    Sup guys.

    I was selected to do this log a few months back, and certain circumstances arose. After much talking with Boss Man himself he insisted I not drop out and take as much time as needed. So man of my word I kept this in the back of my mind and waited for the opportunity that I thought I could do this justice. The time is now so let's see what gold I've been squatting on for all those weeks!

    PR-XT

    Stats
    200 lbs
    5'10
    19 years old
    at the end of my bulk, so slowing down the calories.

    Maxes
    bench 375
    squat ?? Last I checked was 415 but I've been injured in my lower back for a long time
    deads actually have replaced these with rack pulls as they allow me to keep my back from rounding alot easier. 495 for 2

    Goals
    my main goal is to get my bench up to 405 before I turn 20 in May. Lame little stepping stone I made myself and I am not going to take no for an answer.
    other obvious goals are I want to pack on some mass while leaning up and staying generally the same weight. I like 200 I dont want to have to cut some weight if I dont have to. so thats where PRXT is (hopefully) going to come in and make it all possible. Eager to see composition pics in a month and just let the log do the talking. :P


    Training
    I was thinking about doing another Smolov Jr Program to get my bench up to 405 and have some leniency to maybe add a 5 or a 10 on each side by the time May comes through. (Since the program is only 3-4 weeks)

    I want to do a Smolov Jr incorporated with my standard workouts.

    Here's an example
    week 1
    Smolov 1 + chest
    Smolov 2 + back
    legs
    Smolov 3 + push
    Smolov 4 + pull

    That's kinda what I am looking at to keep wear and tear down, the 3 and 4 days arent chest or back heavy its mainly more about the ancillaries. As you can see I dont have specific arm or shoulder days so these two days are more and less their replacements. Everything else would be typically hypertrophy training. In fact I would most likely use higher volume sets than normal just to compensate for the Smolov taking its toll on the body.

    Like I said I was going to be deciding, I'll know by Monday what the real plan is and yall will be the first to know.



    LETS GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD

    On Training Days: As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules, 3 times daily with meals. Spread out doses evenly throughout the day. For best results, take 2 capsules with breakfast, 2 capsules 30-60 minutes prior to your workout, & 2 capsules immediately after your workout with your post-workout shake or meal.On Non-Training Days: As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules, 3 times daily with meals. Spread out doses evenly throughout the day

    This is the recommended dosing...I am going to try taking 2 before bed to see how this reacts.

    i usually drink a shake before bed, i've tried the 2 caps with it before bed...didn't really notice much difference. in all honesty i think the important part is to get all 6 caps in. but the all 6 at once does have me intriqued!!!!

    Hokay

    First day Smolov Jr

    70% 1RM 6x6 + chest hypertrophy

    Took 6 caps one hour before
    Plus 1.5 scoops Supp-D

    Warm up
    135x12 + 225x8

    Working sets
    260x6
    260x6
    260x6
    Super pumped, I always liked this rep range but this was more than usual
    260x6
    260x6
    260x4+1+1

    Felt weak, weekend of bad choices. No alcohol just barely ate. Down 3 lbs. going to feast

    Incline db
    80x10
    95x6 + 80x3
    80x8

    Hate not hitting my numbers. I'm in a bad mood now.

    Flat flyes (super long stretch)
    30x12
    40x10
    35x10

    Decline hammer strength
    1 pps x12
    2 pps x12
    3 pps x6 + 2 pps x12 + 1 pps x2

    Chest is dead. Post some pictures to give y'all a good idea of composition soon. Nasty pump just let myself down and that's the worst feeling for me.

    The befores

    I've always been a vascular person, when I start leaning down the arms shoulders and chest get ridiculous. For as high of a body fat as I am now the veins are surprising even to me

    Ps look at the guy in the back wtf lol

    With that being said my arms are usually the first things to cut up as well as me obviously wanting to trim those handles

    So this was like an hour after lifting, pump still good. Chest is still a struggle to make grow, I'm getting there.

    Again goals are, stay around the 200 lb range while improving composition. Aiming for maintenance. Somedays it's going to be over some under as long as it balances out over weeks/months I don't really care I just listen to my body.

    I think I'm going to adjust my routine. Smolov Jr was meant to be a M W F S routine but I adjusted it to M T Th F for a longer recovery from the last day of the week to the start of the new week. I had been at my previous plateau for quite some time so I felt perfectly comfortable with that. Seeing how I haven't really plateau'd I am at my current max for less than a week. Not near as comfortable so for the days that total 36 and 35 reps total I think I'd prefer them split apart.

    Idk if this will make me do legs on Tuesday and back on Wednesday to match this but the last time I did Smolov + legs I felt like ****. Cortisol through the roof. I'll try it tomorrow but 280 7x5 seems like a real pain in the cuff. I'll let y'all know
