    layne norton's power/hypertrophy routine

    has anyone used this routine? I was thinking about going on it for a few months to see what kind of gains in size and mass I could make while also raising my big 3 maxes....and i was wondering what you all thought of this routine?

    is it too intense? seems like those hypertrophy days would be a killer

    I just started this routine yesterday. Seems like it will be fun to do both rep ranges every week.

    Looks like it would be a good bodybuilding routine, but lacks as far as a powerlifting routine goes, but thats the price you pay for trying to do both. Obviously it won't be ideal for one.

    Lifting relatively low rep ranges twice a week does NOT make a routine a strenghth or powerlifting one. You have to look at the overall program design as well as the program over several months rather than week to week. This is simply a program that uses two rep ranges to increase general muscularity and strength, it is not a powerlifting routine at all.

    The people saying you 'work on both strengh and hypertrophy so neither is amazing' are talking crap. Just do the program and you'll be fine.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    you'll want to start with the volume lower and staying 1-2 reps shy of failure for the first few weeks so your body can adjust to the increased frequency & volume. Then as you get less and less sore you can up the volume & intensity. Keep in mind this is not nessecarily the routine I recommend specifically for you. All the clients I work with get different variences of these sorts of routines, the one listed is just someone else's interpretation of my theories as an example, though they have done a nice job.
