    First off, sorry this wrong forum.

    First time on the site, when I did HST before was a friend guiding me, so quite possible I did it wrong.

    Ok, did HST few years back with amazing success. Not sure why haven't gone back to it till now. I did make some variations. 2 exercises per body part for 2 sets. Now I was younger and could eat and sleep more.

    Also when see my workout giving now wont be much for legs Ive had 9 knee surgeries from car accident and next ones are total replacements. They hurt like hell so they don't get to much training. Also have a lower back problem but get epidurals help with that.

    Please critique. Wanna do this right. Been back in gym for 2 months after year off due to surgeries. Gotten lazy. Been working out since 12 though.

    age 33
    prob 275, feel I look best 240.

    Seems pretty par for the course ... 6'5, so lucky ... :)

    Don't repeat the 10s in week 7&8, instead either maintain or try to extend your 5RM and/or do negatives.

    Make sure you're eating plenty as well, for someone of your height there will be a fairly steep requirement for calories.

    Is your goal to build muscle or cut fat, for this cycle ... ? You can't do both at once.

    Thank you for your response.

    I will extend the 5s. My thinking is since I more then likly wouldn't be able do negatives on some exercises that require a spot may try 10s. I go gym usually 3am. Person working counter will spot me, just don't wanna bother him to much.

    My goal for next 8 weeks is build muscle trying get back to where I was before car accident.

    If you're doing two exercises per body part per training session you're going to over train when you hit weeks 5&6. I counted 16 exercises = 32 sets in one training session x 3 times a week. Once you get to the 5th and 6gh week you'll hit the 48 set range per session x 3 times a week. If you're taking steroids, go for it. If you're going natural, you're an injury waiting to happen.
