Genetics & Bodybuilding | Maximize Muscle Hypertrophy
Show Notes

In this episode, we attempt to answer the question, "what role does genetics play in building muscle?" by examining an online article from the Good Guide for Health Care. We then transition into discussing two recent research articles (linked below) that discuss advanced resistance training techniques promoting hypertrophy, as well as the optimal resistance training volume per muscle group. We finish out the episode discussing some things to look out for as a consumer in the fitness industry, and Evan provides a look into his Spotify Release Radar for this week. We hope there are a lot of key takeaways from this episode that you can directly implement into your training routine to maximize muscle hypertrophy. Enjoy!
