Weight and Resistance Training - My "Shoot For The Moon" Goal

View Full Version : My "Shoot For The Moon" Goal

IFBB Figure Pro. I know it's not attainable but I figure if I aim for it then at the very least it gives me something to aim for. I love lifting mid range weights and can't wait til I can lift heavier and learn to execute a dead lift and other bar based strength exercises properly.

Anyone else have a crazy but do-able or almost do-able goal they are willing to share?

Oh yeah :D My crazy goal is to do an iron-man someday.. I doubt it'll happen but damn I'll work for it! In 2 weeks it's time for my 2nd half marathon and hopefully not too long after I'll do my first marathon.
I've been swimming a lot lately so I want to start doing some triathlons and maybe some crazy day I'll be an iron woman ;)

American Ninja Warrior. :dizzy: It will never happen - but I like you said it's something to aim for.

Thank you both. Was starting to feel like perhaps the calorie changes, weight training and mid life were causing me to go a bit nuts.. oh and the two teen daughters. yeah. I'm pretty sure they are driving me crazy.

I've got 2 teen daughters myself who drive me crazy!:dizzy:

if only dealing with their drama burned calories like it raises my blood pressure.

yeah... my pie in the sky dream:

315 squat/225 bench/405 dead

at 165.

it's going to take a number of years. i am still in the process of getting to 165! who knows what my numbers will be when i get there, but when i do, i plan on doing bulk/cuts to build muscle and hopefully someday i get those numbers.
