PIA's Powerlifting Journey

Recommended Posts

P.I.A    335

For my first real thread, I thought I would provide a detailed look into my goal to compete in a powerlifting competition. I haven't decided what meet I will be competing at. But for right now I will be just documenting and tracking my progress from the beginning until I compete later next year when I return home from good ol' Afghanistan. A little about me, male. 5' 8" 185 lbs or about 85 kg. My goal is to compete in the 181 class. 

*exclaimer*  I don't really mind if anyone reads this thread or not as it is mainly a way to keep accountable and track my progress. 

 

I will post my daily training following a 3 day weekly split (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and /or saturday depending on how my friday goes. 

Feel free to comment! I love the sport and can't wait to compete! 

 

 

 

WOOOOO raise this junk from the dead. No apologies here. Life got in the way! 

 

new updates! 

BW: 201 screw the 181 class!!!!!

I am currently training on the Sheiko 29 program. Its considered a beginner program form the Sheiko series but its one hell of a challenge. The training volume on the program is insane and definately not for the inexpierenced. I have lifted and trained ever since my freshman year of highschool but have decided to get serious about training for a competition just about a month ago. I am just starting week 4 of the first month (kind of an awkward place to start keeping track). 

 

Mondays training: 

 

1 day (Monday)

 

1.Squat 50% 5Х1,60% 4Х1,70% 3Х2,80% 3Х2, 85% 2Х3.(27)

2.Bench press 50% 5Х1,60% 4Х1,70% 3Х2,80% 3Х5.(30)

3.Flat dumbbells “flies”10Х5.

4.Dips 8Х5.

5.Squat 50% 5Х1,60% 4Х1,70% 3Х2,80% 2Х4.(23)

6.”Good mornings” (standing) 5Х5.

7. Pedlay Rows 8x4

Total: 80 lifts

For those confused, this was just recently translated from the original russian. 8x4 doesn't mean 8 sets of 4, it means 4 sets of 8.

Making sure I'm reading it right - you're doing squats twice for a total of 50 reps?

Interesting take, I guess.

I've never heard of this program but I will definitely check it out.
