I am considering running Smolov Squat, I have always wanted to try it out, and my 2 training partners want to run it.
I just have a few questions.
1. Should I do any benching/pressing and back work?
2. I have the Oly pulls 2x a week and I dont want to give them up. Do you think the Smolov + Oly Pulls will be too much?
There are a lot of variables Spart.
Walk into it, and watch the intensity and you should be ok. It's all about management through a cycle.
If your serious about this I would look at this as a multiple cycle event.
think long term and look at maybe three cycles with a upping of intensity through each one.
Benchig, Pressing. Pick one, I'd go with pressing.
Pavel has a write up on this in his book "Beyond Bodybuilding". I have the PDF at home, and I will try to post it up for you. . I don't remember what he says as far as programming other lifts with the squats, but I'm sure he makes some sort of recommendations.
1) Pressing/Benching sure.
2) Back work might be possible, depends on how well you cope with high volume stuff. Hazz did fine on it.
Thanks for the advice!!
I figure the Olympic lifts give a lot of back work anyway so I was just thinking 3 days a week alternate between some bench press or overhead press.
