General Training Overview - Daily Loading Part 2
« on: April 28, 2014, 03:17:02 PM »
Increasing the number of training days to four times a week is a big step forward in the direction of increased loads. A greater variation of loading can be planned with four workouts per week.

An example distribution of monthly load in microcycles with four workouts per week can be seen as follows (see Table 7).

Options with a sharp change in number of lifts from workout to workout are called “intermittent stressors”; options with a gradual increase or decrease of volume during three workouts or more are called “gradual stressors”.

Table  7
Options (1-4):  Preparatory Period Load Variants For 4 Workouts Per Microcycle

1st Option         2nd Option         3rd Option         4th Option         
Monday Medium Large LargeMedium
Tuesday RestRestRestRest
Wednesday   LargeMediumSmall Small
Thursday RestRestRestRest
Friday MediumLargeLargeLarge
Saturday Small Small Small Small
Sunday RestRestRestRest

See Fig. 5 Diagram of methods of distributing the load in microcycles with 4 workouts per week

In embodiments 1-4 the maximum load is scheduled in the second: two large loads with one medium and small training day (see Figure 5 and Table 7).                                                                                                 

Table  8
Options (5-8):  Preparatory Period Load Variants For 4 Workouts Per Microcycle

5th Option          6th Option          7th Option          8th Option         
Monday Medium MediumLarge Large
Tuesday RestRestRestRest
Wednesday    SmallMediumSmall Large
Thursday RestRestRestRest
Friday MediumSmallSmallSmall
Saturday Small Large Medium Medium
Sunday RestRestRestRest

In cases 5-8 the maximum load is planned in version 8: two large workouts followed by small and medium training days (Table 8 and Figure 6).

See Fig. 6 Diagram of ways (5-8) of distributing the load of microcycles with 4 workouts per week

Table 9
Loading Variance For 4 Workouts Per Microcycle During the Competition Period
 
6 Weeks         5 Weeks         4 Weeks         3 Weeks         2 Weeks         1 Week         
Monday LargeLargeMediumTestMediumSmall
Tuesday Rest Rest Rest Rest Rest Rest
Wednesday LargeSmallLargeMediumSmallSmall
Thursday Rest Rest Rest Rest Rest Rest
Friday SmallMediumMediumMediumMedium Rest
Saturday MediumSmallSmallSmallRest Comp.
Sunday Rest Rest Rest Rest Rest Comp.
*weeks countdown starts from the beginning of the competition

See Fig. 7 Method of distributing the load during the competition mesocycle

Just as in the planning with three workouts per week, a test in the competition exercises is scheduled for the 12th workout (3 weeks) preceding the event. During the second week prior to the event the scheduled training sessions reduces to 3 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), with Saturday being a rest day. If an athlete competes on Friday, Boris recommends that one small workout, that is more like a warm-up, should take place on Tuesday with Wednesday and Thursday being rest days. If the athlete performs on Saturday, then the athlete trains on Monday with a small load and even less load on Wednesday with Thursday and Friday being rest days. If the athlete performs on Sunday (i.e. heavyweights), he also trains on Monday, Wednesday and has 3 days of rest.

I know there are (older) five-day templates from the old snow leopard club era. It would be interesting to see some examples on how that'd fan out as far as the daily loading goes.

I hope it´s ok for me to post this. It's from the Online Translation of Sheikos Powerlifting Book:

Day                  1. Week   2. Week        3. Week   4. Week
Monday            Large       Medium            Large       Large
Tuesday            Small       Large            Small       Small
Wednesday    Medium       Large            Large       Medium
Friday                Large       Medium            Large       Medium
Saturday              Small       Small            Small       Small

This was an Example for training pattern of 5 or even 8 times each week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday mostly 2 Training sessions if training 8 Times each Week.

See my post in the CMS/MS/MSIC section with the Fedorenko cycle.

I think you should be fine to post it from what I've been told. Share more!

Second table:
                        5 option   6 option   7 option   8 option
1st workout   heavy   light            heavy   medium
2nd workout   light          heavy   medium   heavy
3rd workout   heavy   light            heavy   medium
4th workout   medium   heavy    light           light
5th workout   light            light            medium   medium

Competition mesocycle:

                        week 4          week 3           week 2       week 1
1st workout     heavy         medium           medium           light
2nd workout   light               light                    rest                    rest
3rd workout   medium         heavy                 light               light
4th workout   medium         medium           medium           rest
5th workout   light                 light                   rest                   meet

I kept the heavy/medium/light terms, because that's what I use in my notes.
That's all for now from the book, as I think it's "unfair" to post more, unless Mr Sheiko does.

I hope it is translated well.  I bet every little improvement in the english would mean a lot more copies sold.

The hold up is the contract with the publisher of the currents works, which states that they have exclusive rights. There may be wiggle room though with some fine legal maneuvering.

Yeah, I think there is a pretty significant market for this kind of work in the English language.

I mean where do powerlifters in the English speaking world (who don't have the guidance of a coach!) turn for information? Starting Strength? T-Nation? E-books from the likes of Wendlers, Lilliebridges, Carrolls, Lilys? Dear god...

In my opinion, for the most part the guys who find a good home to train in do fine.  They learn from each other and help each other.  The guys who train by themselves rely on all of these e-books (not to say anything about their quality, haven't read any of them) and youtube celebrities for their knowledge.

I agree. Boris also likes the group method. That's what the forum is for, to bring people together so we can help each other get ridiculously strong. We tossed around the idea of implementing his group method for beginners in that section with different age groups and virtual online "technique" meets. But many people have the idea that Sheiko style training is only for advanced lifters.

I've been trying to destroy that myth for ages but there's so many years of disinformation out there already.
