No more fiddling with spreadsheets and print outs at the gym. This app calculates the weights you should use, based on your one rep max, for the 3-week Smolov Jr. and 13-week Full Smolov Squat protocols. The app also makes it easy to keep track of where you are in the cycle.
This Russian squat cycle has also been used by many for other lifts such as the bench press, shoulder press and deadlift with big jumps in strength. Smolov isn't for new lifters, but if you have some experience under your belt (like with 5/3/1, starting strength, 20 squat, etc.), then this may be a great lifting protocol for you.
Bug fixes and crashes fixed.

Great app for strength building
I have used this program for the last 2-3 years and it has been the simplest and most personalized program I’ve been on. (That’s free) My one thing I’d like to see is for it to be broken down into body parts. i.e. arms, legs, etc. it gets a little lengthy for me and the organization it currently has gets a little rough. Thank you again for a great program! I tell everyone I work with and see in the gym about it!
If you work it, It works!
This app got me up to 285 lbs. bench by simply following what it recommended I workout with based solely from my max. I'm 50, & this crazy app got me up to a one rep max of 285 lbs.
I would be at 315 by now had I not quit. This app works great but you have to be patient & let your muscles recover!
Solid simple app, 50# gain in one cycle
I have been using the app for Smolov Sr, after the retest week when checking the box for completing a lift if the app is closed and reopened the weights change. If the box is subsequently unchecked, app closed and reopened the weights revert back to original. Have sent an email into support not sure if this is a known issue.
