Program design for maximal muscle development

Fórum Lisboa

This presentation will discuss how to construct an individualized resistance training program for maximizing muscle hypertrophy. The presentation begins with a thorough review of the variables associated with resistance training and what science tells about their manipulation for muscle growth. A discussion of periodization and its relevance to program design is explained, as well as a scientific approach to selecting exercises for a hypertrophy-oriented routine. Sample routines are provided to show examples as to how programs can be structured to optimize results.
