    Default Smolov Squat Cycle used for bench increase?

    Im going to jump on the Smolov Squat Cycle to increase my squat. Did some reading up on it and it seems VERY solid. Also found a handy calculator to make the work easier

    Now my question is, could I use this for upping my bench as well?

    I really wan to focus on my squat and bench right now, then hit my deads really hard.

    i dont like pre-determined programs. I have never in my life followed one, except when forced to in HS for athletics (and I was young/didnt know much about training).

    The reviews seem to say it will bring your squat up drastically, but is taxing on the NS/joints and more than likely all other movements will suffer.

    What kind of periodization have you been following previously? do you know your stickin gpoints and do you perform any major assistance work for said movements you wish to improve?

    Check my log for my exact routine
    I tweak it as I go for weaknesses/strengths and my accesory work changes here and there
    It's been workin great for me thus far
