Hypertrophy Training: Rules to Stick to when Muscle Hypertrophy is Your Only Goal!

By Joshua C Kozak Subscribe to RSS | June 26th 2012 | Views:

Hypertrophy training in an untamed pursuit to build a better body, concerns us about the overall results or how we plan to get from stage 1 to 2; we are simply looking for a transformation to take place. We are looking for the maximal muscle growth in the shortest amount of time and we’ll do all we can to look how we think we’re supposed to when staring at the reflection looking back at us.

The journey may come across vain to others, but to those who can relate and understand – it has much more depth. The maximal muscle hypertrophy we are looking for is often a result of our competitive drive to reach achieves new goals or the unconscious self-doubt (gasp) we put ourselves down with.

Of course, to certain people it’s just vanity and that’s ok as well; now and then there’s nothing wrong with a little textbook narcissism. Although, to fully understand something, we must begin at the final result and work backwards. In which case, to fully understand hypertrophy training, from an anecdotal standpoint, we’re going to take a look at a few trainees who’ve achieved major goals despite slightly different training approaches and philosophies.

You need to become strong. No matter what anyone tells you, for the majority, strength is going to balance size. As we look at the bodybuilding masters, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting and the popular sports such as American football which calls for the athlete to be very strong, it’s not hard to see that maximal strength usually means an increase in muscle hypertrophy.

Do you still not believe? Have a look at Tommy Jeffers, Martin Berkhan, Layne Norton, Dave Gulledge, or any other athlete with amazing strength. All these athletes are very strong and thus possess remarkable physiques. You should also take a look at how their training differs. Although it’s obvious when you look at their programming that Tommy and Layne are focused on hypertrophy training, Martin’s training preference seems to be fairly low volume (rarely looked upon as hypertrophy training), and Dave Gulledge’s focus is primarily strength-oriented.

It is very essential to go over the Low Volume Hypertrophy Training. The DC method is a good example in this case. The concept of DC is simple; heavy weights, low volume and continuous improvement. The training guide concentrates on 3 training sessions every week. The selection of exercise is varied from session to session but the way it’s laid out is fairly minimal. This program is primarily focuses on muscle production hypertrophy via strength gains on any given movement.

I think it’s pretty safe to say the big picture is what’s important here. Of course, certain training programs are more suitable for some than others. If you’re target is to gain and maintain as much strength possible, choosing a strength-based routine is going to be more suitable than choosing a program structured only on the concept of creating hypertrophy in the first place. Ok, so you’ll be sure to gain strength on either one but which one will help you achieve your goal faster?
