14-4-2017 normal powerlifitng training weekly check of improving maximum strength

In the philosophy of CardioPowerLifting you have one “normal” powerlifting training. Just to check if your (maximum) strength is improving. This training is the contrary of the CardioPowerLifting session. This means you do less sets and take enough rest between the sets. You shall feel that your body is getting restless and earlier ready to do the next set. Take rest. This training can also be done in 90 minutes.
Watch first last week Friday normal powerlifting training.

And now today’s program:
Because my body felt really sore from the training sessions of this week. I did less in the warm-up excersises (planken & goodmornings)

Planken 3x 30 seconds
Goodmornings 3×8 20kg
Squats 2×8 20kg 2×8 60kg 5x90kg (proper warming-up sets are a must have) 3x120kg 3x145kg 2x165kg (with belt) 2x180kg (belt + sleeves)
Deadlift 3x120kg 3x150kg 3x175kg 2x195kg 2x210kg (with belt)
Bench press 2×8 20kg 8x60kg 5x80kg 3×97,5kg 2x110kg (wirst wraps) 2x115kg (wirst wraps + belt)
Streching cycle

*during my final deadlift set I felt that the pressure in my head was enough. So next my deadlift must go a little easier.

First explanation about CardioPowerLifting

Below the first steps about explanation of CardioPowerLifting

1. light weight
2. keep op the pace / short pauses between with working sets
3. Take your time for your warm-up sets and keep up the pace between those sets.
4. Total training is based on the variations about the powerlifting excercises.
5. Focus on your technique
6. Goal create a mindf*#k during your training session 😉
7. Working sets are maximum 5 reps
8. Weekly you have 1 normal powerlifting training session
9. Focus on a maximum of 90 minutes work-outs
10. Put 3-in-1 excersises in your program (these can be variation of the excersises of in- and/or decrease the weight within the set.
11. Powerlifting = 30% + 30% technique + 40% mental

More explanation about the way of training and specific excersises will come. Like the explanation of 3-in-1 sets 🙂

Please also my ‘basic’ training philosophy at the of the page ‘The Why

12-4-2017 recovery training “my ass” :lol:

Today the focus was on the recovery, because coming Friday the weekly normal powerlifting session is on the program. Therefore lower weights than previous days. Nevertheless the speed of the training was killing 🙂

Program:
Planken 5x 35 seconds
Knee raises 5x 15
Good mornings 5×8 40kg
Squats 2×8 20kg 2×8 50kg 2×5 80kg (warm-up sets)
3-in-1 squats (variation of slow, pause & normal squats)
5 sets with 100kg 2 reps slow, 3 reps pause & 2 reps normal (speed)
Deadlift 3-in-1 sets 5 sets of 3 reps 110kg, 2 reps 115kg and 1 reps 120kg
Bench press 2×8 20kg 2×8 40kg 2×5 60kg (warm-up sets)
3-in-1 bench press 3 sets with 80kg 3 reps narrow, 3 reps middle & 3 reps wide grip
4 th set with 75kg & 5th with 70kg.
Most important in my opinion is to fullfill your set & reps instead of heavy weights 😉

Cardiopowerlifting.com a new way of training. Improve you maximum power by training with light weights

Cardiopowerlifting is a new way of training I develop due my personal circumstances. After my brain operation earlier this year I’m not allowed to put maximum pressure on my head. Because I’m powerlifting over 30 years I cann’t an imagine a world without Powerlifting. Therefore I start thinking about a ‘new’ way of training and add the oldskool of training with my philosophy of training I develop over the years. People I have trained / trained with know my basic rule: You become strong by your light workouts.
