Relieved, finally I bench press more than 145kg. Few weeks ago I failed on 147,5kg and today I got it. Last Sunday I'm inspired by the big benchers on the Gym meet. Altough I have my strugle with RAW bench, I'm glad I made small progress. When I will bench 150kg and a made my sets with 132,5kg, that will be a base to reach the 160kg and sets with 140kg in the first quarter (beginning of the second quarter) of 2015. Today I'm very happy with this achievement and gives my confidence and motivation to get the 150kg next week...

Week 7 day 1 deadlift session, this week setting up for week 8.....

Yesterday witness of the first 300kg bench press in the Netherlands and highest wilks single lift in the Netherlands. Now back to the (my) 'real' world. Week 7 is the week before the heaviest week 'called week 8'. This week means setting myself up for breaking new PR's next week. New PR's after leg injure (muscle torn) and new weight class. Day 1 means deadlifting and I still felt my legs from the squats of Friday. So I was glad that I had to do less weight. I finished with 2x5 185kg (no belt). Next week 220kg (no belt) is on the program.

Back on track with squats ...... in the sleepstream of Peter Bongers :-)

It was nice to train with mr. squat today. This gave me a big impuls to get back into his sleepstream. Peter is getting in shape with for the RAW nationals. He easily squatted a double with 230kg and finished with 5x205kg. Training together motivates. When I squatted 3x150kg, I thought: today I will squat me sets with sleeves so this must gave me support and I want to squat 5 reps with 185kg. In my opinion this squat session was the best in all the weeks of this program. Because I fullfill my sets I did a single with 205kg.
