No training the coming time :-)

The last two weeks I didn’t posted any update. I did not train for the last 2 weeks and for the coming time I will not train at all. At this stage I take a step back from powerlifting because I believe this helps me to accept that my powerlifting career has come to an end. This is better for my brain / mind and this gives me energy to focus on other things 🙂 When I started my training, I will start up my blog again 😉

Till now. Thank you all very much for your support.

Awesome performance by the sisters Kensenhuis at the DRC Cup 2017

Iris & Ilrish did a great job at the DRC Cup 2017. Both won the title (Iris in -84kg class and Ilrish in the +84kg class). Awesome performance at the deadlift. Iris deadlifted 200kg. Ilrish is the first female classic powerlifster who deadlifted 210kg in the Netherlands. Below the videos of their meet.

New Masterclass coming up :-)

More information will be posted on the facebook pagina Ironhouse and/or website of Ironhouse. Love to meet the powerlifters of the future 🙂

The first Powerlifting MasterClass with Wim Wamsteeker was a truly great day and an amazing seminar!So great that we…

Announcement & confusion together make it tough too training today :lol:

The announcement is that I will (hope) to participate at the Dutch Nationals Masters (equipped) 21st of May.  This announcement makes myself a little confusioned 😀 Participation means that I have to hold an eye on my borders. So I don’t get too enthausiastic and put too much weight on the bars, so the pressure will be too much in my head.

I’m very glad that my new way of training created this possibility. The decission makes me very happy 🙂

I don’t want to leave the platform through the backdoor 😆 and this meet will give me options for the future (comings months). Because of this participations I keep the option open to be able to participate at the European & Worlds Masters (equipped) If I will be participate I don’t know yet. I know I liked the meets very much together with my international powerlifting friends and in specific with Peter Baltus and Michael Kalter. If I will be participate I have to try out to wear loose suits / shirt, because the ‘normal’ tight suits / shirt generates too much compresion (and therefor too much pressure on my head) …….. This will be an option after 21th of May.

Goals for 21th of May will be:
Squats 220kg (with wraps)
Bench press 127,5kg
Deadlift 230kg

Today’s training was tough (most off all mentally) and therefore I took a little bit more time to train. Workout lasted 105 minutes instead of 90 minutes. The weights, sets and reps were the same as last week Monday. The 4-in-1 squats are really killing me 😀
