    Default Smolov for Deadlifts?

    I've read an article by Pavel on another website re: Smolov for squats and I've only read posts on this site regarding Smolov squats, but can this routine also be applied to deadlifts?

    Also, is this covered in BB? It is one of the few Pavel books that I don't own, but I'm thinking of buying it.

    Useing smolov with deadlifts would depend on your recoverablity and/or frequency.
    I don't think most people would be able to handle the volume and recover from workout to workout with out burning out.
    The PTTP protocals are a good way to go IMO.

    The 'Russian deadlift program' was originally the Russian squat routine; it is not a Smolov-designed program, but rather a program designed by Zenalov (IIRC) for Oly lifters to develop their squat.

    There is a Smolov deadlift-specific routine. I have a spreadsheet of it; if you're interested, lemme know.

    I am very interested in seeing and using this spreadsheet elrodjr, smolov has worked wonders for my squat and bench and was just going to adapt it myself but am interested to get an outside opinion.

    Com. Imrahil56, Smolov designed a plan specifically for the DL. See PTP Professional.
