No worries.

CMS is really good imo. I'm still at Class 2.

You could run the program as its written for your first run, at least the variations of the main lifts. Where it says "Lats" or "Chest", its up to you to choose some kind of row or db press/flye.

This is how I was taught - Deloads should follow really, really hard training. Weather it be through volume, intensity, or both. My progressions is set up as 6 weeks, by 5th week my volume and intensity is so high in the gym I am surprised I make it through the week. Then you back off a week, still do everything but at like 50%. Then at week 1 your body has recovered from the stress and is now stronger, they call that super compensation. So if you don't think you have given your shoulders enough to get some super compensation then maybe just deload on your bench.

High volume on the big lifts will feel like hell if you are going from a standard 5 x 5 template. I don't know how much volume is in Sheiko, but it took me a good 2 months to get use to squatting for 15, 12, 10, 8, 15 reps. High volume is awesome though in that it will really show you where your week points are. Good luck!

Deloads usually cut your volume in half or so, and don't go over about 80% as far as intensity go. But its mostly a reduction in volume, as volume is what causes the most fatigue.

 

If you set up your program well, you don't really need a "deload" as most people know it. I have weeks of extreme volume, and then the next week is usually a bit lower volume but higher intensity. It varies a lot from week to week for me and some weeks are def harder than others, but I never really have an easy week.

Sheiko does not use high reps for the main lifts. Most sets are of 2-3 reps, with some 4s and 5s thrown in. You very rarely do 8 reps. Its just a ton of sets, often in pyramids.
The accessory work is usually 5x5 or 4-5 sets of 8-10.

A lot of weightlifting (olympic) training programs lack high volume periods, and I agree that there is much to be gained from venturing into double digit rep territory from time to time. One notable exception is the LSUS program that does 10rep schemes for 3 weeks before moving to 5rep and 3rep periods of 3 weeks each. I'm probably going to run the LSUS program sometime this year, I will see if it is as brutal as everyone says it is.

Knucks shoes live on. These do have a higher instep than my Powerlifts, probably good for me though because I don't want to loose my arch.

knuckshoes fit me like a glove. if they weren't so fuck-ugly i would stop obsessing over other oly shoes.

Sometimes I forget this is a fashion forum

And yea I am going to do regular deloads. conceptionist the variation of volume on a lot of programs may amount to an indirect deload. I find that every 2 or so months I hit a wall... then I take a break, come back and am stronger. I'm gonna see what happens if I take a break once a month instead.

Excel brahs got a question

Im trying to determine the A n B coefficients in what I'm estimating to be this kind of relationship: Ax + By = z from a set of data

Basically a multi dimensional linear regression

Excel only seems to have a 2D regression (i.e. a correlation between 1 set of variables to 1 set of outcomes)

Is there anything I can use in Excel to do what I'm thinking

Call capital IQ and tell them it's really urgent and they need to prioritise it.

I just make pretty graphs and tables without grid lines because they're ugly.

I once made a box plot graph and my MD said it was ugly and i should try to use more pie charts
