Goals Mean Nothing Unless Written

So true… I’ve made so many on-the-spot goals for myself that were driven solely by how I felt at the time (a girl I liked, or a mistake I made). Goals are far more powerful as a motivator when they are physically written out, and even moreso when they are divulged to the public. So without further ado, here are my exercise goals for the semester:

  • Parallel squat 275 pounds for at least 15 repetitions.
  • Weigh in at 170 pounds.
  • Be able to close the Captains of Crush No. 1 Gripper 8 times (I currently am working with the CoC Trainer gripper + CoC Expand Your Hand Bands, which I will review in a post at a later date.)
  • Weighted chin-ups with 45 lbs, at least 15 repetitions.

Deadline for completion: April 30, 2008

These will no doubt be challenging goals to reach, and I will need to modify my current diet heavily - I am not getting enough protein and carbohydrates currently, and diet is as important as actual weightlifting in gaining strength and muscle.

For now, I’m converting this blog from a personal one to a workout journal, complete with how I am doing towards achieving my goals, and some commentary on weightlifting and training in general.
