Beards and Barbells - The Log of No Goals
I will not be setting specific lift goals in 2013. My focus will be on trusting the process. I have less than 5 years until I hit 50, and if I can stay healthy and add 25 pounds to each of my lifts, I will be a happy man.

So that is my goal.

Right now my 3 lift total is hovering around 1600. That's down from Nationals last year. My move away from frequent squatting has been costly. Lesson learned.

Ultimately it would be nice to hit a 2000 pound raw total by the age of 50. 2000 or not, I will be satisfied with every extra pound added to my total. I plan on fighting for it, but not forcing it. I will trust the process, as it always delivers results.

Right now life is so busy with work, family and training others that I do not have the fire to compete. That doesn't mean I won't. Once I get around a 1700 total I am sure my passion will return.

I thank everyone that follows my log. Let's make 2013 a productive, healthy year. Train smart, live to fight another day, and trust the process.

Here we are. Another year. I count every one as a blessing, and will do my best to make it a productive 365 days.

My only goal today was to hit a 505 squat single. I need to build up my conditioning on squats and deads. Deads feel manageable right now but squats feel really heavy. I plan on microloading them very slowly this year and not rushing things.

Sounds like a plan! I'm not specifying any goals either, I seem to do better that way.

We must never lose faith in the squat. :D

Another year, another 365 chances to crush it.

Strong work BtB and a good attitude towards it. I wish you a happy new lifting year brother!!!

We ended last year stronger and better than the previous year. The precedent is there, confidence should be deservedly high.

Let's bite off a bit more of the pie, together.
