Hi, my name is Jiří (George) and I like to devote myself to strength training without competitive ambitions. I do not come from English-speaking countries, so I apologize for eventually mistakes in English… All units will be listed in the metric system.
Let me briefly introduce myself:
• Czech Republic
• 22 years
• 185.5 cm / (soon) 100 kg
• current nutrition: Intermittent Fasting
• future nutrition: Ketogenic Diet
Conventional deadlift - 250 kg (with Toro belt), 5x230 kg (with Toro belt), 6x220 kg (with Toro belt)
Power squat - 220 kg (with Toro belt), 6x180 kg (with Toro belt)
Bench press - 141 kg, 11x100 kg
C-G bench press - 130 kg
Pin press (pins just above the chest) - 137.5 kg, 4x130 kg, 6x120 kg
Rack lockout - 200 kg
Dips (BW) - 200x (overall)
Conventional deadlift - 250 kg (done)
Power squat - 220 kg (done)
Bench press - 150 kg (not yet done)
The name of my log contains “bench press” because I want to focus on it in the long term. Bench press is the most entertaining to me because it is biomechanically the easiest and everyone is asking, though I know that due to body composition, he will never be good.
I do not like the classic powerlifting because it is a poor, ungrateful and unattractive sport. Maybe what now I’m writing will sound stupid, but I do not need to train deadlift and squats because I have accomplished my goals on both exercises and I feel no motivation. They are no longer the main exercises for me. They are often replaced by their variants.
I have to say that in terms of training, the most helpful training was written by mentor Boris Sheiko. I very much appreciate Boris Sheiko and I consider him the best power coach in a world that absolutely has no competition in practice and in the IPF federation…Local strength ramps 5/3/1 and 3/2/1 by Thibaudeau did not help me to improve at all, and they meant a loss of precious time for me. My personal opinion is that Christian Thibaudeau did not correctly understand the Russian training methods and misinterprets them (it’s just an opinion that I do not want to offend anyone).
I am currently in the process of preparing for my modified 24-week wave periodization with a focus on the bench press.
