SNR #239: Carl Juneau, PhD – Does Muscle Damage Actually Cause Hypertrophy?
How To Listen
Carl Juneau, PhD
Carl is an exercise scientist with a PhD in physical activity epidemiology. He is also the founder of the Dr. Muscle app.
In This Episode We Discuss
- Influence of mechanical tension, muscle damage and metabolic stress on hypertrophy
- Does muscle damage really cause hypertrophy?
- Research for and against muscle damage being important.
- Practical implications
- Volume vs. mechanical tension
