Default 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.

January 1st, 2013

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.

Squats
145 x 5
235 x 3
325 x 1
415 x 1
465 x 1

505 x 1

Deadlifts
135 x 5
225 x 1
315 x 1
405 x 1

495 x 5

Leg Curls
45 x 10
45 x 10

Plate Side Bends
45 x 10
45 x 10

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.

Another year, another 365 chances to crush it.

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.
