Due to popular demand, I'm going to dedicate this thread to all things Hell Raiser Training Solo. Those without a training partner that take on the iron alone, but want to experience the benefits of HRT.
Solo Hell Raiser Training is based on Split Set Training with Negatives (SST/N). The individual performs in this case 8 positive reps and follows them immediately with 6 negative reps (8+6), unlike Hell Raiser Training with Hellcentrics which is 8+4. With SST/N it's necessary to put the muscles through a couple more negative reps to come close to emptying the tank since there are no extreme forced reps involved which completely exhaust the muscle under load. After performing the initial 8 reps in the positive portion of the movement you will still perform the negatives at a steady rate of a 5 count. You will still choose a weight thats between 60 and 80% of your 1 rep max and remember this is just a guide for determining the right weight to choose. You can increase or decrease the weight based on how well you are able to perform the exercise on any given lift.
So if you've been wanting to give Hell Raiser Training a test drive and don't have a training partner, now's your chance. Unlike HRT with Hellcentrics, you can start right away and do not need to have a minimum of 2 years experience in the gym or a training partner. You can reap the benefits starting today.
You can perform the same routine as outlined in the video series. 2 sets of 8 + 6 for each lift performed.
