IT’S GETTING KINDA HECTIC

Hi Everyone,

It’s Sunday again and that means…blogtime. Not every Sunday as you have been noticing, but for sure every now and then. Yesterday was my first equipped training in my brand new suit. Let me tell you…….I (think) I never felt so much physical discomfort during a training before.  Two weeks a go I got in my suit for the first time and was not able to squat 70KG properly. When coach told me that we would try out the new suit this weekend I thought it would be for squats only and not even all of them. Just some reps and then get out of it. Oh gosh what was I mistaking. I learned in the hard way that assumption is the mother of all f*ck ups. Pardon my French. Yes indeed, that’s for sure the case.

I wore the new suit the whole training, that means for squats, bench and deadlifts. Diclaimer: that was a choice. But getting in the suit was a hell of a job. So when I got asked to take it out (inbetween bench and deadlifts I chose to keep it on). BIG MISTAKE. My legs were screaming for help the entire training and still are.

Since I am a GENIUS, before training, I was so smart to rub some warming lotion on my legs to activate the muscles. Not taking in to account that I had to get in the suit using plastic bags over my legs. So within 5 minutes in to the training I was burning like hell; friction + sweat + friction + light weights + more friction = CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. I’ll never make that mistake again in my entire life. Coach was having the time of his life…laughing so hard, that he couldn’t even put on the kneewraps. Telling me that history of 20 years ago is repeating itself. Somethings never change I guess. The equipment and time area changes, but the intelligence of the people stays the same.

In to the training:
Squats went good, especially for being in my suit for the first time. I’m close to hitting depth and am focusing on a steady walk out with my new suit. Coach @wimwam1 having my back at all times means a lot to me. Even if it means putting me under a lot of pressure to deal with myself and getting things done. Bench pressing in my new shirt is something I’m getting more and more in to. Bench pressing is a piece of art by itself and am still putting effort in mastering this the best I can, even with those strong long arms of mine. At deadlifts I’ve noticed that It’s even more important to keep my technique on point in this new suit. Not acting and looking like a banana will make a lot of difference. The tailor will see me very soon to get it altered.

Furthermore there are some other things that need my attention & I’ll be working on that the coming weeks. Paying more attention on keeping my daily schedule on point, making myself and taking rest a priority again. This week I’ve learned that taking charge of things is actually not the same as taking charge of yourself. Putting myself on the backseat, instead of the driversseat, is not contributing to where I want and need to go. So it’s time to switch it up!!!! It’s all part of the game and process that we call life.

Don’t forget to turn up on this page to follow my equipped journey every once in a while. Untill we meet again.

Untill we meet again

Iris & Ilrish Kensenhuis both nominated for “ViVa krachtpatsers”….. vote!

Vote on the following lin: https://www.viva.nl/viva400/krachtpatsers/ 

V I V A 4 0 0 Yesterday we discovered that @ilyscious and @inspirised were nominated for the #viva400 amongst some of the best and the coolest female athletes in the Netherlands . We are nominated in the badass strength category ‘krachtpatsers’. As powerlifters that is !

HIGH FIVES AND GOOD VIBES (my first blog on philiftsopy.com…..woot woot)

That sums these last few weeks up. And let me tell you it didn’t come easy. There is still plenty of more work left to do. While I’m writing this blog, after a pretty long and nice equipped training session with @wimam1 & @ilyscious I realize some thing; HIGH VIFES and GOOD VIBES are aspects I focus on and invest time in to fuel me up and keep me on track.
.

 

At this moment I’m five weeks and five days out for Competing at the WK EQUIPPED 2018. This will be my third equipped meet and 1th WK EQUIPPED meet ever to attend. And boy oh boy I’m very excited. Last week while supporting @rockstarricky and @grootjoostde at the SBD CUP 2018 someone asked me what style of powerlifting I like more…RAW or EQUIPPED.

I had to think a sec to answer that question. The answer is I don’t prefer one above the other, at the same time I’ve noticed in a short amount of time I grew a lot of appreciation for the dynamics and flow of equipped powerlifting. These features come to mind when I think about equipped powerlifting and somehow they relate to my personality. You can’t cheat your way out of your lifts and just like in life….there are no SHORT CUTS. I’m proud to say that it teaches me a lot about myself, life and lifting in general.

Last week and this week @ilyscious and @wimwam1 helped me to get me in my new suit. I’m the most impatient person in this planet. The magic word for me is STRETCH, when it comes down to clothing, quality time, being lazy, spending money, watching TV and enjoying FOOD. I like to stretch all of those activities. But my suit does not have any time for that. I just have to adapt, twist, pull, turn and go with the flow to get in to that thing. And the funniest part of it all; I can’t do it by myself. Want to have a good laugh for today (or the rest of this year) ?? Be sure to watch me trying to RUN the WORLD like a PRO *not so much* 🙂

Stay tuned on this site to see more bits and bites of my roallercoller ride to prepare for this meet.

Untill we meet again
XOXO
Iris
