I'm not very familiar with the program, but I'm pretty sure the set-rep scheme only applies to the main compound exercises. I don't see why a a program (or any program for that matter) would make you do 5x5 on tricep extensions or barbell curls.

Going to take 2 weeks off from squatting then start smolov with a max of 315 because that's honestly how much I can max out right now.

I followed red_sir's advice and started with 25 lbs less then my actual max, and to be honest, I'm glad I did..

And son, I know you're strong as hell (stronger than me), but I was lifting heavy before you knew where the gym was.



But I stand by my statement tho. If you're doing 10 sets with 6+ minutes between each set, you're spending over an hour 'resting' aka hogging the squat rack not even squatting.
Yes, I can use the squat rack for over an hour. Sometimes even more if I OHP after. If that bothers you then may I politely direct your attention to the TWO other empty squat racks beside the one I am currently occupying?
I specifically switched gyms for this reason. My old gym was a busy community centre with one squat rack. I moved to a quiet gym with three racks even though it's 20 mins farther from my place. I cannot remember the last time I've seen people squat in all three racks simultaneously. If that still doesn't work for you, I will gladly move to one of the empty racks so you can curl in this one.

Also, I "knew where the gym was" when I signed up at 15. That was almost 16 years ago. I was not nearly as strong back then as I am now, mainly because there was no internet back then to learn from. Everything I learned, I learned from magazines and "bros" in the gym. I still managed to rep 245 on bench when I was around 20. I stopped lifting for most of my 20's. Those years were dedicated to other athletic interests like jiu-jitsu and running. So yes, you may have been lifting longer than me recently but I assure you, you have not been lifting heavy before I "knew where the gym was."

I thought you were squatting almost 4 plate? Is it because you switched to highbar?

attempted my max squat tonight. Got to 405 pretty good depth. Very happy the 5/3/1 program is working for me. Weighed in tonight at 159 lb.

It looks like the cold tub just delayed DOMS till today, which happens to be the second day of Smolov (week 1). 3 of the 7 sets were full of agony and pain. Everything cracked/popped as I was going down, hamstrings, hips, lower-back. Great fun! Was only able to put in 1 upper body pull exercise (seated row) and called it a day. But, besides my bitching and complaining, I feel so good after the workout is done! Really feels like I am accomplishing something, lol.

Crap. I had two spreadsheets, one for Smolov Jr and one for Smolov base mesocycle. I mixed them up. You think I should continue with JR or switch to regular starting day 3 (this Friday)?

if you didn't have trouble completing today's workout i think you can do smolov base, you still got the 35 total reps required. both work outs were based on 75%

I've been meaning to get fit and lift. The good news is that my school (Douglas College, New Westminster campus) offers a free gym to all full time students. However it doesn't have a power rack. My program of choice will be Starting Strength (I started reading it today, taking detailed notes), so the way I see it, I have three options:

1. Do runs at New West (T/Th/Sa) and lift at David Lam (M/W/F), which has a rack. This is my preferred choice if at all possible. Also it's close to downtown Coquitlam so lots of shopping and entertainment options post workout. However if the gym at DLC is only available to students who register for courses at DLC then that option goes out the window.

2. Pick an exercise program that doesn't use barbell squats, or barbells at all. (Eg dumbbell only programs, or bodyweight programs like You Are Your Own Gym). This is my next best choice until I scrounge up enough money for a gym membership.

3. A commercial gym (Fitness World, Goodlife, Fitness 2000, Gold's Gym). Hopefully a last resort.

What do you all think? I think the most important thing is that I pick a gym, pick a program, and make it routine. I can worry about the rest later.

When it comes to supplements...when I worked out at Eileen Daily pool (don't recommend), I wojld get a half litre of chocolate milk is (after lifts and runs). Assuming I have it 6x a week at $1.25 per, that's $7.50 a week or about $34 a month. Some inexpensive whey and casein would be nice. Other than buying from bb.com and shipping to Point Roberts, what can I do to supplement on a budget? Or can I just stick with protein rich meals and chocolate milk?

If I broke some kind of rule in this post, I'm sorry. I admit I didn't search the thread before I posted.

well #2 isnt really an option at all, theres a reason every athlete on the planet lifts barbells with weights

and yes you dont really need whey or casein, you can stick with meals and choco milk

I would say you're restricting yourself too much by choosing a gym without barbells. Even if you aren't going onto a program that uses them right away, you'll wish your gym had them eventually.


Anyways, after slacking all Jan and not being able to pull anything past 315 I got in some 355 deadlifts the other night.
