What happened to the old 'scissors'?
« on: January 03, 2019, 09:40:16 PM »
I remember doing sheiko years back from those dubiously translated numbered programs when they popped up on the internet.

They used to have 'squats - scissors', which everybody and myself assumed to be lunges.

However, I've gone and bought the app and ive noticed none of his new programs contain lunges, only really leg presses as supplementary.

So why no 'scissors'? I don't really miss the scissors, just wondering what happened.

I am thinking that exercise served a specific purpose for a certain athlete. It is in his new e-book (http://sheiko-program.ru/forum/index.php?topic=1811.msg9190#new) So I guess it is not in the app for a specific reason. Perhaps people cannot do it properly. It is harder to fuck up a leg press.

Interesting.

I assume it would be OK to sub out every second leg press session for some lunges?

As much as I dislike them, I feel like I need just a little bit of uniilateral work.

I can't see the problem in you doing so. You are just adhering to his advice of customizing the program to your needs, which you should always do  ;)
