    long term goals

    All right I've been at the bbing thing for a year now and I'm finally starting for formulate some long term goals. Let me start out with some stats:

    I'm 42
    5' 7" 145 lbs 14% bf
    31" waist

    in the past year I went from a flabby 142 to 138 at 13% bf the first 3 months and then back up to 145 at 14% bf and I've got some muscle to show for it.

    I'm thinking my ultimate goal is 165lbs at 10% bf. Is this reasonable? I have a pretty small frame and I'm wondering if I'm capable of gaining 20lbs of muscle. My time frame is open but I'm thinking I would like to hit my goal in no more then 3 years. Am I being easy on myself or too hard or what? I'm pretty sure I eat right and I like to change my workout routine at least every two or three months. Any feedback would be appreciated.
    sometimes slowly

    My stats:
    Age - 43
    ht - 5' - 7"
    wt - 152 lbs
    bf% - 10.5%
    pipe dream goal 175 lbs @ 10% bf
    making the switch to power lifting

    At 42 it is a more "uproad" battle.

    I think your goals are very reasonable though!
