Set my markers today

Today I fullfill a second round what is approx. 10km. Okay I didn’t went the way I wanted. Biggest problem today it that after approx. 3.4km my right calf ‘exploded’ and there for I couldn’t keep the pace I had. I had to added a lot of stops (walking sessions) after that. Although lungs / breathing felt good, also the rest of my body. Only you need two calfs to walk (jogging) proper ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m pround I didn’t go back home right away and fullfill the round of 10km. The coming week I should be worse jogging, due my right calf problem, although it won’t stop me continue the course to fullfill my goal. It’s like powerlifting ๐Ÿ˜‰ stick to your plan and give yourself the space to anticipate (so maybe more walking session the coming week) Sometimes you need more time to fullfill your (sub)goal. A now my calf says: F@#k up! ๐Ÿ™‚ #thereisnofinishline #nopainnogain
Again I didn’t stopped the strava app directly I fullfill my round. So I’m no donkey ๐Ÿ™‚

Training session with Iris Kensenhuis was memorable …….

Although it was a light training session…. not whahaha Iris improved herself again. Technique is improving. Also the will to improve herself.
During the training she meet herself and it all about taking the time for yourself and you can feel this to listen to your breathing ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yes she didn’t like me at all during the training…

Training 20-6-2017 squats, deadlifts and bench presses…..

Normally during this time of year I’m training for the European Masters in July and I have than totally focus on my training. Now I’m not training for any up coming meet, it is hard to focus on my training. When you competiting for over 30 years, my goal(s) to train are set during the year. And at this stage I really don’t know…… ๐Ÿ˜€ Strange feeling….. See what it will bring in the future ๐Ÿ™‚ So today I had an earlier low weight training (again). The temperature in the Netherlands are good (hot), so earlier work-outs are better to do than in the afternoon and/or evening in my opinion……

45 minutes…..
Squats 2×8 20kg 2×8 50kg 2×5 80kg 5×3 110kg (pause squats)
Deadlift 5×3 130kg
Bench press 2×8 20kg 2×8 50kg 2×5 70kg 5×3 90kg

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.

Tough CardioPowerLifting session :-)

Saturday I decided to go not ‘heavier’ this week. So I added 1 variation to my squat session today. Instead of 3-in-1 squats I did 4-in-1 squats and that was tough and gave a satisfied feeling.

1 set 4-in-1 squat means 12 reps in 1 set ๐Ÿ™‚
3x120kg 3x100kg 3×80 and 3x60kg (no hands front squats)
With little rest breaks this is tough. You feeling a nice pump in your body.ย Also by changing the weight on the bar by yourself, your breathing is going upwards and that making it harder. Additionally, it’s a separate experience that you feel comfortable in the set to recover it by lighter weight. This increases your explosiveness.

Also did 3-in-1 conventional deadlift 3x full pulls, 3x romanian and 3x lift off with 120kg for 5 sets. Followed by 5×3 sumo deadlift with 120kg.

Bench press felt good and easy ๐Ÿ™‚ 3-in-1 with 3 reps 95kg 90kg and 85kg. Finished training with 5×3 80kg shoulder grip.

Full overview of today’s program:
Planken 5x 35 seconds
Knee raises 5×15

Squats 2×8 20kg 2×8 60kg 2×5 90kg
