CMS, MS, & MSIC (4-day programs) / Need help with modifying program
« on: April 02, 2016, 04:16:05 AM »
I have run sheiko programming several times, but I moved on to Bulgarian Programming, and am now looking to get back to sheiko. I have several issues.

1) When I was deadlift as frequently as sheiko plans, I ran into injuries twice from block pulls specifically. For whatever reason, when I would do block pulls, I would injure my hamstring where it inserts under the glute. I figure it is as simple as not doing block pulls anymore.

2) My squat is still my best lift, but I have a glaring weakness out of the bottom. I have a snappy squat, getting good pop out of the bottom, but I'm most weak out of the hole for the first few inches. What exercise should I be sure to include to fix this?

3) As much as I want to be strong for my size, I also think at 5' 8.5" and a lean 180lbs, I think I'm somewhat undersized. I know Robert posted about a mass program he made, but is there a better approach for me to get bigger?  By that I mean should I implement more bodybuilding type work?

Universal Topics / Sheiko and Strongman?
« on: July 12, 2015, 09:41:44 PM »
Hello everyone, I want to add some extra dimension to my Powerlifting programming. I have dabbled in Strongman before, but nothing major. I would like to know what would be the "best" way of implementing strongman training while running Sheiko CMS 4 day? I'm also currently trying to slowly gain some muscle mass to fill out the 83kg class, as I am only 78.4kg right now. Thank you.

CMS, MS, & MSIC (4-day programs) / Lower Squat Volume vs 3 Day?
« on: March 24, 2015, 06:47:29 PM »
Hello everyone, I have noticed that the 4 Day cycle seems to have lower squat volume than the 3 day program (U80kg). I am a bit worried it will negatively affect my squat progress. Does anyone think that adding an extra rep/set on the 2x4 at 80% days is a bad idea? Also, to make it a 16 week cycle, I cut out the first block entirely. Bad idea? Thank you.
