Smolov Jr bench HELP15462

4real private msg quote post Address this user
I was wondering, what your experience with smolov is? Was it worth the time and how much did your bench improve; am i better off on another program?

Looking at the program, it concerns me that for 4 weeks you don't squat or deadlift. Will my squat/deads suffer as a result of 1 cycle?

I was looking around and smolov is appealing for me as my benchpress is appalling

Tried smolov once. Got horrible tendinitis in my elbow. Not recommended.

Nothing wrong with benching 2x per week but Smolov is too much imo

Smolov was originally invented to get your squat (or being) max up a lot in a very small amount of time. Unless you NEED to do this, I wouldn't recommend it. And like WNQ said, it's too advanced.
