Part 1 – Occlusion training, drawbacks, and more on hypertrophy
Where’s the beef?
Who cares, were going to build some.
I know what you’re thinking, and no, this isn’t a weird lab experiment I’m running here in Louisville. It’s everything you’d ever want to know about helping your clients pack on lean mass.
Let’s get to the bottom of determining the correct way to breed new muscle children.
In this two part series, we’ll get into who really needs hypertrophy training, what typical hypertrophy work looks like, and the basics of occlusion training. Plus, the science behind it all (because you know I love that s***).
Once we understand all of that jazz, we can determine which clients and athletes need hypertrophy work and how to make it most effective.
Here’s what to expect in part 1:
- Determining who needs hypertrophy work
- How hypertrophy can be detrimental
- Typical training loads for hypertrophy
- Occlusion training (aka Kaatsu training)
- Structural changes in muscle
Part 2 – Muscle physiology, training, and more on hypertrophy
A forewarning! Put on your big boy or big girl pants because the physiology you’re going to get in this video is at the edge of human knowledge when it comes to muscular hypertrophy. Some of the topics haven’t been proven, but are hypothesized by leading experts in biology and phyisology. We’re going to take all that knowledge and use it for the greater good of getting huge.
Here’s what to expect in part 2:
- A quick review of part 1
- ALL of the muscle physiology you’ll never need to know
- Using the physiology to build the beef (aka training recommendations)
