My final Nationals went very good. With big help of my friend Peter Baltus, coaching me during the meet. Michael Kalter my other was also competing so it as a memorable day for. Like the old days when we 3 lifted together.
The day before I felt some nerves I didn’t feld for a long time. Like I did when I started competing. Knowing that this were my final Nationals made me tense (sickly).
The competition went very good. 1st attempt squat gaves me a little pressure and I corrected the movement when I came out of the whole. My final squat 275kg was the best and just 10kg below the National record. In my loose suit I can control the pressure in my head very well 🙂
Bench press went a little bit worse than hoped during the warm-up and therefore I didn’t push myself to much. And finished with 172,5kg.
Deadlifting I do without suit, because also a loose suit generates to much pressure with the liftoff I don’t want that. With my opener 230kg I made the qualify total for the Europeans & Worlds Powerlifting Masters II, so mission accomplished 🙂 In my 2nd attempt I did 242,5kg and in my 3rd and final I felt the emotion that is was my final attempt at the Nationals. I pulled 252,5kg and made a total of 700kg. This is 40kg below the National record, so this will be a nice goal to lift at the Europeans 😉
Thank you all for the support.
