Learning Experience

Overall an awful session. I have determined This type of intensity block isnt right for me. I think the middle day was too heavy and that coupled with the fatigue from the initial skills evaluation made today bad. I also try to beat all my numbers from the first skills evaluation but that wasnt the smartest idea. Next time I will either have one skills evaluation and more light days or that middle day will be much lighter. I will probably try the former and see how it feels. I am also going to add in some singles at 90% somewhere in the volume block. ok here it is.

Squat
455x1
495x1
515x1- depth looked right were it needed to be but is questionable.

Bench
315x1
355x1
385x0-just felt off got it off my chest but had nothing after that

Deadlift
495x1
555x0- think i jumped up too much. Wanted to beat mondays number but just wasnt happening. Off the floor felt strong but fizzled out above my knees and couldnt get my shoulders back.

Back to volume Either sunday or tuesday depending on how I feel.

Are you running any certain sheiko program or is it just sheiko esk

im not actually running sheiko at the moment, I am running 5x5 advanced. I just want to feel it out but I may switch back to sheiko new week. When I do run sheiko I have been running cms/ms. If I go back I might drop the second deadlift day but im not sure yet. I go by feel alot and add weight here and do rep outs and such based on how a session is going.

What’s up dude? I’m in! Didn’t know you were planning on moving up a class until I read it here.

im good man just trying to get strong lol trying to build up to a solid 198. Im going to try to hit atleast a top three total from raw nationals in october

Where do you train in Florida? I’m headed down to FAU in a week for the upcoming fall semester.

It’s weird how many of the top 198s didn’t show up. Scolaro would have ran away with it. Even Anthony Parella would have had a shot at repeating. I thought Ian Bell was going to be much higher in total.

agreed man I expected the winning total to be alot higher and I expected Bell to total well above 1600. His raw squat and dead werent as high as I expected.

Solid. That’s about 40min away from where I’ll be located. If you ever want to meet up and train, shoot me a pm. It’s tough finding people with the powerlifting mindset. I plan on competing too one day. Im just currently grinding away though.
