I finished up the 4 week #29 Sheiko program on Friday and then tested my maxes this week. My results were:
5 lb PR on Bench @ 275
30 lb PR on Squat @ 365
25 lb PR on Dead @ 425
I’m pretty damn happy with that and I’m going to start the program again on Monday with the new numbers. Only difference is rather then doing 5x5 flies I’m going to alternate between flies and incline bench.
I ran it once and got 20 on bench, 25 squat, and 30 deadlift
I also gained like 10 pounds heh.
I’m guessing running this type of program for a long time is going to require a lot of weight gain, and be greatly facilitated by anabolics
Ran the sheiko cycle, first 4 weeks only, over and over again for a year now w/ a 1 week break in between cycles.
No steroids needed. I gained about 15 lbs, but I was actually trying to gain weight. I put 110 lbs on my squat in less equipment, moved my bench up 40 lbs and actually hit a PR on deadlift after being stuck for years.
hey, I had good results on the program and put on good muscle and a ton of strength. It was a good shock to my system. And obviously most programs are going to be facilitated by steroids especially when recovery is a major issue, that doesn’t make them necessary, was just an observation.
I wasn’t aware that many people were maintaining weight and that is pretty surprising and interesting to me
Not sure why you think that was meant as a negative comment, but it wasn’t. Not hating at all! I will possibly start running it again next year.
