Hi new shirt! Bye sleeves! 😉😂 This was supposed to be an oversized Metallica shirt, but fits (me) like a regular shirt....I.mean tanktop, because who needs those sleeves? 😉Now where's the sun/summer/hot weather?? 😒 #metallica#metal#rock
Week 8 session B. Went off piste today, my 90kg x 3 strict press felt decent so had a crack at 100kg for a 1RM PB. Sticky in the middle, but I'll take it. Thanks to @st0ffie_dmf for the much needed pre-lift back slaps. Deadlift was the last of 8 singles at 230kg. Last one usually moves the best for me as I've warmed up by then! No celebratory goodies for the PB as I'm cutting for the comp 😔
The road to 500kg!!😈 Mijn pr's op 28-06-2017, allen met goede techniek, RAW en zonder spotter. Want als je met hulp of een slechte techniek toch je PR opschrijft hou je alleen maar jezelf voor de gek😉 Bodybuilding en Powerlifting zijn twee verschillende sporten. Ik zelf combineer deze twee en dit noemen we Powerbuilding. De meeste mannen zien er helaas sterker uit dan ze daadwerkelijk zijn (geen compound oefeningen trainingen, enkel pompen voor de show etc.) ik geef zelf de voorkeur aan sterker zijn dat ik eruit zie💪🏼😏 Nog maar 5kg tot de almachtige 500kg total!!! Ik zal tegen die tijd filmpjes plaatsen van de big three. Thnx for the support👊🏼 Stay hungry!!😡🔥
What does it take to get ready for a workout?
I am beginning to understand this better each day as I get older – or should I say, wiser. Or maybe just more experienced. When I was in my 20’s, I could roll into the gym and start a workout immediately with no problem. Now... it’s a different story.
Warm-ups are essential to review the mechanics of the more complicated movements in the workout. There are several components that we, as coaches, will use to get you ready, and we generally start by working on mobility drills. This can be something from banded stretches, lacrosse balls, foam rolling, dynamic movements. The primary goal here is to get the major muscle groups that are going to be utilized in the workout ready. Usually followed by some quicker drills that focus on increasing the heart rate. We want to get ready the muscles and joints for the work that is demanded of them. For example, if we are doing squats in the strength cycle or the WOD, you can expect to see a variation of lunges to get the hips nice and open; if we have a pressing motion, then we will target the shoulders.
At CFN we find it important to review the movements in the workout as part of our warm up; this is a great time to spend on technique. Most of our workouts are less than 20 minutes, which allows us to fill the rest of the hour with time to address weaknesses and/or focus on more complex movements such as the snatch, HSPU technique, OHS, etc, etc...
If there’s oly lifting involved in the workout, its important to also demonstrate before the WOD, so that you can have a point of reference for good movement. It’s also a great time to discuss some of the common faults (in lifting) that we could potentially see during class.

Another one from @fitconuk taken by @peetfitnessmarbella messing around as usual taking it seriously doesn't mean you can't have fun and enjoy the day, so many people don't even talk to each other back stage so it's great to meet like minded people ✌🏽
Too many people pretending to be interested in shit they aren't really interested in, so people can continue pretending to be interested in them.
They want to see you do well, but never better than them. Remember that 💭 🐍
