Sheiko is used by Wade Hooper, for instance, and others. Korte was used by... Korte. And Smolov is used by tons of people. The problem with these programs can be the time requirement per workout. Sheiko workouts can last up to 2 hours..

Sorry, didn't mean to jack the thread. Also, the book you're referring to Ado is Practical Programming for Strength Training.

I've always been interested in Sheiko. I wish someone would come out with a better translation of their book.
