Hi, I've started to follow the workouts a few days ago. Just wanted to clarify what HS is?
Jeremy 2014-06-04
Bruce, it's heavy single. Find a heavy single then do the other reps based on a percentage of the heavy single.

Thanks, a little more help please.
Isn't the have single same as the maximum or PR then?

Bruce -

A heavy single is like a max for that day - it may not be anywhere near your current PR, or it could be a new PR. The real difference between an HS and a true max is that you're not peaked/tapered for an HS, so you're not usually expecting a PR, and you shouldn't be trying to kill yourself trying to make a certain lift - do what you can do that day and live to train the next day.
