Hopefully some of you can offer me some guidance, as I am a bit confused by my results below.
I gave myself a week to recover from smolov base meso/smolov jr for bench run concurrently. I still trained, but no squats/DLs.
Anyway, I went to the gym to set some PRs;
Squat: Added 5kg --> 200kg, almost made it out of the hole, then missed.
Bench: Added 10kg --> 190kg, FLEW UP.
Deadlift (just to see): Added 10kg --> 285kg, got it to knee level, then missed it.
Am I simply being too greedy with my added weight? I am confused that my bench did very well but my squat has barely moved. Perhaps I need a different approach for the squat?
One thing the base meso has done is made me a LOT stronger in the 3-5 rep range on squats, but as you can see it hasn’t done much for my single effort.
I gained around 4-5lbs over the 3-4 week period when I was running smolov/smolov jr.
Thanks in advance,
