I love lifting heavy weights. But HST has me lift light for a good portion of the program. Here's a what I've done to avoid crappy workouts with light weights: 1 - use a different tempo. Instead of 1-0-1, I might use 1-2-2 2 - breathe deeper 3 - use ultra-strict form 4 - do 3 sets instead of 2 When I get to heavy 5's and maximal training, I'll use a faster tempo, fewer sets, and lots of rest between sets. What do you think?
