Hey man, I’d love to help and i love sheiko.
what’s your warm up like? what are you doing to fix the problem right now?
What you need to do is take 2 weeks and take the percents down by 10 on squats and dead lifts, I know that’s the last thing you want to hear, but think about it this way: taking 2 weeks off now will most likely make you stronger 1 year from now… training through and getting injured will keep you at this level or regress you 1 year from now. If you think you’re advanced, you’re not, neither am I, neither is anyone else reading this… and that’s ok. Easy things still work, and will work for a long time.
I’ll give you a nice concrete example of what i’m talking about. My good friend Kade Weber started the sheiko programs at 15 years old, and basically did whatever his coach Willie Albert did. That was it, he just went in and did what Willie did, he just enjoyed the process.
Here’s Kade when we trained together and were around the same strength, i believe he’s 17-18 here.
I can distinctly remember this workout, Kades shoulder was bothering him after that so he took 2 weeks off to let it heal. I can remember having 2-4 things that were just killing me at the time, and thinking he was kind of soft. Kade didn’t train, because Kade didn’t enjoy training when it hurt, he enjoyed it when it was fun. In his own words, “If I liked chess, I’d play chess… but I like lifting weights, so that’s what I do.”
I needed to be strong, I’d do whatever it took to be strong, it didn’t matter to me. It got to the point where I hated training, but couldn’t stop for the guilt. Long story short, this is kade now at 23:
enjoy lifting man[/quote]
I lift at Idolmaker which is a warehouse gym close to 2300 square feet. My warm ups depend on the weather: on non-rainy days I’ll warm up with the sled for five minutes followed by DeFranco’s Agile 8. If its raining I’ll use the battle ropes combined with some dynamic movements and then onto Agile 8. I do this within a 10-12 minute span.
I’m still confused as to the “deload” and percentage decrease you’re suggesting.
