Let’s Get Strong, Winter Is Coming…

October is here and tomorrow I start my first official workout for bulk up season.

My goal this year is to go up near 180 lbs, along with hitting certain strength and cardio goals.  This year I would like to hit the following;

325 bench press

315 squat

475 deadlift

95’s shoulder dumbbells

3 miles in 22 minutes outside and treadmile

1 mile under 6 minutes

You would think that my cardio workouts would make me weak, but its actually quite the opposite.  Just as long as I am increasing my calories, the cardio workouts actually help to keep me lean while I gain weight.

I also noticed that the cardio workouts help to stretch out my muscles.  For last 10 years I have had nagging rotator cuff injuries, but I have learned that cardio helps to stretch it out.

I also want to get started quickly.  I feel like I took too long to get into the real heavy lifting last year because I was scared of injuries, but I don’t know if that is necessary.

I have over 20 years of lifting experience now, there is no reason why I cant start attacking right away.

Hopefully, I will have some heavy numbers up by Thanksgiving.
