HST was a good program, but lifting the same muscle groups every other day messed with my wrists and shoulders quite a bit. I developed overuse injuries. So next I did MAX-OT. Gained some strength for about 8 weeks but not too much size, probably because low-volume, high-intensity plans have never been very successful for me. Since then I have been training as follows:
Sat: Quads, low back, inner abs
Sun: Thib’s ab program
Tues: Back, calves, obliques
Wed: Chest, rotator cuffs, tris
Thurs: Shoulders, biceps, hamstrings
And as I wrote, I decreased meal count and increased calorie intake. The results: I have gained four pounds in the last six months, going from 165 to 169. My LBM has gone from 145.2 pounds to 147 pounds. So a couple pounds of muscle. Not too shabby. Remember, I never said I was giving up.
