Do you ever ask yourself, how do I get Muscular? Stronger?

Here are the facts!

Muscle hypertrophy (growth) refers to the process of increasing muscle size, which is often associated with an increase in muscle strength and mass. At the cellular level, muscle hypertrophy is primarily caused by an increase in the size and number of myofibrils. Resistance training in particular, is a potent stimulus for muscle hypertrophy, as it causes muscle fibers to experience tension and damage, which stimulates the production of new muscle proteins and the growth of muscle fibers. Here are three important factors to consider when aiming to increase muscle size and hypertrophy:

First, progressive overload is key. This means continually challenging your muscles by increasing the weight, reps, or sets performed over time. By gradually increasing the workload, you can stimulate muscle growth and hypertrophy.

Second, nutrition is essential. Consuming enough protein to support muscle growth, as well as carbohydrates and healthy fats, can help provide energy and nutrients to fuel workouts and support recovery. Eating whole, nutrient-dense foods can help ensure you’re getting the necessary vitamins and minerals to support muscle growth.

Third, recovery is crucial. Allowing your muscles adequate rest and recovery time between workouts is essential for muscle growth and hypertrophy. Getting enough sleep and taking rest days can help your muscles repair and grow.

In summary, muscle hypertrophy requires a combination of progressive overload, proper nutrition, and adequate recovery to achieve muscle growth and size. By focusing on these three factors, you can optimize your training and nutrition to achieve your goals. To create a customised training plan, call the clinic to book in a session.
