I'm moving onto an HST program created by 0311, and since he put alot of effort into it I won't post the routine. Out of respect for him and his efforts I will leave it up to him to distribute the program, so this journal will focus on my general progress with the program.
Here's the basics of the program:
Two workouts per mesocycle: Workout A and Workout B
3 Workouts per week: Week 1:A,B,A....Week 2:B,A,B....Week 3:A,B,A...and so on
2 Weeks : 12-15RM
2-3 Weeks : 8-10RM
3-4 Weeks : 4-6RM
Progress so far (or lack there of):
After Needsize's 5x5 I took about 10-12 days for Strategic Deconditioning, finished one week of the 12-15's and got really sick (also the reason why I haven't been around lately) so I've SD'd for another 7 days and am back to square one. Health permitting I will start week 1 of the first cycle this monday.
I've downscaled my diet a bit, keeping protein high, from 5000-5500 calories to 4000-4500 calories. That extra 1000 calories or so is a bit difficult to fit in with work and everything, and it's not very difficult for me to eat 4000 calories after being at 5000-5500 for so long.
I'm excited to start seeing some size gains. I plan to hit 190-200lbs when the dust clears. I'm at 185lbs right now, so thats 5-15lbs in 2 months...BOOYAH!
