new year, new sheiko cycle

so, I finished my sheiko plan for 2016. at times, it hurt. did #29, #30, #31 and almost #32 due to illness. luckily, #32 is just a peaking cycle. still got some good lifts in but did not go for a new max. could easily repeat previous maxes, though, and I guess that counts for something.

after eating like a pig during the holidays I decided to go for a new sheiko cycle of 12-16 weeks. ideally, I will do 12 weeks, deload and then go for another 12 weeks.

at the end of january I will change gyms. for the last year, I have not only been lifting at work but also at the local commercial gym. now I have been in contact with a real weightlifting club. despite the name, they have not only weightlifters but also powerlifters. I think of this as a place where I can learn a lot of things.

some of my plans for the year are as follows, in no specific order:

  • squat 190 kg
  • bench >125 kg
  • deadlift 230 kg (i.e. just over 500 lbs)
  • sign my new work contract (I got the job mentioned here)
  • finish dark souls 3

for me personally, I have good reason to believe this year will be as good as 2016 was but in other ways. now I’m counting the days for a big goal of mine and if the plan holds, and I am pretty certain it will, I will reach that goal in just over one year.

be good to each other.

    I can feel my spine begging for mercy just looking at your squat and deadlift goals.

    Guessing the mystery goal will be as much fun as determining what sport RadBromance plays.
    Work related: you’ll finally have stolen enough drugs from the hospital to start your own clinic
    Romance: you are finally going to meet your internet supermodel girlfriend
    Cultural: the longboat will be finished and the crew ready. Time to punish Britain for brexit by sacking a monastery

    Tell me if I’m close 😁

      All noble goals. Wife might be upset about # 2, but Scandinavians are pretty relaxed about that sort of thing.

      work: pretty close. applied to participate in a study where I get intravenous ketamine in a low dose. the purpose is to determine if ketamine can be used as local anesthetic or not. will be fun.

      romance: as much of a cliché as it is, I have met the love of my life. for some reason she is living with me. would be awesome to have duke nukem as a side chick, though.

      cultural: spot on. want me to pick you up before we start the raiding?

        Sure, I already have the beard and the hammer of Thor. Also lawnmower steed is culturally authentic if anachronistic.

        I’d prefer to be a mage and run things from well behind the front lines. can you set me up with a sorcerer’s staff +10 or something? 🙂
