The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    HST question.

    Just a question. How does only 1 set per muscle group induce hypertrophy? I was under the impression that a few was needed for maximal hypertrophy.

    because of the frequency of the workouts only one set per excercise is needed , and because HST focuses on full-body workouts. If u were to do anymore than 1 set u would most likely overtrain.

    If you read the HST site, it actually explains it. It looks like 1 or 2 sets for the day, but if you add it up by the end of the week, it's more like 6 sets.

    So, instead of completing all the sets in one day, you are spreading them out over the course of the week. It's all on the HST site.

    Actually HST is not 1 set per muscle group, if you look at his suggested workout it is more like 3 sets per muscle group.

    Best,

    I was going to disagree with you, but then I looked back at the suggested workout at Bryan's site. Most individual exercises are done for 1 or 2 sets, but here's the totals per body part per day:

    Legs = 3
    Chest = 3
    Back = 4
    Traps = 1 (so Back = 5)
    Shoulders = 3
    Arms = 4
    Calves = 2
    Abs = 2

    Been thinking about trying this routine. How many set of warm ups should I do? And should I just do warm ups at the beginning and be done with it or should I do it at the beginning of each muscle group? Please help.....

    If you haven't been working out 3x a week before starting HST, my advice would be to eat like a HOG. My basal metabolic rate jumped so high when I did HST that I didn't keep up eating-wise, even though I was eating anything I wanted and drinking 2-3 protein shakes a day. Your mileage may vary.

    You should be eating like you were bulking.
