What are your goals for 2004?

The slate is clean, time to get in gear. What are your fitness plans to be achieved in the upcoming year?

my goal is to maintain my workout with my trainer and slim down and tone up at the same time, if that makes sense.

oh and to leg press 40 plates, bench over 300 squat over 450, dead lift over 450 and 200 on 21's

I did 28 plates last nite 14 times next friday I am going for 30. the only problem I have is the lift off but once I go I get them going on my own. I also wear my belt while doing the last set, it seems to help me, don't know if that is cheating or not though.

You aren't doing a full press then. Bring your knees all the way down to your chest and see how many reps you get. Proper form is far more important to growth that moving alot of weight a few inches.

My goal is to get my collar bone fixed so I can get back to lifting weights again. It won't take me no time at all to shed this gut I've picked up and get the size back on my arms and chest that disappeared within a couple weeks.

Now that I think about it, are you talking about the free-weight leg press or the machine leg press?

The only problem with this, is that you have to watch your lower back. If your tail bone or lower back even begins to curl OFF the pads, you're taking a HUGE risk of injuring your back up. So, for people that are flexible enough to "touch their knees to their chest" AND keep the back in a natural arch.... GO FOR IT!! But, I know my body, and I know how far I can go, with 4 plates on each side, or my max. I'm not arguing, just using my knowledge. I DO agree, the more range of motion, the better for the muscles, but you also have to make sense out of your body's abilities.

BTW, we have crappy leg press machines in our gym , the 45 degree Cybex version is my favorite out of the 4 total versions, and allows the most weight. We can only put 13 plates on each side, but we learned to just balance (place) some plates on the top. Last time (a month ago now) that I was able to go "heavy", I was up to 14 reps, with 6 plates on the top. Next time, my partners and I will be climbing on top of those said plates, and we're all 210-240 lbs.

That is a very good point, but my comment was more directed at the guys I've seen that load up the leg press and rep out moving the sled all of 3 or 4 inches. Leverage isn't a factor when moving it so little which allows for one to push alot more weight than when doing full reps. The only other explanation is that he is talking about the leg press machine, and the "plates he is talking about are the 10-20lb weights in the weight stack.

It uses the 45 pound weights and you sit at an angle and you are pressing up, at an angle, they have two of those but one is a steeper(sp?) degree than the other. I am doing the steeper of the two. I lower my legs as far down as I can, and i ask my trainer every time if i am going far enough down after every set. I know that my knees won't touch my chest though, but that has more to do with my gut than me not being able to go that far down. but as for is a machine or free weight not sure what a machine one looks like to tell you if it is or not. but here is a link to their site http://www.metroflexgym.com/index.htm if you look at the gallery then men look for rendy his name is under his picture that is my trainer but he is bigger now, either that or that pic makes him look small.

Getting abs seems to be not such an easy thing anymore.. some people say carbs are bad others say they are good.. etc. I think working out isnt to hard of a thing to stick with if I only knew what foods to eat.

LMAO Yeah, I feel ya on that, too! I'm the same way. I can take my light weight work outs, and still "hurt". It's just a different kind of work out, if ya know what I mean!! One: Move a lot of weight as much as possibly, tearing them up! Two: Move a sane amount of weight, and still do some damage. But my legs grow and hurt more, the more weight I do. With our dinky machine, I've started one leg'd presses, but you know you have to be careful of the MCL, and all that!!

you can come to my gym for a free work out that day and you can join in with me and the trainer. we just do abs, forearms, leg extension(I think that is what it is called where you sit and lift your legs up), sissy squats, then the reverse of the leg exten(you bring your legs down) then standing leg lift( for the hamstring I think) then leg press, then box squats( I friggin hate box squats) I am not the strongest person but I just try and improve every time I am there, and Rendy really pushes me.

It's called the leg curl or hamstring curl. You might want to suggest adding deadlifts to the program as well, that's one of the two main mass building leg exercises along with squats.

254 lbs, about 12% bf right now.
Want to get to 260 by January (I don't care if it is fat), and then, I want to cut to 235-240 by my wedding in June, w/ about 9-10% bf. This is my first go round @ "body building". Since I played football in college, we were only allowed to do explosive movements, and no slow reps. I think I have enough knowledge to reach my goals, but we will see.

Oh yeah, my turn.

I want to trim off 10lbs of fat without sacificing any lean mass to leave me at 200lbs with 10%bodyfat. Once I've done that it will be time to up my clean calories in an effort to recover strength and maybe even add a pound or two of lean mass over the summer while maintaing 10% and no more than 12%. LLwhat?

I want a 450 lb. squat and a 500 lb. deadlift.

Not sure if I will get there. Last couple of weeks I have squatted 245 lbs. for 8 reps, 5 sets. First set is easy, last set I am about to pass out.

Been pulling up 300 lbs. for 6 reps on the dealift pretty easy though.

Thats naked, squats below parallel and perfect form.

Not sure if I will get there. Last couple of weeks I have squatted 245 lbs. for 8 reps, 5 sets. First set is easy, last set I am about to pass out.

Been pulling up 300 lbs. for 6 reps on the dealift pretty easy though.

Thats naked, squats below parallel and perfect form.
Not trying to "down" or ridicule you, or put your hopes off, but you got a long ways to go! But on the other hand, keep at it, and you will see those #s come up!!
