Bryan Haycock is the creator of hypertrophy specific training or HST for short. In this episode, we take a deep dive into:



  • Exactly what goes into HST, including what actually causes muscles to grow
  • The principles of program design for hypertrophy
  • The mistakes most gym goers are making when it comes to training for size
  • The misunderstood concept of strategic deconditioning and having science prove him right 20 years after he developed the concepts behind HST
