The Weight Lifter

12/19/05 Info

Today I did day 5 of HST 15 reps. I noticed it's starting to get tougher - day 6 should be to failure. I'm pretty sure I'm off on my base weights, or at least on some - for example, I'm doing 70 on shrugs (each hand), so 80 will be my target for failure on 15's... but I may be able to do more. As this is my first pass at HST, I'm expecting tweaks like that. I'll see how it goes - I may up the weight on the second set on day #6, or I may just press until failure at the target weight.

I think my new name for HST is "Progressive Pain". It starts pretty laid back, but I can see that by the 5th or 6th work out, it gets nasty... then resets to a bit more mellow and gets evey more nasty. By the 6th workout ont he 5's, it's just going to suck! :)
