On this blog I plan to keep track of and show you the training I do in an attempt to reach 600lbs on both the squat and the deadlift. I will be using various training methods and won't be locked into just 5/3/1 as I was for most of the past year (I am finding that a two month run of 5/3/1 followed by a month of Smolov is very effective, but I may change this up in the future, I don't know).
|My squat schedule for the next month.|
Anyway, I'm beginning my run at 600 with a round of Smolov's base mesocycle. I've run Smolov twice before, each time adding 40lbs to my 1-rep squat max and I'm hoping this cycle brings me near 545lbs. On the days I'm not squatting, I'll be doing Smolov Jr. for close grip bench -- I'll talk about that tomorrow. As for my deadlift, I've always been able to pull more weight just as long as my squat strength increases. So, for the time being, I won't be training the deadlift.
