Best of luck Kman. I personally think I could handle front squats better than back squats on Smolov, except for possible lower back and neck brutality. For some reason my CNS handles the eccentrics from front squats better.

Hope it works out well for you.

I never really thought about it but you're right. Back squats are more taxing to me then front squats. Maybe it's the weight difference.

SFW Kman!

thanks man. i'm not sure how i'll handle it. i think my lower back may get too worn out, fronts hit them really hard.

also sometimes my knees end up a little sore from them... i'll see how my body deals with it

i think i'm actually not going to do it... hahaha. really chaos and pain has been working very well and is just as much if not more intense then it.

i think for now i'll just continue with what i'm doing...

You're making good progress. Run it until you drop.
