Start experimenting now. You may love it and it may make you grow like a weed or you might hate it and find it a waste of time. I've had a lot of success with high reps and lots of TUT. Try throwing a few high rep sets in at the end of a workout for a lagging muscle and see what happens

Okay, will do thanks.

I thank God for my squat/DL #s and my relative lack of quad development

Ya fuck hip flexors. Mine are giant and no one cares, they are also a pain in the ass because they get super tight. I've been spending the past 20 minutes jamming a lacross ball into them so they can relax.
Huge hip flexors and hip flexor tightness was basically why I crossed over to the aesthetics side.

Yea. I've spent a ton of time researching ways to keep my hips / back healthy, I think I'll always be able to maintain a decent squat and deadlift because of this. But the time obsessing over that stuff could be spent focusing on bicep and delt development.

I questioned the writer's understanding of what powerlifting training is. In most cases, bodybuilders use powerlifting principles and vice versa so the divide is not as clear cut in my opinion as the writer makes it out to be. That said, "full" bodybuilding training will probably make you gain more size while training geared more towards powerlifting will make you stronger. Just align the training with your goals. 

Aligning training with your goals is great if you have experience. Novice lifters are being told barebones programs with hardly any accessory work will make them look like arnold. Two years later and they look like potatoes and have a decent squat and deadlift.

I know that you mean, but in my opinion that is a misinformation problem, not a problem related to aligning training with their goals. I think that training in general just has too much information that is either bad, misunderstood, or read by the wrong audience.

I agree. The internet has given new lifters an over abundance of information.

This is my beef. Big arms and a big total are equally silly goals. They dont really mean anything. But they are fun to pursue.

Big arms gets you money and pussy.

My body (or more likely brain) felt the imminent cheat day and had to earn it. Today I tried my 1RM on deadlift and pulled 308 lbs at 152 lbs body weight. Finally came over the 2xBW point. I might have pulled a wee bit more but didn't feel like stretching luck. That was actually my goal for June.

So yes. I'm still weak sauce but I'm happy I'm making progress while cutting.
