    So, is there a John Smith hypertrophy program? A program in which the results are just hypertrophy, regardless if it is functional or not.

    Highly unlikely. JS trains people specifically for different sports, so hes not about programs that just add weight to be bigger. If you are looking for a pure hypertrophy program, check out the training section for HST. There have been a few threads in the past week or so about it.

    Thats very true.

    BUT the 5x5 will put a lot of muscle on you, its very effective at that. Of course, it is very functional muscle...but thats never a bad thing. :)

    That story about your injuries and how you recovered is more than inspirational. I feel more inspired from that story than I do watching Rocky 4 the training scene.
    Thank you for all this good info.

    Thanks Neo! That was very helpful and will make for much easier reading. Props to you for taking the time to break some of those long articles into easy reading material.

    Instead of keeping the "revised" articles as a reply, I edited my original posts to use your version.
