I do a 4 day week upper/lower workout, 50/50 balance in terms of volume of strength (3-5) and hypertrophy (8-10) work. Now what I have noticed is that my poundages have been going up on every exercise consistently when Im doing exercises/sessions for strength but struggling a lot more for poundage increases on my hypertrophy exercises/sessions. Obviously I am aware that you are more likely to generate poundage increases with pure strength work but the difference is quite noticeable. My bodyweight is the highest its ever been and although I have gained a little fat, its really not that bad. The weird thing is that although I have got bigger in terms of lean muscle it doesnt seem proportionate to my weight gain (bone density perhaps??) Am I just naturally geared towards strength work or is the fact that I do a mixture of strength and hypertrophy work causing issues? Its a curious one because my overall program is exactly 50/50 spread between the two. ???
