ON THIS EPISODE...
Kevin and Justin break down the three mechanisms of hypertrophy:
1. Mechanical Tension
2. Muscle Damage
3. Metabolic Stress
These are the only three ways to build muscle. Everything done in the gym related to hypertrophy falls into one of these categories.
The guys explain what these mechanisms mean, discuss how much emphasis should be placed on each, and share a handful of programming recommendations to help you implement them in your training.
