real men squat, warriors do smolov! In my opinion it is the holy grail of squat specialization programs!
I've done it twice, and added 27.5kg on my max the first time, and 30kg the second time. anymore gain than that and i will be very suprised. but i guess it is possible. it certainly is bloody hard, esp the base mesocycle at the end, and the intense mesocycle also in the end. the body becomes very tired, and not every workout is very fun. but if you put your heart and soul into it you will make it.
you state you have felt no soreness, and also it seems like you think smolov is maybe not so brutal. well comrade, let's see in 11 weeks.
doing is believing!
if you complete it, which i am sure you will - you shall be very proud.
it brought me to a 550 squat this year @ bw 204, and i plan to do it at least once, maybe twice next year.
feel free to msg me if you have any questions about smolov.
Google smolov for more info
try the search feature. also check Dragon Door
first time i did the smolov routine i nearly died, and the second time was brutal as well. i wish you all best of luck, as you need it.
eat like a horse in base meso, and you gain at least 20lbs on your max already there!
i am excited to follow your progress. you could make a thread on t-mag so we could follow your progress. along with pics and vids would be extremely nice!
best of luck!
