Joined the forum a while back when I thought HST looked very interesting, then program hopped out of HST, probably b/c I set things up wrong. IIRC, the first week of 15's were more brutal than they should have been b/c greedy and inexperienced so I said "f*ck this". Recently decided to try HST as I hit a wall with other programming and have also re-aggravated some long term injuries (from non-lifting activities). Should add that now that I'm more experienced w/ lifting, I cannot find anything that I disagree with regarding the HST set of theories. My experience with the starting strength novice and various "intermediate" layouts was that the best progress over time came from sub-maximal effort; when I started getting up into the "RPE" 9 or 10 range (at or almost to failure every workout) consistently, I started over-training. Plus the only "SD" I got was forced, but almost always came back stronger a few weeks after the deload. I'm four workouts in (5th today) and would like to know how this layout looks before I start the 10's. So far so good with the 15's. I am not Squatting or Deadlifting at this time b/c of Hip, Knee and Back injuries. Hopefully this Google Sheets link comes across OK: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zEFhRzNHi44MXHB_TCpHfZWvEzBojwtuw4wxfEcKwEY/pubhtml Thanks.
