post #53656 of 57259
I have now been running novice Sheiko for a couple of weeks. A few observations:

- the upper body work has been easy. The lower body work has been moderately challening, particularly the box squats. I have spent far more time training upper than lower historically so this is to be expected
- recovery has not been too bad, much easier on the upper body than lower
- it has hard to tell if the program is "working." I am used to linear progression in which you are able to gauge your progress every day - either the weight is going up or not. On Sheiko, most lifts are at 60%-ish intensity and I have no idea if I am getting stronger. I guess you go through the program and get a sense every six weeks when you retest your 1RMs

Pt thinks shoulder issue is a SLAP tear.

Luckily it's super minor and he just wants me to do rotator cuff strengthening stuff. Got my work cut out for me.

Anyone have any ab workout/excerise recs? Haven't been working out my abs as much, but now that I'm cutting a bit, its time to start.

You don't need any before pictures.

This is the kind of workout intensity I can get behind.

Anybody got recs for good, cheap leggings (3/4 and full length)?

 

Nike always seems to be the best bet on sale, but figured I'd ask if anybody knows any no name brands that do it cheap.

 

I like that svelte leg feels.

I had it on both knees when I was younger. Only seriously hurt for a couple years while I played soccer. I've had occasional pain in the past few years, but nothing serious. I'm in PT now for a knee issue (which turned out to only be a sprain and no structural damage, thankfully) and the PT blamed weak hips for a lot of my knee issues. One of my knees doesn't track correctly and she said strengthening the hip will help. Makes sense after she showed me, so I'm doing that, a bunch of other accessory work and it should be a lot better going forward. I need to strengthen my core definitely. I had a double sports hernia surgery a couple years ago though, so core work is sometimes hard for me.

Also from being in PT a few times over the years I've realized the benefits of actually going to a good PT. A couple places I went only had older people and not athletes. I'm going to one now more for athletes. A couple of the pro athletes / retired pro athletes come here for rehab / training so it's pretty cool rehabbing next to them.

I've also been looking for logo-less leggings, all the nike/adidas ones have weirdly placed logos that you can't hide. Uniqlo heattech ones were pretty good but need something to wear for the summer.

Truth. Going to a PT that takes part in the same activities that you do is best. Makes a world of difference when the PT really understands and supports what you are trying to do.

Your thoughts are expected given your past lifting programs. My program is like a more extreme version of Sheiko (higher volume, higher frequency, and even lighter weights) and the most common thoughts/problems I have are:
- session felt too easy.
- the question is not if I will make the lift but rather if I have the patience to do all lifts with perfect technique
- going to the gym so often and feeling like every session is about the same
- since every session is light and somewhat similar, I have a very hard time judging my max strength. It has been over my expectactions every meet so far.

So stick with it and see what happens on test day. Just make sure to perfect the technique while the weights are still light.

189 this morning, must have dropped a bunch of water, too bad it's not an official weigh in or I'd be crammin a pizza down my fat gullet. Hit my reps on squat yesterday so I'm up to 340, also found $10 on the sidewalk. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
