Chucks or oly shoes. I like both. Easier to sit back with a flat foot for me, but more power from the oly shoes once I got comfy. The Rom IIs are nice, a friend just got them. I like the PL 2.0s I got, you could spring for them for around 90 bucks to give an oly shoe a try. Also you have the Adipowers to look at as well. And do-wins

Yeah, that's my best bet. I'll check some more out. It's hard to find a decent pair under 130, lol.Originally Posted by Sean1332

90 bucks sounds good, ha!Originally Posted by CountryLiftin
Yeah, I saw a review comparing the adipowers and romaleos and the guy sounded like he preferred the romaleos. The price is basically the same and I like the look of the romaleos better, so that's why I was leaning towards them.
I'll just get a cheap pair and see how it goes. No sense in buying a $200 pair of oly shoes if you've never tried them.

I have the PL 2.0s and like them a lot. I think it really comes down to personal preference for the shoes and the build etc which one you like the best. Anything will probably be better than what you have now.

Straight from nike frees to adipowers checking in.
I don't plan to buy new shoes again until new models come out way down the road...my shoes feel like heaven now.
Don't miss out on the next deal:http://pescience.com/insider

I like my Pendlay Do-Wins. Less aggressive heel than most Oly shoes, sturdy, and they lend themselves to my quad squatting.

Smolov: Week 3- Day 4
Squats: 10 sets of 3- 345
Today was the most challenging squat day of my life. From set 1 to set 10 it took everything I had physically and mentally to do the reps. I'd say it was harder than the 50 rep set of oly squats.
Much of this is due to the fact I squatted heavy yesterday as well. My legs weren't sore, but felt very heavy.
Overall, Smolov Jr is the ****. I'm sad it's over because I've come to love squats. But, I must remember: it's not goodbye to Smolov, it's see you later.

Went to a buffet right after:
5 medium sized pieces of steak, 1 huge cut of roast beef, 1 piece of meatloaf, 2 hefty servings of mashed potatoes, 1 roll, Mac and cheese, nachos and cheese and a piece of blueberry pie.
I think I could hibernate for 20 hours.

Thanks, this is a big moment in my life. This moment stands directly between being born and receiving a college scholarship.Originally Posted by napalm

Felt blah on these. My CNS is still probably taxed.
Lilly press 5":
Triceps have poor work capacity. I'll be addressing this shortly.
Grip work AKA shrugs: 135x25x3
Tate press (rest pause): 25/12/10- 35's
All I had time for. I owe myself a lot of back work tmrw. Prolly throw in some curls for the cougs and what not.

Nah, I just did them cpt Kirk style for the grip work mostly.Originally Posted by smoker145
Eh, I'm a lot stronger than 275x3.

"Deload".Originally Posted by smoker145
I'm maxing out my squat Thursday or Friday. Going for a big PR, then another mini deload and back to Westside. I've got a solid plan set forth, I'm going to get stronger in every aspect.
Would it be wise to try to pull a max PR on deadlifts after not doing it for a month? I pulled sumo once during smolov just to show a buddy of mine and I felt STRONG.

Word, I'll play it by ear. I'll know by 455 if I should attempt anything over 525 (PR).Originally Posted by jimbuick
Also Jim, got the formasurge in the mail today. Damn that was quick. I'm going to hop on it when my training resumes to normal. It's probably going to be a week or so. Just a friendly heads up.
01-12-2014, 07:50 PM
Agreed with Jimbo.
And sumo felt strong? or you felt strong in general?
01-12-2014, 07:52 PM
Well, I can't gauge how convo would have felt, but sumo felt very strong.Originally Posted by Sean1332
Funny thing is, when I started DL'ing I pulled sumo exclusively. I've been thinking this past week that sumo would be my strongest position. Going to find out, but damn I love convo for some reason.
