Goals on Goals

In the first month of 2016, I set a goal to squat a plate + a quarter by the end of the year. Today I achieved that goal within 4 months and I’m proud of myself. It’s time to set a new leg day goal for the remaining seven months of this year. My new goal is squatting 205 for at least 3 reps by December. I think I’ll get there.


Progressive overload has been working well for me. My leg workout focused on the primary movement in the squat rack, but I also hacked a plate (finishing with assistance and accessory movements). Here is what my primary movement looked like on the day I met my first, 2016 leg day goal.

95 lbs- 2 sets of 13 reps
135 lbs- 12 reps
145 lbs- 10 reps
155 lbs- 10 reps
175 lbs- 8 reps
185 lbs- 2 sets of 6 reps (*YEAY!)
115 lbs- 10 paused reps
