Weight Lifting


Get weight lifting with the person in the know


Bodybuilding simply won’t be bodybuilding without some serious weight lifting. Body building is all about changing the muscles in the body and by lifting weights you are taking the first steps towards a new body.  

Weight lifting is however not something that you should just start doing on your own. There are important factors to keep in mind, and if you don’t do the lifts correctly you can seriously hurt yourself and that could take weeks, even months to heal.

Weight training has a rich history – even Hippocrates wrote about it. Progressive resistance training can be dated back to at least Ancient Greece with legend saying that wrestler Milo of Croton trained himself by carrying a newborn calf on his back every day until the calf was fully grown.

If you want to start with weight lifting, without the need for cattle, it’s a good idea to get into contact with someone who knows what they are doing. One such person is Hennie Kotze. Hennie is a South African bodybuilding champion that has been on stages across the world – and also walking away with many trophies.  

When you are in the gym, don’t try to match the weights lifted by others – go as heavy as you can. Form is however crucially important. If you don’t have the correct form you will not get the desired result, or, as said earlier, hurt yourself. Hennie also suggests to rather focus on compound movements. This will give you better quality muscles.

Training Schedule

Throughout my bodybuilding career I would say a big challenge for me was to prove that conditioning rules and not size.

I train 5 to 6 days per week. I prefer to train 1 muscle group per day and I totally exhaust that group with 4 - 5 exercises.
