Weight Lifting: Making Your Muscles Bigger

If you are looking to create bigger muscles (hypertrophy), then you need to pay attention to this blog post. The only way to make your muscles bigger is by challenging the muscle. What I mean by this is that you need to stress the muscle with enough resistance training, but also be able to manipulate the rest times between sets in order to continue to fatigue the muscle. For one, you need to overload your muscles on some sets, but not with all of the exercises. The key is that once you have fatigued the muscle you want to keep challenging it. You do not necessarily have to keep increasing the weights with every set, especially if your rest times are shorter than average. Remember, your goal is to increase muscle size, not strength or power. If your goal is to increase muscle strength and power, then you need to train a totally different way. You will get stronger and develop more power with hypertrophy training, but it will not be as significant if your main goal is just strength and power.Thanks,Kisar S.
