Will cross post to Fools Fighting Fat.

I'm taking a weight lifting class at school this term. First class was today. There are about 5 women and 25-30 guys in the class, better ratio than I expected, actually.

Sooooo, by Thursday, I'm supposed to come up with goals so the coach can help us arrange an individualized plan. I asked how specific the goals should be. He wants as specific as possible. He said that if you just say "all over body fitness" then he'll do something for that, but if you have more specific goals, be as specific as possible.

So, my upper body strength goals are to do 10 military style, full body pushups and a wide-grip pull up.

I'm having trouble coming up with a lower body strength goal. I was thinking of squatting with a specific amount of weight, but I have no idea how much weight would be good to shoot for. Any ideas? 50 pounds? More, less? (oh, this is an 18 week semester)

Oh, and every class, we are starting with 5 sets of 35 crunches, adding 5 crunches per set every week until we reach 5 sets of 50. EEEK. I don't usually do that much ab work, thinking that my yoga stuff is probably enough.
