I'm looking at running a full Smolov cycle, the 13 week one, and I'm just wondering what else I should do with it in terms of benching and back work?
I was thinking for the base mesocycle:
Day 1 - Squat as planned
Day 2 - 3x5 Bench Press, 3x5 Overhead Press (not pushing it), some chins, flyes, lat raises
Day 3 - Squat as planned
Day 4 - Rest
Day 5 - Squat as planned
Day 6 - Squat as planned
Day 7 - Rest
I was thinking for Day 2:
3x5 Overhead Press (both of these superset with bodyweight chins of 10 reps)
3x10 lat raises
3x10 rear delt flyes
I want to be sure my upper body lifts dont go anywhere.
On another note, my deadlift is my strongest lift at 250kg as opposed to a 170kg squat... I like deadlifting so is there going to be any harm to doing a few light sets of 3 on Day 4?
Opinions much appreciated guys!
