We know naturals do not have the same volumizing support that enhanced bodybuilders get from PED's.

This meals less sarcoplasmic adaptation (growth).


Training in higher rep ranges for sarcoplasmic growth will just not be nearly as beneficial.

There is only so much recovery capability a natural will have and you are best placing your focus on myofibril growth.


The way to do this is train heavier. Now what does heavy mean? It means optimizing nervous system activation/response as well as training the muscles to insure your strength is maximized. The stronger you get the heavier you can work in a higher, more hypertrophy geared rep range.

I would either work back and forth in phases over periods of time (can shift same week, weekly or monthly), or i would try to incorporate both strength and hypertrophy work in each workout.

My personal suggestion would be a period of strength training similar to how a powerlifter would lift (approach, not lifts) then move to hypertrophy phases to take advantage of the new strength in a higher rep range (8-12) and also to give joints/tendons a break.
