Sheiko Question, Reset 1RM?


#1

I found this 13 week program on Tnation. My question... Do you reset your 1RM throughout the cycle or stick with your starting 1RM established pre-week 1?

Also, if there are better training guides you have used (Sheiko), I'm interested.

Thanks in advance.

There are plenty of calculators out there.

I also have a thread about new sheiko programs that are available on his website.

My understanding of sheiko is that you set your TM monthly.

You can do 3 in a row with the same TM, or you can do a month and retest.

From what I can tell, you never change your TM until you have completed an entire block of training. (1 month intervals)
