Share your smolov stories with me. I don't know anyone else that does it or has.

>tldr; doing smolov, or at least squatting all the time has made me only want to squat and every other lift for the most part is a joke. Anyone else?

Pic related. Vaguely. Actually zeppelin is always related

I just got off Smolov 2 weeks ago. It was brutal, but I needed it. My deadlift was 550 and my squat was 390, so I needed to push it up. Hit a 435 PR on squat and a 315 PR on bench. Kept all my bench strength, but I went in and worked up to a 1 rep today on squat and only hit 415. Not bad though.

Good for you.. that's rad. My squat stalled hard at 370 lbs. I couldn't hit that elustrious 4 plate that I wanted so badly so some thing had to change. I'm hoping smolov will get me there. My bench max is at 315 and it bothered me that me squat wasn't higher. Also, I don't wear knee sleeves or a belt, did you? And how mush do they help? Like will it add a rep or two?

I train beltless because I have an obsession with Russian lifters. Knee sleeves helped me land an additional 1 rep.

Yeah. 4 plates took forever. Definitely needed a hard bulk to get me there.

If I wanted humor, Id ask what your one rep maxes are

Happened to me too. Back in 2013 I started Smolov since my squat had stalled at a measly 160kg and I DL'd about 210. Then begun the smolov, and after a few weeks, only squatting made sense to me. I benched a few threes every now and then to keep the touch, but after a few months my bench had dropped 10kg, squatted 210 and even without doing any DL during that period I managed 242,5 in an IPF comp. During smolov I only though of improving squat and nothing else mattered.

Oh ok.

I would try it if I was going for strength.

It seems brutal too.
