I’m a 28 year old lifter from the Netherlands. In december the Dutch Raw Championships will take place. I am going to compete in the -83 kilo class.
Currently i only train beltless. Got tired of all the belt stuff and i really feel beltless training makes me stronger.
The guidelines i am using for my training are taken from 5/3/1 and adapted to my own preferences. I’m experimenting with overhead work since a while and less bench. Only one flat bench training a week, nowhere near max. I feel like my shoulders are the bottleneck and that’s reflected in the oh weights. One time i did a same experiment for about 6 weeks and hit my highest bench number ever, stupidly i neglected the shoulders again after that.
I’m running 2-3 cycles in a row and after that i deload and do a (mock) meet. Kinda like the cube method.
Well thats about it, i guess. I’m going to post my trains now.
Oh yeah, my best alltime 1rm’s in training are:
- 215 kilo belt only squat @ 90 kilo bw
- 250 kilo belt only deadlift @ 92 kilo bw
- 140 kilo paused bench @ 90 kilo bw
My best raw meet ever was:
205 + 130 + 227,5 @ about 87,5 kilo bw (lonnngg time ago)
