    smolov it!

    so..this is the first REAL training i've done since i started powerlifting in 2011. and it was quite impromptu. sat 12/8 i came to the gym not sure what squat routine i was going to do. so...i jumped in with my one teammate and did his smolov day 1. needless to say...i loved it....and i loved it even more so because i finally changed my squat stance to something i think i am FINALLY going to feel strong with... tuesday- i did my second day. it was a little rough at first, but it went relatively smooth.
    week 1:
    day 1/2- 3x8 180, 5x195, 2x2 210, 1x220

    day 3 (which will be tomorrow)- 4x5 195, 3x210, 2x2 220, 1x250
    ^this im looking forward too.

    i'm excited to see what kind of results i am going to see by the time this training cycle is over. i have nothing but high expectations for myself and i'm determined to see them through....

    now let's get to liftin'

    Nikita is going to be one of the best female lifters ever if she sticks to it and keeps getting better. One to watch 4 sure. We're proud to have her as a member of Jersey Iron.

    Welcome to the board (again) Nikita! Nikita is ANOTHER Jersey Iron lifter we're bringing on board! She's got some crazy numbers, crazy strength, and way more to come. It's nice to have a female in the Powerlifting Logs as well!

    Great to see you FINALLY got a log going online. Its going to be a battle through smolov, but glad you are doing it also (though random that you decided to start up) it can only help both of us.

    week 1/ day 3: 4x5 195, 3x210, 2x2 220, 1x250.

    i'll be honest...the 250 seemed intimidating. but all in all- it went smoothly. i just gotta keep working on my form..keeping my chest and head up.

    and dare i say it? i ran on the treadmill BEFORE squatting. yea yea yea...i get some grief about this...but i feel like this helps get me fired up to squat...eh, to each his/her own, yeah?

    saturday 12/5. week 2/day 1: 1x5 @ 220. needless to say that was a simple day. all i think about is how next week will probably kick my behind...but it WILL be worth it.

    other than squatting...i decided to have some fun and put a deadlift suit on (although it was a little bit big..). i haven't done a sumo deadlift in forever...but in this gear i ended up pulling 405x1. i surprised myself! and that was a pretty big pr for my sumo..even though it was in gear and it was my FIRST time EVER in gear..so very interesting and all in all..a good day

    FYI you did 225. I didn't feel like putting the 2.5 on to make it 220. Good job with the gear. This week is easy but remember next week will be crazy.

    week 3/day 1: 4x9 @ 195. went well. my form has never been better. it was great getting to start this week off with dave and tone. i'll admit i was a bit nervous about how it was gonna go...and it went so much better than expected.

    other than that..did some core work and cardio.

    and with that......happy festivus all! hahaaa

    week 3/ day 2: 5x7@210. i'll be honest...even though i went through it kind of fast with dave, it was brutal. definitely not a fan of this day....i know i'll be feeling it tomorrow. all in all, it went well....got depth and i feel like my legs are getting stronger everyday, so that's a good feeling

    merry christmas to all

    yeah man!! if the gym is open why not?! that's my attitude haha...thanks mac!

    week 3/day 3: 7x5@220
    i'll be honest...the first set i was a bit all over the place (albeit i havent gotten much sleep this week and i was a bit exhausted today) but i got my act together for sets 2-7. i still can't believe the difference in my form..after making those few adjustments after the meet i did dec 1st...blows my mind!
    did a few accessories, CORE work (loves ittt!) and cardio.

    bring on saturday!
