HSS-100 Program: A Few Questions!
I've been looking for a new routine for a while now and didn't just want to settle for any old routine, considering there's thousands of them out there. I came across HSS-100 & immediately thought "this is the one for me". I have a couple of questions though, and would be extremely greatful if anybody could answer them for me:
- In the article shown above about HSS-100 it gives an example of a training split at the bottom, which suggests training 5 days a week. I was just wondering if there was any way to split it into 3 days a week instead of 5? I mean does it HAVE to be 5 days a week, or can it be 3? If it CAN be 3, would you mind letting me know how it would look? E.g. maybe Back/Biceps, Chest/Triceps, Legs/Shoulders? Something like that?
- For the last 4 weeks it suggests mainly working on strength (Max Strength Phase). I am a little concerned that working mainly on strength for 4 weeks will cause me to lose muscle mass & be in a catabolic state. Is there any reason to worry?
- And last of all, for the "special exercise" there are a lot of them listed a person could use. Do I HAVE to pick one of them for the special exercise? If I was just to pick another normal exercise, I take it that it wouldn't be considered a "special" exercise & therefore would defeat the whole object? It's just that I've never heard of some of the "special" exercises listed and am a little sceptical, as I'm sure you can appreciate.
Thanks a lot for looking and I'll await some responses.
