You should not peak after only 5 weeks of training.

The sheiko app tells me to do a single with 100% and with 104% in week 2 of the 3 day small load preparation 2. Small load preparation 1 lasts 4 weeks so the peak is after 5 weeks of training. Maybe there is a misunderstanding here?  :-\

The other templates don't have this early peak in the preparation.

It could be due to the program thinking you are new to powerlifting and as such you get fast progress and could be worth testing earlier. The reason why they wouldn't have it that early is that would be advanced. Anyway, you shouldn't be afraid of that.

The app. programs are pretty well thought through, so I don't think it a mistake.

Yeah that might be the reason. Thank you  :)

So I think I will just pick up one of the routines and do adjustments or change the routine after I went through a full cycle. I think I will check if I'm able to go 4 times a week with one of those advanced 4 days routines since almost everyone recommends it.

Multiple times I read that people talking about the programm that the app recommended for them. Is this feature only for the iOS app?

I'll let Robert answer that, as it is an app-technical question.

>>Also this could be a good place to ask: is each volume calculated taking ALL SETS/REPS on the cycle? would I have less preparation if I don't do all warming up sets?  ???

Lets take squats. Then for each week the number of reps and volume are calculated and one can aggregate that into monthly length or length of the (prep./comp.) cycle. Since Sheiko starts programs at 50% (given comp. squat) everything that is below that is not counted. You should still do a thorough warm-up and proper series until 50%. Search forum for "warm up" if you want to know more about this.

Please be aware that Boris likes to write variations of a given exercise and adjust percentages according to the comp. lift.
