    Thoughts on HST training? (routine inside)

    Has anyone tried this?

    http://www.hypertrophy-specific.com/hst_II.html

    They make some good points about progressive overload, and actually creating an "environment" where the muscle receives more constant stimulus to grow, rather than each part getting a "spike" of stimulus, recovering for 2 days, and then doing nothing until the next week.

    The only thing I DON'T like is that I don't know if it would be enough volume to result in a good level of protein depletion and therefore supercompensation (like what Warrior talks about often).

    Any thoughts? I do find I've been making better gains on a split where I train 3 days on, 1 off, than 2 on, one off, 2 on, 2 off.

    I just feel more agressive and energetic and pumped all of the time. Maybe just psychological but I certainly do not feel tired or overtrained.

    Anyways I was thinknig this might be food for thought anyways... I know we are all different, some things work better for others, but I'm mostly wondering about the protein depletion thing.

    I searched for HST afterwards and found lots of good info.
    Sorry for the annoyance.
