Progression for Hypertrophy: Your Evidence-Based Bible

You often hear the phrase, "If you're getting stronger, you're getting bigger."  But is that really true?  Changes in muscle size can be agonizingly slow, and it can be tough to know if what you're doing in the gym is translating into becoming swole.  In this massive, 6500 word evidence-based guide,  I go over all of the research that looks at the relationship between changes in strength, endurance, and hypertrophy. I also give you BRAND NEW analyses of data from the rest interval and varied/constant rep studies that I co-authored with Brad SchoenfeldBret Contreras, Menno Henselmans, and others.  You'll come away from this piece with a set of practical recommendations on the sort of progression you want to achieve if hypertrophy is your main goal...and it's not just about getting stronger!
