UPDATED: Go to post #206 for beginning of Sheiko. Hola all. Dan here. I decided to start up a separate log to record my attempt to use Mr. Lilly's "Cube Method" training. I still think of myself primarily as an Olympic Weightlifting coach but given the very sparse amount of coaching I get to do I suppose it's a good time to really push my own training and see what happens. For anyone wondering why I don't actively train for and compete in Olympic Weightlifting; I have chronic left knee pain(PFS) that is greatly agitated by the violent re-bending of the knee which is really the crux of Olympic Weightlifting. Or at least in the style that I coach. So, given that I can still perform the slow lifts with only minimal to moderate knee pain I figured I'd be as good at them as I can. Even though, admittedly, I'm not a big bench fan still. So, training and what not. I decided to give this Cube Method a go for a minimum of one full ten-week training cycle and just see how it goes. This will really be my first attempt to really follow mid-term pre-determined programming not written by myself. Best recent lifts/training TM Squat: 385#/365# Bench: 290/275 Deadlift: 525/505 I'm attempting to keep my BW between 170-175# so that if I ever decide to compete making my way to 165 won't be an issue. So far maintaining this training weight has been pretty easy and I splurge quite a bit honestly. I could easily go further down in weight, I believe. But I feel my frame is just too large to go lighter. Hell I might end up being too tall for 65 anyways but I don't think I'm in any position to be thinking that far ahead so, no worries.
