Default “I Dont Know Squat” Log

New training goals ,

A few month ago , Hazzard kindly suggested to me that I have a look at Smolov , at the time it didn’t suit to start it so I put it on the long finger .
But I think I am ready to give it a good run.

Starting 1RM lifts

Squat – 165kg / 363lbs
DL - 190Kg / 418lbs
Bench – 135Kg / 297lbs

Ill follow the template as closely as I can, but for obvious reasons I wont be in the gym in the evenings or weekends , so some recovery times will be shorter than ideal.

As the next competition I will do is not till November
( National Push / Pull Champs ) it gives me lots of time to get my squat number up to a more respectable one , and ill hope for similar carryover to my DL that Hazzard got…

Ill get some upper work in at the end of each session if I have any time/will left!
Will keep this to stuff like bench , GCBP , chins, pull ups , rows , clean and press


Today is the first session…
Let the fun begin!

Love the log title and good luck with Smolov. Have thought about it but since 5 x 3 is brutal, I can't imagine what 10x3 after 3 other heavy days would be like. It's a manmaker though and when you get through this, your squat will be awesome (as well as everything else). I imagine you're going off 90% rather than 100%? Apparently, that's a key to surviving the cycle

Awesome Maxes there mark. I think your squat is very respectable. It won't be long before it is to 4 PPS. Daddy Power FTW!!

Nice one Mark! You'll do well. I think you will swim, although I'd be seriously concerned with the "currents" you've chosen to overcome! Still, you are butt strong, so here we go.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
