goals for a non competitive body builder

  1. goals for a non competitive body builder


    Unlike others that want higher benches, squats, etc... i make my goals based on my weight. For example my bench i would prefer at least 150% of my weight at least. Does anyone know the other parts? (Opinion)

    Bench:
    Squat:
    Shoulder:
    Curls:
    Tris:
    Deadlifts:
    Calves:
    Etc:


  2. Well that's a nutty question, for squat, bench and deadlift I've seen that most people use similar weights for all three, deadlift usually being a bit heavier. I wouldn't take a stab at coming up with figures, especially for specific bodyparts.

    Here are/were my goals (i've met them, got injuried, re-met, lost weight, gained weight, etc, etc):

    Bench: 1.5xBW
    Squat: 2.0XBW
    Deadlift: 2.5XBW
    Military Press: 1.0XBW (Though due to injury, I no long do this)

    I don't max on any arm movements or calf movements. I am for size there. I want to be ~10% and have my arms/calves be 2.5x my wrist measurement. I think those are good general weight lifting goals to strive for if you are serious.

  4. To be honest, as long as I hit my eventual goal of 220-230 8-9% BF I really don't care about how high all of my lifts are. after hitting 4 plates on squat (which by all means isn't crazy considering the big boys) I thought to myself...what's the point. I mean, no one is watching me, judging me, etc. The only thing that is happening is my joints are taking an extra beating and if I had a purpose then maybe so but as far as development is concerned I feel I can reach it without hitting big numbers.

    True, for bodybuilding purposes weight doesn't matter much. Personally, I started out as a powerlifter, now I am kind of a half breed or "powerbuilder". I am naturally short, stocky and fairly strong. Branch warren/johnnie jackson type of body builder. For me this is how I still moniter my progess, I keep track of weights, but you are right, heavy weight does more harm then good half the time. Having said all this, I don't max out anymore, because as you said "no one is watching me."
