  1. Thanks OS and hotdog for keeping the HST thread going , my training has been sporadic lately at times because of my misfortune , and you got to dedicate yourself to really do the HST justice . Still resting the Tennis/Golfers elbow slightly but doing mid heavy DB rows and light con curls . The bad MFL prop left my quads weak , but my squat is now back to what it was so glad there .

    I have noticed since I stopped HST I have lost some strength and endurance and cant get what I was getting repwise . I felt stronger on HST . Gonna have to get that back . Soon . ~Ogh

  3. UPDATE: Since I took a lay-off (I hate the word QUIT) from HST I have been rehabbing and working out just twice a week , fullbody workouts but the legs/chest/delts/tri"s are worked in the morning and back/biceps 6-8 hours later when Im refreshed again . This was suggested by a sports medicine BB friend who's helping me tackle this elbow problem . He thought 3 workouts a week might be hurting my injuries and they needed longer rebuild times and more rest.

    Its really different workouts in the morning then later on a smaller one . You sure have more energy for the bk/bi's compaired to all at once workouts ......still planning on HST again next month . ~Ogh

    Hmm HST... I need to check this out. I've seen some other sites talk about it. I'm looking to make a big change in my workout. This could be it.

    Do we have a HST for dumbasses thread?

    Nope, but we should! I am still learning as well but love it so far. Start one up Furious! Maybe we could get some info from Millard, he has been using the program for a while and looks great! For more HST info check out thinkmuscle.com.
