Hi everyone! Starting a log here and my first HST cycle. Any comments and help would be greatly appreciated. A little background info. Have been working out for three years, mostly muscle mag crap until I found this website in August. While waiting to get authorized decided to do the intermediate Madcow 5x5, which I came across on this site. Loved it!! After 15 weeks I'm finally ready for a little change. I would like to start HST on Thurs. but I've only been off seven days. Should I wait another two days to start? Kind of anxious to hit the iron again and try this out you know. Here's what I have set up for my first cycle.
