Muscular hypertrophy is defined as the increase in size of a skeletal muscle. Hypertrophy training is common within the free weight and resistance section of the gym where guys and girls aim to improve the size of their muscles. The common consensus to novice gym goers is that the biggest guy in the free weight section is the strongest, this is not necessarily true and the reasons will be explained here.
Actin and myosin are the two protein filaments that exist within muscles and work together to produce muscular contraction. Whether you want to move a weight, object or to run, contractions need to occur for movement to happen. The more actin and myosin that exist within a muscle, the stronger they will become and the more force you can generate.
To summarise the physical size of an individual is not enough to determine the amount of strength that they possess. Firstly it is important to find out what the individual wants to improve on in the gym, and then work on a plan to achieve it. If looking to improve size, rep ranges of 6 – 12 working at 70% 1RM will be the best method to use to get bigger. Rep ranges of 1 – 6 at 80%+will be best suited for individuals whose primary goal is to get stronger.
