View Full Version : HST - Don't have sufficient weights. Suggestions?

09-07-2004, 06:53 PM

With all the hype regarding the HST training method, I figured I would give it a try. The problem is, however, because of time, money, and other factors, I workout at home with a limited amount of equipment.

In particular, I don't have sufficients weights to get heavy enough for a 5 Rep Max. In a couple cases, I can only get the weight heavy enough for a 10 Rep Max. What would you suggest I do during the 5 RM phase of HST for these particular exercises? Should I just do them with 10 RM as though they were 5 RM? Should I do an additional set or two at 10 reps?

Thanks for any suggestions you might have.

Just change the rep ranges around. So instead of 15, 10, 5. Try 15, 12, 10.
