    Hi all,
    This is my first attempt at HST and while I am developing my training log, I would like to know from anyone out there if I have it right. Using military presses as an example, if my 15RM is 100lbs, my routine would be as follows; 75,80,85,90,95,100. Taken straight into my next block, my 10RM would be say 120. So that would look like this; 95,100,105,110,115,120. Do I have that right? Thanks.

    Please post an actual thread about this, this topic isn't meant for answering questions like this one.
  3. Interesting to look back at this...

    --So I achieved both written deadlift goals. Bests of 2013 were 395x5 and 430x1. 405 for 5 and 450x1 will both happen in 2014.

    --Due to shoulder issues I didn't achieve Dip or Chin goals. I think got as high as 2 reps with BW+135 on dips; heaviest I went with chins was BW+75x1 I think. Now that my shoulder is back to good, I may be able to make some progress on these goals again.

    --Squats were nowhere close, mainly because I set goals based on "power squats, just below parallel" vice full ROM. When I trained squats this year, I trained only full ROM... I think I managed 235x5. If the shoulder can handle it, I may try squats again later this year; this time I may train them to "just below parallel" in the event I try to do any powerlifting contests.

    --I have, so far, successfully worked flat BB press back into my training. This didn't technically happen in 2013, but close enough. I'm currently at
    175x10, and that is pretty close to a 10RM, 185 is probably my 10RM... all told, I'm feeling pretty good about that. I'm hoping that I'll be able to hit 275x1 on flat bench.

    --BW got as high as 183 in 2013, but I was also carrying a bit too much BF in my humble opinion. A "lean" 180 (~12% bf) should hopefully be an attainable goal this year (currently about ~13%bf and ~178).

    Great Idea of a thread! My current PRs are:

    -Squat 135kgs
    -Bench 116kgs
    -Press 70kgs
    -Dead 170kgs

    Current body weight is 190Ilbs

    I am currently doing 5x5 program whilst on a cutting cycle. It would be interesting to see if any of these improve, but I'm not holding out much hope while in a calorie deficit, and my immediate goal is to loose bf, while maintaining as much as I can.

    My goals by the end of the year however are:

    Squat - 170 kgs
    Bench - 130 kgs
    Deads - 200 kgs

    Fingers crossed.

    In my session tonight, I managed a 77.5kg (170.5lb) snatch PR, and then immediately followed it with an 80kg (176lb) PR. I just missed 82.5kg after that.
    My target for this year is 85kg but I now want to shoot higher than that. 90kg or 200lb seems like a better target to aim for now.

    Got my 110kg (242lb) clean @ 85kg b/w.
    Not my best catch but fairly straightforward to stand up with. Now I just have to successfully jerk that sucker overhead.
    New goal for my clean is 115kg (253lb).

    Push-pressed 100kg (220lb) after power-cleaning it.
    An unexpected PR!

    385lb sumo deadlift achieved 2.5 months early @ 170lb. So I'll increase my sumo deadlift goal to 405lb by Jan 1st.

    Pre-Christmas easy ... that's not even 10kg. Just start adding 1kg to the bar each session/week. When you can't, stick on it for a few sessions and then repeat once you get it.

    Nice job.

    There are two 2.5lb magnetic plates at my gym. That's equiv. to about 1.15kg a pop. I'd have to plop one right in the middle of the bar and hope that it stays on.

    Don't know if there's any way to gauge if I'm indeed getting stronger from microloading other than being able to tell if bar speed is slowing down as I attempt to interval up. But I guess if I'm hitting 10 singles with a weight then it's probably not anywhere above 93-95% 1RM.

    Buy 1kg ankle weights, add to middle/both ends of the bar.
