How fast should you lift to maximize muscle growth? This age-old question is an ongoing source of debate amongst bodybuilders and researchers alike. Some feel that explosive lifts optimize fiber recruitment and thus provide a greater muscle-building stimulus. Others claim that performing movements slowly maximizes tension on the muscle, thereby stimulating more hypertrophy. So who’s right?
Packing on muscle is not just about what you do in the gym; it requires staunch attention to nutrition, as well. Both the types and quantity of nutrients that you consume will have a profound effect on your muscular gains.
If you want to pack on lean muscle, you need to take a scientific approach to training. I’ve spent the better part of my professional career researching the complexities of muscle hypertrophy and applying the information gleaned to help numerous competitive physique athletes and recreational lifters alike optimize body composition. My new book, The MAX Muscle Plan, is the culmination of these efforts.
