    New to HST Question.

    It would look like the way you have it.... but lets say that week 2 comes around and 80 lbs felt really could say hell with it ill do 100 on monday instead of 90 and if the 100 still felt light you could do 110 on wed and wind up doin 120 on friday.... See how your maxes change? Joe G

    New to HST

    You dont want to simply target chest and want a complete full body routine. As long as you have the bench press in that routine your chest and tris will take care of themselves. If you want to add extra emphasis do dips as well. Joe G

    New to HST Question.

    Well as you go your rep maxes will change because your increasing your strength.... HST is definitely good for strength gain. I made much better strength gains from HST than I did from any High Volume or HIT routines. So as you progress in your minicycles just keep adding weight to the bar if...

    What to do if you reach failure on set?

    I would cluster the "miscalculated" weight so you get the reps you want in the block. By cluster (if you dont already know) I mean put the weight back before failure take a 45 second break and do it again until you reach the desired rep scheme. Lowering the weight might not help...

    I actually disagree that the lack of "pictures" on HST are detrimental. I find that testimonials don't mean much at all. If you read any of Mike Mentzer's books he talks about guys who put on 50 lbs in 2 weeks and uses them as "results". In the age of steroid use that we are...

    Stretch Marks

    I think your best bet is to do what you have already done, that is get the cream for strech marks, those creams are specifically designed for women to put on their stomachs during and after they give birth. As for your marks getting worse after a workout I dont think they actually get worse I...

    California Barbell

    My buddy was telling me the other day he was doing presses with the California barbell. I looked at him like he was crazy and I figured out he was talking about the Olympic Barbell. He claims that "everyone" calls it a California bar. I have been training for almost 10 years at many...

    Can protein eating patterns be manipulated to put

    Basically what I was trying to say in the thread was that in almost all occasions you do not have to worry about the effects of protein on the liver. Somehow this got lost... Conversations should not have to be taken to this extent for guys on the forum to give input or advice. Some guys like...

    Too close to the project

    Sucks you havent got the results you wanted so far, but you have the right attitude which is never give up. You did mention exactly what your routine was besides saying it was 3x per week and mostly compounds. So others can evaluate better give a sample workout that resembles what you have done...

    "Get Big Exercise"

    You might not be getting &quot;big&quot; because your &quot;very picky&quot;. You need to eat adequate amounts of carbohydrates and fat in order to put on significant amount of weight/size. As for the exercises concentrate on compounds: Bench Press, Squat, Bent over Barbell Row, Dips, those are...

    Can protein eating patterns be manipulated to put

    &quot;During digestion, proteins are broken down into amino acids. Unlike carbohydrates and triglycerides, which are stored, proteins are not warehoused for future use. Instead, amino acids are either oxidized to produce ATP or used to synthesize new proteins for body growth and repair. Excess...
