The 4 sets of 9 were the worst for me.
I did the whole thing but its been a little while. Gonna have to go back and look, but from what I remember…
Foam roll, a lot. Make sure you warm up properly. I did a lot of leg swings, shoulder warmups, took my time with lighter weights, etc. All I did was warm up and squat on those days. I believe I did something of an upper day on 1 of the off days. Just trying to maintain really. Eat. Sleep.
I got 50lbs out of the entire cycle. 465 to 515[/quote]
465…to 515. See, that’s the kind of stuff that will help me get through this. I’m at 425 right now. Thinking about getting 500…
If I could get 50 pounds, that would be great.
How did your other lifts go? I feel like I’m going to lose some on bench. I really have to work with it to keep it up and I don’t think I can bench at the level I need to and smolov.[/quote]
As I said in another thread, I got about 80 lbs on my deadlift on it using the intese phase. It was miserable. But awesome.
Best advice I have for you is foam roll before and after, and stretch after you foam roll. If you miss a day of hip, knee and ankle mobilization or soft tissue work, it WILL catch up with you in big way eventually. This will really help keep some of the aches away.
