    A year ago today

    One year ago today I was 282 pounds and miserable. I took some pictures and made a goal.

    Bench - 165
    Squat - 235
    Dead - 270

    282 From the front October 29th 2010

    282 From the back October 29th 2010

    October 29th 2011 I'm 220 pounds and I've never been happier. I started by running to the gym everyday and cutting back on what I was eating. I dropped a good bit of weight pretty quick and just went from there.

    bench - 255
    Squat - 340
    Dead - 375

    220 from the Front October 29th 2011

    220 from the Back October 29th 2011
    Lifts @ 6'2 235lbs
    Bench: 165/285/330 (11/22/11)
    Squat: 235/405/440 (2/2/12)
    Dead: 270/500/440 (1/26/12)
    Total: 1190 lbs

    As of right now, all my long term goals are strength related. Basically within a year I want to have at least a 1.5:1 strength to weight ratio on all my core lifts: bench, squat, and dead lift. However I've already achieved that on my dead lift and squat, so I'll be shooting for 2:1 ratio on those two.

    The way I figure it with my current weight that would put me at a 330lb bench, 440 squat and 440 deadlift. I've yet to meet a person that puts up numbers like that who doesn't look huge, jacked, swole, beastly etc which is why all my goals are related to strength and not physique/weight.

    Its a big goal I know, but no one got anywhere dreaming small.
