Didn't have any goals up until 2 weeks ago

Doctor told me I need stomach surgery for a 3cm hernia

I'm 15.5 stone male 6.2 so overweight and out of shape

He told me I can't do the must-have surgery until I'm 13 stone



So yea... That's my motivation

I'm giving myself 5 months

Rinse and repeat of last years goals for me (Ruptured bicep in May put a halt to last year)

140 bench and 200 squat at 93kg (and then staying at or below that weight)

I want to drop two weight classes - down by about 15kg

Get competitive in the IPF

I’m not sticking numbers on the goals ... just get leaner and stronger !!

I'm just aiming for a first half marathon, best of luck.

Outside of running 2018 was the first year I haven't competed in Judo in a very long time.. I had a foot injury early in the year then fractured my elbow at the end of summer.

So next year, half marathon and back to Judo competition at -100kg

More swimming.

Injury free year! 400 wilks would be nice but gotta sort out this back first.

More my next goals rather than for the full year, but anyway (and all in comp):

Squat: 250kg. Should be achievable.
Bench: 135kg. Bit more difficult, but bench has started to move really well the last while.
Deadlift: 272.5kg (600lbs). Currently trialling sumo, so unsure of when but confident I’ll hit this in 2019 if I stay injury free.
Total: at least 650kg.

Would also like to hit 400 wilks (even though the IPF won’t be using this anymore) and fill out the 105s more, currently weighing 98kg roughly.

1) To be told I'm able to squat and deadlift again

2) To train regularly with a view to competing at the end of the year, early 2020.

I want to start running this year.

The excuses not to go to the gym are aplenty, and I'm married to my desk lately. I need to start moving around more, for heart and mobility.

I can run at lunchtime, no excuses. I don't like running but I want to learn to enjoy it. Motivation is an issue for me, I guess signing up for a race is the way to go

Why would you want to add pressure by focusing on a race?.

Check out http://www.parkrun.ie/ its a free timed run or walk in local parks all over the country. It doesn't have the commitment or the pressure of a race but it has all the enjoyment and fullfilment of one.

Another great way to get running, and the easiest is to download a coach to 5km app to your phone and that will take you from a couch potato to a easily running 5km in an eight week programme.

Either of those are great for someone who hates running but wants to start.. Parkrun has a great social aspect to it too.

Lol, 60kg? And the rest.

You've doubled 57.5kg if memory serves me.

65+

Same here buddy! But didn't think I'd be allowed talk about it here without risking a ban.
