    when i first started training 30 years ago,i did a 3 day a week routine consisting of all compound exercises.....i did 3 sets of 12,10,8,pyramiding the weight up....now i know hst pyramid the weight over 2 weeks ...my question is whats the difference between the two routines. ps i am talking about a full body workout.
  2. The principles that HST are based on have been around for a while and many many routines incorporated at least one of them.

    I guess what make HST unique and I'll quote Bryan

    That's what makes HST different, other than that many of the set and rep protocols have been used by many.
