New Year Goals
Every year I have made a weightloss goal for the new year, but that is so depressing!! I have decided to be happy with my current weight and set a strength goal this year and would love to hear some other strength or non weight related goals.
I want to deadlift twice my bodyweight by the end of next year which would be 250 pound dead. I am up to 1.5 times now.
I also want 10 dead hang pullups. I am up to 4.
Awesome goals! I hit a double bw DL a few months ago as part of my 2012 new years goal.
On tap for 2013 - One arm pullup, 300lb squat, and a human turkish get-up
(Great thread idea.)

WOW..That is some crazy strength! Love it.
What is a human turkish get-up?? Where you hold a human! LOL

I was pushed into my splits in the 7th grade and have had them ever since... before that I would just sit in splits for as long as I could stand it.. good luck!
I want to do a pullup, and after that, I want to do 10 pullups.

Do you have assistance bands?? That is how I got my first one.. I keep hearing I should continue to use them to get past 4 pullups but I stopped once I got one. I think I will incorporate them again.
I'm going to play piano an hour a week... not fitness related, but good for the body and mind none the less!
Awesome goals, looks like your on a good track to meet those. I'm coming back from leg injury myself in August which have slowed my 12 goals down, but im almost 100% again.
New Goals for 13....and well on the way there.
Stay at my current weight of 5'10 197-201lbs and crack off the current numbers below, (current in parentheses)
500 deadlift (475)
405 squat (365)
225 overhead press (205)
Get my AirForce PT test 1.5 mile time back down into the low 11's.....had a couple of years of injuries over the years and havent been 100% in a long time, and quite frankly despite being active I suck at running. I dont enjoy it hahah......
Stay healthy, enjoy the Backcountry in Alaska on my snowmobile, and let my fitness levels improve my riding abilities.
It's good to have real goals, goals involving what you can DO, not just weight loss goals or goals involving what you LOOK like.
I don't have assistance bands for the pullups. I use an assisted pullup machine, plus I do planks, rows, presses, other core work and there's a playground where I can do negatives, which I do if I'm in the area. I've already met my goal to do a pushup and have done 4 in a row now. Next step is to do 10 and then to do 20, 50, 100 pushups. But for now, the inability to do a pullup is burning in my brain so that's the one I consider a GOAL.
