Re: conditioning while in a hypertrophy program.

Get on an actual bodybuilding program and do a couple of WODs per week for conditioning. Now, what is an actual bodybuilding program? I am glad you asked. In order to maximize hypertrophy you need to have the majority of your working sets be in the 8-12 range for upper body and 10-15 range for the lower body. You want to take your sets to, or close to concentric failure. Utilize controlled repetitions and train for the "pump". The other side of hypertophy training is you have to consume sufficient cals to fuel it.
