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.

If you work it, It works!

Jake Gillam

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.

We recently pushed an update out that should resolve this issue. Thank you for notify us.

It was Great. What happened??


App was great. It got my 1 rep max up by 70 Lbs in a month. But then it got “updated” and now the calculations are off and it leaves all the sets i have to do at the same weight! Really frustrating. Other friends with this app had the same issue

Developer Response

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Can you provide a little more information on the calculations that are "off" We tripled checked them before releasing the update, so it *should* be good to go. Definitely want to fix any mistakes though. One thing to be aware of in the update is that we no longer list sets and reps but have a new line for each set, so it may look like the weights are all the same, but the idea is to make it easier to track while you're lifting. Instead of waiting to complete all your sets before checking the box, now you can check the box after each set. But if there is a problem, please let me know and we'll get right on it.
