Increased Satellite Cell Number is Associated With Higher Responders to Resistance Training in Young, Untrained Women

The hypertrophic response to resistance training is highly variable between individuals, potentially due to the magnitude of the myofibrillar protein synthetic response, increase in ribosome content, and increase in satellite cell number. This is the first paper to examine these variables in relationship to hypertrophic outcomes in young, untrained women.

Your core muscles serve a pivotal function, and targeting these muscles can transfer to enhanced performance in a variety of lifts. Read this article to deepen your understanding of the core’s function for performance and get programming recommendations for targeting your core musculature.

Can You Drop (Set) Weight for Gains?

Drop sets are enjoyable, time efficient, and according to a new meta-analysis, lead to similar hypertrophy and strength gains as traditional sets. So, are drop sets all you need? This article tackles that question from every angle.

Is Regional Hypertrophy Predictable?

The idea that regional hypertrophy is normal and can be manipulated with exercise selection is now well established. However, the question remains, can we predict longitudinal regional hypertrophy outcomes with acute measures like EMG and muscle swelling?

Optimizing Bulking Diets To Facilitate Hypertrophy

However, weight gain is an equally valid and important diet goal, and should be approached just as strategically. This article discusses how to construct an optimized bulking diet.
