I just wanted to say hello to Bryan, Lol, Dan Moore, Sci Muscle, Totentanz, Old and Grey, NWLifter, Blade and any of the other many posters that might still be around. I haven't posted around here again in several years, but I always like to revisit this forum from time to time. It's interesting looking back at the history of these boards. Back in ~2001, in the early thinkmuscle days before the original HST days, I was gobbling up all the stuff Bryan was writing at the young age of ~21. 16 years later I'm 37 going on 38 and still find myself mentally revisiting the subject of the science behind resistance training quite frequently. Having gotten a couple of degrees in related fields (undergraduate degree in Biology, graduate degree in Clinical Exercise Phys), I still find the HST perspective on the subject of using resistance training to optimize hypertrophy refreshingly free of dogma and mystification still so common in fitness circles. I've had setbacks in my own training and nutrition - I wound up finding out I had pretty terrible cholesterol several years back and have performed a variety of experiments to help control this to some success. I've also had a couple of shoulder surgeries that were not entirely successful, so I've managed to lose a huge amount of strength/muscle. However, I'm slowly getting back the ability to perform most primary movements and looking to re-gain lost muscle mass, so I find myself gravitating back to HST principles. I recall having a discussion a few years back on the subject of "updating" the default HST routine to incorporate some of the results of more recent research (Wernbom et. al) combined with my own practical experience, and I'm considering writing a few more thoughts here at some point in the near future if anyone is around/interested. But either way, I just wanted to give a shout out to all the people who have contributed here over the years. It's ~16 years since the start of these boards and I still find a passion in the subject of resistance training science that was heavily influenced by Bryan's early writings. Beyond just the knowledge that Bryan shared, the other thing that always struck me as unique was how genuinely kind and patient Bryan was. In an online fitness world of so many abrasive, combative personalities it was always very refreshing to me to interact with like-minded people who cared first and foremost about the science behind this stuff and could find constructive ways to share and debate the topics. So cheers to all of you.
