yeah. i want to know how you are structuring your workout, reagrding reps, sets in relation to your max. what your increment is for your workouts.Originally Posted by Blindfaith
HST seems to be very flexible so i am trying to figure out how to structure my workouts.

thanks bro. i start next week, so now i go plan!Originally Posted by Blindfaith
I just started my first week of 10's on HST. I did one week of 15s. Hated the 15s. Anyway, It's too early to tell if it'll work for me or not, but we'll see. I've always gotten my best results with low rep heavy lifting. It'll be interesting to see how this works out for me.
I'm on my 2nd week of 15's. I have no idea how you guys can do more than 1 set. After taking almost 2 weeks off, i almost didn't get to 15 reps.
I'm also used to doing DC's routine, so i have no problems going all out and it still kicked my butt. especially if you're only resting 2 minutes between sets. i went to 3 because i was winded.
I only do 1 set. I just finished my 10's and am now really starting to see results. I can tell my original 15 and 10 RM seem very low now, which is great.
awesome bro. next week i start the 10's. i can't tell yet how well it's working. i have high hopes though. It sure isn't easy...
yeah the 10's feel much better than the 15's for me. I think the 5's will be great mentally, I'm just so used to lifting heavyOriginally Posted by fiddler
absolutely. i'm starting 10's now and they feel much better. i don't mind going heavy but heavy and 15 is really tough.
I'm in the 5's and I actually didn't drop the weight back from the last session of 10's at all...I'm simply keeping some weights the same until it's time to raise them again for the 5's. Basic principle: not lowering the actual weight lifted throughout the cycle, which I understand is OK to do with HST.
how long does it take you guys to perform each session?
i do the whole body at once, so it takes me about 1.5 hours. i can do it in 1 hour but i'm breathless and extremely tired so i decided to add and extra minute or so between exercises.
sounds good jweave. i'm actually just using the basic blueprint that they posted and it seems to be working. my clothes are getting a little tighter and i'm losing a little bit of fat too.
mine takes about 45 minutes, I only do 1 set per bodypart. BTW I am gaining some mass and losing fat as well. I'm only on V12 and an ECY stack, 40/40/20 diet with about 3000 cals.
Jweave just curious as to what exercises you do for your HST workouts?
Don't know his, but here's mine. When I go HST style with this I put on good mass.Originally Posted by Manu20
Bent Over Row
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown
Clean and Press
EZ Bar Curl
Swiss Ball Crunches
Incline DB Bench
Pec Deck Flys
Seated Ham curls
Front military press (Smith)
DB Lat pulls
Thanks Jweave and CDB. CDB I know Jweave said he only does one set of each, how many do you do?
