I'm thinking about giving it a whirl for 6 months.

I haven't tried it but is a good specialization routine. Lots of volume and good gains are possible. There are a number of programs. Start with #29 the first time.

There's far too much benching in it for me, otherwise i would love to try it. I've heard a lot of good things about it.

KPj

EDIT: That's got to be the first PL orientated training program i've seen with flies in it.

Looks interesting...

As KPJ Said, Lots of Bench, and Lots of Squats.

Why would the routine have you squat twice during the same workout, but neither sesssions is above 80% of your 1RM?

That seems like it would be better for conditioning and not overall strength.

I took a brief look at it out of curiousity, and unless I skipped over it too fast, #29 is a conditioning/prep 1st month type of thing, kind of similar to Korte's prep portion (Phase I) of his 3X3. I'm not sure why the double squats though.

It is all part of the Shieko training. Apparently you focus a ton on form. From what I have been reading, lately, it works well. Sucks, but works well.

Shieko never has made sense to me. The focus is on volume with lower training percentages.

As we know when there is an inverse relationship between volume and intenstiy. When one goes up the other goes down.

With that said, many people have had success with Sheiko. One of the pioneers of Sheiko was powerlifter, Jim Williams. Williams benched 675 in the late 1960s, which was freaky.

Williams bench fairly heavy to heavy four times a week. Jay Schroeder provided me with that information in a phone interview with him.

Williams Bench Press training program can be found in The Bench Press http://www.drjudd.net/v2/index.php?main ... 913894e052

As with most things, the only way you'll know is to try it.
