    Default Hodgetwins review HST

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_DPEX0oOws

    If you didn't know, these guys have one of the biggest bodybuilding channels on Youtube. And they're known to spew a lot of broscience but a lot of people eat it up.

    That being said, there's isn't a lot of HST material on Youtube. So to cut to the chase, they basically said:

    With HST you'll probably be in the gym 1.5...2 hours a workout.

    To maximize muscle, HST doesn't work. It's only good for a beginner cuz you need a lot of exercises and sets.

    You put too much stress on your body with HST.

    You'll be too tired to do HST often because you work all body parts.

    ______________________

    So obviously they didn't research the program, nor do they know what they're talking about. But most people eat this **** up.

    The only other review of HST I could find was this guy:

    And he also canned the program without even trying it. And he's also got a big channel.

    Point is, and this has probably been discussed before, but I think HST needs a Youtube presence because Youtube is massive, so you've got tons of people looking to get big and strong going to Youtube "gurus" and getting bad advice (Scooby with his "squats are bad/you can lose weight and gain muscle even after training for 30 years", etc). If HST can make a dent, hell even a small one, on the Youtube bodybuilding scene, then maybe we'll see a spike in more people using it (along with other programs that are not contradictory to HST's fundamentals like SS, Stronglifts, and DC) as opposed to doing splits with 50,000 exercises and never progressing.

    Personally I always figured if someone was dumb enough to go to a 'bro' source, they deserverd brotelligence. You can't fix stupid, why bother trying?

    It's very difficult to get through to bros. There are not a lot of them who can comprehend science.

    That said, I was actually encouraged by several folks to start a youtube channel, even had someone who was going to manage all of it for me but I really don't have time for that kind of stuff, so nope.

    Now if we could set up some kind of group with a few different people, and have one person do a video/article each month/week/whatever, that might be easier. But honestly I doubt it would actually happen.
    PRs:

    Squat - 485 lbs
    Bench - 315 lbs
    Deadlift - 635 lbs
    Total - 1435 lbs

    When you make the leap from nonsense to reason, you sort of become a minority.

    That being said, I think Bryan would have to lead the way on a youtube channel.

    Hodgetwins are morons ... I mean, they're 'smart' morons in the same way Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are - they make $$ for doing basically nothing, but at the end of the day they know extremely little about how to put on lean body weight without assistance from chemists.
