The pain in my neck from last weeks pullups actually worked it's way to "nearly debilitating". My week was over at that point. In light of this, I have restarted Smolov this week, and having done the first three workouts, decided to bump the weight up 5lbs per set in the interest of reduced math. I.e. 225 vice 220, 275 vice 270. Also decided to stick to JUST the exercises outlined in the program.
The pain from my neck is still a dull ache at rest, but while working it was a non-issue.
