Cut is officially on. Well, in a month once I get acclimated to night lifting again. Just picked this up.

For all the bike buddies.... it has period correct Mavic tubulars and Dura Ace components lol. The tube shifters shift nicer than my motorcycle and car. I just hope the LBS does tubulars.

Haha.

 

I just found out that Boris Sheiko has a forum.

http://sheiko-program.ru/forum/

 

You should def check it out if you're interested in his programs, his methods or just generally how to program your own strength training.

Solid info from one of the best coaches in the world and I think the forum is just gonna get better.

Sheiko squat program is probably the most worthwhile thing I've ever done. At the start I was hitting 275 for 5 and finished the program with 405 x 8 PR (nowhere near that now though).

 

I feel like everybody should run Sheiko once in their life.

You could probably get good money for the DA parts on that if they're in god condition.

Tubulars for daily riding? I wouldn't deal with that. You have to carry an entire tire to fix a flat.

Unless you're a vintage bike collector, $200 was too much for that.

I want to get a road bike when i (hopefully) move out to LA, but i'm terrified that i'm gonna get super ripped off.

Road bikes are for nerds. I got this to cruise to the gym and around town --

I dont know where you live, but road bikes are expensive as hell in Charlotte. $200 for a road bike in decent shape is a good deal here.

Yea I agree. I will probably get some CXP22s and sell these. I don't want anything I can't fix myself.

For vintage DA? I'm not sure. I bought an old trek that had vintage suntour superbe components and I sold the groupset for like half of what I paid for the bike.

I'll just be way ahead of the 90's revival curve.

I had a fixie. BUT, I could trackstand with no hands, and before I got lazy I was pretty fast.

So, I'm doing Stronglifts. Still getting going, started very light to focus on form. Currently at

Squats - 135
Bench Press - 100
Barbell Row - 110
Overhead Press - 85
Deadlift - 175

And just for reference, I'm 5'9" 170 lb and this is the first time I've lifted in years.

It's going well, squats/deads/bench are not bad, but I'm already struggling with the rows and the overhead press. Any recommendations on other lifts to hit to make those easier? Or pointers on common mistakes I might be making?

Thanks.
