Do you think it's probably the first time you have trained properly doing the routine why you are aching and have training hurt
Take that into consideration before you dump it if you want to be the best you have to train to be the best

Yes, it's the first time I've trained properly. Never tried training properly before, it made me sweat and it nearly went in my eyes.
I usually go to the gym every other Wednesday whether I need to train or not so twice a week was really hard.

Not sure which 9 week Russian peaking cycle your doing but you should only deadlift once a week

Was the one posted above somewhere. Don't matter now, it ain't for me. Can stand up straight today for the first time since Friday !! Haha.
Deadlifting twice a week sucks arse.

Sacked it off after only 3 sessions.
My back was in tatters after only the first heavy'ish set.
My ability to recover in 3 days from Deadlifting, in order to do it again is not there.
I don't believe this Russian stuff is s**t, just s**t for me at this time !!
I may well have come good on it if I'd persevered, but the way my back felt yesterday evening and today...I ain't risking it !!

force10 said:Use it but only deadlift one day a week and if the last sets are 6x6 or 3x3 just do 1 set as you will seriously batter your cns and will not get best recovery

This was my main concern.
The only thing that is keeping me interested is because, 1, I have based the reps on a max of 290kg, which is a snatch lower than where I probably am right now and have rounded a lot of the weight down, and 2, I will not be squatting for the duration of this routine apart from some light front squats on the lighter day as some assistance. I'm hoping the dropping of the squats will see me good on the CNS front.
Be interested to hear your opinion.

It's the 1st one I'm planning on doing.

I have used for all 3 powerlifts to good effect. Assuming your are reffering to the Russian squat routine. 3 weeks volume, 3 weeks intensity.

This one...

up to 6x6 at 80%. Be careful - have done a couple of successful runs in past on squat and bench but I ended up with a pec injury couple months ago and couldn't bench full range at all for 3 weeks. should see good increase in strength from all the practice with heavy weights if you can manage the fatigue.

Thanks, yes the 6 week cycle.
The numbers look more than sensible and do-able, just not sure how the body will react to deadlifting twice a week for first time EVER !! Will be adjusting my squat accordingly to accomodate.
Might even switch to front squat and do on same day as the lighter deadlift session for the duration of this thing.

Nothing wrong with training partners being competative during sessions in my opinion, especially with guys who you've trained with for a long time. A guy I train with is a stronger squatter than me, I aimed to close the gap month after month. It spurred me on, never f**king happened, but it kept me motivated.
All needs to be done in the right manner though !

Just wondering what opinions are out there of a 6-week Russian peaking cycle for the Deadlift ?

Deadlifting twice a week, doesn't ordinarily appeal to be fair, but thinking of giving this a go as I want a big pull in 7 weeks but it's not the end of the world if this program doesn't work !!

My structure building up to all previous comps has been lacking and a bit more discipline might not do me any harm.
» Powerlifting and assistance work (Go to post)16-10-2015 @ 23:17 
I'd be more inclined to do an upper/lower split over 2 sessions but that's just me.
A lot make a squat/dead session work well together, I've never been a fan but over 2 hours you could mix it up plenty.
» Powerlifting and assistance work (Go to post)16-10-2015 @ 20:05 
I can't imagine you'd suffer much if you concentrate on the main lifts and bin off a lot of assistance to be fair.
Never only trained twice a week so can't offer advice in that area.
How long are your sessions likely to last ?

Great gesture...
That Squat routine looks appealing, not sure if my hamstrings could handle squatting 3 sessions per week mind. Might take a few weeks to adjust...
» how many hours of sleep do you get? (Go to post)02-09-2015 @ 15:07 
If I the lifestyle to allow 8 hours kip, I would. Leave it be.
I manage on 6-7 hours, so long as its quality sleep and not broken, that's ample for me.
