Just some short info on me and my training background:
I’ve been lifting weights for about 1 year now. Most of the time I have wasted doing stupid bobybuilding programs. Not to long ago I got really interested in powerlifting. I’ve always wanted to be strong, and powerlifting is a good benchmark for absolute strength.
Not to long ago I did my first cycle of sheiko training. It was tough, but I made awesome gains, so I was very pleased. Before sheiko my PR’s were 95 kg in squat, 95 kg bench and a 135 deadlift. After it was 100, 125, 160. Now I have started another round of sheiko and I expect to increase my total by ~ 25 kg this time. I managed 60 kg the first time, but a lot of that was probably due to improved technique.
Bodyweight: ~ 115 kg (too much, yes)
Squat: 125 kg
Bench: 100 kg
Deadlift: 180 kg
My goals for the program:
Squat: 135 kg
Bench: 105 kg
Deadlift: 190 kg
I’m done with the first week of the cycle. Generally it was a good week with mostly light lifts. Especially the benching feels really light, so perhaps I might be able to reach 110 instead of just 105 this time. The squat’s are slightly heavier, yet still pretty light. The deadlifts were kinda heavy, but for some reason deadlifts always feel heavy no matter what for me.
I will be back with a log from the first day of sheiko in week 2 later today.
