    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 : MOCK MEET

    .................... After having to shut squats down a bit early after a easy 525 because of some pain in my left Glute, I was happy to walk away with a 10 lb PR in bench hitting a paused 350 lbs and a 15 lb PR in Deads hitting 650 lbs. As much as I was dying to kill 550 without wraps in squat I would rather stay injury free and hit something huge in 4 weeks at my meet when I have some knee wraps on. 300 Kg (660) in Deads is looking like a good meet goal.

    Squat (No knee Wraps)
    135 X 5 X 3
    225 X 4 X 2
    315 X 3
    405 X 2
    455 X 1
    1st Attempt : 500
    2nd Attempt : 525
    Shut it down. Sharp pain in left glut causing me to baby it in the hole.

    Bench (Competition pause)
    95 X 6 X 3
    135 X 5 X 2
    185 X 4
    225 X 3
    275 X 2
    300 X 1
    1st attempt : 315
    2nd attempt : 335
    3rd attempt : 350 (10lb PR)
    4th attempt : 360 (Miss) Probably would of had it if I didn't go 350 before!

    Deadlift
    135 X 5 X 2
    225 X 5 X 2
    315 X 4
    405 X 3
    500 X 2
    545 X 1
    1st attempt : 600
    2nd attempt : 625
    3rd attempt : 650 (15 lb PR)

    1525 Total @ 216 with lots left in squat!

    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 : WEEK 1 Day 1 OF MEET PREP

    .................... Starting things off a little heavier then usual for bench because I dont plan on increasing the percentages much if at all for the last 3 weeks of training. Wanted to do sets of 3 at 465 in squat but it just wasn't there. Every rep of 440 felt great. Depth was easy to hit and I felt strong. Glut was still a little sore but went away after a couple heavy sets. I plan on wrapping up for the first round of squatting on fridays then some speed / pause sets for the 2nd round. Since I am in meet prep i will be a little conservative but still plan on killing every workout!

    Bench press (Pausing the last rep)
    190 X 5
    230 X 4
    265 X 3 X 2

    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 : WEEK 1 Day 3 OF MEET PREP

    .................... Being new to Sheiko type training I knew I had a lot to learn and was taught a lesson yesterday. After 10 weeks of pushing the envelope, increasing percentages weekly, and making some crazy gains my body told me its time to reload and slow down a bit. I think the key is to ease into a cycle, hit your stride, smash some PR's then dial it down before you repeat the process. Being drug free my limits are reached often but it doesn't mean I can push past them with a relentless passion to improve. I will drop my maxes for the program to true maxes and only pyramid up by 5 lbs on top sets for week 2 and 3 to hit my stride. Excited to see how wraps feel tomorrow for squats! Have not wrapped up since december!

    Deficit deadlift (Double overhand no belt)

Will hit a heavier single next week along with my working sets being a bit higher. I also messed around with a wider grip in bench and it seemed to help ease the pain of my bicep. I also felt like I was able to get a lot tighter as I lowered the bar to my chest. Back on track!

    ................. Starting get a lot more comfortable with my wider bench grip and every rep in squat was buried!

    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 : WEEK 2 Day 3 OF MEET PREP

    ................. Simple but intense workout! Bench felt good even though I would of liked a little more speed on my 315 single. I love how short intervals feel with deads because it tanks my gluts and lower back and forces them to work overtime to complete the last couple sets. I walked away from this workout knowing my lockout improved.

    ................. Strength continues to climb. 530 felt pretty good and bench felt great! I wanted to do speed + Pause sets at the end but my right hip flexor / groin was fired up and would not of been happy with more squats. Ice, heat, and wrap and I will be good to go for deads!

    ................. Groin / Hip flexor held up fine. I was surprised how smooth the lockouts felt after my second pause of my deadlifts. It shows that my lockout is improving big time.

    ................. Took everything inside me not to squat but I would rather be healthy on wednesday and friday from my last heavy days before the meet.

    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 : WEEK 3 Day 3 OF MEET PREP

    ................. Last heavy deadlift day in the books! I do plan on hitting another double pause / hip thrusts day however. Groin seems to be almost back to 100% and feeling good. Taking a extra day between deads and squats to allow it ample time to heal up. Instead of working out friday I will bump it to saturday and hit my last heavy squat workout. Then most likely do my double pause / hip thrusts day on monday to finish up deads. Then all that is left is a light squat and light bench with my feet up on wednesday and a couple days of rest until showtime!

    “Though the road has been hard as the day is long, I wouldn’t trade in a second. The strength that’s allowed me to endure doesn’t come from what you see-- the callused hands, blood shot eyes, and bleeding shins. No, it runs deeper. To get to it, you’d have to cut away all the layers of doubt and distraction till knife hits bone. The seconds are passing by. Find that itch... Scratch till there’s nothing left.”

    .................. Wow what can I say about this meet other than giving credit where credit is due. Without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ none of this would be possible. After being very very disappointed with my last two meets going 9 for 9 and hitting giant PR's all day long was like a dream. Having smoked all my lifts going into my last deadlift, I experienced one of the biggest adrenaline rushes of my life as I pointed to the heavens, repeated Phil 4:13 in my head and gave 661 for a ride. Grinding it out and setting the bar down I let all my built up anger, fear, blood, sweat, tears, and disappointments go in a emotional release I will never forget. Embracing everyone who has been there for me through thick and thing with hugs and high fives is a moment that still chokes me up. Receiving texts very soon after from all my friends and family who could not attend was also very special. I live and breath powerlifting and I pour my heart and soul into every meet with more passion every time. It was truly an amazing experience to finally reap what I sowed after months of hard work. What struck me the most and played a part in my freak out was finally achieving what I set out to do at a meet. New goals have been set and I am looking forward to see what God has in Store for me in the future!

    ................. Weight felt heavy today but I was not surprised after mondays workout. I could barely bend over on tuesday so being able to double 600 a few times felt great. Felt a small strain in lower back doing stiff legs so shut it down a little early. Will bump training back a day so my last 3 training days will be saturday, sunday, then tuesday to wrap it up! I was hooked up with a deep tissue massage on tuesday so im pumped to get the kinks worked out and be 100 % by show time. Not worried about the lower back i have felt it before and will belt up from here on out and be good to go.

    ................. Shutting down training early to allow my back to heal. I am confident the work I put in to recharge, reload, and smoke a PR on the 21st was sufficient. I will let this week be all about rest, recovery, and an opportunity to enjoy the blessings I received from what initially looked like as a set back. I am excited to mentally prepare and visualize bringing more intensity, passion, and faith to the stage April 21st at my first Pro level show. No matter what your situation is never focus on the negatives. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and if you dig hard enough, a situation that may look discouraging can very well be a blessing.

    Well im dissapointed to say the least. Warmed up to 455 and my back injury forced me to shut it down and pull out of the competition. Looks like its worse then I thought. First Pro show and amazing opportunity missed but keeping a postive attitude. Will talk to Chiropractor monday and focus on bench and rehab to fix all my weaknesses to correct this issue. Incredibly blessed for all the people who support me and I really wish I could of hit something big for ya. Next full meet is in December and I promise I'll come back Stronger then ever. Nothing in my life has ever came easy and powerlifting is no exception. Faith, dedication, passion, and discipline has never failed me and those four things will get my through this.

    ................. Day 1 back in the gym was rough. Trying to stay patient and figure out what I need to do in the gym to strengthen the muscles needed to fix this Si Joint problem. Its hard for me to not go balls to the wall in a training session so this next few weeks are gonna be just as hard mentally as physical coming back from this injury. None the less what doesn't kill my makes me stronger so will keep a positive attitude! Starting bench pretty light because i didnt bench much these last few weeks and will slowly add weight. Will be hammering posterior chain work because i think it will be a remedy for this problem.

    ................. Learning more and more everyday on where my weaknesses are. I believe I have a extended anterior pelvic tilt that may be causing the lower back pain. Been working on some stretches to bring back some mobility and lower back pain has already started to go away. Its looking like I will need to change my squat form up a little bit and not sit back so much. I have been watching videos of Sam Byrd on how he squats and will work on it each time squats come up. I actually think this style of squatting will actually have more carryover to my deads.

    ................. Bench is starting to feel comfortable again! Squats felt better in a sense I could hit depth easier but my back felt way unstable. After 275 X 3 it was telling me to stop. Trying to work on a new form of squatting where I dont allow my but to raise out of the hole. Its gonna take a lot of practice, New bar placement, different decent, and HAMMERING glute work and learning how to use them out of the hole. Atleast i have some time to work on it ha. Looking forward to a more upright squat form and a smoother squat.

    SHEIKO MASTER OF SPORT PREP # 2 Bench Focus / Back rehab : WEEK 2 Day 5-6

    ................. I thought progress was being made on the back rehab until a set of 5 with 225 squats about put me on my face from my back seizing up so bad. Seeing a ART Chiropractor specialists on monday to figure this thing out! In the meantime shutting squats and deads down for 4 weeks. Sounds pretty depressing but in the meantime I will bring up weaknesses in my Glutes and hamstrings, focus on the bench and accessories to help it catch up, and work on mobility. By the time I am able to squat and deadlift again my weaknesses will be my strengths and my numbers will sky rocket. My drive, faith, and dedication will not be shaken and no matter what circumstance I am in I will always be making progress.
