110kg (~242lbs) x 8 (PR) 🙃 I didn't do my whole training today. I'm sooo sore and stressed and afraid of getting ill. I have to be fit next weekend and especially tomorrow! Can't go to the gym for the next 3 days. Not so good. But I did some bench after deadlifts and I hope this will be enough. Will be back at the gym next monday! If I survive the next few days. But I planned on doing so! I can do it! 👊 Just gotta find time for a few quiet minutes.
This amazing and extremely comfortable pair of leggings will soon be available on our website 😍🌎

I couldn’t get the bar set right on my back.

’s verhaal over het (tijdelijk) stoppen van competitief powerliften: ・・・
Deze post heb ik nu al vier keer herschreven, omdat het zo lastig is voor mij.
Ik heb vorige week een zeer pijnlijke knoop door gehakt. Ik heb besloten voor langere tijd te stoppen met competitief powerlifting, om een aantal redenen, waaronder mijn gezin, blessures, werk, algehele gezondheid en overige veranderende prioriteiten. .
Zo komt er een (voorlopig) einde aan elf jaar powerlifting in wedstrijdverband. Ik zeg niet ‘definitief’ omdat ik nooit weet hoe ik me over een x aantal jaar voel en wat mijn doelen dan zijn. Ik blijf actief binnen deze sport: met de gym @sccpowerhouse
en natuurlijk ook de coaching.
Deze beslissing hangt samen met een andere beslissing: namelijk om flink wat gewicht te verliezen. Ik ben het beu om me elke dag moe en slecht te voelen. Ik wil mijn energie terug. Ik wil kunnen spelen met mijn kinderen zonder telkens buiten adem te zijn en te moeten gaan zitten. Ik ga dus een ander trainingstraject in. Anderhalve week geleden begonnen en inmiddels 2,5 kilo kwijt.
Het was een hell of a ride, bedankt allemaal 👍
My push training work consist of explosive press ups followed by heavy bench press to build up maximal strength as fast as possible
After that I’ll perform accessory work to build up the muscles involved in the bench (triceps, delts) and today I performed a “burn out” set beforehand to kick everything into overdrive!
1️⃣ set of all out effort (with a moderate-ish load) to stress the body! I was close to failing on my last repetition but managed to get it and swerve the “roll of shame” or need assistance
Bear in mind, a single set is enough - otherwise you’ll fatigue hard for the rest of the session

315x1 touch n go at 197.6 bodyweight.
Feel pretty good about this press considering it came fairly fatigued after 5 working sets (250 2x3, 275 2x2, and 290 1x1 all completed with a heavy band and a soft pause).
Looking forward to a fresh touch n go bench attempt between 335-350 at (hopefully) sub-200 bodyweight within the next few weeks (once my current bench cycle is complete) as long as I don't get too fat in the interim 🥓🍕🌮🍔🍟
If people are interested, I'll post the current spreadsheet as well as the accessory work I'm using to peak on bench on my website.
Gonna go ice my elbows now ☠️☠️☠️☠️

Couldn’t decide what to do at the gym yesterday 🤷🏼♂️. 50lb dumbbells and 405 on the leg press. Tough decisions man. Thanks to @hunter_golovin
for the horrible angle of me, we’ll get a better one next time.
tank is so comfortable. 11/10 recommend it. Getting a pump for this picture was a complete fail too lmao.

is you agains yourself, it’s what you put in to get the results you want. No one can do it for you, today’s Monday, Issa new week and it’s grind time!
GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry). Had a good deadlift session and back day today. Shoutout to @vitalyi_fitness
for the amazing shirt. Super comfortable and super light. Definitely go check him out, he’s got some dope content. And a shoutout to @donchris44
for being one of if not the hardest workers in the gym. He’s at the gym every day working his ass off getting better day by day.
405 lb deadlift raw for 5 reps. First time doing it without a belt and I’m quite happy. I’m only going up from here just watch me.
Had a dope ass workout with my man @tyrell_bailey.
Got a meannnnn ass pump. Definitely go check out his account, he’s got some good ass content and he just got sponsored.
New PR on incline bench. Could’ve got 4 but didn’t wanna force it.
Find a goal, have the proper mindset, and grind your way to the top. We all start somewhere, it’s just a matter of finishing what you started.
When you have dinner reservations at 5:30 but you need to go the gym at 4:30, good night instagram fam
This post is going to be for the future me. In this photo I weighed about 205, it was a cut that went bad and I lost too much muscle. I weight about 225 now with much more muscle than what I had in this photo.
I would LOVE to get down to 195 but it’s a process and a long grind, especially if I want to keep a lot of muscle. Yes there will be cheat days or cheat meals but that’s to keep me sane, not to make me insane by dieting too hard.
The cut I just started yesterday is so far so good. If I want to have the PowerBuiding physique I desire, then I need to do this cut right.
Goodnight Instagram fam❤️.
💢DOUBLE TAP FOR GAINZ💢
Here’s a #throwbacktuesdays
for ya. This was in December around Christmas time, form wasn’t that good compared to now. But it’s all about progress and getting better together!
This is so true. Goodnight instagram fam ❤️
Today I will do what others won’t so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.
🔥 SWIPE TO TRANSFORM 🔥
I started my fitness journey about 3 years ago, first it was just to get in better shape for sports but boy am I happy that I got addicted to the gym. I weighed about 240lbs in the first picture and about 205lbs in the last. Seeing results of hard work and dedication is what pushes me to be better than what I was yesterday.
I love me some close grip cable rows. One of my favorite exercises to make my back thick. Fuck I need a tan lmao.
Goddamn what a day at the gym. I was stupid tired but I still had to get it in. If I want to be the best I need to train like I’m the best. Kinda excited to start to track macros again tomorrow
This app is going to be useful again since I’m to start to track my macros again. Haven’t been the cleanest lately and I want to change that to better myself. If I want to be as strong as possible and as aesthetic as possible then I need to focus on the grind 🤙🏻
“No matter the obstacle that you go through in your life there is one thing you can be SURE of…
It is designed to make you BETTER.”
Shit takes time, but when you’re on track with what you’re doing, results will come
Had a horrible workout today. Not sure if work killed me but still gotta get the grind in. Tomorrow will be a better day for sure
I’m just looking out into the future debating to hit arms or to hit arms.
Think about it, and do your research kids🤔
🔥 MOTIVATIONAL POST🔥
I apologize in advance for the long post
Life is a grind no matter what you’re doing. If you want to make it big in something you’re doing, you absolutely need to grind to make it there. People have dreams in life and they don’t accomplish them because they either gave up on that dream because they didn’t believe in themselves or because they listened to other people hatting on them. Then sadly they live with regret wishing they tried harder and never gave up, my best advice is to JUST KEEP GOING. No matter what your goal is or what your dream is, the only thing holding you back is yourself. Stop being afraid of failing and learn from your mistakes. Fuck the nonsense and the hatters, believe in YOU. The reason for this is because I want to look back at it when I accomplish my goals and say look where I started and now look where I am. I love you guys ❤️.
