Ilya Ilyin Progress Tracker Spreadsheet *Update* 290kg Front Squat

Let’s stalk track Ilya Ilyin’s progress during his 2014 build up.

A while ago I had the idea to keep track of Ilya’s progress. So for each of his videos I started to enter the biggest lifts into a spreadsheet.

This thing will be updated along the way.

Download: Link to the spreadsheet. Go to File –  ‘Make a Copy’ to your Google Drive or ‘Download as’ (xlsx for Excel for example).


When you click on a weight it will open the video at the time of the lift.

Share ideas, or report errors I may have introduced, in the comments.

Highlight 31.07.2014:

Highlight 20.07.2014: 185kg Snatch and 239kg Clean & Jerked at the Anatoly Khrapaty Memorial Tournament.

Update 07.07.2014 – Observations: His loading pattern when working up to a heavy single is often that of a “Wave” (Ilya refers to them as “attacks“. Sportivnypress has an article about them).

Like on the 30.06.2014 videos he did 3 waves for Snatch and C&J:

And he doesn’t limit this approach to the classical either, he often uses it for Squats [video] / Front Squats too.

What’s more, he doesn’t take too long of a rest either (judging from the music in the background). So it kind of resembles competition attempts in a way.
