Setting Realistic Weightlifting Goals

Setting realistic goals is not as easy as you might think, but there are several ways you can make your new year's resolutions more achievable.

Track and Measure

One way to do this is to set measurable goals and time limits for when you want to achieve them. For example, if you are trying to add weight to your snatch, why not set a specific kg/lbs goal and a time limit to achieve that weight?

Simply stating you want to lift heavier weights is not specific or measurable, and this type of goal is hard to motivate yourself to achieve.

One at a Time

Alongside setting measurable goals, you should also try to focus on one goal at a time. If you try to do too much at once, chances are it will lead to failure. With so many goals on your to-do list, you can feel overwhelmed and anxious. Plus, if you miss one of your goals, your motivation can drop, which can lead to you missing other goals as well that you were previously achieving.

Leave a Little Wiggle Room

When it comes to setting goals in 2023, it is important to leave yourself a little flexibility for success.

Yes, you should spend time creating a highly structured plan to help you achieve your weightlifting goals, but unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes.

We are all human and need to accept that everything doesn't always go to plan. If you only allow a road to success that is unwavering and rigid, you give yourself less chance of getting there. 

Try to set achievable goals and adjust them as they go. There is no shame in changing your goals to better suit your current physical capabilities. This approach will lead to much more long-term success.
