I have been a lurker on this site for a few years, but this is my first post. I am currently in my 4th week of my first sheiko cycle (#29). I am loving it so far and I feel like my 1rm’s will much better after i test at the end of the cycle.
I am wondering about the best way to test maxes. Should i take a whole week off first? or just 5 days? should i test squat, bench, deads all on the same day? After the week off should i start another sheiko cycle or different training plan? #29 again or which cycle next?
For those who are interested my maxes at the start of this program:
Squat: High-bar, narrow stance, ass-to-grass=315 lbs.
Dead: Standard stance (not sumo, whatever its called)=355 lbs.
Bench: paused, full range, elbows semi tucked=245 lbs.
Bodyweight= 171 Lbs.
