Training / When to Switch?
« on: May 31, 2018, 08:37:27 PM »
I have been using a mixture of the greyskull LP and stronglifts 5x5 but learned of Sheiko about a month ago and I have been wrapping up my training cycle to begin there.

My question is, when is it okay for a novice lifter to switch to sheiko? I would say I might be entering the intermediate territory but absolutely nowhere close to advanced and I want to make sure I pick the correct program that my body can actually handle.

I know Sheiko has some "lighter" programs, which ones should I be taking a look at primarily for my scenario? My friend also referred me to several "undulating" program but I'm not sure what exactly he means. He referred to it as "DUP".

Thanks in advance!

What do you feel helped your bench the most out of this? I am considering doing a bench-only program soon to focus on bench as it's lagging so hard behind my other lifts.

Competed at the USAPL collegiate nationals in 2016 and was a great time. Hoping to go to the open nats next year.

Love the thought that you're putting into the programming for a specific sport. Lots to learn from this for sure.

hope to be anywhere close to this at your age. Killing it!

tough to back off when you're prepping for a meet but smart thing to do for sure. Shows maturity in a lifter.

I would think it would start to go away after enough time of squatting. However it could be your form is not quite optimal for your unique body and limb structures/lengths. I would focus on mobility and making sure your form is on point as the first step.

I think it's not cut and dry and depends like DOMS pointed out. I have seen people like Eliot Hulse talk about how it is more appropriate for athletes given the emphasis on thoracic extension and unique positioning. In the case of powerlifters i still think it has some place--Dan Green is very big on them and clearly knows a thing or two. I personally try to add them in after back squats for additional volume when I can stomach it.

I've surveyed a few thousand people asking about this and that. With all else constant between people, those that said they consume alcohol totaled about 25kg less on average than those who did not consume alcohol.

Wow that is a great metric. Would you happen to have the study/writeup of this?

In terms of specificity I don't think you will be able to maintain the same strength but it doesn't sound like that's your goal here. Switching it up like this is a great idea and from my personal experience i've found this is the main thing that keeps injuries away--not getting too greedy with one specific program, loading, lift, etc.

getting it checked out asap by a doctor should be your main priority. hoping it's something minor for you!
