You couldve been having an off day.
I notice when i dont get enough sleep and my nutrition sucks that day my squats feel insanely heavy.
When i get 7-8 hours sleep and i eat good throughout the day(i eat a shit load on squat days) the bar seems to be like a feather.
This had happened to me before with wendler 531. I was stressed that day didnt get alot of sleep and i only ate twice. I was suppose to hit 405x3. I unracked the bitch and i went down and came back up second rep i got pinned to the rails. Is it frustrating hell yeah. But i finished my assistance. Came back the next week and tried it again i ended up getting it for 4 reps.
You also gotta figure smolov is a very hard program to complete.
Id reccomend trying again and if you are still stuck at 2 then move on. Its not like you are gonna fail the program or get weaker. Its actually pretty normal for people to miss a rep here or there on smolov. Get some rest eat your ass off on squat day and kill it! Good luck man![/quote]
Come to think of it my sleep has been pretty bad recently, been eating 3,400 calories per day though. thanks for the positive feedback man, i’ll give it a go, but if I fail again do you guys think I should lower my training max by 10-20lbs?[/quote]
Im not sure of what your goals are or your weight. But if i was running smolov i would be eating 4500-5000 cals a day. With all the heavy squatting most likely you arent going to gain any fat anyway. Thats just personal opinion though. Train Hard Stay Smart God bless us all for life and injury free training.
Well, I want a nice beach body that’s all. lol just messing. I, just want to get strong, I don’t plan on competing, because I don’t a powerlifting build(small joints, fast metabolism). I know I should eat more, it’s hard to get food when you’re a broke college student. Raman noodles is basically all I have lol. Any recommendations on caloric dense foods that are cheap?
