Thank you. I've got the rest of my first wave to log, but time is pinchy this evening. Maybe later tonight (after hockey practice), or tomorow (after hockey practice). BtB, we used to be able to edit our own posts indefinately. What happened to that feature?

I'm really tempted by a smolov bench (press) cycle myself! You're my stalking horse, if it works for you, I feel good in trying it.

Rock on.
Thank you, Mike. We'll see how it goes.

Thank you, jslep. They're getting up to respectable now. I should be at a PR in a couple of weeks.

I tell you, THIS session about did me in. I was as sore as I've ever been for four days. I was careful to stretch out very thoroughly afterwards too. Maybe that had something to do with the soreness.

Well, as long as Bogdan doesn't smell LIKE Smolov, then we're fine. I've got to study some other journals, and figure out just how to morph the Smolov concept into what I'm doing now. I hate to give up heavy deads and squats. Overhead presses I could trade in for now. Anyway, its being chewed on right now. Maybe another cycle or two of the straight 531 variant.
