In this article, we’re going extremely deep into the science comparing different training frequencies and splits for muscle hypertrophy.Read More
Should you train a muscle with a higher frequency to consistently spike muscle protein synthesis and thereby keep yourself more anabolic.
Using the current science, we’ll assess this.Read More
In this article, we aim to figure out if you’re missing out on more muscle growth by not changing your exercises every session.Read More
With the same exercise, performing it one way can produce drastically more muscle hypertrophy than performing it another way.
This is because the current data demonstrate that the length you train a muscle at can profoundly influence the amount of hypertrophy produced.Read More
For maximizing hypertrophy, should low, moderate, or high repetition numbers be used?
Well, as we’ve mentioned in other articles, there’s a great number of studies finding loads between 80% one-rep max and 30% one-rep max produce similar muscle hypertrophy, so long as repetitions are performed to or very close to failure.Read More
Partial range of motion bench presses. Do they help build more full range of motion bench press strength, and do they have any benefit for muscle hypertrophy?Read More
There are probably an infinite number of ways to train for hypertrophy.
Broadly, most people seem to perform the same weekly workouts, at least for a few months.
But, alternatively, an individual could randomly change their training variables across workouts.Read More
In this article, we aim to establish whether you’re missing out on superfast gains by not performing superslow training.
Traveling back to the 1980s, it’s claimed an individual named Ken Hutchins, upon conducting resistance training research on older women with fragile bones, developed superslow training.Read More
Progressive overload is necessary for making long-term hypertrophy and strength gains. Simply, it refers to progressing your training sessions in some way.Read More
Anyone that’s resistance-trained most likely has felt the pump.
Simply, it’s where the whole muscle temporarily increases in size due to an accumulation of fluid within it.Read More
