I'm 5'9'' 195 and this is my first HST cycle. And Loving it. I've been in the iron game now since Sep. 1979. And NEVER had results like this! Drug free too.
I am 5'10" and (currently) 224 lbs. Been lifting weights off and on (more off than on for too many years) since, hm, 1986 or so I guess. Just finished one complete HST sequence (in SD now) and I really like it – HST is much simpler than trying to remember how often I went heavy last week etc.
Im a tiny 5'11'' 260-265
I am 20 years old, 6'1, and currently 185 lbs (BF around 14%)
I was introduced to weightlifting a year and a half ago, and I was oon and off until this past winter. At first, I did the standard program lifting different body parts 3-4 times a week while doing upwards to 12 sets for a bodypart during one of those days! With some research and guidance, I found out why I was hitting plateaus and not having the gains I wanted. I then moved on to POWER FACTOR TRAINING. If anyone has tried this program out, let me know how it worked for you! I did have decent gains in the first two months, but then it led to diminishing returns.
Now, I am just starting my first HST cycle, and I am still trying to cut another 10 lbs of fat off by the end of summertime (or even better yet, by the end of my first cycle - 7 weeks)
*hangs head in shame*
185 at 9% isn't anything to be ashamed about. That's pretty good. But at 6'5, you can probably get up to 220 or so naturally, at similar bodyfat levels, I mean. More fat would obviously mean you would weigh more... But 6'5, 220 at 9% would be really impressive.
I finally broke 200. So now I'm about 6'1-6'2 at 200 lbs and around 13-15% bodyfat, soon to be 185 pounds at 8% in a couple months.
Thanks for the encouragement. 220lbs is my ultimate goal. I'm starting my first ever cycle of HST a wk from today. I cant wait to break the 200lb barrier. I've just turned 30 yrs old and have a goal of entering in a local BB competition in the future. Lots of work ahead of me!
Funny you should mention that. I`m currently 6`1 at 202lbs. 2 years to go to meet my target and am well ahead of the curve.
*hangs head in even greater shame*
51 years old:
Just recovered from shoulder surgery, and back in the gym after 3 months of rehab. Hope to get up to [email protected]%.
5'9 & 180 lbs
as for BF never measured it but I know it's low
was a skinny 160lbs b4 HST and just one cycle - BAM!!
but I think Muscle memory has alot to do with it b/c I was even bigger than this b4
my parents are actually upset with me and telling me that I got to curb my eating b/c I'm swelling and that's not natural. I couldn't have got a better compliment
BTW I'm 24 yrs old
Almost done with my third 9 week phase. I started at 6'1" 190 and 18.5 % bf. I am now 6'1" 196-198 at 16.5% bf. I haven't done measurements in a few years though.
Chiefhog, I'm 6'4 176 right now
I had it up to 185 last summer but school dropped me down to 168 in the winter. I've gained 8 lbs in three months (which is good for me!. Keep at it and I will too.
You can bet on it!
previous - 144.44 / current - 157.77
BF - struggling with this, currently 13.48%, target is 6.71 %
Currently bulking up, I think when summer starts I can start cutting down a little, difficult to bulk and stay lean.
