What is Muscle Hypertrophy?

The Professional Master’s Degree Fitness Instructor of TECH aims to train qualified trainers to supply a training plan based on muscle growth.

Normally, people who go to the gym to exercise have the purpose of implementing weight training, and together with the guidance of a trainer can structure a plan to tone and grow the muscles of any part of the body. This is how the Professional Master’s Degree Fitness Instructor from TECH educates trainers who can guide their clients to help in muscle hypertrophy, which is an increase in the size and/or number of muscle myofibrils made up of actin and myosin filaments.

In this way, hypertrophy is achieved through three factors: muscle damage, metabolic stress, and mechanical stress. Thus, the intensity is what figures out the mechanical stress of each session and is identified with the amount of load and the time of stress, which causes muscle damage and an inflammatory response that enhances the release of muscle growth factors. Then, maximum muscle mass gain is achieved through the achievement of metabolic stress without losing mechanical tension.

Also, this is accompanied by an increase in strength, however, it is not directly proportional to increased strength. Nevertheless, it has other added benefits such as the increase in muscle mass also increases the basal metabolism which helps weight loss, activates blood circulation, improves overall toning, improves body posture, prevents back pain, increases bone density, improves body control, and helps to avoid injuries.
