    L.N. Power/Hypertrophy?


    hey again. i posted something recently about a good bulking program while i do an 8-week epitest prohormone cycle. im 24 and been working out for about 2 years, pretty much always split routines or volume training. im excited about layne nortons power/hypertrophy workout, but i have a few concerns in general and want some opinions from more experienced heads.

    **** my recovery in general is awesome, and on prohormones my recovery is insane. plus, my friends have done it and told me that the power upper/lower day doesnt really make you sore much. therefore, my change in layne nortons is to condense it from 5 days out of 7 to 4 days out of 5. the original workout can be found here..

    Repeat, so 4 days on, 1 day off, repeat, etc.

    The main concern is rest days .. I think my muscles can handle it and so can I, I always go hard at the gym thats how i workout, but will it really stop the growth with lack of rest days? I will be getting plenty of sleep, best diet, water, etc ..

    thanks in advance for all opinions.

    I do a modified version of this workout for my cycle workouts. I keep the 5 of 7 days, but I add more sets or do more isolation movements of certain muscle groups depending on what day it is.
