No problem. I have a copy of each of the excel files in the forum for back-up. Happened in the MSIC cycle I posted too.

Can anyone confirm that you can download Roberts Mod from the link?

The updated link is working. Thank you

The only comment I might add is that because it is self-reported, a subjective variable like that of how long it takes to peak is probably not going to correlate well with any of the objective variables of weight, total, wilks etc.

Very true. I thought that there might at least be a visible weak relationship that might be a good starting point. Then refinements could be made once it looked like there was something to pursue. But as it is, nothing.

Not sure how detailed of training logs people keep but a handle of people's wilks or rpe's on the skills test day prior to the comp cycle to compare with the wilks at the meet might shed some light.
What information I mean would look like :

Skills test : B/w , squat , bench, deadlift, (RPE's of each ?(optional)) <--usually done 100% for 1 rep 1-2 sets
Meet/test after peak : B/W , squat, bench, deadlift, listing all 3 attempts (RPE's of each ?(optional))
Peaking protocol: Default, other (specify)

The obvious (or ideal case) after a peak is to exceed you Wilks from the skills test day. "Did this happen?" is an interesting angle to look from and most lifter who keep logs should have this information at hand. Listing the attempts on the meet day and RPE's should help eliminate variables such as judging, technical errors in the lift etc.

I do realise this doesn't shed  direct light on how long it takes a particular population to peak BUT since the default peaking protocol is what most people use it should be apparent if it is generally applicable or not.

Thank you Robert, and of course Boris himself, for initiating the survey and compiling the results. The different peaking strategies here will no doubt be of great use to many.

The only comment I might add is that because it is self-reported, a subjective variable like that of how long it takes to peak is probably not going to correlate well with any of the objective variables of weight, total, wilks etc. Usually people follow as written whatever training program they have and that is that.

In a follow up survey in the future a more probing question like "How many cycles of Sheiko have you run" or "How many years of training/competing" would able you to disregard some of the data for less experienced lifters who are likely not to know what a peak feels like or how long it takes them.

It is a complicated subject though, with many variables apart from training to affect how well or how long a peak takes.

Thank you again for the work.

It took me a while to learn to pulls from a box but since then I can pull ~110% of my 1RM from a box with the bar 7-10cm below the knee.

Tightness in the setup is the main factor I find in trying to explain it to others, it's not a pull from the floor so you won't be relying on any type of leg drive it's going to be mostly hips, this is especially true for a sumo puller.

 In conventional nearly always at that height the shins will (should ?) be vertical or very nearly so,  if you try to start with knees slightly forward you will tend to lose the bar forward and make it harder. Imagine trying to first levitate the bar from the box through tightness in your setup and then finish the pull

Spoto Press is when you do not touch the chest but pause above it instead and then press. It's like doing a board press except there is no board!

Thanks Bench Polkov  :)

Hello all,

I am currently on week 4 of Prep 2 in the 20 week, 4 day program. The full cycle is aimed at peaking for a major meet in August but I have a minor meet a the end of this block (after week 6 Prep 2) where I will only be aiming to express 90-95% of my true total.

I will complete weeks 4 and 5 as written but the question is: For week 6 can I just cut out days 3&4, drop all accessories and reduce the volume slightly on days 1 & 2 to achieve my goal or should I use the final week from the Competition block as a template for that week?

I know that in the long run with the aims I have it probably won't matter either way but I would still like to hear opinions.

Thank you

Just a quick question on the Height-weight ratio chart listed.

I realize that this serves as a long term goal, but can I assume that this is for "natural" athletes?


Yes, natural.

Check out this calculator:
http://www.weightrainer.net/bodypred.html

The heights-weights shouldn't be too far off. I plugged in 13% fat and mine was right on.


Thanks Robert, that's what I thought .

Is it possible that your bodyweight is 75kg? In that case that would mean just do ab work and BW is the default option.

I export pages 12-14  i.e the 3 cycles as a pdf file to my phone using Dropbox sync and use Adobe to open it.
Only have to do it once in 12-20 weeks!

*Body weight before      79 Kg

*Maxes before             Best comp lifts:  155/102.5/205 <- not all same competition.  best total in comp 442.5kg
                                                 
*Program - over/under 80kg           Over

*Did you modify it? yes/no               Yes, I used inflated maxes ~5-10% and ran Prep1/Prep2/Prep1/Prep2/Comp for 20 week cycle. Aslo, dropped out all goodmornings in favor of back extensions with bands and glute-ham raises also with bands

*Body weight after        79kg

*Maxes after                 Skills test week, no comp yet:   170/105/230 Total 505kg
                                    ***Update****:: Competition results Full Power: 170/105/225 Total 500@80
                                   Attempts taken: Squat  150/160/170 <- 3rd was easy ~2.5-5kg left
                                                            Bench 100/105/110
                                                            Deadlift 210/225/240 <- Too optimistic. 232.5-235 would have been achievable I just wanted 3xBW
*Any other thoughts/feedback                Excellent program, I will be using this for the foreseeable future

I just transitioned from conventional to sumo. I started to add in sumo as half of the warm up sets in the conventional pulls i.e. for first 4 warm up sets 2 are done conv and 2 sumo

I progressed this week to week until half the top working sets were sumo and half conventional, then proceeded to taper off the conventional the same way I tapered onto sumo.

It seems to have worked well as I was still able to handle the higher % and over all volume while learning the movement pattern for sumo.

It took me ~8 weeks to make the complete transition.

I am not saying this is optimal but is just another way to do it

I have done the last 8 weeks with inflated maxes without any problems. I just wanted to see how common/ wise it is to do it.

I doubt my weights are large enough to cause too much trouble. Actual comp maxes : 155/102.5/205. Inflated maxes used for the cycle : 165/110/220   < 80kg bw so ~5% increase for each lift.

The only adjustment  I will make is the testing on week 1 of the Comp Prep phase. I obviously will use my actual maxes for this!

I think it was a post I saw of yours Polkov saying you had an inflated bench max,  now I think of it.

Thank you for your answers, guys.
