comment Better for arm growth to train arms on the same day as squats?
Some great recommendations, but I can't comment on it all due to the limit of the comment box. Regarding the question in my post: My understanding is that since squats and deadlifts activate such large parts of the body at once, they trigger a release of hormones in the body (unlike most other exercises, which I hardly break a sweat from doing); and it makes sense to me that one should exercise body parts one wants to grow at this time, rather than a day or two later. This is the question to which I'd like a clear "yes", "it doesn't matter" or "no one knows".

This is precisely what I wanted to know! That "stair stepping" method sounds interesting, and I think I will employ it.

Neither of those programs are geared toward hypertrophy though. And your chart clearly states that hypertrophy lies in the interval around 10 repetitions.

I don't think this answers my bolded question. Apparently people can be strong without being large, but can the converse hold? Can you build muscle efficiently despite not gaining strength quickly? (Regarding compound exercises: that's a question for another thread, but I'm already doing most of the exercises you listed.)
