Light session which were less light than expected

Tuesday I did:

Squats 3×3 120kg
Deadlift 3×3 140kg
Bench press 3×3 80kg

Today I did the same, only in 45 minutes and it felt ‘much heavier’.
Nevertheless it felt good and this is the step for my next semi heavy light training session tomorrow or Sunday. Depending of my energy level and/or will to push myself to my next level……

Joost de Groot thank you for the compliment

Thank you for the compliment @grootjoostde You did it awesome…. #Repost @grootjoostde (@get_repost) ・・・ I’m really happy with my results at the nationals; I have finally fully enjoyed a meet again. Competition prep this time was, besides strict, also very enjoyable because of the support of other motivating and motivated people. @sandrawildeman , for example, did a perfect job as a coach, even though she was not able to get the numbers she herself came for. She knows how to calm me down when necessary, but she’s also great at getting me fired up, as you can see in the picture. She chose my attempts very strategically, which greatly helped me claim a place on the podium for the third time this year. Additionally, @cardiopowerlifting has been a great support lately: Mentally, I have never felt stronger! Thanks, @wimwam1 I am also very fortunate to always be able to count on the support of an amazing group of people! I’ve wasted no time and have already started my preparations for 2018. I very much look forward to another great year of lifting and comradery. #power #powerlifting #squateveryday #squats #benchpress #deadlift #strong #coaching #teamsandra #teamseabert #Motivation #happy @miss_spikkel

Nevertheless I press 2x 102,5kg and failed on the 2nd rep with 110kg. Coming two weeks not to heavy 😆 so I will ready for my personal test over 2 weeks.

Light training means light training

In previous post I told you about my light training philosophy method. Some people start asking me if I can give more explanation what I mean light training.

First of all you have to train with light weight and you have to challenge yourself with the rest between the sets and/or excersises. This is the first step to put your thinking onhold. With the main goal is to push yourself in the flow where you have to maximum focus on your technique, power and mental state. So you push yourself towards your limits in the lifting the weights so powerfull that it looks easy another word is LIGHT. (And in next training(cycle) you can add some light weights ….. )

So when you train with weights which you can control easily, you can improve yourself at other points (technique / mental) which mostly are forgotten and in mine opinion a big(gest) part to generate maximum performance. Because you know when your technique is good and your mental state is focused, you can let go all your physical strength to have maximum performance. It’s like a Formula 1 car. How is it possible that car 1 beat car 2 although the cars have the same (horse)power. The difference is how is the (horse)power released (put on the road)……

Always nice to fool somebody ……

Today I trained together with Wesley Ortega. Wesley had to do one of his last training session for next week Classic Powerlifting Nationals. He joined me with my warm-up session and during this I fooled him and he had to pay the price during his final squat 🙂 

During the bench and deadlift he kept his mouth closed, because he won’t wanted to give me this moment of joy 😆 Because I tricked him, I know he his focused now to go all the way next week. Also I help me focus to push me to my next level of lifting of little bit more heavier weights….. which are still ‘light’ weights…..

Maybe some people start to understand what I really mean with LIGHT weights….. Because I will really what to KICK ass in my Home Gym…. 😀

 

 

3rd light training this week….

Monday I had a good training. Put some more weights on the bar and that went good. It had ofcourse some impact on my body, so on Tuesday I did some recovery sets added some pace between the sets. This causes even more impact, so I decided to skip my training yesterday. Also I went to the neurologist and this visite had a bigger mental impact that I expected. The neurologist did it great, he took the time and we discussed the following steps. He want do 3 examines on me.
1. MRI scan (on 21st December) 
2.Appointment with the neuropsychologist (to do several tests)
3.Sleep research (to exclude this matter to be sure)

Therefor I trained today and did some lighter weights than my recovery training only I added one rep to it. See how it will go tomorrow…
