So went and hit the gym and nothing hurts except when I walk in my bench setup but that’s an easy fix I’ll switch to my oly shoes and plant the heel

2018-02-28 00:41:13 UTC  

Went ahead and hit my prescribed deadlifts and ohp for the day cause I felt good. Will take a light days before squats to be extra safe

2018-02-28 19:10:37 UTC  

The lack of squat focus of my oly program took away my 315 PR low bar back squat. feelsbadman

2018-02-28 19:11:13 UTC  

I think I'll pick the SS program back up in conjunction with my oly program which will basically have me lifting almost every day

2018-02-28 19:16:10 UTC  

If you really want to get your squat up do a Smolov Jr cycle

2018-02-28 19:16:41 UTC  

Got me from 400 to 500 by the end

2018-02-28 19:26:12 UTC  

I'll check that out @BigBadSaxon - ID thanks

2018-02-28 19:26:51 UTC  

It's a hellish couple months but you'll be the best at squatting you've ever been

2018-02-28 19:27:18 UTC  

I'm long over my fear of squatting lol

2018-02-28 19:29:17 UTC  

Smolov will make you fear again haha

2018-02-28 19:40:32 UTC  

damn 10 sets of 3 at 85%

2018-02-28 19:40:33 UTC  

sheeit

2018-02-28 19:41:56 UTC  

The hard days were the 9 rep sets for me

2018-02-28 19:42:14 UTC  

And just knowing that every day at the gym that squat bar is waiting for you

2018-02-28 19:42:25 UTC  

Was terrifying and exhilirating

2018-02-28 19:43:03 UTC  

Oh wait I was looking at the full smolov

2018-02-28 19:43:34 UTC  

so the Jr is only 3 weeks? Is that enough to see improvement?

2018-02-28 19:44:02 UTC  

I guess I can just pick up where the Jr left off and continue the full

2018-02-28 19:44:14 UTC  

That's what I ended up doing

2018-02-28 19:44:38 UTC  

We had to cut the full one short because of a deployment but the squat and overall body gains were unreal

2018-02-28 19:44:49 UTC  

Smolov is real shit.

2018-02-28 19:45:00 UTC  

awesome, did you gain any lean mass?

2018-02-28 19:45:31 UTC  

I assume you were eating a lot, looks like a lot of volume to not be eating a ton for recovery

2018-02-28 19:46:08 UTC  

I gained half an inch on my biceps and lost inches around my waist

2018-02-28 19:46:21 UTC  

were you doing the bench cycle?

2018-02-28 19:46:27 UTC  

No

2018-02-28 19:46:44 UTC  

damn half an inch on the arms on a squat program? lol

2018-02-28 19:46:57 UTC  

Yeah. It was strange

2018-02-28 19:47:16 UTC  

question; were you low bar or high bar squatting?

2018-02-28 19:47:22 UTC  

And to this day my ass got so big girls comment on it regularly

2018-02-28 19:47:28 UTC  

Low bar

2018-02-28 19:47:40 UTC  

lol my ex was obsessed with how round my ass got

2018-02-28 19:47:47 UTC  

tbh I think mine got too big

2018-02-28 19:47:52 UTC  

🍑

2018-02-28 19:48:23 UTC  

I got up to 265 at my last powerlifting meet so I hear you

2018-02-28 19:48:26 UTC  

My oly coach wants me to switch to high bar which sucks since I can't lift nearly as much weight that way

2018-02-28 19:49:27 UTC  

I'd listen just because oly lifting is so toight

2018-02-28 19:49:32 UTC  

TOIGHT

2018-02-28 19:49:41 UTC  

My sister competes in oly lifting

2018-02-28 19:49:47 UTC  

yeah and oly lifers have mad aesthetic quads

2018-02-28 19:50:00 UTC  

low bar is more hamstrings
