Result of my first suit training after a very long time :-)

Loose suit fits good. Little bit unstable in the movement and very pleased with the result. 2* 260kg
To control the pressure much more it will be wise to squat singles instead of doubles…. Although I’m no fan squatting singles in my training….
Hopefully my body will respond good after this training session….

First suit training squats after a very long time…..

Some people call it the dark side (@euromike231) 😁 I call it rebels….. So may the force be with me…. 😎
Believe it or not 🤔 First squat suit training after the IPF Worlds Masters 2016 and after my operation…. I will wear a very loose suit from the middle to the top. It will be easy to put the suit fully on. And it will be much to easier to squat and control the pressure… Although that is my thinking 🤔 at this point. Also I wear a Velocity suit instead the Centurion. The Velocity stretches easier and also stretches side ways and up ways. The centurion stretches only up ways.

With the new Titan Sublimated Yellow Jackets I squatted 2 reps

A long time ago in the Galaxy I squatted 225kg classic. And now with the new Titan Sublimated Yellow Jackets I squatted 2 reps 😁
These sleeves are available at www.titanwebshop.eu for € 74,95
.
This was on my limit. I could control my breathing and pressure in my head. So the coming time I will train with much lighter weight. For me personal is this a big breakthrough.

Pause squats 3×3 170kg

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.
