Neural Contributions to Muscle Growth

June 1, 2017

Article

Neural adaptations help mediate growth-related processes and the early increase in strength is attributable mainly to improved neural function. Along with neural changes, various aspects of the protein metabolism in the muscle are changing in the early phases of training.

Growth Hormone Responses to Stress

June 1, 2017

Article

Growth hormone release is affected by the type of resistance training protocol used, including the duration of rest periods. Short rest period types of workouts result in greater serum concentrations compared to long rest protocols of similar total work; however, at present it is not clear how the various molecular forms or types of growth hormones are affected by rest period duration.

The Growth and Maturation of the Female Pediatric Athlete

November 6, 2018

Article Members Only

Growth and maturation are two important processes that occur throughout an individual’s childhood and adolescent years. The purpose of this article is to review the dimensions, proportions, stature, body mass, and maturational events of all female pediatric athletes in general. It also serves to identify how early sport specialization and different modes of training of the female pediatric athlete affects her growth and maturation.

Hands-On – Building Muscle without Weights

November 2, 2015

Video

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to “pump iron” to build muscle. In this session from the NSCA’s 2015 Personal Trainers Conference, Nick Tumminello explains that to build muscle you need to create a training stimulus that elicits the three mechanisms for muscle growth. In other words, building muscle is not about the specific exercises you do, it is about the specific stimulus you create.

Muscle Damage and Hypertrophy: The More, the Better?

June 1, 2017

Article

There is a sound theoretical rationale supporting a potential role for muscle damages in the hypertrophic response, but a cause-effect relationship directly linking these gains to muscle damage is yet to be established. If such a relationship does in fact exist, it is not clear as to what extent of damage is optimal for inducing maximum muscle growth.
