Popular myths about Strength Training

💥 through some common myths!

1️⃣Being super sore after a workout is not necessary for muscle growth, muscle damage is not the process that mediates or potentiates RT-induced muscle hypertrophy.

2️⃣Lactic acid & lactate are used interchangeably but they are not the same. And most importantly, the burn you feel during & muscle soreness after exercise is not due to lactic acid accumulation because it is cleared quickly from the body.

3️⃣Volume is not a KEY driver of muscle growth & training sessions that are 60 min+ can increase total central nervous system fatigue, which isn’t as productive as you may think. We are going for the minimum effective dose here, which is less than you think.

4️⃣Never repeating a workout may sound fun and provide variety, but just because you’re generating new adaptations, this doesn’t equate to muscle growth. In order to properly apply progressive overload, you’ll want to repeat the same workouts for a period of time.
