Whether you have been an avid “lifter” or just getting started on your Fitness journey, aiming to lose Body Fat or Tighten and Tone the physique; ONE GREAT Dilemma remains the “how to” of maximizing muscle growth and preservation. Often I see my clients trying crazy deprivation diets & extreme methods of exercise to create progress, but this can only have an adverse effect.
The Truth is, Growing as well as Preserving skeletal muscle simply requires GREAT DISCIPLINE & is not as complicated as the Fitness Industry would have you believe! It is however very important to distinguish between increasing the number of muscle fibers (Hyperplasty) & increase in size of the existing Muscle fibers (Hypertrophy).
In this blog I will focus on Hypertrophy as well as Muscle Fiber maintenance (preservation) considering Hyperplasty is not a necessity for the general public.
