What I was trying to get at was that most people go wrong when they think their focus is on “hypertrophy” (whatever that means) because they start worrying about all these numbers, percentages, and ridiculous training philosophies.
It is a red flag when someone says “I don’t care if my strength isn’t goin to increase on this program”
Reason being, if your goal is muscle gains, the focus of your training needs to be gains in strength. (although, these should probably be pushed into a moderate rep range rather than triples, doubles, and singles which is what you may have been referring to).
The ideal split for gaining muscle is going to be the one that organizes the exercises that work best for your body in terms of targetting the intended muscle groups and rapidly gaining strength, over the course of several days without causing too much overlapping stimulation, with the highest frequency you can handle without overtraining.
So the question is, do you know what exercises are right for your body?[/quote]
what he means is that he’s looking for a program that focuses on aesthetics rather than strength.
you grow when you get stronger, you get stronger when you grow, we got it. he asked for a hypertrophy program, not a run on lecture.
