PIA's Powerlifting Journey

159 posts in this topic

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.

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
