    Default Best style of training program for muscle growth

    Hello, I'm currently doing my A Levels and decided to do a project on muscle growth and training as a whole. My whole project is based around the concept of strength vs hypertrophy style training programs for muscle growth and was just wondering if I could get some first hand experiences from users who have been lifting for much longer times than myself.
    Simply just wondering what style of training do you prefer and what have you found to work best for yourself in terms of building muscle naturally when in a slight surplus.

    Strength is somewhat irrelevant in my project due to me just focusing on putting on lean muscle mass.

    Thank You

    The literature suggests there isn’t much difference in results between lower rep, heavier “strength” focused training and traditional hypertrophy routines in therms of lean body mass gains. One isn’t “better.” Largely comes down to personal preference.
    Don’t chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet that’s going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    Sure.
