Yeah, it is easier said than done mate. It's just doing this kind of stuff over and over again, a lot of it ends up coming down to confidence.

 

Take a look at my final deadlift in the video of the meet, I might look calm but honestly my heart was beating out of my chest. I knew I had lifted 190kg before, but not weighing 2kg less than I normally do. Plus I had only gone up to 185kg in my training, so I really didn't know if I could do it as I walked up to the bar. That's why you can hear me yell something at the start and pull the bar to try and fire myself up. Think I even shouted out "GOT IT" when I realised I had the lift, lol. You've just gotta be willing to push the envelope every now and then, that's the difference between someone like myself and most of the regulars that I see at the gym every day.

 

Conceptualise, visualise and achieve.

Do you cycle your workouts, if you do how many cycles do you go through in a year.

I train more instinctively, where I use my colleges gym which is only open 12pm-2pm and then 4-7pm I don't have much freedom, its also ridiculously busy so I do what I can when I can, its usually alright but I just stick to the main lifts and improving them. Once I've had a heavy session ill have a couple of medium/light ones before going for anymore personal bests (:

Sounds really cool

 

Yeah, weekend was cool. Picked up a massive playhouse for the girls yesterday, took about 10 of us to move it onto a trailer and get it back to my place. Then had a pretty solid training session in the afternoon, my strength is always good about a week after a meet

Well in the future maybe, although I think I'll look great bright orange/brown in budgie smugllers (speedos).. Haha nah it'll definitely be in powerlifting man, but like I said not anytime soon, its just an idea at the moment there's a couple of clubs just across the water in southampton and portsmouth that I've found online
