Many people seek to increase size and muscle strength, and start looking for activities that contribute to this goal. Whether for bodybuilding, to improve performance in sports or even for aesthetics, several workouts can cause this desired increase.
In addition to weight training , however, there are other fundamental issues when looking for muscle growth and definition, such as an adequate diet, an appropriate training routine, adequate sleep, among other factors.
This process that muscles go through to grow is called hypertrophy. In this text, we will better understand how it happens, what factors influence muscle growth and what diet and supplements can contribute. Come on?
Muscle hypertrophy is the name given to the growth of muscle size. This is a consequence of the increase in the volume of muscle cells, caused by an adaptation of them in the face of a greater demand for work.
This means that in order to achieve hypertrophy it is necessary to exercise the muscles beyond normal in intense training, so that they adapt to support the effort.
In addition to the need for intense physical exercise (usually weight training), there are two essential factors: an adequate diet and rest.
Rest is essential for the muscles to recover from the micro injuries caused in training. It is precisely during this recovery that they increase in size
It is also important to make a selection of exercises that allow different muscles to intercalate, giving everyone time to go through the process of hypertrophy.
