This is my first quest here, as the current quest is nearly finished, this 6-week challenge shall be the one that starts on November 10th. I shall provide an update on how close I am on the first day.

MAIN QUEST: Increase my strength so that I am able to lift more than my own bodyweight.

Goal 1: Squat with a barbell 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10).

Goal 2: Bench press 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10).

Goal 3: Bent over row a barbell 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10).

Life side quest: As this quest ends on the same day as my semester, my life side quest is to achieve at least 50% on all of my essays due this semester.

The bodyweight referred to in each of the goals is that of me at the end of the challenge, not me at the start. Thanks for reading, -SB

I have my current programme (http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/55364-studentbudget-my-current-programme/) which has been producing results for me so far. So long as I don't hit a plateau in any of those three exercises (I keep a chart of how heavy I'm lifting in each of them) I'm going to keep to it.

Bodyweight: 64.9kg

Bench press: 52.5-55kg

So my side life goal is making progress and my fitness goals are at around 80-90% of my bodyweight.

Looking forward to seeing where I am at the start of the 6 weeks.
