Week 3 is a fact. I’m getting the hang of strolling down the city with my gymbag 3 times a week and every Saturday @wimwam’s place. Long days, medium sleep, and enough to eat. This week I’ve noticed that there are some things that drain me. Mostly because of some uninspiring and uncomfortable conversations I had this week.
I’ve told my self to stay on track by just focusing on myself and the things I want to do. Preparation and consistency do lead to succes when applied in the right way. It’s time to dust off some of these skills I possess in that department
Lately ’m keeping myself on track by;
Ø going to bed on time
Ø reduce the use of my telephone (especially before bedtime)
Ø packing my gymbag the day before
Ø making sure I have enough food in the fridge ?
Ø pick out my clothes the day before (that’s how I get so color coordinated)
I’ve noticed that sticking to these basic and simple things makes my life much easier. It saves me a lot of time and energy that I can use for other things. But what does this have to do with powerlifting you may ask? Well for me it means a lot. If I am slacking on some basic things it eventualy costs me energy I could have used on my performance in the gym; every set and rep. And powerlifting al so consists out of routines. I don’t even know how many squats, bench presses and deadlifts I’ve done these past 2 years.
Slacking is a forbidden word when it comes down to working out with coach Wim. He warned me at the beginning of the training that I would get to know him even more if I thought light about the (light) training. If I get busted on doing so I’d be in for a surprise And I don’t like surprises so I rather be on my A game. And if @ilyscious does so I need to make sure I don’t follow her lead ?
Last central training went as planned. I’m getting used to wearing my suit backwards more and more. I’m excited for benchpress every training in a good way. And squats are improving too.
I can say I’m on track for now and aiming to keep doing so. Stay tuned for my powerlift adventures on this page to see If I keep doing so.
Untill we meet again
