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.
