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.
- What it is: A way to visualize Ilya’s progress.
- What it is not: His training program. He does a lot more than what is shown in his videos.
Share ideas, or report errors I may have introduced, in the comments.

Highlight 07.08.2014: 245kg Rack Jerk
While we’re talking 245kg Overhead, re-watch:
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:
- he worked up to 215kg, then dropped down to 200kg
- takes 200, 210 and 220kg for the heaviest weight that day
- repeats the process with the same weights (200-210-220)
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.
