Some content is really good, especially the stuff about different lifts and how to tweak them for hitting certain muscles harder and so on.
Not completely sold on all of the diet stuff. I'm sure what he posts is true, not sure how useful its for the general lifter though, like organic/grass fed/etc...

Yeah I think with the nutrition he's super careful since he almost died from some rare colon disorder or something.

I like to use two forks.

Going to do a marine mud run challenge in two weeks, pretty excited. 5 miles, 30 obstacles. Should be good cardio.

Mine too but I would never want to be that big personally.

Yeah me either, and it's not like I actually could. 

But in terms of training and diet philosophy and his persona, I've met him at the EFS learn to train seminars and he's a really good guy and one of those guys that just wants to learn and teach. He's never dogmatic about anything he just tries shit out and takes what works and throws away what doesn't.

A lot of his techniques and exercise tweaks are staples in my training, plus he still gets my $8/month for the website which is beyond worth it.

Started novice Sheiko today. I expected it to crush me but it really wasn't that bad. I actually breezed through it in about 45 minutes. I am guessing this means:

1. I went too light on the weights. My understanding is that weight is generally supposed to be 60% of 1RM. I was probably a little lower than that but didn't want to burn out too quickly

2. I didn't rest enough between sets.

Perhaps the answer is both 1 and 2.

If you didn't rest enough, it would be too hard not too easy.

Many people who come from programs with higher average intensity (say 5x5) feel the same the first week.

My advice is to not increase the weights yet. It is supposed to be light in the start so you can practice on perfecting your technique on every rep. In fact, you are never supposed to lift close to failure on Sheiko (unless testing), since it is all practice of the lifts. Do not rush.

The volume will increase over the weeks to the point where weights will feel heavier than usual because of accumulated fatigue. This should be maybe halfway in.

The general recommendation is to increase the max that the weights are calculated from every 4 weeks if it still feels too light, so wait 4 weeks at least. But don't put in maxes that are over your current 1RM. Ideally you test at the end and then use the new maxes for the whole next cycle.

I like high intensity cuz it keeps my legs normal-ish sized :teach:
