    By strength routine do you mean training in a low (3-5) rep range?
    I've always trained for hypertrophy since the beginning and for most people, including myself, thats the 6-12 rep range.
    I do like doing some heavy sets for strength on squats and deads though

    no, but I should have.

    it wasn't until 1 1/2 years after I started "lifting" that I did starting strength.

    put at least 50lbs on all my lifts and gained 20lbs in a few months. then I cut and was lookin juicy. that was 1 1/2 years ago.

    I was super fat prior to discovering BB but just went ahead on a cut and the 4-5 day split programs that the Scivation guys made. Worked in a sense that I lost weight but I could barely bench 95lbs. Several years later I'm now just chubby and slightly built. I'm on starting strength and I've been plateauing at a 1 plate bench now. Meh, atleast my deadlift is at 275lbs..
    Greatness from small beginnings.
