 10% with some visable abs for the first time in my life

    get my bench over 400 once again

    get my squat and deadlift back in the 600's and or workout poundages in the 500's


    get sexier than ever


    personal wise:

    get myself on my feet

    finish this probation and pay off all my court fines

    become self sufficient monetary wise by the end of summer and move out of the parents house

    get my career started in some set pathway, and i think that begins today with accepting a sales job at a local gym, start here for expereince, then just let it grow and go where it may
