By Stuart Phillips

Our understanding of why human skeletal muscle hypertrophies in response to resistance exercise has evolved tremendously in the last two to three decades. We now recognize that rises in endogenous supposedly anabolic hormones do not give rise to muscle growth. We also know that external load is not a driver of hypertrophy, so long as a high effort is exerted. Local intramuscular mechanisms dominate how muscle growth occurs. Humans’ response to mechanical loading drives intrinsic molecular-level adaptations that are core to understanding muscle hypertrophy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Uncover what factors do not drive muscle hypertrophy;
  2. Learn how intrinsic versus extrinsic factors modulate muscle hypertrophy; and
  3. Understand how molecular mechanisms are the keys to skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
