Muscle: The muscle fiber type–fiber size paradox: hypertrophy or oxidative metabolism?

Introduction Three decades ago, it was first demonstrated in humans that training at the same time for both strength and endurance results in less adaptation of skeletal muscles compared to training for either one alone, a phenomenon known as the concurrent training effect (Hickson 1980).

As a competitive bodybuilder, I don't only emphasize sarcoplasmic hypertrophy via high-volume training (this is even more true while dieting for a competition), I incorporate power and strength training to encourage myfibrilar adaptations as well. I try to lift heavy even while maintaining an extended calorie deficit so as to inhibit the protein degradation effect as indicated in the article. I recently adopted a style of "power hypertrophy adaptive training" after being first introduced to it by (no surprise here) Dr Layne Norton last year -- http://www.simplyshredded.com/mega-feature-layne-norton-training-series-full-powerhypertrophy-routine-updated-2011.html | Good stuff in this research though! 02-05-2013 11:11am
