HST - quick question

Hey

I’m planning to try the HST program during my off-season.

After a quick readthrough a question has occured.

During the final week it says: ex “neg x 2” what does the neg mean?

Can anyone explain : slight_smile:

Hi Frederik,

Those are “negative reps.” That is when you only perform the eccentric portion of the lift (e.g. squatting down, but not standing back up or allowing a barbell to lower in the bench press, but not lifting it back up).

You can learn a bit more about them here: https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/betteru19.htm
