Body Transformation using HST
 
hi ppl....

i had an injury a few weeks ago (a shoulder injury)...the result being that i now have a lose shoulder joint.....here's a description of my injury: http://www.bodybuilding.net/17929-18-post.html

now, i plan on getting my butt into shape......safely...

i cant take away my shoulder injury, but what i CAN do is prevent further damage by training safely......

DISCLAIMER: with Eric3237's help, i've come up with an HST plan.....Eric has helped me in setting it up, but in the end it was my decision to put his suggestions or discard them.....so though full credit goes to eric for helping me out, it is still in the end, MY plan because it was upto me to give the final thumbs-up to it....

i think it is a must that i make a list of all the articles on HST which i have read which have helped me formulate this plan:

MY GOALS FOR HST:

although HST is a mass gain program, what i plan on doing is using it as a body transformation program...i want to reduce body fat AND increase muscle mass while at the same time maintaining my current body weight....i know that thats pretty difficult to achieve, but i want to try it....i'll be posting pics at the end of the program....

it looks like i've over-estimated myself when i thought i was actually underestimating myself...i might hit my 15 rep max in the next 1-2 sessions after which i'll have to stick to that till i complete week 2....

but today's session felt great....i did some shoulder recuperation exercises pre-workout, then i took a looongg steam bath after workout.....and i did some solid stretching (not DC, but good nonetheless)...

good workout on the whole...

I've never seen a smith that's uses a weightless setup...you can check by unracking it and seeing if it falls when you let go lol....if it falls it isnt weightless...The smiths I use have a bar weight of 45lbs (the counterweights only take off the weight of the mechanism that racks the bar)...hope this helps bro

I add the weight of the bar in just so I can compare it to my regular flat bench, shrugs, etc...

_Wolf_ 06-16-2006 11:31 PM

ok cool...that means i have to add 22 lbs to all my machine numbers...

thanks

Some smith machines are weightless, some aren't. The ones at my gym I could lay on the flat bench and use my two pointer fingers and push the bar three feet above my body. Kinda like if I bench pressed on the moon. So I wouldn't add any weight because you don't know exactly how much it weighs. You'll be more accurate to not add any weight and just focus on progression with adding weight to the bar.

If you feel embarrased about any weights you're using, then sure, add in the weight. The point is to be as accurate as possible and focus more on progression, not how much. :)

BTW, where'd you get 22 lbs?

Talking about sweating minutia! One of the things I really hate is those gyms where the weight of the machines change everyday.
