Building the Body

Was nice to have a rest day yesterday. I got a massage that made me exhausted the rest of the day. I did manage to get in 5 bottom squats holds of 6:00 for my half hour on the day even though I debated resting from them too. Excited to finish out week 1 of Smolov programming.

Out in the garage just after 10 and started with CS Activation.

Warm-up

3 Rounds

  • 50 DU
  • 1:00 Squat Hold

Back Squats

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×205#
  • 3×235#
  • 3×265#
  • 10x3x290#

I rested about 2:30 between the 10 sets and it wasn’t really that bad. I was expecting much worse. Did a 5:00 squat hold right after. Up 10# for the next week of Smolov lifts.
