Goals for 2017
« on: December 21, 2016, 02:29:21 PM »
Decided to this little fun thing, to hear about goals of you powerlifters out there. Goal is to be understood in a broad way, so it can include non-powerlifting sportsgoal (for instance weight lifting etc).

So what are your goals for 2017?

"For one to press alot, one must press alot, comrade."

Thank you for asking. It was fantastic :D
  • Squat: 85 kg (+10kg from last PR check)
  • Bench: 52.5kg (+7.5kg)
  • Deadlift: 115kg (+15kg) I think I could manage 117.5
For 1 month (from last max check) as beginner I think is not bad progress.
and I need to add one more goal for 2017.. get stronger to make my training friend stop saying that I'm weak 8)

very good!
We all want to get stronger, that is why we are here, seeking knowledge :)

I have a few competitions under my belt and best total of 700 in -83. I want to beat that, but 2017 will not be that year. I would like to recoup whatever strength I have lost and lose kilos i have gained during my period abroad. so 2017 goals are not that interesting for me - it is all about getting back in shape.

I am 40 and relatively new to Sheiko and powerlifting so this year I'm working on improving the big three lifts.  My numbers are Squat:230, Bench: 205, and Deadlift: 285.  My goal is to end the year at Squat: 290, Bench: 220, and Deadlift: 335.  All weights are in lbs.  Being so new to lifting I think these are realistic numbers to work toward but nonetheless, I consider anything more than what I have an improvement.

My main goal for this year is 530kg total in -83kg. (I need 527.5kg just to get to nationals)

So, based on that it would look something like this:
Squat 165 -> 180
Bench 120 -> 130
Deadlift 200 -> 220

are there quota on how many people that can participate in the nationals? or is it just to make certain there is a certain level?

Great question. I'm not sure, at least I didn't found it anywhere, but I think that there's not that many lifters that they would have to limit the amount of participants.
