          Awesome to hear. I've actually made a few adjustments to the program over the last few years since the original HOSS was printed here. I will eventually get around to posting the changes Ok guys

          • Basically when I'm doing 3x10 or 4x10-8, is a static weight for all sets or no?

            stiff leg deadlifts: 1x15, 3x10
            standing calf raise: 3x30+
            standing barbell curls: 1x15, 4x10

            I like to stay with a static weight but you need to be VERY realistic in picking it and if you pick a weight that's too light then of course increase it for the workout you are doing and learn from this and raise the weight the next workout to the weight you used

            So for stiff legs I use 135x15 and then I go to 225 for 4x10
            I switched to leg press calf presses instead of standing and I superset seated calf raises. on the leg press I use 4 plates/side for my 3x30 and for the seated ones I use 4x45's for the 4x10


            The idea is to be realistic and chose a weight that for the either 3x10 or 4x10 you getting the 10 reps for the first and second sets....then struggling around 8 reps for the third set but You dig deep and get the 10 reps and then for the fourth set you struggle around 6 and might only get 8 or 9. Thats OK though as once you are getting all 10 reps....increase the weight!!!

              • After getting some personal crap and nagging injuries in order, I jumped back into HOSS today. I felt so sick performing deadlifts and it felt great! I love this program and I'm glad to be on it again! I can't wait for those adjustments to come up!
