Awesome performance of the sisters Kensenhuis at the Dutch Classic Powerlifting Nationals. Ilrish recovering from a leg injure and decided 3 weeks to skip this Nationals…. With hard work on here side, she turned it around and hit the platform Yesterday… And finished it with a National record deadlift! Welldone…..
And then National record holder Iris……. lifted the highest deadlift ever by a dutch female deadlift at an Classic Powerlifitng meet 220kg!!! Really awesome. I’m pleased to have them training in my homegym sometimes and give them small help / advice, so that they can make their next step(s). Thank you 😀
3 weeks ago I started training with light weights again and in within 3 weeks I’m able to squat 2x 185kg and deadlift 2x 215kg. Bench press is tough due the nerve problem I got in my left arm. 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.
On Monday 20th November I started with my 1 hour trainingcycle. Today I finished my 11th session 🙂
Just light weight, which were ‘heavy’. This training is set up for my next light heavy training !?
Also all lifters who are competiting this weekend at the Dutch Classic Powerlifting Nationals. Good luck and may the Force be with you!
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)……
In the year 1987 I won my first (junior) National Powerlifting title. Also I started my obligatory military service. And it was my final summer at RCN Zeewolde. So 1987 is a memorable year for me and now 30 years later I went back to place where I had a great time. Awesome to see (small) changes and get confronted with the memories. My friend came over and it was emotional. Both are partners have stand there for years and they have left the place. When you see recognition points, you hope time stand still. Only the o’ clock taps. There is no way back only memories…. so cherish these memories (quote Patrick) and yes I will do. Thank you! We also went ‘naar voren’ 🙂
