Has anyone tried one of Doug Hepburn's programs? I came across an old Mike Mahler Article on tnation and even though Mike Mahler describes a full body routine instead of the upper/lower splits Hepburn recommended the basic progression seems to be the same. Here are the two programs: A Program Power (strength): do 8 sets of 2 with a weight you can lift 8 times and work up to 8 sets of 3 adding 1 rep per workout Pump (hypertrophy): reduce weight by 20% and do 3 sets of 6. Work up to 3 sets of 8 B Program Power (strength): do 5 sets of 1 with a weight you can lift for 3 reps and work up to 8 sets of 1 Pump (hypertrophy): do 6 sets of 3 with a weight you can lift 8 times and work up to 6 sets of 5 As I said, Doug Hepburn recommended upper lower splits that looked something like this: Lower: Squat, Bent Over Row, Deadlift Upper: Bench, Curl, Overhead Press Looks very sensible to me. Has anyone tried it or something like it? I like the combination of heavier weights for low reps and medium weights for medium reps to get more volume in.
