    Default Setting Vomit PR's with Smolov!

    I figured I'd post my Smolov stuff over here, too. Here's Week 1 - Day 1.

    Adam's Workout - 8/20/07

    Squats:
    277 x 9
    277 x 9
    277 x 9
    277 x 9

    Bent-Over Toilet Pukes:
    Puke x 1
    Puke x 1
    Puke x 1
    Puke x 1 (Rep PR)


    Thoughts: What have I gotten myself into? This was so freaking hard. I finished up my squats and was resting to do some face pulls. After about 3 minutes of sitting down I had to run to the bathroom where I threw up 4 times. I'll be using the Smolov Jr. moving forward. It's basically the same program, but the reps are broken up a little on the Mon/Wed/Fri workouts. Same number of total reps, though.

    Wow. Don't push the vomit volume too high or you'll overtrain.

    A real man would have continued training.

    Just saying.

    Just remember, strength = size.

    Adam's Workout - 8/22/07

    Squats:
    296 x 5
    296 x 5
    296 x 5
    296 x 5
    296 x 5
    296 x 5
    296 x 5

    Face Pulls:
    57.5 x 8
    57.5 x 8
    57.5 x 8

    Reverse Flyes on Pec Deck:
    100 (lol) x 8
    100 x 8
    100 x 8

    Thoughts: Today wasn't nearly as hard as Monday was. I didn't even feel like throwing up. I'm not sure if this was because I'm doing the Smolov Jr, but in all honesty, 7x5 doesn't seem that much different from 5x7. We'll see how I feel next week +20lbs. Since I didn't feel too bad, I went ahead and did some light accessory work. I think it's hilarious that I was doing reverse flyes with "100lbs". Silly machine weights. If I feel okay after Friday's workout I may do some light benching.

    All I can say is it doesn't look quite as bad as the GVT that Il Leone was doing for a while. Kind of like saying "sorry that you lost a leg, but isn't it great that it didn't kill you".

    Yowza. Is this a new form of assisted suicide?

    I think my legs would give out about 1/4th of the way through that. Gotta love the puking though, that's hardcore.

    Your squatting looks strong. May the force be with you.
