Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, CSCS, CSPS, FNSCA, is an internationally renowned fitness expert and widely regarded as one of the leading authorities on body composition training (muscle development and fat loss). He is a lifetime drug-free bodybuilder, and has won numerous natural bodybuilding titles. Brad is a best-selling author of multiple fitness books and has authored the seminal textbook Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy (Human Kinetics, 2016), the first text devoted to an evidence-based elucidation of the mechanisms and strategies for optimizing muscle growth. In total, Brad’s books have sold over a half-million copies. Brad earned his masters degree in kinesiology/exercise science from the University of Texas at Permian Basin and his PhD at Rocky Mountain University where his dissertation focused on elucidating the mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy and their application to resistance training. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed research articles on exercise and sports nutrition, as well as several textbook chapters. He acts as the Assistant Editor-in-Chief for the NSCA’s Strength and Conditioning Journal, as well as serving on the editorial advisory board for several peer-reviewed exercise- and nutrition-related journals.
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 […]
This presentation will delve into the factors that cause muscle growth. A detailed discussion of the concepts of mechanical tension, metabolic stress, and muscle damage will be provided, with insights into how proposed driving factors such as hormones, myokines, satellite cells, and cell swelling may affect results. A working model is developed based on current […]
