That's awesome that you experienced something similar. It's a great feeling.

40 DAYS TO GET BIG

Tuesday

HFS 4x5

Deadlift 321
OH Press 127.5
Squat 235

Squat
235x5, 2 additional sets
235x10

1 Arm OH Rope Press

-----

I think this will conclude my 2 week experiment with HFS. I liked it a lot and I have had more 200+ pound (bodyweight) days since trying it which feels good and tells me it was a change I needed. My legs are fine, but my left arm is starting to take a beating from all of the pressing. I will likely return to my upper/lower split with some really light HFS thrown in. For example, I might throw in some light squats after an upper session, I have found that my form and my confidence are both increasing by doing the lifts on such a high frequency so I want to still reap some of the benefits of HFS while toning it down a bit. I could tell my arm was about 1 week away from having to ditch the bench press like I did in December 2010 after too much pressing. With a contest diet starting in 40 days, last thing I need is an injury.

Good squatting, I'm assuming the hip isn't bugging you anymore?

No, hip is good. I am thrilled!

Occasionally, it will feel slightly sore, but considering I squatted 15 times in the last 14 days, I am not stressing a little soreness.
