BUILDING STRENGTH

Updated: Sep 23

Achieving muscle growth is much more difficult than I first thought. Quite a few terms once understood offer a way forward.


  1. Calories,

  2. Training programs,

  3. Consistency

  4. Regularity of intervals,

  5. Nutrients,

  6. Macros,

  7. Hypertrophy,

  8. Sarcomeres,

  9. Neuronal adaption

  10. Muscular system.


Getting a grasp on these aspects seems logical to achieve maximum performance and growth.



Muscle Growth


Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy: the volume of sarcoplasmic fluid in the muscle cell increases with no accompanying increase in muscular strength.


Myofibrillar hypertrophy: actin and myosin contractile proteins increase in number and add to muscular strength as well as a small increase in the size of the muscle.
