SNR #225: Carl Juneau, PhD – Effective Reps & Strategies for Hypertrophy

Guest Bio

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

  • Theory of effective reps
  • Influence of mechanical tension, muscle damage and metabolic stress on hypertrophy
  • Does metabolic stress really cause hypertrophy? Or is it just a by-product of mechanical tension?
  • Methods to make use of a higher number of effective reps: rest-pause, myo-reps, drop sets, etc.
  • Exercise selection for such methods
  • Role of rest intervals: the U-shaped curve developed by Carl Juneau and James Krieger
  • How strategies change with experience level
