Went realistic this year.

1) Practice gymnastics twice a week, particularly MU, Pistol, Butterfly

2) Stretch more

3) Row 1,000,000 meters in 2012

4) Focus on strength and Oly lifting at least once a week

Whatever gains come from dedication, I am willing to accept. Focus on the things that I can control.

Here were my 2011 goals and how I measured up:

1. I want my 95# clean and jerk to feel like my 65# clean and jerk (not quite feeling 'that' light but I accomplished Grace Rx and love that I can C&J 95# more easily than before)
2. Wolverine (I was travelling for work when this took place)
3. 225# Deadlift (my form still sucks over around #175. I hit #225 at festivus I think but I can't say I have accomplished this with any sort of regularity)
4. 160# Back Squat (I hit 150# which I am happy with)
5. 80# snatch (hit 83# and can reach 80# with less "falling on my ass")
6. Break through my 85# should press plateau (hit 90# this year)
7. More CORE work to improve my knees to elbows and toes to bar (These are both better for me but still need more work in this area)
8. 10+ consecutive kipping pull-ups (done)
9. 10+ consecutive DU’s (done but not consistently enough- I am still a spaz)
10. Full depth HSPU (down to a 10# plate + 1 ab mat)
11. Execute a ring dip without the band (I can manage this but not well)
12. Start running again (didn't happen)

So I will continue to work on the things I did not accomplish or hit with regularity. My 2012 goals include:
1. stretch more
2. Work GHD and reverse hyper at least once per week (I know there are weeks that go by where all I do is "lean" on them
3. Be more consistent with my work outs
4. Rx more
5. Pick one skill per month and work on it consistently for that month post WODs (more pull-ups, HSPU, ring dips, etc..)

Since I'm new, this is a great way to kick off my 2012 goals and goals I had coming in.

Bench 225 (body weight)
Squat 350 (provided my form isn't too bad from lifting on my own)
Deadlift 400 (same as squat)
Fran Rx (no time, just complete it)

Skills to work on:
Wall squats
