Hello everyone. I have successfully used HST over the years and have built a lot of size from it. I have a question that is somewhat difficult to pose, I'll give it my best attempt. Since I also care about 1 rep max strength, I believe it a good idea to practice it. So every week I hit a heavy single (~90-95% estimated 1rm) every week on the squat, the press and the deadlift. Doing this allows me to keep the skill of expressing 1 rep max strength for those movements. Now, for example let's say I'm running a cookie cutter HST template with the standard 2 weeks of each 15s, 10s, 5s, and continued 5s. This is day 1 of the first week so I am using my lightest weight for squats, say 75% of my 15 rep max. So if I am using 215 for my first HST session, would it throw off the effect of the mandatory load increase if once a week, before the 1 or 2 sets of 15 reps, I hit a heavy single on the squat, say 455. So I would work up to 455 for a single, then follow it with the sets of 15. Would that once a week single with 455 condition the tissue in such as way that the effect of the progressive loading scheme is diminished or mitigated? Please forgive me if this question is hard to understand. I can rephrase if need be. Thank you for your time.
