Just for protecting myself I lower the weight of today's training session. Squats 3x 180kg-185kg-190kg instead breaking the 200kg. Also with pause/box squats I did 3x3 135kg instead of breaking the 150kg. With deadlift I did 3x 190, 195, 200 instead of breaking the 220kg. With bench I did 3x5 115kg, instead over the 125kg. I want to put some weights on the bar coming Friday. So rest and low weight training session are helping to realize my next step.

Step by step my strength is improving. Today I was able to squat 3x265kg (with my loose suit). Next week I want to make doubles with my competition suit. After squat I bench pressed 3x135kg and pressed with my low cut super kantana 3x200kg (each rep closer to my chest). Next week also doubles with bench press. Sumo deadlift is each training going better and the feeling of the past is returning. Today I pulled each 3x232,5kg and I'ainming to do 2x245 / 250 next week. Thanks for Peter and Peter for helping me out. This gives me a good impuls to work hard during my training.

Squat went great. Finally I squatted 3x200kg, without wraps. This is the first time I squatted 200kg without wraps, after my leg injure. My goal to gain 5kg each week till the Worlds. I still wear my loose/old suit, straps down. Just in case to protect my leg. Technique wasn't great and most important for myself is that I squatted the 200kg again. Pause/box squats went set by set better, 3x3 150kg. Deadlift, without belt, is going steady forward each week. I finished deadlift with 3x217,5kg. That is 7,5kg more than last week Monday. Bench press went much better than Friday.

O yes, this was my heaviest work-out mentally and physically in months. Most important I was enjoying the whole time. Warm-up squats went ok and when I did 3x210kg, I thought "what is going on, this felt heavy" :-) So my next set I had to push my self. I worn my "old and wide" suit. 3x240kg went ok and the following set 3x250kg was the best in my opinion. 3x255kg I have to work hard. Working hard is no problem. When you are able to work hard, you know you are becoming stronger :-) With bench press I had also a strange experience.
