I've been training roughly for a bit over 2 years, before then I mucked around with weight training to help with swimming + basketball - but I had no real idea what I was doing (I was also fairly lanky weighing under 220).
I decided to get into strength training after coming across a Joe DeFranco vid - it was extremely appealing and so the motivation grew to build up a home gym.
Before getting enough equipment to start WS4SB I did this routine roughly for a few months - to sort out technique, RM's etc.
Mon: Weighted Chins (4 x 6), Incline Bench Press (6 x 4), Back Squat (4 x 6)
Wed: Front Squat (6 x 4), Bench Press (8 x 3), Bentover Row (8 x 3)
Fri: Deadlift (8 x 3), Military Press (4 x 6), Upright Row (6 x 4)
Once I had enough equipment I ran WS4SB for over a year, then I came across T-Nation and started to read Christian Thibaudeau articles - when HPM was written I felt like I needed a change; I have been doing HPM for the past 14 weeks.
I plan on running HPM until the winter months - in which I'll probably start into a solid Powerlifting program
