Who was Smolov? Is he real
« on: April 25, 2018, 04:42:29 AM »
Does anyone on this forum know the backstory of smolov? Who is he? Who did he coach? Who did he use his 13 week cycle for? Is he even real? I’m new here, and was hoping some people knew some of these answers. I think the whole situation is pretty interesting. Thanks for all responses!

I can only answer some of your questions. He appears to be a real person, Sergei Y. Smolov, and he has a few articles in Russian floating around on the internet, and has also published in print journals. I couldn't find any biographical information about him searching on the internet in Russian. I've never seen good translations of his articles in English; maybe sometime when I get bored I'll translate something and post it to this forum. Did you know, in addition to his famous squat routine, he also has a deadlift program?

The squat program is intended for advanced lifters.

Go ahead and post that when you have time. I'm sure it'll generate some interest.
