Muscle hypertrophy involves an increase in size of skeletal muscle through a growth in size of its component cells. Two factors contribute to hypertrophy: sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, which focuses more on increased muscle glycogen storage; and myofibrillar hypertrophy, which focuses more on increased myofibril size.
As a general rule of thumb, we suggest MALES consume an average of 2700-3200 calories and a minimum of 70 grams fat per day to reach your muscle building goals. Optimal growth requires sufficient protein, carb and fat consumption and FEMALES consume an average of 1700-2400 calories and a minimum of 30 grams fat per day to reach your goals, these are rough number that can be made precise with coaching!
- We suggest you add your own high protein breakfast & protein shake after your workout.
