In order for a muscle to grow, muscle overload must occur with resistance exercise; no argument there, however several books have advocated high-rep exercises to stimulate muscle growth.
Most exercise programs designed to promote fat loss use low or moderate intensity walking and jogging workouts. Unfortunately, they seldom work. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) may be the answer.

Improving upper body strength and power can drastically elevate athletic performance while also generating tremendous muscle growth. Over the years, the research on bench press strength training has steadily developed to the point where specific protocols for optimal strength and size have been elucidated. Typically these methods incorporate the use of heavy weights to boost intensity and induce greater muscle cell activity, ultimately supporting greater size and strength.
