However, I am biased towards Sheiko. The Sheiko programs just goes into way more detail and has a ton of real science and years of coaching experience with thousands of athletes put into it, not to mention Boris Sheiko himself used to coach the Russian IPF team. Russia is still the country with the most powerlifters at the top level if you don't account for multiply and they still train in a way similar to the Sheiko programs. No offense to Brandon Lilly's or Candito's work but you simply can't compare them to Boris Sheiko, imo. My coach uses a lot of typical Sheiko programming methods and I've personally had great success with it so far.

Thanks.  I've heard of Sheiko but never really looked into it.  I'll check it out though.

I had my first golf lesson today. Never golfed. It was a bunch of fun, hyped to actually get good enough to play.

Feels good purging almost all my size medium shirts. Hopefully I'll never fit a medium again at least until I'm retired.

I am happy with my snatch progress.

Big pull, solid bar path, but I catch it forward on toes. This tends to happen when I got heavy. Music is for the hook grip vibes.

I personally would not do the Cube Method. It lacks in frequency. Candito's strength program seems better in that regard.

You can read some very solid in-depth breakdowns of the programs here:

That's some awesome advice! What do you think of the ProgramingToWin novice program? I've been checking it out. I like the idea you do bench, squat , and dead lift three times a week. There are 3 phases in the novice program including a deload phase and a heavy phase. Any information on that would be appreciated!

I think the PTW Novice Program is too specific. It lacks in variety and different movements. Its the same problem that SS and SL5x5 has, just repeating the same movements over and over again until they don't force as much adaptations from your body simply because it is used to doing them. The basic template of squatting, benching and deadlifting every session works. I just prefer some variety in the lifts by doig another version of them, say a front squat or snatch grip deadlift instead if a normal squat and deadlift again. Doing the exact same movements again and again is a recipe for overuse injuries and declining marginal benefit.

I think you should also add accessory movements to address whatever muscular, postural, mobility and technique problems you have.

I can only speak from my personal experience and my coach put me on a program with a lot of variety in terms of lifts, reps, sets, and so on, and I still consider myself an early intermediate lifter. I ldo 2-3 different kind of squats, 4-5 kinds if benching and 3-4 kinds of deadlifts every week. Every 4 weeks we change the programming just a little bit. All in all, I don't really belive in doing a set program until it stops working. That does not mean you should be program-hopping, but rather that you should have a long term plan and periodize your training into small blocks, each focusing on different things.

From what I've seen, the Powerlifting To Win programs are actually a set of programs that you should advance in between as your total grows. That would be a good approach, if his programs are sound in the first place.

As I've said, I'd rather do a system of programs that has been run by thousands of lifters in a country, has solid reasearch backing and has produced many lifters at the top international level. Sheiko is imo unparallaled in that regard. Izzy at PTW is simply not as qualified as Boris Sheiko thus he can't have made as good of a program imo. For more advanced lifters, I think Tuchscherers RTS System is great.

Speaking of cars (semi recently), do any of you guys have experience with Plasti Dip?
I've been wanting to black out the badges and wheels on my car but I'm kind of skeptical about how easily it will come off - I have a full warranty and service package and there's some shit in there about additional paint working voiding the paint warranty, if it peels right off like advertise then it doesn't matter but if it doesn't come off that easy I don't want to void anything.

Erm don't suppose she's living in a flat in Holborn as I'm moving in with a girl I've never met moving from the states to do her MPH at the London school of hygiene and tropical medicine and it's a pretty small school if I remember,.....

I think she was from arkansas though or like missouri.

So excite for the winter, bulking goal is 240lb 20%. Will be so ugly and fat.

I've used plastidip on interior pieces in the past. Holds up pretty well but I don't suggest using it on exterior pieces.. it's going to come off pretty easily and going to look like shit.

Really? They have a pack that is supposedly designed specifically for alloy and aluminum wheels. It's like 3 cans of flat black and then 3 cans of the gloss. And then there's a "car trim" pack for plastic and metallic trim, again, supposedly designed specifically for cars/bikes.
I've never used it and I've never known anybody else that has either,
But when I started looking around for ways to do it 90% of the stuff I found was for plasti dip.
So is it just like a rubberized silicone or something?

There are videos on YouTube, where the wrap entire cars and I know a guy who sprayed his sons entire car as a test for his business and it holds up well.
