Same! I just stretch my hip flexors, hamstrings and piriformis with 30 sec holds before I go to bed. I SMR (self myofascial release) everything else.

sit down, place a dumbbell in between your thighs, and raise you calfs in that position.

Doing it on a smith machine is also good because it locks the movement into position.
Yea it has a leg press so thats the only calf exercise I do.

Will try dumbbell calf raises
Thanks

This week mark the beginning of Sheiko Week 3 for me. Here is my little review of the program:

I will start with Cons:

It is a very 3 dimensional program in a way as you just focus only on bench, squat and pull. Squat days are intense, but Smolov gave you a better feel of accomplishment as you increase the working weight every week. Sheiko on the other hand just keeps it at the same weight (or % of your max) for the duration of the program. Bench press intensity is lacking. I get through bench press with only 30 sec rest in between sets. Deadlift - again, you never get to push yourself as the weight always remains the same.

Now for Pros:

I started adjusting my 1 rms to increase the intensity and it became more fun. So basically during week 1, I made my calculations based on 95% of my 1 rm for all the lifts, for week 2 I used 100% and now I'm going for about 105%. What I am saying is for anyone thinking about doing this program, do not be afraid to experiment with your percentages. The major Pro for me was the addition of assistance exercises. Just like with Smolov, if the day was very lower body intensive, I do not do anything that would put extra stress on my spine. If it was bench focused, I do a lot of pulling exercises.

To be honest, I don't think I will continue with Sheiko after I'm done Week 4. I want to make my own routine that will be something like:

Monday - squat/bench
Tuesday - Ed Coans deadlift routine
Friday - squat variation/bench or push variation...

Another word of advice for anyone thinking of doing Sheiko, invest in a foam roller and a lacrosse/tennis ball! They have been instrumental in my recovery, even more so than stretching.

I'll report back after Week 5 as this is when I get to test for my PRs and see if there were any results from Sheiko...
My knowledge of Sheiko is still limited, but from what I understand Sheiko has many individual subprograms that were designed to be run in succession. You are doing 37 right? I think that is one of the earlier programs (after 29) and wasn't designed to be extremely challenging like Smolov. The earlier programs were meant to get you used to the increased volume. As you progress through the individual programs, they will become more challenging and that is when you will get into peak shape and start smashing PR's.

What I'm trying to say is, don't give up on Sheiko too soon!

5/3/1 is as good as any program out there. Just gets boring eventually. But I'll be back on it one day.

Yup, #37. I know what you mean though. I will probably just do #32 right after as it seems to be the next step, and then make up my mind about Sheiko, haha.

EDIT: I will run #40! Seems like a good step up from #37

I think that being flexible with the 1 rm is the key! I'm just starting to figure that out now, lol.

I get my gf to train with me sometimes. I put her through the big compounds movements and a few assistance afterwards.

On a sidenote, anyone doing the DTP workout? It looks interesting, i might get it a shot.

I have. Make sure you do not mention much about size and mad strength gains. Some women can get sensitive about it.

I know for a fact jordanl250 has before for deadlifts, i recall him mentioning it before. The guy deadlifts 585 at 170ish bw. Not saying its the reason why he has such a strong lift, but who knows, it might have contributed a bit

Maybe grow a pair of nuts and voice your opinion, haters gonna hate, better to be hated than to be liked.
Btw nice glasses, working out doesn't help you getting out of the glasses and poor facial aesthetics
1. i have no idea what you're referring to as you posted nothing even remotely related to working out
2. opinions that are not based on empirical information are mostly trash, and should be treated as such

^lol, I won't talk about something if I don't know about it. I didn't know about biceps, so I didn't even bother comment on what works for biceps. Tell me how is the heel strike during gait cycle (walking) different from a standard calve raise? Talking trash? I don't have time for that. You wanna continue? I was gonna stop. But if you wanna continue go ahead, I will play along.

PM me, im your living example

I remember u saying u were quad dominant so i think you have a similar case to me. Ill show u my rehab program/exercises that has been working for me.

One thing I will say is that the cracking sound is fine. It's when theres pain accompanying the cracking that you should start worrying.

I've been getting a lot of cracking too. From what I heard, if there is no pain associated with cracking, you should be fine.

You should start foam rolling your IT Band. I bough a foam roller and FR my IT band + quads every night before bed time. I now rarely get cracking when I walk on even surface. However, the problem persists when I walk up and down hills/stairs.
