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.

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.

Depends on the exercise. No less than two of any. When I do HST I progress the sets as such: one of each for the 15s, two for the tens, three to four for the 5s. Right now I'm basically just doing standard strength training, I average 3 sets per exercise.Originally Posted by Manu20

BTW I should add I'm in the 3rd week of 5's now (not doing neg's) and I am lifting as much or more than I did at peak on my last cycle...but I'm clean right now
08-18-2004, 02:01 PM
After the 3 week of 5's what are you going to do...another week or go back to 15's?Originally Posted by jweave23

I think I am going to structure mine similar to this for my first cycle of HST and see how it goes or if I should add another set to the 15's and 10's.Originally Posted by jweave23

No problem. Always glad to help. Ever since I found out about HST I've been telling people about it. It's a nice method.Originally Posted by Manu20

It looks like a solid method and I'm getting pumped about trying it out. I need a change and routine and this looks like its what I'm looking for.Originally Posted by CDB

one least week of 5's (4 weeks total of 5's), then SD for 9 days. After that it's time for my next cycle, so I'll be doing a lengthened version, something like 15,12,10,10,10,10,8,8,5,5,5,5. That will get me through an 8 week cycle + post cycle without letting the weight go down, just the volume Then SD again.Originally Posted by Manu20

I'd recommend a longer SD. Just from personal experience. An injury forced me to quit for three weeks, Now I'm lifting again and my EZ bar curl has gone up ten pounds already and I've seen a noticable increase in hardness and size in the muscle. I've only been lifting for two weeks and I'm not even doing an HST cycle this time, just SST.Originally Posted by jweave23
