Is over 80kg program right for me?
« on: August 05, 2018, 01:47:35 AM »

I'm brand new to this forum and have been doing lots of research on Sheiko programs. I'm considering running the 3 days/week over 80kg program, but wanted anyone's opinion on whether or not this is the right way to go. I see there's so many Sheiko programs out there that I want to make sure I'm getting into the right one.

Quick background, been lifting for 10 years or so, 31 year old male, 129kg bodyweight. My lifts are Squat 300kg/661lbs, Bench 165kg/365lbs (lots of room to grow here), Deadlift 320kg/705lbs.

Would your advice be to run the over 80kg program?

Thank you in advance for any help.

You are in the high MS with those weights so i would highly recommand to use the 4 day program instead.

I personally found the advanced large load a very effective program as a building block to go from 650 to 766 total (IPF ruleset), and altered versions of the MSIC prep/comp for both offseason and actual competition to get training totals of 800+ before a stupid injury

The 3 day program has too little volume for you. I'd say the adaptation of the 4 days normal load or 4 days large load and see how that feels. if good continue. if too much, either run it again and see if better or switch to 3 days.
