Please describe a typical day in your life?
I start at 6.30 in the morning. Have breakfast at 7.00 in the morning.
I start at the office (I also work for a law firm) at 8.30 till 17.30.
Most of the time I go to the gym to train and/or teach my group lessons.
During the day I eat 6 or 7 times small meals.
I try to go the bed at 22.30 and after a good night sleep I start again at 6.30.
Only in the weekend I start one hour later
and during the weekend I take more rest
and try to find some quality time for friends and family.
Please tell me something about your daily training routine?
I train 4 times a week and combine the training with my group lessons.
I train chest and back together. I train shoulders, biceps and triceps together.
I train legs apart. The fourth day I do special plyometric training for my legs.
The difference on and off season is the plyometric training.
I only do the plyometric training when I prepare for a competition.
When it is necessary I also do extra cardio in the morning when I am training for a competition.
What are your future plans for 20102/2013?
As said above: my main goal is the Arnold Classic in Ohio 2013.
I have been there in 2011, but a few weeks before this competition
my father died so my focus and shape were not as they seem to be.
I hope I can make it in 2013!
But to get there I have to do the Dutch Grand Prix
(Juliette Bergmann Classic) on 9 December.
I start my preparation next week!
