    here's a data point if you're going to adjust what you're benching... I can do 185 about 5 times, and my bb bench for 15s starts at 110 and goes to 135 in 5 lb increments.

    So far so good... you can always make it harder by changing your tempo up

    The first couple of days are the worst and the best. They're bad because you feel like a pussy doing such light weights, but then again, that's the easiest it will ever be. I have puked many a time after working out, especially on max days. It is so draining, yet feels so good.

    the more i think about it... the more i didn't enjoy working out today... i felt like i was doing too much crap/running around 11ty billion times and it wasn't fun :o

    i think i might just go back to the old 3-day split and settle for less results :hs:

    just wait till full-body max days

    then weeks 6-8 where its 2 weeks straight of it, if you chose to do it.


    personally, though, its my favorite part

    this was posted in the hst forum


    strength does not go down in the conventional sense. all of you seem to have this notion that you're going to get swoll like purevil, but have the strength of scubamatt.

    neither of which will happen.

    you find your max's in the beginning, then you repeat them at the end of every two weeks. if your strength was going down, you wouldn't be able to reach those max's.

    next cycle, all your max's increase. usually by 10-20 pounds. therefore your strength is going up.

    what lyle was talking about was maximal strength capacity (1rm)


    now curl those 15's hard!

    You're not supposed to be killing yourself until the very last day. If you're already getting sore now, you're probably not going to finish.
