Sure, def can't do it at the drop of the hat cold though. I found a 15 min stretch routine that Greg Everett posted, said he was able to do the splits doing this. Did it twice a day for three weeks and low and behold on a day that I had no leg doms and was feeling really warmed up and nimble I did it. Also cleared up my quad problems I was having.

Just tried 1RM's after finishing my smolov jr cycle last monday.
Added about 10-15 kg to my (weak) HB squat which is now nearly the same weight as my LB SQ was when I made the switch to HB last summer.
A lot of improvement on the bench as well though its hard to say how much as I was recovering from a shoulder injury during the cycle. Had hardly benched at all the month before I started the cycle tbh. Bench now a little stronger than it was pre-injury, so thats good.
Also lifted a DL PR (+5kg) even though I kinda neglected the DL during smolov cycle. http://youtu.be/9jzqDBLDRms
I'm a happy man now and am currently stuffing my face with al teh bad foodz smile.gif

Please post. I need some of my high school flexibility back for goaltending.

Sometimes I want to reach through the screen and punch people. Someone just gave advice to cut to 6-9% before trying to gain strength because "Its way easier to build muscle and become more athletic when you have a low body fat."

What's wrong with that

Sounds like fat shaming to me. Way to take a stand.

Good job! Why no belt on 1 rep max?

We were discussing untrained people, who would probably look something like this if they cut to 6% without trying to get stronger:

(I'm not saying someone untrained and fat should try to bulk/gain mass, just try to gain strength/recomp, which would preserve LBM)

I think it's just Crossfit idiocy.

That dude in the spoiler is gonna die. Also I don't think he is 6%

6% is like stage worthy with muscle. Without it, it's decomposing.
