Still at it…

Every SUNday I review my week and allĀ my sins šŸ™‚
Well today it’s evaluationday. This comes after judgementday a.k.a. the weekly central training.
.
.
Five weeks @ following this new programm feels like a rollercoaster. An interesting and unpredictable ride I must say. Eventhough we know where we are working towards. Ahum….at least one of us does.

My third equipped training is a fact. Squats were a big challenge. I’m much aware of being out of my comfort zone. My head and body are trying to speak the same language when It comes down toĀ Ā speeding up the lift. But mostly to ‘let go’. I’m not affraid of failing a squat…I’m just not looking forward to get comfortable staying down..d.d.d.down there.

I’m stunned about the fact that my light training sessions seem to pay off. Especially when it comes down to my technique. I’ve noticed that my style is changing and I think for the better. When my lifts areĀ  wobbly, tensionless, look like dive bombs; ‘you name it’ I’ve done it…Ā I can reproduce what I did wrong and am able to act on it in the next set/rep/training.Ā Click here to watch a part of yesterday’s trainingĀ and know what IĀ mean.

All the mobility exercises are beneficial to my bench press. There is still a lot work to be done. Focussing on my set up…leg drive…and placement of the barrrr
.
.
On deadlifts I’m amazed about the KG’s the suit is making me pull. And the speed that comes with it. Needless to say that I almost started with squats in my deadlift suit :-). Lucky for me coach keeps an eye on everything. Especially onĀ me and makes sure I don’t get lost in this world of endless possibilities, reps and sets.

.

If it was not for him I would still be walking around in my suit this weekend. Because I couldn’t get out of my belt. It must have something to do with being : EQUIPPED IN BEING CLUMSY.

Untill we meet again….

Today’s trigger……

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….Ā  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 šŸ˜€Ā  At this stage I feel how important that messages is for me and what I misses at this stage.Ā 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…….
