The opposite of atrophy training, which is what most people on other boards seem to be engaged in...

In all seriousness though, Titan summed it up nicely.

Hypertrophy training is a generic term for any training designed to increase the size of your muscles.

An overview of some of the different types of hypertrophy: Hypertrophy Training.

(Hypertrophy-Specific Training created by Brian Haycock is just one of the many different kinds of hypertrophy training.)

Muscle size don't always me strong, as strong don't always mean big muscles.
How you think the quote "stronger than he looks." got started.

Muscle density AKA: Muscle maturity has a lot to do with it.

Hypertrophy training digs deep into the tissue to create density of the muscle making it larger and store more energy.

Like said, a modern age fancy way for naming a rep range of work with the science evidence backing it. If your going for true bodybuilding you will care and learn about it. If your just lifting for personal gains or P/Ling, 90% chance you won't give a crap about it. Just the way it is. No bashing or anything intended.

Perhaps not always directly, but additional muscle size does provide opportunities for additional strength. Hypertrophy work has long been a part in many powerlifting approaches.



I think we're saying about the same thing though, but in different ways. Powerlifters tend to focus on bringing up weak strength areas, and bodybuilders weak muscle areas. This specialization, or splitting point, is generally what takes place for intermediate lifters as they start to learn their bodies, and focus their training to better reach their goals.

Powerlifters want a muscular base but care little for muscular balance. Bodybuilders want strength as a means to help hypertrophy, but care little for one rep max strength.

Not speaking at you about this Rich, as you know all this 10x over, but in general for the lurkers.
