I have decided to start Layne Norton "Power/Hypertrophy" training program because I am taking my training more seriously now. I have been working out for about year and a half, took 16 weeks off for fire academy, I feel that I could make some serious gains if I start logging everything and actually using a workout routine that has been proven to work. In the past I have just floundered around in the gym doing a 5 day split hitting everything until failure. I would also avoid the major compound lifts, looking back now I wish I could kick my own ass for skipping the compound lifts for the last year.
My goals with this program are overall strength and mass gains with a focus on those major lifts; deadlifts, squats, benchpress.
