So this is my day off, no training! I want to write and post some clips of people that have inspired me from the day I started getting more serious with my workouts. Some of them are somewhat “famous” and some of them are just people at my gym! Some of them represent the reason I started training and competing in powerlifting, I will come back to that another time!
So lets start!
A good friend,and also the reason I have reached my goals and got the results I have today!( I’ll write more about him another time) He already has two Norwegian records in benchpress at the tender age of 17 years old!
Tor Herman Omland:
Tor Herman goes under the term “famous” and is one of the people in my gym! I’m glad to have someone like Tor at my gym. He always helps me with my technique and when I’m having workouts with my gear. He has trained seriously for 17 years now and he’s got an enormous amount of knowledge about powerlifting! Old video of him, I think he’s good for 400 squat, 310 bench, and 330 deadlift!
Dave…well, Dave is one of the people I cant get enough of! He’s realy passionate about training and a lot of other things in life! When he wants something, he goes for it 110%! If I find videoes,articles and other stuff I can find of Dave I’ll always check it out!
When people talked about muscles back in the day,I remember always thinking about Arnold. I guess that goes for a alot of you out there. He has always been a hero for me and thousands of others. Everyone wants to look like Arnold! He will always be Mr. Olympia no 1!
Reading “Strong Enough? Thoughts from Thirty Years of Barbell Training” really opened my eyes for Mark! I like the way he writes and discusses everything about traning philosophically! If you still haven’t read the book, be sure to do it!
These are some of the guys that helped/helps me on my way! I think it’s always important to copy the “professionals” if you are a beginner like me. If you want to be like them, just do what they do! I want to thank all these people, you have been everything and MORE for me over the years!
