Hi guys, I have read up a lot lately on the HST style and am giving it a go for myself. I am new to the site and I was just looking for some advice on my training log. I am currently torn between 2 training logs (one which I currently do) and a more simplistic one. If anyone could give any advice or ideas on what they think could be more beneficial? My training days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday so non-consecutive days. Training Log 1 - This workout would be completed 3 times a week Incline Barbell Bench Press 3 sets 6-10 reps Wide Grip Weighted Pull-Ups 3 sets 6-10 reps Flat Dumbbell Flys 1-2 sets 6-10 reps Bent Over Barbell Rows 2 sets 6-10 reps Standing Over Head Press 2 sets 6-10 reps Side or Rear Lateral Raises 1 set 8-10 reps Barbell Bicep Curl or Alternating Dumbbell Curl 2-3 sets 6-10 reps Seated Overhead Tricep Extension 3-4 sets 6-10 reps Barbell Back Squat 3-5 sets 6-10 reps Calf Rasies on Leg Press Machine 3 sets 6-10 reps Hanging Leg Raise 3 sets 10-15 reps Note - I do squats nearly as a last exercise in my workouts as if I do them first I feel it takes away from my other exercises and I can lift as heavy on them. Whereas if I do them later in my workouts my squat strength seems to still be good and I actually hit a Rep PR on squats in my last 2 workouts. Training Log 2 - This is split up of Workout A and Workout B performed like ABA BAB over the course of 2 weeks so in Week 1 would be 2 Workout A's and 1 Workout B and on Week 2 it would be 2 Workout B's and 1 Workout A - Which I am sure most of you would have understood by the way I wrote it but just to make sure I wrote it down as well. Workout A Deadlift 3-5 sets 5-15 reps (Which if doing twice a week the 2nd workout will be light more explosive deadlifts with about 50% of the weight I would normally use.) Incline Bench Press 4-5 sets 5-15 reps Weighted Pull Ups 4-5 sets 5-15 reps Standing Shoulder Press 3 sets 5-15 reps Barbell Bicep Curl 2-3 sets 6-10 reps Calf Raises 3 sets 10-20 reps Hanging Leg Raises 3 sets 10-15 reps Workout B Incline Bench Press 4-5 sets 5-15 reps Bent Over Barbell Rows 4-5 sets 5-15 reps Side or Rear Lateral Raises 2-3 sets 8-15 reps Tricep Dips 2-3 sets 8-15 reps Barbell Back Squat 3-5 sets 5-15 reps Calf Raises 3 sets 10-20 reps Hanging Leg Raises 3 sets 10-15 reps The volume is slightly higher as my body seems to be able to cope with this training volume without decreasing strength. I am currently doing Training Log 1 and making good progress. However as there are a lot of exercises to complete I am only resting 60 seconds between sets so I can't go all out in my sets otherwise I will have to drop the weight the next set, so I try to get all sets for the maximum reps then add weight to the bar. With Training Log 2 there isn't as many exercises over the 2 workouts so I can take a bit more of a rest and focus more on gaining strength on these exercises. I would appreciate everyone's opinion on these Training Logs and which one they feel would be more beneficial for increasing muscle mass but also having the strength to go with it. In terms I don't want to be 'all show and no go'
