Within this video I am explaining muscle building workouts in five amounts of growing difficulty from Noob to Pro. The very first level covers the fundamentals: you have to lift and eat protein. Level 2 goes one layer much deeper covering progressive overload and daily protein intake (just how much protein each day?). Level 3 covers effort, training volume, intensity, exercise selection and frequency. Level 4 will get more granular, describing precisely what causes muscle growth via a critical look at the 3-factor model (mechanical tension, muscle damage and metabolic stress). About this level, we address questions like “what role does soreness play in hypertrophy?” and “just how much may be the pump driving muscle growth?” Level 5 is really a deep dive in to the biochemistry of muscle growth: the physiological impacts of hysteria, proteins (leucine, EAAs) and testosterone.

*Footnote on Metabolic Stress:

As I personally think it can make probably the most sense, it really is not perfectly obvious if shorter rest periods do actually increase metabolic stress when compared with longer rest periods. For instance, this research ( discovered that bloodstream lactate levels elevated similarly throughout a full-workout when resting either 30, 60, or 120 seconds between sets. Still, because this study only measured lactate levels and never H+, hypoxia, phosphate, etc. I believe the idea that shorter rest periods would result in more metabolic stress (via elevated fatigue) is nevertheless an acceptable assumption even without the direct empirical data.

*Footnote on BFR:

Some might reason that BFR does really enhance muscle hypertrophy, however, in the event that effect exists, metabolic stress has not been proven is the primary causative factor. Plus, BFR only appears to enhance hypertrophy when the training techniques are suboptimal (both light weights and from failure).
