    Question Anyone gained 15-30 lbs on bench with Smolov Jr?

    3 weeks, 15-30 lb gains with high volume 4x/week benching sounds unreal

    OFC it's a Russian routine, and those East Euros and Russians always come up with new stuff

    It's been around for quite a few years actually.

    Anyhow, I've heard positive reviews from the people I've seen try it.

    My bench is pretty small anyway so was not expecting much out of Smolov jr. Started with a hit or miss 140 bench, and ended with a solid easy 150 with a pause, got 155 but butt left the bench a bit. Was surprised it worked so well with me and my pathetic bench, I can see how people with real bench numbers could get 30 pounds out of this. I don't think I lost too much off my bench after I finished the program, but for me, aside from being a peaking program, the constant benching gave me the practice needed to break some bad habits and instill some changes. I love it, would/ will do it again, and would recommend it.

    theyre always coming out with these new sheiko/westside/smolov type routines i cant keep up.
    i heard mark bell and kk got together and formed a multi raw bench routine because they both got tired of deadsquating but they couldnt do the math right so donnie thompson and gerald ford came up with smolov based off of it. i heard if you dont squat the routine makes your bench go up 50 pounds

    Yeah, gonna get at least a 205 bench by end of 2012, then might run another cycle to 235-250, then run this routine to 250-275; then either Sheiko or 5x5 to 270-300 and should bench 300 raw at 5'8" ~200 in my senior year of high school

    I have run the complete cycle twice. Added 40lbs to starting 1 rep max both times, 365 to 405, then 385 to 425. I just finished a third, but I cut out the last two days as I felt I needed to rest for my competition. I still got a 25lb increase out of it, at the competition. 405 to 430.

    It is my opinion that Smolov Jr for bench has been very good for me. But, I do find with a peaking program you do lose strength, hence why each time I ran it I started with 20lbs less than what I maxed at.

    I had great experience with both Smolov and Smolov Jr.
    they work like a charm for me...

    every time I do them I gain 44 lbs (20 kg) for Smolov (I just do the base cycle) and 22 lbs (10 kg) for Smolov Jr.

    because of that I started doing Smolov Jr. as a pre-competition prep
    I would start doing it 4 weeks before a comp. and then just test my new PR there...


    just be sure to do some rear shoulder work after each bench session (I prefer face pulls)
    best raw lifts (in competition):

    squat 350 (772 lbs) - belt and wraps
    bench 210 kg (462 lbs)
    deadlift 320 kg (705 lbs) - belt
