2012 / 2013 New Years Goals

It's been a great year for me in all aspects of my life. Here are the goals I set for myself to accomplish in 2012.

  • Compete at the Classic Nationals in order to qualify for the Classic Worlds.
  • Act as host / meet director for the Nova Scotia Provincials for both CPU and Military only meets.  
  • Continue to train youth.
  • Improve my cardiovascular conditioning.
  • Find my true potential. I've felt for sometime now that I have not even come close to my true potential. With my experience and my size I should be moving much more weight. Immediate goals are, 500lbs raw squat, 365lbs raw bench and a 600lbs raw deadlift. Total raw 665kg. 
2012 was extremely busy. I actually have done quite well with the goals I had set for myself. Here's how 2012 went.

  • I helped out at the Nova Scotia Provincials, working at the head table entering in all the data. This gave me a better understanding of the logistical side of Powerlifting.
  • Competed at the Eastern Canadians in Digby NS. I've been following the Doug Hepburn routine for a while now with amazing success at this meet. A year earlier I achieved  a total of 602.5kg at the Easterns in Charlottetown. This year I set PBs in all three lifts and total. Squat 215kg, Bench Press 160kg, Deadlift 267.5kg, Total 642.5kg. Not the 665kg I forcasted but to achieve a Class II total is a huge accomplishment.
  • In Jan I went to the OptiMYz Health and Fitness Expo. I inquired about how to involve Powerlifting. Long story short on 19 Jan 2013 NSPL will be hosting it's first meet at the OptiMYz Health and Fitness Expo. This is going to be a huge step up for Powerlifting in Eastern Canada. Easily the largest audience we have ever had. It's gonna be awesome!!!
  • I am still working will the Center 24/7, training the troubled youth in Powerlifting. I have made great new friends and feel fabulous every time The kids come down to the Powerhouse to test their metal.
  • As the President of the 14 Wing Powerhouse I have competed an ecourse and am now able to make purchases for the club. Our first purchase was a much needed power rack. Members a very pleased with the new equipment.
  • I competed at my 2nd Gagetown Powerlifting competition. This year was bigger and much better than last year. Who knows what the 2013 meet will be like. I am very pleased that Powerlifting is catching on in the CF.
  • When I turned 40 this year I decided it was time for a change. I started a diet 29 Sept and have lost 30lbs to date with more weight to loose. My goal for the end of Jan is 300lbs. My goal for 2013 is to weigh 275lbs and maintain that while increasing strength.
  • I started walking / jogging again to get ready for my PT test. This year I am walking much farther than in the past. I would like to maintain this. We'll see how things go.
Here are some of my goals for 2013.
  • I want to push myself harder than ever before. I will continue to follow the Doug Hepburn routine with some slight modifications (read about training in my blog to see the mods). I have no doubt that I will... Squat 500lbs, Bench Press 400lbs, Deadlift 600lbs. Of course classic, no gear.
  • I will continue to be the voice of Powerlifting. Right now I'm geared up for the OptiMYz meet in three weeks. I want Powerlifting to gain popularity and will work towards that.
  • I will continue to train the kids from the Center 24/7 and act as president of the 14 Wing Powerhouse.
  • I would like to get my body weight down to 275lbs but continue to get stronger.
2012 was such an epic year so my main goal for 2013 is just to maintain what I'm doing. If that happens it will be a huge success. Stay tuned.
