    I can see my abs can you see yours?

    Raise the metabolic rate and burn fat. What part of that don't you understand.
    By the way that fat around your gut just so happens is part of the fat that will be burned...
    Come on guy you want to burn fat around your gut, raise your metabolic rate...

    Stop feeding the troll. If you do not feed the troll, he will go away, as there will be no one to get a reaction out of. This should be the last post in this thread, as nothing productive will come from this converstion. Have a nice day.

    Here is a study that backs my statment on GH......

    A good way to start off this discussion is to first look at the two hormones universally identified as those most integral to the building of muscle tissue, testosterone (representing the androgen class) and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1; the anabolic end product of GH). Elevation of either hormone, again, really only works well at promoting growth when training is also involved. Given the basic interaction between hormones and receptors, Bamman et al. set out in 2000 to see if receptor modification may play a key role in their tissue specificity. The group of researchers open up their study noting, “… transient elevations in serum anabolic factors such as growth hormones (GH) and testosterone have been documented after a bout of conventional resistance exercise… However, because the hypertrophic response is specific to the loaded muscle(s), activation by systemic hormone would require load-mediated modulation of the hormone’s efficacy in the exercised muscle. Load-mediated modulation of receptor expression or binding affinity in the muscle might explain localization of the growth response…”
    Bamman and company proceeded with the first in-depth examination of how androgen and IGF-1 receptor expression is changed in local tissues following exercise. The investigation involved 10 healthy male (7) and female (3) subjects, who were subject to bouts of eccentric and concentric resistance exercise and examined periodically for 48 hours after. Measures were taken of blood hormone levels, as well as local hormone receptor concentrations. The paper goes on to demonstrate some very interesting results. First, testosterone levels actually tended to decline in this study post-exercise. This was attributed to general as well as diurnal variation, the latter of which refers to the way testosterone levels fluctuate throughout the course of the day. IGF-1 levels did increase 48 hours after training, but only slightly (from 349 ng/dl to 416 ng/dl), and only with concentric training. Receptor concentrations, however, were a much different story. Both eccentric and concentric exercise produced significant increases in androgen and IGF-1 receptor concentrations. IGF-1 binding protein 4 (IGFBP-4) was also suppressed, which additionally would increase free IGF-1 and its biological activity. The results demonstrate that sensitivity to both testosterone and IGF-1 is markedly increased in local muscles following training, and present one way in which the body can “direct” their anabolic actions.

    I could be wrong but hasn't lievinthenow advocated using compound movements followed by pulse reps in a post earlier in this thread?

    Isn't that exactly what we all do in the 5s? (or possibly a burn set rather than partials).

    So aren't we already doing that but combining it with increasing load to stay ahead of rbe.

    Or to put it another way, isn't lievinthennow unknowingly advocating hst unless he believes you're better off not increasing the weight you use and training less frequently even though you can handle traninig more frequently....?

    No, unfortunately we're not a cult like the JReps advocates. Although, I could go for a glass of koolaid right now.

    I don't think we're disagreeing with that statement. To be quite honest, I don't think we are disagreeing with you at all...

    You are right! Bryan Hayford has done a lot of research, collected many studies, and laid out some simple principals to change the mindset of people who follow traditional HIT.

    As far as comparing Cutler and Coleman's training to the success of HST. They can be directly linked as I know Coleman uses HST principals. He also uses steroids, and with the help of the juice no matter what program, techniques, or routine you follow as long as you are lifting you will grow.

    Thanks for that lesson on how not to perform an experiment.

    Now control for all other variables that will influence blood measures of hormones.

    Then try and associate any of these blood measures with growth.

    Good luck

    Kramer etal have been trying to do this for years and have shown 2 things

    Waht a sad ending to the troll [​IMG]

    I was pretty much enjoying this thread.

    LITN was explaining and unexplaing HST, he got somewhere close, agreed that HST is sound and even explained some of the techniques we use, then did a 180 turn around and started ranting about GH, yadayadayada........... ;)

    I was hoping that as a personal trainer he would be a little more open minded and read some of the other articles besides the vanilla method which indeed is for neophytes [​IMG] although still very much a necessity to get people into the mindset of HST principles.

    All he ranted on in the beggining we do too....pulses, metabolic sets, drop sets, etc.

    There is also a variety of 5 day and even 6 day training programs he could grab but then again being a personal trainer he should be able to devise a fairly good one with all his favourites, instead he is still advocating split training [​IMG]

    LITN - you are cordially invited to try out HST on a 5 day program, full body each day, with as much volume as you see fit and then come back to us with some real research findings so that we can enlarge our already successful database with more glory! [​IMG]

    The funny thing is that you obviously dont know enough about research to differentiate between PHYSIOLOGICAL levels of hormones and SUPRA-PHYSIOLOGICAL levels achieved by drug therapy.

    plus a whole heap of other stupid that you dont appear to grasp.

    Perhaps he should create a web site for his X Men, explain his principles and provide the scientific research to back them up, give some sample routines, articles, etc. Then he can create a Forum for everyone to talk about X Men. Then he wouldn't have to be here?

    that just shows how stupid you are.

    the term hst expert is because of the number of posts I have, not because I have an exceptional knowledge of HST or that I am contracted by bryan (which I am not)
