God, I so want to do this, but at the same time I know I would hate life.

I do well with the 5's and triples, but the 9's and 7's make me want to kill myself...soul-crushing is an understatement

It's really not *that* bad. I've been terrible about getting enough sleep (6-7 hrs a night since starting) and am not eating a ton, but I haven't had any DOMS or days where I felt like I just couldn't WIM the weight up. I just feel tired most of the time. Also I now get sore in the middle of workouts.

Yeah I was pretty psyched to finally get to start it. But if my 1rm isn't up at least 20 lbs I'm going to be disappointed. Although my quads are 1.5 inches bigger than before starting, so I guess that's pretty cool.

The 9s make me want to quit after the 2nd set. Both times I've had a discussion with myself after the third set about whether or not I really need to do a fourth. But then I remind myself that the weight is just so ****ing light and that I'm not going to let it win. I might need a ton of stimulants to get through 320x3x10 though; that really feels like the upper limit of what I could do right now.

Thanks for convincing me never to do this. I've already ripped a pair of jeans and shorts this summer. Don't want to buy all new clothes.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

ugh - that's a fair point, especially because i just got custom fitted for a few suits. they had to give me size 38 pants to fit my legs and then draw the waist in to a 32.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

That's crazy. My quads are only 24 inches, which I'm sure is still relatively small. I'm not in the made to measure pants realm just yet.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

Yea, I was in full made-to-measure, which kinda sucked. The entire process was about 100x more difficult than it should've been.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

Somehow I still need 30's for waist which is probably my biggest problem. All but a few 32s typically fall off of me.

I wore 30's when I was 140 pounds and am still wearing them when I'm 170+.... Quads are a little bit bigger.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

7-8

C2 Row- 3x 200m repeats- all under 36 seconds (1:30/500 pace)
Bench- 45x10x2, 135x5, 155x3, 175x2, 195x1, 205x2 (paused), 210x2 (paused), 185x5 (slow)

Had planned to bench more but my biceps tendon was bothering me. I've probably been taking too much weight in my arms when I squat. Lots of SMR this weekend.

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

Just thought I'd share that I have absolutely 0 desire to go to the gym this week. Had a super stressful and sleep depriving weekend so I didn't lift yesterday, but after a good night's sleep last night I'm out of excuses. Hopefully writing this down will help to keep me from adding unnecessary rest days or coming up with excuses:

290x7x5 tonight
305x5x7 Thursday (possibly Wednesday if I somehow feel good)
320x3x10 Friday

Re: Doug's Smolov Log

how much rest are you typically taking between the triples?
