Ughhhh, , you're right. I didn't want to here anything, lol.
I know you have done a lot more reading than me and have way more experience, I really do respect and appreciate your advice. Everyone on this board knows your da man when it comes to the knowlede of the game, especially involving squats. But, I've been wanting to do this for soooo long, I can't back down now that I've already started. Some reasons being that I really want to see the results of this first hand and I want to test my physciological toughness by finishing this thing out. Another reason, pretty immature, is that I've seen what it does and now I have to do it. Kind of like when the moron kid sees a shiny new car and just buys it without test driving and stuff. I respect your advice though.
Also, the actual Smolov routine calls for a 3 week loading phase (wich you approve of) and then taking two weeks rest. After that is the four week monster (which you said was maximum). Right?
Is overtraining the only thing to worry about? I'm not worried about that, if it happens it happens. I'll take a step back and regroup and start where I left off. I honestly don't think it will be a problem. For example - after me reading up on a lot of other people's experience with Smolov, they say they quit after the first day because "it was to hard" or "they couldn't walk right afterwards". Well after my session I've been practicing pistols all day (for that competion you made) and my legs are still fine
Well that's it. Thanks for dropping by man , and thanks for the advice. I'll definately do the modified routine if I ever want to try it again.
