The Smolov program has been growing in popularity over the past few years, but it looks like the most recent spike in attention comes from the crossfit crowd. A recent post on the outlaw way blog – a popular source for crossfit programming – espouses the benefits of the squatting program, referring to is as “the world’s most feared squatting program.”
Those that follow Rudy’s program posted their results from Smolov Jr in the comments on this post. It looks like the crowd was very happy with their improvements. There were a few folks that got crazy increases, but as a whole it looks like the group averaged about 10% improvement. Great to see the Smolov gospel spreading!
