Training log
« on: April 20, 2018, 12:53:05 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'll be competing in 9 weeks, this is the log of the training leading up to that. I compete classic, IPF in the -93kg weight class and will be running a bastardised version of intermediate large load. This will be the first time I run a Sheiko program in its entirety so I'm very excited! (I've run about 12 weeks of Sheiko programming before, but never an entire cycle because I had a competition half way.)

Age: 19 (I've been training for 3 years)
Height: 177cm
Weight: 91kg
Best competition lifts: 135/105/185
Best gym lifts: 150/110/190

Week 3, day 3

Bench press:
55x5x1
66x4x1
80x3x2
90x2x2 video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uINmnS7tT8Y

I supersetted this with 3x5 chin ups. I started losing a little upper back tightness. I will make my back stronger and pause longer to correct this.

Squat:
75x5x1
90x5x1 video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5eh1vyfUfw
105x5x2
113x4x5 video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agD8fThWVHA

I supersetted this with 24x10x5 dumbbell rows. The cue "don't let your knees drift back" helped reducing my goodmorninging the weight up. It's still there and I need to squat higher, but the latter can wait until after the competition.

Bench:
55x6x1
66x6x2
72x6x4

I supersetted this with 3x3, 2, 1 chin ups. The plan was 3x5 but that was too hard.

Incline bench:
52x10x5

Static holds:
100x15s for 2 sets, double overhand
140x15s for 1 set, hook grip

Back extension w/ barbell:
60x5x3

I wanted to do 5x5, but I hurt my left glute.

Notes:

It was very hot, this made me tired and I had to take a little extra rest between sets. It didn't affect my technique.

Week 4, day 1

Squat:
75x5
90x4
105x3x2
120x3x2
127,5x2x3

I supersetted these with 3x5 chin ups. My lower back got very fatigued.

Bench press:
55x5x1
65x4x1
77,5x3x2
90x3x5

Squat:
75x5x1

I supersetted these with 3x5 chin ups. My lower back didn't get fatigued here.

Back extensions:
55x5x5

My left glute didn't hurt anymore, it was probably just a minor strain.

Incline dumbbell press:
18x10x5

I never did these before, felt awkward.

Week 4, day 2

Bench press:
55x5x1
66x4x1

On my last set, first rep, the bar started moving to the side. I filmed that set (the front view), but no idea why that happened. It also looks like my lower back is slightly rounded before I start my pull. It doesn't feel rounded, which is weird. On the off chance that someone is reading this, any idea on if my back is actually rounded and why the bar moved to the side?

Bench press:
60x5x1
72x5x1
83x4x4

Close grip bench press:
60x10x5

Barbell row:
50x10x5

Leg extension:
110x10x5

Week 6, day 1

Squat:
75x5x1
90x4x2
105x3x2
120x2x2
135x1x3

I supersetted this with 3x5 chin ups. My second rep with 135 was a bit sloppy, but the squats moved well overall.

Bench press:
55x5x1
65x4x1
77,5x3x1
87,5x3x5

I had some mild elbow irritation.

105x3x2
120x2x4

Notitions:
I was supposed to do some posterior chain assistance, but I was very tired from the squatting volume and skipped it. I need to be careful not to develop elbow tendonitis.

83x3x1
88x2x2
94x1x2
83x3x1
72x5x1

115x4x1

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

Week 6, day 3

Squat:
75x5x1
90x4x1
105x3x1
120x3x2
128x2x3
120x3x2

Supersetted with 3x5 chin ups.

Bench press:
55x4x1
66x3x1
77x3x4

Incline dumbbell press:
20x10x5

Wide grip deadlift deadlift:
120x5x5

Supersetted with 3x3 chin ups.

Notes:
This was a far easier workout than I usually do, and it felt good, allowed me to recover and my elbows didn't bother me anymore.


Week 7, day 1

Bench press:
55x5x1
65x4x1
77,5x3x1
87,5x2x4

Squat:
75x5x1
90x5x1
105x3x1
105x7x1
105x4x1

Had to cut my squats short here, because the tendon in my right knee started hurting. Especially the set of 7 was hard because I descend slowly and consequently hold my breath for 5 seconds each reps.

Chin ups:
3x5

I didn't let my shoulders go up at the bottom of the chin up and that made them much easier. It's probably a good idea to continue this and up the volume.

Back extensions:
25x10x5

Leg extension:
115x10x5

Bench press:
60x4x1
72,5x4x1
82,5x4x3

Notes:
Forgot to do my upper body assistance and hurt my knee, so not a great workout.

Squat:
75x5x1
90x4x1
105x3x1
120x3x4

Supersetted with 3x5 chin ups. The last set of squats felt slow, otherwise moved really well. I descend a little faster the last 30% of the movement and it helps with the bounce.

Bench press:
55x5x1
66x4x1
77x3x1
88x2x4

Supersetted with 3x5 chin ups. Nothing special here, still hard to control the weight during the pause.

Incline bench press
50x10x5

Wide grip deadlift:
120x5x5

Holds:
100x15sx2 overhand grip
120x15sx1 hook grip

Squat:
75x5x1
90x4x1
105x3x1
120x3x5

Supersetted with 3x5 chin ups. It was very hot, so I was panting like a dog the entire time and needed 3+ minutes rest in between sets. Technique was ok.

Bench press:
55x5x1
65x4x1
77,5x3x1
87,5x2x4

Wide grip deadlift:
120x5x5

Felt really easy. I also moved out my grip and hit myself in the balls with the bar. 1/10 would not recommend.

Incline bench press:
50x10x5

I went to another gym, and they only had 45 degrees incline benches instead of the 75 degree I normally do. I also had my pinkies on the olympic rings instead of the powerlifting rings which I didn't notice until I was done. It did give a good chest pump.

Chin ups:
3x5

Notes:
Nothing special, it was pretty easy and I feel healthy and ready for the skill test next week.
