In this day and age there is really no reason why people should be afraid of science. Science is what makes our world go round. Not only is science an integral part of our modern world, but it is the very foundation of any effective method for building muscle. So, we created theHS:Report to increase our readers awareness of the science behind modern training, diet, and supplementation.In 1978 I began lifting weights and drinking protein drinks. Decades ago, gyms were anything but high-tech. I remember one of the first gyms I trained at was in the back of an old laundromat. Most of the equipment was homemade (not to be confused with “custom made”) and rickety. Anything made of iron had a good layer of rust. It was dark, it was musty, and it smelled like old gym clothes that for some reason still unbeknownst to me were never actually washed.Man I used to bust my butt in that gym, dreaming of the day when I would look like Arnold and Lou. After my workouts I’d go home, pop in a rented copy of Pumping Iron (you couldn’t actually buy it yet) in the machine and throw back a horrendous tasting protein drink made by the Master Blaster himself. As I’d watch Arnold and Ed grimacing under the squat bar, I’d take a swig of the Blaster’s brew and you would’ve sworn by the grimace on my own face that I had just finished a “squat till you puke” set of squats right along with them. But you know what they used to say, no pain no gain. I just figured gagging down nasty protein drinks was just part of the commitment.
Well, times have changed. I no longer workout in the back of an old laundromat, and I no longer gag down awful tasting protein drinks, but I’ve never lost my passion for bodybuilding and supplements. On the contrary, it has become my life’s quest to find out all that can be known about building muscle. Along the way I’ve spent countless hours in the gym, a small fortune on supplements, and 10 years in college just to make sure I didn’t overlook any of the finer details.
What was the result of this life spent on bodybuilding? Well, I’ve had the good fortune of training some really great competitors, writing for a few of the best bodybuilding magazines ever, consulting for some really great companies, and the high point of it all…was the chance to publish HST to the world and create the best supplements yet made.
When I published HST, I never imagined the effect it would have. Don’t get me wrong, I knew without any doubt it was the most effective way to build size quickly, I just didn’t think people would listen. To my pleasant surprise, it has sent out a wave of change that has covered the globe and produced literally thousands of pounds of muscle. And the supplements, well, they are something I am very proud of.
My goal with HST and the HS:APS has always been muscle hypertrophy, period. TheAdvanced Protein System (APS) was designed according to the absolute latest research on the anabolic effects of protein and training. Although research has led to some controversy as to exactly how much protein an athlete needs on a daily basis, there is no question about the need for protein immediately before and after your workouts.(1-5) So I gathered the highest quality proteins available and I designed a protein system that would lead to the greatest uptake of amino acids each and every workout, thus producing the fastest muscle growth possible without a prescription.
The results had by users of HST and the HS:APS have proven their effectiveness.
Here is a sample:
“Ok, today I finished my second cycle fifth week (5’s). My results seem too good to be true. Get ready for this: So in two cycles with a length of two and a half months I gained 7.5 kilos (16.5 pounds), and my waist went increased only 1.5cm! Bryan if you want to use my post as proof that HST works please do!”
“Just did my measurements following the 15s of my full body cycle of HST. Man, it is going insane, sure I know that some of the gains will be local swelling from the constant training, but I doubt that it totals all of it.
Bodyweight 93.6 to 95.5kg
LBM 77.6 to 79.1kg
Loads are feeling good, only just reached failure in one exercise (bench) and am getting psyched to get my lbm over 80kg, possibly even to the great 181lb mark (82.5kg) and all this with a constant cold that my kids gave me. Excellent stuff”
“Hi Bryan, I have just finished my first HST cycle and am very pleased with the results, to say the least. I have gained 8.8 pounds, put on 1″ on my arms, 1.6″ on my thighs and 0.8″ on my calves (even though I didn’t train them directly). My strength has gone up noticeably as well. I can now power clean the weights that I used to deadlift!”
As always, Hypertrophy-Specific Training is FREE to everybody. Add Primer and Driver to your program and you can’t make faster gains without a syringe! I’m not kidding. The science has finally reached a point where real muscle gains in only a matter of weeks are possible. HSN and HST are the embodiment of that science.
Come to www.Hypertrophy-Specific.com and set up your HST program and get yourself the Primer and Driver Advanced Protein System. I guarantee you will see improvements that will change the way you train and the supplements you use forever.
