What makes muscle grow? [Video]

Categories: Training

What makes muscle grow? The organizers of the epic SPS Summit this year – arguably thé fitness conference of 2017 – were kind enough to share one of Menno’s lectures for free. This is an absolute knowledge bomb. Menno goes over a large range of topics from rest intervals and advanced training techniques to protein synthesis and supplements and proposes that the currently dominant model of mechanical tension, muscle damage and metabolic stress as the 3 key drivers of muscle growth is in need of revision. He proposes a new model to explain what makes muscles grow.
