    Smolov has you doing 136 work squats at a minimum of 70% of your 1rm a week. More then half of those reps are in sets of 9 or 7, that will make you grow fuck loads. Ran it twice, always put loads of size on my legs.

    Edit: fucking hell at erics squat speed. Don't really understand why he psyches himselves up for 550lb squats though when he's maxing at 906lb. I'm not spending a minute prepping for a 200lb single.

    Because the top 50 I listed are the "current" top 50 meaning they're lifts from the last 12 months.

    The #100 is off the list for the top lifters since 2007.

    I did it to give you a reference of where to 50th person stood in a slightly larger picture.



    Looks great on you man!



    Yes.

    Personally like RDL over GHR or goodmornings...easiest to get form right, and can go heavy for 5 reps.

    Felt like a boss on medicine rotation when I recommended we give some bronkaid to congested patient and it worked like a charm. Might help them lose weight too.

    Inb4 they have heart attack :-/

    Was supposed to pause bench 325x2x5 yesterday.

    Misloaded my first working set by accident and put on 335 instead of 325.

    Was disappointed for a split second until I realized that I just tripled my 1RM from exactly 11 weeks ago. :slayer:

    Going for 330x2x5 next week! I won't misload this time haha

    being at a new job ive been working longer hours and neglecting the gym, a shitty contrast to the couple weeks off where I was in the gym daily at off peak hours. Thanks, guys for the inspo to get back in there during the week.
