I just did it, knowing when my muscles were ready for action again!</div> Yup, that's an excellent way to judge your M-time. It's not a matter of the clock (though the second hand can be a help); it's a matter of your muscles being ready to go again. Caution: Dan does warn against M-times of over 30 seconds, but it takes a labcoat to understand why. <div> (MasterCFI @ Dec. 04 2008,9:57)</div><div id="QUOTEHEAD">QUOTE</div><div id="QUOTE">Any thoughts on doing the maxstim for 20 reps for the chins throughout, while keeping the rest of the workout pure HST? And then adding weight to my belt as I hit 20 reps or so...?</div> When I do Max-Stim, I keep the reps constant (usually at 20 or 25), and increase the weight each workout. Chins can be difficult if you can't do 20 bodyweight chins to start. My gym has a wussy-assist machine that let's me start at less than my bodyweight. You might want to start with 20 rep pull-downs, increasing the weight each workout until you're pulling down your bodyweight. Then you can switch to chins and add weight to your belt each workout.
