Hey guys, so i decided to switch to HCT-12 as my summer workout program, the routine I use to do was a 5 X 5. I'm pretty new to these forums, but I have been reading around here for a while. A little bit of a background on me, I'm a Division II baseball player, 19 years old. I stand 5'10" and weigh around 175 lbs.

My general goal from this program is to gain as much lean muscle mass as I can(while staying flexible, I'm a pitcher). I'm very excited to start up with this program after reading the Key Principles to Growth (http://www.wannabebig.com/hypertrophy-cluster-training-hct-12/hypertrophy-cluster-training-hct-12-key-principles-to-growth/) article.

Here are my current(pre HCT-12) max stats:
Bench: 245
Squat: 335
Deadlift: 375


Oh, I would like to thank everyone on this site for actually being helpful and knowledgeable, unlike most weightlifting sites.

Here are some before pics:

I'm looking forward to see how this program works out for you as well. How did the first day of it feel?

The press felt pretty tough, but the dips and curls felt pretty easy. I'm sure it will get very tough as the weights progress.

Day 1: 5/10/10
So I did a semi version of the HCT-12, today my friend and I decided to max, since summer break starts tomorrow. But we didn't decide to max until after we already did a couple work sets, so I might have been able to push up a little more:(. But since we maxed I didn't get to do the 6+2+2+2 on the bench, but I did apply that on all of my other lifts(man that is tough). Anyway I maxed out at 245, which is what the bench max chart had me at.

I weighed myself before lifting today so I would have an accurate measure before starting HCT, weighed in at 167.

My lifts:
Horizontal Pressing- Flat Bench
Bar x 2
135 x 5
185 x 5
205 x 8
245 x 1
255 x fail
205 x 6
185 x 5

Triceps- Skull Crushers-
65 x 6
85 x 6
85 x 6
85 x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
Vertical Pressing- DB Shoulder Press-
50's x 6
60's x 6
60's x 6
60's x 6 + 2 + 2 + 0(just couldn't do anymore)
Vertical Pulling- Chin-ups
x 8
x 10
x 10
x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
Horizontal Pulling- Barbell Rows
135 x 6
155 x 6
175 x 6
175 x 6 + 2 + 1 + 1(To much weight, will get it next time though!!!:evillaugh:)

I really liked the 6 + 2 + 2 + 2 sets, they were killers! I can't wait to see how this progresses.

Nice start. Wondering why you put the triceps work before the shoulder work?

Hey Daniel, I am running program 2. I want to thank you for the routine, I have a feeling it's is going to help the ones performing it progress a lot!


Nice start. Wondering why you put the triceps work before the shoulder work?

Off Road I think it just kind of happened that way because my lifting partner went straight to those. But next time I am definitely going to do shoulder presses first.


Oh I am planning to start posting about my nutritional intake in a couple days. I would start posting about it now, but due to the fact I'm at school and it's the last week I haven't been eating as much as I should(I don't want to have to take a lot of extra food home). But I plan on eating roughly 2800-3200 calories a day, on a clean diet when I get home for the summer.

Cheers guys!

Looks like a good effort, but maybe you should have clustered the 315 on the deadlift and the 95 on the curls.

Why two top sets instead of one heavier set?

I really like the way the cluster sets feel, so I tried throwing in a couple cluster sets last week and loved it.

I was planning on doing accessory work today so I did not want to annihilate myself on the bench. I wanted to switch it up a bit, since I haven't been doing to many accessory exercises with this program.(I don't think accessory lifts are necessary with HCT-12 though, so I will probably only do them every other week)

chand006
05-24-2010, 06:28 PM
Oh, today I weighed myself and did a BF%:
Weight: 174.7
BF: 8.8%

So I have gone up over seven and half pounds, and my BF% has gone down a point or two.... it has only been two weeks!!!:evillaugh:

I plan on posting progress pics every four weeks during during the deload weeks. I don't know if these results will keep coming, but I am loving them while they are here.:)

The first four weeks of HCT-12 went great. Every lift went up, a lot. I went from a leg press of 535 x 4 to a leg press of 900 x 5. My bench went from 205 on the final cluster set to 225. This program simply works; I am so ready to start these next four weeks. Last week I deloaded so I could start the next four week phase. This deload week was very beneficial as I felt absolutely perfect during my first two workouts.

Looking really strong, I'm sure you could bench even more if you did less volume on the warm ups.

Yea true. It is nice to have a spotter for this 4 weeks on bench, because the first 4 weeks I did not. So for the first time through I didn't get to push myself as much.

I couldn't believe how much that deload week helped though, I felt so fresh as I lifted. I was doing leg press at 850(4 100's, 10 45's) and it seemed like I could do it 10 times with full ROM so I was like man I have to add 2 25's on there so it would be 900. I was pumped about repping that to say the least!

It's amazing how you truly start to appreciate deloads once you start taking them :)

You enjoying things so far?

You want to work up to one all out set with your heaviest weight. All prior sets should be ramping weight up to your heaviest effort. Also maybe dont do as many sets so that you have more energy for the final set.

Eg. Modified from your last session -

Haven't included any initial warmup sets.

I'm loving it so far Daniel. It has definitely surpassed all expectations I had for it. I mean I thought it would work, but not nearly this well. I talked one of my friends into doing a deload week, because I was telling him how much better my lifts felt.

Long time no post, but I am still running the program. I actually look forward to maxing after this 4 week set! This program really has seemed to work wonders. I am repping my pre-HCT-12 max, I think that is all I need to say about it being a good program.

I didn't do the HCT-12 today while I lifted because I figured the guy I asked to help spot me at the Y wouldn't really want to spot me with the +2 sets. But anyways here is what I did. I skipped shoulders because I was to wore out from the bench sets.

The first four weeks of HCT-12 went great. Every lift went up, a lot. I went from a leg press of 535 x 4 to a leg press of 900 x 5. My bench went from 205 on the final cluster set to 225. This program simply works; I am so ready to start these next four weeks. Last week I deloaded so I could start the next four week phase. This deload week was very beneficial as I felt absolutely perfect during my first two workouts.

Here is what I did yesterday:

Daniel may chime in here, but it seems like you're wearing yourself out on your warm up sets, I would think you could finish those cluster sets at a higher weight with less volume leading up to it. Either way your numbers and gains are huge man. Always look forward to seeing your workouts, keep going Parker.

So I decided to max on bench yesterday for the first time since I started HCT-12. I was pleasantly surprised with what I got.
Barbell Bench Press
135 x 10
185 x 5
225 x 4
265 x 1
295 x 1(I got this pretty easily)
315 x FAIL
245 x 4
225 x 6

I really think I could have gotten 305 if I wouldn't have been so greedy trying for the cool 315, 3-plate look! But I am still pleased with the max I got though, I didnt think I would get that much.
