I know its an old concept, but its kinda makes sense to me. I have lifted for awhile now and done the extremes of both types of training. Very high intensity to low volume training and seen moderate results. So I need to find a middle ground, just like most endo-mesomorphs, something that incorporates a high intensity workout with a variety of lifts and sets, but also small enough to not overtrain and burnout. All of this sounds like I'm a endo-mesomorph, because I can lose and gain muscle and weight, but not that much (maybe 3 pounds of solid muscle after a routine). So any advice for my body type? Ive been training for awhile now and can handle alot of stress, but that doesnt mean its the best for me.

Have you tried HST? http://www.hypertrophy-specific.com/hst_index.html - You can read about it there.Lifting Log: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=147159883

Yea ive tried it, but I still dont get great results. I kinda feel that 3 days a week is not enough, but 4 would best. Also HST calls for a greater emphasis on compound movements, and not so much on iso b/c of the recommended time requirement, under a hour. Because of this I feel like Im not getting as good results, as if I did more isos. Any help?
