Muscle Growth; Muscle Size; Lean Mass…Hypertrophy. These days everyone seems to want to gain some muscle. This is something that we have been recommending since TNT first began. Getting stronger and adding quality muscle to your body is something that almost everyone can and should be trying to do. For most people adding and or maintaining muscle means not only improved metabolic health, but it makes everything that we do in our activities of daily living easier.
For competitive athletes one of the primary benefits of adding lean mass is injury prevention which can also at times equate to career longevity. In some cases, even relatively small improvements in hypertrophy might be the difference between winning and losing in competition for these athletes as well.
In this weeks podcast episode #106 we discuss The International Journal Of Strength And Conditioning Position Paper titled: Resistance Training Recommendations To Maximize Hypertrophy In An Athletic Population. Join us as we dig into the latest research on gaining muscle. We discuss recommendations on training Load, Volume, Frequency, Rest Intervals, and Set End Point.
We will help you sift through this seemingly complex topic and give you some simple ideas on how and where to begin your own strength training journey to maximize quality lean muscle mass (Hypertrophy).
Remember to keep a training log and write stuff down along the way. This will not only help to insure that you are being progressive with your training, but allow you to check back every few weeks to see what seems to be working for you, and just as important, what doesn’t.
