If you hung around last year, check your previous goals HERE. Did you achieve those goals? What went well, what didn't?
And of course, lets set the goals for 2014.
My goals last year:
I did achieve two of those. Deadlift was 180kg. Even though I changed from conventional to sumo, it's still a DL for me. The bench I got, the front squat was 10kg short (130kg). I still got a nice 15kg improvement. I had a minor contact injury while rollerblading in the summer, which led to series of events and pain that still is present somewhere in my hip when squatting. So I had to squat high for a month or two. Also the strict dieting was not really wise when trying to get huge strength gains.Front Squat: 140kg
Bench Press: 95kg
Anyway, time for new goals. I have two:
Deadlift: 200kg (440lbs). By the end of 2014.
Bench Press: 100kg (220lbs.). Before summer/june.
Simple is good. With only two goals it's easier to focus my training. The plan involves stronger triceps for benching, and stronger back, glutes and hammies for the deadlift. I'll try to peak my bench using one of Yuri Verkhoshanskys programs.
