Yep, today I continue my light trainingsession…. You can feel some sore muscles when you have lifted only an empty bar….. therefor some light weights again and tomorrow a restday. Just to figure out how my body will respond on this (light) trainingsessions.
Some warm-up excersises
Squat 2×8 20kg 5×5 50kg
Deadlift 5×5 70kg
Bench press 2×8 20kg 5×5 40kg
5 month ago I stopped training. At that stage I couldn’t handle the problems I got after my operation. At this stage I still suffer from restrictions in my head. My mind isn’t able to handle the same I did before I became ill. Nevertheless I took several different paths to figure out if it will become better. At this stage it is not making a difference which path I take, therefor I hope the neurologist can help me, only I had to wait till next year 🙁 Iris and Ilrish confront me yesterday with the question: So you will wait till then and you won’t do anything health/fitness? ……….. Although I have to wait it is time to do something for my health/fitness……even it is only a little bit… The last two days I was to stiff to show the athletes what I mean which technical improvement I saw and told to them….. The coming weeks will be tough due the sore muscles (myalgia) and it started today. I started with some warm up excersises followed by 5×8 20kg squat, 5×5 50kg conventional deadlift en 5×8 20kg bench press….. See how my body will respond on that tomorrow and the days which followed…… the coming weeks I started to do at least 3 light training session…… Today was number 1…..
For several months I don’t powerlift (train) ………… My mind is disabled on several points….. Most of all I starting to miss the structure I had for so long. Trainingsdays, focus on my lifting goals, which generated the discipline to go for it…. Below the a headline of a newspaper which my mother gave me. This is the same date as the date (30th May 2017) of my first Dutch Championship Powerlift Championship, which I also won 😀 At this stage I feel how important that messages is for me and what I misses at this stage. I have interpreted the text as follows: If you what to be a champion, you have to act like a champion. So you have to do what is needed to achieve your goal. Nothing more and nothing less…. let go of the things (mindsets) which is in your way to achieve your goal….. So it is to figure about (a) new goal(s), which give me focus and give me the inner power which generates the power for the structure and the required discipline…….

Today’s lesson was (is) mindset 🙂 Squatting session went great PB’s were broken in weight vs reps and sometimes you have to feel it when you don’t want to listen 😉 Today biggest learning point was (is) what kind of attitude you can hold with the excersise which give you the biggest challenge……. Do every set (rep) like you are lifting on a meet….. When you withhold yourself, you will achieve exactly what the reason what is causing your withold….. 😉 So when you want to improve your worst excersis, for example, bench press, train like you train your best exercise.
The biggest difference starts with your (internal) attitude. Otherwise stop training your worst exercise, because it will give you a lot of energy improving your better and best exercise. Conventional deadlift, standing on block, went great. They surprised their selves. What you can see, it all about focus on yourself, during your training (and meet ofcourse).
Final set squat by Iris. When you don’t want to listen, then you have to feel it. What is your idea about this opinion? Next week Saturday Ricky and Claudia will join the training. I’m curious if they are looking forward to it…….
