A long time ago in the Galaxy I squatted 225kg classic. And now with the new Titan Sublimated Yellow Jackets I squatted 2 reps 😁

First bench press training in shirt after IPF Worlds Master 2016

First bench press training in shirt after IPF Worlds Masters 2016, few months before my operation…. I’m not allowed to wear really tight gear anymore due the pressure on my head….
Today I worn the old Super Katana, size 54 from @peterbaltus2003 ?
Although it is a very loose shirt, I still can generate enough speed to press 2* 162.5kg. Okay it ain’t the weights I pressed in bench press shirt in the past and this gives me still a great feeling.
With my current circumstances I’m train and challenge myself.

BE THERE TO PREPARE

Finally, the moment I had been looking forward to for a while; an equipped training at Wim’s in his exclusive one of a kind Wim Wam Gym.

This was my second equipped training in preparation for the SBD cup, while it was my first training using my bench shirt.

First things first…
We started with squats, and after an easy raw warmup, I suited up. Today’s plan was one heavy set after warmup. Wim instantly noticed I was going to need to make some technical adjustments to reach depth without losing power. So we decided it would be more beneficial to keep the weight relatively low and do a few more sets to get used to Wim’s technical adjustments. Wim’s adjustments made squatting equipped feel much better and less strenuous.

I’m too $. € . X .Y.  for my shirt…
After squats, we wasted no time and proceeded with bench press. Before equipped bench, I prefer not to do too many warm-up sets; as too much pump makes getting into my shirt a real challenge ?. Hence, after two warm-up sets (70 and 100 kg), I proceeded with equipped sets. My sole goal today was to get the bar as close to my chest as possible. At set five, the bar was a mere centimeter away from my chest, so I was quite satisfied.

As I will be deadlifting equipped next week, I decided to only do a few easy sets this training.

Gains and Fun…
All in all, I am very happy with today’s training at Wim’s. We had a great time, and I gained many useful technical and mental tips. I’m thankful to know someone who can offer me such great support when I need it, and I was very impressed with Wim’s resourcefulness and training intensity.

On top of that I’ve gained an amazing experience and new inspiration that I’ll ad to my preparation for competing at the SBD CUP in the weekend of 22th – 23th September 2018. Make sure to follow me via the livestream.

Untill we meet again

Breath in ….. Breath out ……

Blog by: Ricky Bakker

As you maybe know or do not know, I will not compete at the SBD Cup classic… No I will compete Equipped. Or according to the coach; I’m really going to powerlift. Of course Wim speaks from his experience and perhaps also from nostalgia. 

I and many ‘new’ powerlifters with me, only know powerlifting as classic. Because that the way we started. We ‘know’ only from instagram or people we have seen doing equipped powerlifting. And that is why our opinion is based on that. At least that’s for me. Well I came up with the good idea to run the real race, including preparation as equipped lifter.

Let’s face it. We all think that in once 30/40 kilos comes with your squat, when you wear a  squat suit. That your bench press is increasing at least easy 15/25 kilos. Okay, hold that thought, because  I’ll come back that.

My preparation: The classic part is not going even that bad. It can be better on points. I am satisfied because I learn to lift, learn to think and especially learn to feel. If it goes a day or even a week less, then you can adjust the  weights. The main thing is that you train not how heavy, just how you train.

So that’s fun. Nice to experience that when we talk about ‘light weight’ training. That this is also a way to become stronger.

After a number of half suited squats training and with kneewraps. Last week I got finally my first fullequipped training. Man o man. I can tell you that it’s no fun and added 30/40 kilos on your squat you have to work for it (maybe harder … what do I say? You should hear me) .

 As my title says breath in and breath out, is difficult already. Wearing a squat suit forces you to squat like you’ve never experienced before, unless you’re used to it. It’s weird annd quite nice experience.

Well to finish this story I will do this with a little honesty.
Is this fun, so far I find this 50/50. Why? For a number of reasons. But one of them is: I can not get used of the pain.

Will I advise you to give this it a try?  Yes certainly! Why?  You have to experience full equipment powerlifting. And whether you like it after that or not, that is up to you to judge. But then you have it tried and experienced.

I continue with equipment powerlifting now step by step. First I will  performe on the SBD cup.

Well I go to bed with my knees nodded, because tomorrow I have my first full-suited training with Wim. And that is usually for one person party.

Happy Weekend All!

Oh and if you have any questions, if this has aroused your interest. You can always send me a message via IG (click here!) chat. Because maybe I can tell you the slightly less pleasant side as a starting euipped lifter. Just say it.

Squattted 3x 212,5kg with my old training sleeves :-)

Had today a nice training session with @grootjoostde He did it very well in his equipment training ??
He motivated me to break my personal best with 3 reps on the squats. I controlled the line and my breathing very well… 212,5kg with my training sleeves ?

Being too comfortable…..ADAPT!

There is no growth in being comfortable. But being comfortable is what most of us feel @ their best. The last couple of weeks I came to figure out once again that needing, wanting or waiting for external forces to kick me in the but is not going to happen. So I’m opening myself up to face different things that make me feel (very) uncomfortable.

Like not pressing that snooze button when the alarm goes off. Cycling to where I need to be.  Swimming, using the car less and walking to the grocery store. But what has this to do with powerlifting you may think? Well even changing my grip, stance in the gym and wearing other shoes. Why? Just because I can, and It will introduce me to new things to realize and experience.

Of course I will not do all things named above at once, but for sure I’ll be specific on what I will focus myself on the coming period. Letting go of the old….making room for the new. Back it up and try again.

Sometimes you have to do transitional jobs/ things to get to where you want to go. But that doesn’t mean that it has to kill your dream or the path that you are on. Act the way you want to feel and soon you feel the way you want to act is what a wise individual once told me. I am willing to experience if things really work that way – for me ­-. Rome wasn’t build in ONE day. Neither am I.

Don’t wish for less problems but wish for more skills !!

Funfact: I am Four weeks out of competing at the West European Championships and picking up Equipped lifting again.

Let’s go!

Have a nice week everybody.
