For several months I don’t powerlift (train) ………… My mind is disabled on several points….. Most of all I starting to miss the structure I had for so long. Trainingsdays, focus on my lifting goals, which generated the discipline to go for it…. Below the a headline of a newspaper which my mother gave me. This is the same date as the date (30th May 2017) of my first Dutch Championship Powerlift Championship, which I also won 😀 At this stage I feel how important that messages is for me and what I misses at this stage. I have interpreted the text as follows: If you what to be a champion, you have to act like a champion. So you have to do what is needed to achieve your goal. Nothing more and nothing less…. let go of the things (mindsets) which is in your way to achieve your goal….. So it is to figure about (a) new goal(s), which give me focus and give me the inner power which generates the power for the structure and the required discipline…….
Being able…being stable…being equipped
Entering the world of powerlifting for little over a year now. Not knowing that this was a start of learning that there is way more possible than you ever imagine.
Some of the masters in this field convided me in the secret that CLASSIC/RAW lifting did not exist when they started.
Me….newbie….in this field can’t even imagine how that looked like but most of all how this feels like. A part of me and my partner in crime @ilyscious are curious about this world of dynamics that seems to be the crème de la crème of lifting.
Well….speak your wishes outloud in the presence of Wim Wamsteeker and you know you will regret it in the same nano second 🤔.
14/10/17 I will never forget….!
When we tried to find a benchshirt in Wim’s collection there were a zillion custommade to choose from. We had the honour to get in his zero XXXX shirt that he worn at one of the competitions he participated last year 👨🏭.
Ofcourse I felt the superhero in me come out knowing I’d bench like I never benched before. Luckily for me I now can say I still have all my teeth.
Placing the bar on the right spot and pressing through the sticking point. #OMG #PAIN #POINTOFNORETURN.
How do people go through such pain for fun 👀👀👀. That was my initial thought. But holy guacamoly how cool is it to bench more than you have ever benched!!!
It felt like #MAGIC.
For sure we will be back for more.
