Today I had my final equipped training for the Nationals. Finished the training with 3×2 squats, deadlift and bench press. The weights are approx. the weight of my final warm-up set for my openers next week at the Nationals. Short video of my final sets.
Glad that today my big friend Peter was helping me out today. He motivated to do an extra step during this training and I went pretty well today. Wearing my loose suit and shirt and still able to lifting a little bite more (with 2 reps) what is required to qualify myself for the EPF Europeans and IPF Worlds Powerifting Masters. Peter is coaching me at the Nationals in two weeks. More info about the Nationals, click here!
Today I did a little step back for next week Friday training. Next week will be my ‘heaviest’ training together with my big friend Peter. Looking forward to have an oldskool training session together. I know he is able to give me some extra boost. Classic squats went very well, wearing the new Sublimated Titan Yellow Jackets (click here!)
On Friday I do my ‘heaviest’ work out…… So big suit and shirt 🙂 Over 2 weeks my big friend comes to help me out, so I hope I can make the next step and make the right depth with squat in suit. Short video of today’s training.
Next month is my final Powerlifting Nationals and I hope I will be able to qualify myself the European- & World Powerlifting Championship Masters. My goal is to finish my powerlifting career at the Worlds Masters in October this year. I started competing Powerlifting in march 1985 at the age of 15. This year I will become 50.
Tomorrow it will be 2 years after my brain surgery and I’m pleased how it is going. Nevertheless I have to deal with issues after this surgery and this makes it hard to continue training for powerlifting meets.
Dealing daily with my energy level, combined with work & training, is hard for me. So I train now 3 to 4 times a week for 1 hour. Compare this what I normally did, you can imagine is hard to generate progress in my strength. Even I’m pleased what I’m able of to lift today. Below a short video of today’s training.
