Muscle hypertrophy is a muscle enlargement, which can be helpful for you in producing greater force.
It is most valuable for athletes, who are mostly concerned with performance in certain events, which require more strength and power.
However, resistance training can improve your muscle growth and it is very essential for you to frame a proper workout in order to meet your goal. There are two important things which you need to know during this muscle hypertrophy.
First one is, up to what extent cellular adaptations can be responsible for muscle hypertrophy and the other is the type of resistance which you need to engage yourself in order to ensure maximum muscle hypertrophy.
Contributions at cellular level to get maximum muscle hypertrophy:
Before you undergo any training for muscle hypertrophy, it is very essential for you to know what’s happening inside the deeper layers of muscles, so that you can workout better to get desired muscle growth.
Small actins and myosin filaments are the main protein elements responsible for your muscle contraction, which combine together to create a cross sliding bridges to produce greater force.
More than thousands of these filaments are present inside your muscle fibers, which mainly contribute for your muscle enlargement. The more the cross bridges are attached, the greater the force will be produced and therefore your power output capabilities are also increased.
Weight training can improve your muscle hypertrophy!
The exercise which you practice must be specific to your desired type of strength or growth in your muscle. Some of the exercises which will help you in improving your muscular hypertrophy is given here.
- Power clean
- Shoulder press
- Lat pull downs
- Bicep curls
- Leg press
- Triceps press
- Lower back extensions
Volume exercise is the main key for muscle development!
Muscle hypertrophy mainly requires more number of repetitions and can be most efficiently produced through high volume exercises. Volume in simple terms is nothing but the number of sets of a specific exercise multiplied with repetitions.
This type of training requires a very low intensity when compared with your actual resistance. Constant use of sets and reps can help your body in stimulating and increasing your muscle mass and strength.
Choose a physical trainer who is having experience and also proper knowledge of most predominant muscular exercises and try to improve your muscular strength.
