I planned out my cycle, which is very minimalist considering I'm still an intermediate lifter. I've got one compound exercise per body part with the exception of sumo deadlift and squat. Problem is, I read this thread: http://thinkmuscle.com/forum/showth...ld-re-write-hst-in-2014-what-would-he-change/ ...and Bryan's recommendations in it call for 30 reps for upper body and 60 reps for lower body, per body part, per session. So not to beat the dead horse with a debate on how to implement that in general, I'd like to know how I should fix up my upcoming cycle. I'm currently on SD, so I can't test my maxes for any other lifts, so I'm stuck with what I've got, and I don't have nearly enough reps for my lower body to initiate growth if I'm interpreting the 30-60 rule right, because I'm doing an A/B split with sumo deadlift/squat. Here is my planned cycle: http://thinkmuscle.com/forum/showthread.php?42229-TangoDown-s-Vanilla-HST-Run So what do you think, folks? My thoughts are, since I've only got one compound lift per body part, if I shoot for 2 sets of 15 during the 15s mesocycle and 3 sets of 10 during the 10s mesocycle WITH THE EXCEPTION of the 15RM and 10RM days (since those are only 2 days out of 4 weeks, it shouldn't make much of a difference if I have to drop the volume on those days). Then for 5s, I guess I'll shoot for 3 sets of 5 save for the 5RM day (if the volume needs to be dropped there). Don't know how I'd get another 15 reps there. Does that work? Now, for squat/sumo deadlift, it's a bit more fuzzy. Since, apparently, 60 reps are required, that's going to be impossible with the A/B split. So I was thinking...since I've got 10-15% intervals for squat and sumo dl, the submaximal days aren't going to be THAT heavy. So would it be possible to forgo the split and do both lifts on the same session 3 times per week? I could repeat the same loads two sessions in a row to compensate for the larger intervals, but then I'd end up maxing out squat and deadlift on the same day twice in a row. Alternatively, I could go up by increments of 5% every session, but I'd think more fatigue would accumulate because the submaximal weights would be much closer to my maxes. Both of these methods aren't perfect. So I don't really know what to do. Any assistance would be appreciated.
