    Ended up at the doctors after waking up to a 102 temp for 3 days,
    I kept it down with OTC but couldn't take it anymore.
    They put me on Zithro and methypreg finished the course Monday and would say I am about 90%.
    Being an ex-smoker of 20 years they checked me for cancer but came up negative on x-ray and blood work, whew.

    I don't think the Buff Dudes are natural but they have a good channel. Just my opinion.

    The short hair dude is definately on something, no way that can be natural.

    The long hair dude in some video measured his arms at 18.75 pumped he just has horrible insertion points so he looks smaller he is. He could have great genetics but I've never seen a natural measure over 17

    How's that HST working out for you?

    On a second round, switched out BB rows for DB rows and lat raises for Leg extensions.
    2/3 the way through the 15's. Getting fantastic painful pumps half expect to see stretch marks.

    I am off cycle now so it is kicking my ass, but have kept all my gains so far, one week out.
    Had to gut through one WO with crashing test levels and shitty recovery, but hanging in there.

    Told my work out partner there is no way I am going for another round after this, maybe a push, pull, legs split or a 5x5 with accessory

    Fuuuckkk lol mucho sets !! And 4x a week?

    I did 6 exercises for 3 sets
    3x a week

    Squat
    Sldl
    Dip
    Incline
    Pull down
    Row variation

    All about deconditioning foreal. We can condition our bodies to make light workouts a growth stimulus. Once u go high volume, high intensity, you quickly hit a wall... U can only go so hard, so much. Better to work up to it for 8-12 weeks. I liked HST as a natty especially

    I have run about 6 cycles of HST and I have gained muscle on each cycle. I no longer use the standard rep ranges like 15, 10, or 5 but instead just gradually increase weight and lower volume during the entire 8 to 10 weeks.

    I tried a cycle of HST and wasn't real crazy about it. It was ok, but I prefer push/pull, I like more volume.

    If you wanted to you could do HST with more volume by adding a few more sets each workout. This would still keep frequency high and allow for more volume, but hey I got ya man. I now know I grow best with low volume but high frequency but yeah stick with what works best for you.

    I actually tried something like that and I was in the gym forever, lol. I now train 6 days a week and hit everything twice instead of 3 times. I have been training awhile though and am used to more volume. Millard's HST split was actually pretty kool but after the first cycle I jumped off.

    Haha wow I actually did my second HST cycle exactly like this. I worked out 6 days a week, hit every body part 3 times a week, and added more volume than what Haycock suggests but I still felt like I just didn't need all that volume. I experimented on the next go around and cut my volume back and started hitting everything only twice a week (lifting 4 days a weeks). I starting gaining muscle like crazy!

    Its just funny how everyone responds a little bit differently to training.

    Yeah it's not one size fits all. Millard B's routine was a 6 day split, he split it up into upper and lower. My six days is two pull workouts, 2 push and 2 legs. Hell I'm in gym two hours just with that when I tried to do everything it was insane. I think this or a 5x5 is great for a beginner. Most beginners do BB body part splits. A lot of people don't wanna train 6 days a week, me I love it.

    I do push/pull with HST now as a full body routine would kick my ass since the weights I've worked up to with successive cycles have gotten too heavy. There's no way I could do multiple sets of 315+ pounds squats and then bench all in the same day. Not gonna happen.

    And yeah you can have your crazy 6 days a week, I like my 4 days a week just fine haha.

    Both sound good to me, might have to try both.
    Split my full body into 2 days and train 6 days a week hit each body part 3 times a week. yeah baby.
    But going heavy and destroying the muscles 2 times a week sounds like some serious strenght gains too.
