    2019 "Get In Shape" Workout Goals Thread

    Time to get the ball rolling on the new season!

    My goals:

    1) Ride 5,000 miles, run 150 miles
    2) Improve on my half marathon PR (2:28, should be easy)
    3) Find a new "biggest climb" bigger than Greylock
    4) Get my power/weight ratio over 4.0w/kg (currently about 3.55w/kg) by a combination of losing weight and building power.
    5) prep for what will now have to be a 2020 Everesting attempt by either doing a half Everest this season, or doing a ride with an equivalent-or-greater elevation gain, of 14,514 feet.
    6) Break 10 minutes on a Wachusett service road summit from the visitor's center to the top of the service road where it breaks off to the summit parking lot.
    7) Climb more vertical feet than Chris, including his chairlift vertical feet, and get redemption for losing a bottle of scotch to him on betting on that this year.
    8) Do a 200+ mile ride in a single day
    9) Don't get hurt!

    What about you guys?

    Semi relatedly, despite being sick as a dog I started my New Year with what was supposed to be an easy spin on a 55 degree day, but thanks to a ripping tailwind and favorable traffic lights, sprinted the length of Somerville Ave on the way back in and snagged 2 KOMs I'd been chasing for ages, which is an auspicious start to the new year!

    Simple goal for me this year - 400 hours exercising.

    I'll give you double or nothing on that bottle of scotch this year, but instead of two bottles (when I inevitably win again) the single bottle is going to get a lot older.

    No injuries and a consistent average of 6 days a week. Also to make back what I've lost in a lazy couple of months before the weather gets good. Don't want to spend the first couple months of the season getting back in shape like I did last year.

    I noticed in the 2018 thread that a lot of guys here do cycling/running and so that makes up the majority of the fitness on here, but since this is the 'workout goals' thread, I'll post about my shit too
    I've been doing powerlifting/strength training since late October, partly as a vanity thing, partly to make up for starting out skinny and weak.
    Last time I was measured (Early December), my weight was 82.7kg overall and my muscle mass was 69.7kg.
    By June, I'm aiming to reach 75kg muscle mass.

    By then, I guess these are the weights I want to be lifting:
    -Squat + Deadlift: 100kg, maybe higher for DL (Currently 65kg)
    -Bench press: 50kg as a starting point, may increase though. (Currently 35kg)
    -Overhead press: 45kg (Currently 22.5kg)
    -Barbell row: 45kg~ (Currently 27.5)

    I usually step it up by 2.5kg each week, depending on how well I can handle the lift, but I realise it'll get harder the heavier I go, so I'm slightly lowballing to give myself a bit of space. If I can, I'll step it up, but if not, no biggie.

    I'm definitely buying you a bottle of Dalwhinnie for this season. I'll wager another bottle for next season if you want, and we can make THAT one a bit older.
