    Thanks, well I can thank my dad for my legs, they're always naturally bigger than the rest of me, and they grow without much doing

    But my biceps are a different thing altogether

    I'll then shred up with interval sprints. My diet is pretty good now, I eat every 2-3 hours, and I'm not really gaining any fat, waist has stayed around the +- 1/2 inch side for the last 4 months

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Great progress!
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Thanks guys

    About the Bicep thing, one thing I noticed is that most of my muscles have fairly good fibre length, except my biceps and forearms which have a longer tendon, ie less actual muscle area. My biceps would have a good peak if I ever get them big enough and me lean enough, in a Franco Columbo sorta way. But because they are short, they'll never be Arnold/Sergio like

    I can see a prominant peak in the mirror, but it doesn't seem to come across in photos though
    Right now my calves are an inch bigger than my arms...but my arms are growing faster than my calves thank goodness

    My wrist is 6.75 BTW

    Well I actually have a very small waist, but that's also where I store most of my fat, so right now its at 33 inches. When I'm lean its about 29 inches and 27 or so when I'm shredded

    Yeah, he used HST combined with some other stuff. Here's a thread over at the HST forums covering what he did:
    http://www.hypertrophy-specific.com/...=ST;f=11;t=605

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Pretty much standard periodization fare.....the 3 week modified HST cycle served as a "concentrated loading," allowing a better adaptation to the strength/power training occuring during the period of delayed training effect.

    As for the idea laid out of doing 6-week HST cycle followed by a 6-week strength/power routine, I think that would be excellent. The period of the DTE lasts roughly the period of the concentrated loading, so you'd quite possible obtain quite lucrative gains.
