TimLPL Gettin to 1500
Well I have gone ahead and started a log that I can continue to post in for a long time.
I am coming off of 11+ weeks of Sheiko training where I did Sheiko 37 and Sheiko 31. I was impressed with the Sheiko but it is definitely hard on the joints after a while. The volume is huge but the results are great! Workouts take long, sometimes close to 2 hours. I was able to add a total of 80lbs to my 3 lift total.
I am going to be doing a 14 week peaking routine that I found. Fairly simple. I will cycle through different types of work: assistance, gpp, cns, mobility, and hypertrophy. I will be working 3-4 days a week with one day rest between the big three and possibly a 4th day after the 3rd lift of the week. Workouts shouldnt be long, hopefully no more than 1 hour.
Diet is same as usual. Never very strict. I am in Afghanistan so its not easy to be strict nor do I see the sense since I am powerlifting. I stay fairly lean at around 12-13% body fat. My body weight is somewhere around 197-200lbs right now. I dont monitor my body fat very much. I just base the % on what my body looks like.
I will be doing some partial movements during the workout and I will be using straps and a belt at times. I just ordered wrist wraps, knee wraps, super heavy lifting straps and a slingshot.
The layout for the main lifts is as follows. (Ed Coan 14 wk Peak Cycle)
Each line is 1 wk. and will be basis for each of the 3 lifts. If all works out as planned my final lifts would be as follows
Squat - 465
Bench - 350
Deadlift - 525
Total - 1340
Squat - 521
Bench - 392
Deadlift - 588
Total - 1501
This would put me right at my goal of 1500. I plan on attacking this hard. I need to work on my shoulder strength as I lack in this department. My ultimate year end goals are:
Squat - 525
Bench - 400
Deadlift - 600
Total - 1525
All my lifts will be RAW. I havent gotten into the gear yet. Maybe once I get back to the states I will try. Of course I dont know if I will have time once I get back. Well here is the latest. I am currently at Week 2 Day 6.
