You train @ Idolmakers in Miami, you have Eric Talmant, a world authority on Sheiko, yet you ask for advice on it here?
Eric will punch you in the neck if you talk about using box squats.
Sheiko is meant to be used in competition form, you walk out your squats, you sink them, you pause your benches. ect[/quote]
Yes I know Eric trains there and I’ve spoken, or rather texted him about Sheiko and supposedly he has his own version which he has yet to send to me. Box Squats are included in Sheiko’s book for the squat as SPP so I don’t think Boris would have listed them there if he didn’t feel they were useful.
If you look through Eric’s old EFS log you’ll see he does variations on some of his lifts like chain benches and lockouts and for the record he’s not doing Sheiko anymore.[/quote]
I never post or even visit this site that much…but I’m making an exception for you.
Aright buddy let me end this right now and help you out because I think you have the best intentions but you are missing the mark. So dont take this as a flaming or that Im insulting you.
I train with Eric, as a matter of fact I was the FIRST idolmaker to start training with Eric…Ive been training at idolmaker for 3 years. Ask about Andy. You wanna know how sheiko works? Eric, myself and our entire powerlifting team will help you. I ran it for 3 cycles/ 6 months and put about 200lbs on my total by just doing the main lifts. No crazy accessory, no box squats or w/e…just main lifts with some GPP to improve my conditioning. As a matter of fact Eric has a DVD on Sheiko…buy it!
We are currently experimenting with something new. Want to know more? Come train with us. It is not a modified Sheiko… You misunderstood his text. When we run Sheiko, we run pure sheiko. If you wanna get stronger stop making excuses and train with us, we are more then happy to help you progress in the sport. HECK idolmaker is a Westside certified gym, Im sure Randy will be MORE then happy to help you and train you using the Westside philosophy. He is very knowledgeable and has helped many athletes, bodybuilders, and figure athletes reach their goals. You have many options given the gym you go to
I hear you have a training log. Im gonna take a look at it see whats up with your training.
