Currently I'm cutting, so my short term goal is to go from 235 @ around 18%bf to between 210 and 215 and see 10-12%bf. I will cut until i"m happy, and depending on how easy it comes, I might go lower.
Secondary goals are to keep as much muscle mass as possible, I worked hard to get stronger and thicker, I dont want to lose it. I am a martial artist also, so hitting hard is good hahahah. And as hard as it is I need to increase stamina too, not easily done while keeping mass.
Long term goal, is to finish up my cut, maintain my body comp until I bulk again in the winter. I will try to add 15lbs of lean mass at that time, and get to 225 and 10%. From there the sky is the limit.
think big, eat big, lift big .... be big.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
