1/1/2012: First post of the year!

As 2011 has passed, it’s a good time to look back and be proud of what you’ve accomplished. It’s also the time to start setting new goals for the new year. Which is why you need to give yourself an honest assessment of the things you did real well, and the things that didn’t turn out how you wanted.

Step 1:  Putting the pen to paper and then placing it where you can see it every single day.
Step 2:  Come up with a realistic plan to achieve to your goals. Everyone has goals, but the people that reach them are the ones that come up with a game plan to get there. Otherwise they’re just dreams. Nothing wrong with dreams, but they aren’t the same as goals. If you don’t know how you’ll get there ask one of the coaches for help.
Step 3: Do everything you can to carry out step 2 to the best of your abilities. When you think you’re done, repeat step 3.
A couple of my goals this for 2012 is to squat my PR on squats 3 times, which I’m hoping to do by March. Also, to increase my overall work capacity and ability in body weight movements. Rather than just continually attempting to squat and hope for a miracle, my first step was to map out the steps it will take so I can become efficient enough to increase my squat. Justin and I worked out a game plan – we diagnosed the parts of my lift that are good, the parts that need more fixing, and set up a realistic schedule  and plan to achieve my goals. Now it’s up to me to execute.
