Been working out for powerlifting for almost 2 months using a rough 5x5 routine, and just finished my first de-load. I’ve been hearing good things about Sheiko #29 for beginners. I’m thinking of competing for the first time (yeah, I know I’ll get schooled, but it’ll be fun!) in a meet on Dec 1, about 7 weeks away. I figure if I start Sheiko next week, that will give me a week to test 1RM, then a de-load week before the meet. Do you think it’ll be a good fit for me?
If it helps, here are my stats:
-22 y.o. male, 170-175lbs, guesstimated 10% BF, 5’8", training 4 days per week
-Primary goals: Gain strength (obviously!), improve Big 3
-Short-term goal: Gain weight
Best lifts (no straps, wraps, or belt… yet):
