Today I registered myself for the Classic Powerlifitng Nationals Master (I), which will be held on 4th of February at Fox Gym. The coming weeks I will figure out if I really will/able to participate. Most important it is for me a motivation to continue my trainingsessions.
The last days it was great in houses ‘Wamsteeker’. The sisters Kensenhuis stayed over and we had great time during the light weight trainingsessions. Good for our motivation.
Tomorrow a big day for me. The neuropsychological tests will taken place. 20th January the test results will be discussed. Hopefully next week I will get the results of the MRI, from last week Thursday.
Today still recovery from Sunday and doing light weight deadlift excersises. Doing light weight is feeling good. The sisters Kensenhuis did their program and it was also light for one of them 😉 😆 Also Sven den Houting came by to train and did one of his first suited squat training for his Nationals end of February. He squatted very easily 🙂
Although it is Christmas, it is always time to train….. ofcourse……
Like the old together with Michael Kalter and the rest of the boys. Big memories when I was not feeling that well and just came by to open the Gym…. Jos Verhagen (my trainer) told me: get your stuff and join the training. The training you skip you cann’t catch up….. And your competitors are you one step ahead. The good old days 🙂
Today light squat & bench session which I use to recover from yesterday training. Merry Christmas…. 🙂
On 20th November I start up my again, after inspiration by some lovely people. Most important for me is to keep the pressure (out) of my head. There for I’m lifting with my mouth open and bring my breathing towards my stomic. The mean focus in my training is my joy, technique, lifting easy “light” and generate the mindset what required these things 🙂
In my blog you read that I trained with light weights the last 5 weeks and today I had my “TEST”day…. just to show some people that I can still lifting some (light) weights 🙂
1st attempt 200kg
2nd attempt 220kg
3rd attempt 232,5kg This attempt reminds my of Bill Kazmaier his deadlift attemtp at the Worlds 1983 😉 So I will hold the bar next time and won’t throw/smash it on the ground 😀
Yesterday I had my MRI scan and the noise make me very tired. Even I know it the too much noise is killing me, this even confirm it 🙂 Next week Friday I had my neuropsycholy tetst and the outcome will be discussed on 22th of January. I’m pleased that the people in the hosipital are helping me on that short notice. Thank you #noordwestzh Noord West Ziekenhuisgroep.
This morning I had an appointment with the neuropsychologist. The intake lasted 1 hour. This week I will be called by the Hospital to plan a date to do the neuropsychology test. Also this Thursday I have the MRI, so the steps are taken to give me more information about my mental state / mental loadability. I’m pleased that these are taken.
Ofcourse the training from yesterday had physical and mental impact, so I did very light recovery training today. The same as I did Saturday.
Today I had my final semi heavy light training session. After this only light weight training session for next week test on Christmasday 🙂 Most important I’m pleased that I made the right twist (focus) in my mind and fullfill the next step. Last week my heavy light session was:
Yesterday evening it was a tough training session. The light weights felt heavier like it felt on Tuesday. Nevertheless it gave me a good feeling. Today or tomorrow I had or have to do my final semi heavy light weigth training session for next week ‘meet’ with myself. Due my tired mind, I followed my intuition and doing less weight as planned. One of mine believes is: You may decided to train with less weight and don’t more weights as planned.
Therefore I did only:
Squat 5×3 90kg
Deadlift 5×3 110kg
Bench press 5×3 70kg
Most important that my mind will rest in the coming 24 hours for my semi heavy light weight training. Will my squats today 50%, my deadlift 52,5% and bench press 63% of tomorrow semi heavy light weights? To stay on track it is okay to make 1 or 2 step backwards and still stay in contact with your goal(s)…..
My next week goal (at least) is making a double with 8 reds and colars on deadlifts…. 😉 What will it be on squats and bench press…. ?
