Training for Hypertrophy: The Case Against Muscle Damage — Carl Juneau, Stronger by Science
I didn’t like reading this article. That’s why it’s number one.
Muscle damage is widely accepted as a main contributor to muscle growth. It’s simple, makes sense, and the experts have always supported it. It makes sense in my head and it’s easy to explain to clients.
We don’t like to change our own understanding of fitness. Especially something as basic as the role of the muscle damage in hypertrophy. But if you’re truly an “evidence-based” trainer, you’ll read this article with an open mind, and consider the implications.
