Hey guys so I have a basic question, mostly for people like EK and Nor but anyone who has a opinion or knowledge on the subject please feel free to put your input in. So I have been weightlifting for six years or so, have had tons of setbacks and injuries along the way. Basically my question is, do you think it would be smart to run a program like westside barbell for lets say 6 months and get my strength numbers up and then after I get my numbers up I can go back to my bodybuilding program and due to the higher weight i will be able to put more mass on? I understand if you dont understand the question, but if you do give me your opinions

Haha for real though. I think you should do more of linear progression strength routine like me. EK cam correct me if I'm wrong but Westside is more for elite powerlifters that actually have specific weaknesses they need to work on. For example like lock out on bench. Since we are in the pretty similar strength area I think you would respend better to something like 5/3/1. I know its helping me a shit ton.

@Zyzzst Why don't you stick to a bodybuilding routine, but up the frequency by using say an upper/lower split. And then run 2 power and 2 hyp days a week. Just train short of failure on Hyp days and hit the power days hard. You'll get your strength gains, and still keep your higher rep/bodybuilding work too. Win win. But my name is not EK . Maybe he will advise something better haha

Don't be a baby back bitch! Jk, but for real...
Do more mobility work, ever since I've added it in to my daily routine I have been for the most part injury free.
Like Brian said, why would you stick to just a hypertrophy routine? Unless you like being flat with no density..
Combine the two and get the best of both worlds.

maybe somone else has some insight on this but ive done only pl routines (granted i threw in some extra arn sessions) for say the last 8 months and i havent seen reason to go back to a good ole bb split. My strength has increased steadily and so has my size and conditioning. I think it just comes down to personal preference. Do wht u like buddy

As long as are under progressive overload and are eating enough you will see changes to your body comp, doesn't matter what routine you are running.

@wannabemuscular actually I ruptured my back playing football, messed up my shoulder in basketball and knees are worn down from 8 years of basketball. Sooooo yeaaaa I don't think any injury was weightlifting related but thanks for the comment

Look at Pudiawnowski...

would you say its possible to make the same amount of muscle gains on a strength/power lifting programme as on a hypo split?
