Announcement & confusion together make it tough too training today :lol:

The announcement is that I will (hope) to participate at the Dutch Nationals Masters (equipped) 21st of May.  This announcement makes myself a little confusioned 😀 Participation means that I have to hold an eye on my borders. So I don’t get too enthausiastic and put too much weight on the bars, so the pressure will be too much in my head.

I’m very glad that my new way of training created this possibility. The decission makes me very happy 🙂

I don’t want to leave the platform through the backdoor 😆 and this meet will give me options for the future (comings months). Because of this participations I keep the option open to be able to participate at the European & Worlds Masters (equipped) If I will be participate I don’t know yet. I know I liked the meets very much together with my international powerlifting friends and in specific with Peter Baltus and Michael Kalter. If I will be participate I have to try out to wear loose suits / shirt, because the ‘normal’ tight suits / shirt generates too much compresion (and therefor too much pressure on my head) …….. This will be an option after 21th of May.

Goals for 21th of May will be:
Squats 220kg (with wraps)
Bench press 127,5kg
Deadlift 230kg

Today’s training was tough (most off all mentally) and therefore I took a little bit more time to train. Workout lasted 105 minutes instead of 90 minutes. The weights, sets and reps were the same as last week Monday. The 4-in-1 squats are really killing me 😀
