4 Effective Ways to Trigger More Hypertrophy for Muscle Building

Muscle mass is the most popular fitness goal for men. Have you ever met a guy who didn’t want more muscle? Muscle building relies on muscular hypertrophy. This is when you apply a specific amount of resistance to the designated muscle. In turn, this will cause microtears and in response, the muscle will grow bigger and stronger. If you’ve been fighting for mass for a long time, or if you want to break past your plateau, give these tricks a try. Here are the top 4 most effective ways to trigger more muscular hypertrophy.

  1. More Energy, Better Performance

The first way to trigger more hypertrophy is to make sure that your body has the energy required to conquer a workout. If you step into the gym with low energy levels, you won’t be able to perform the workload required for muscular hypertrophy. Step in there ready to go. You may want to consider drinking coffee or using a supplement beforehand. Pre-workout supplements are a great way to kick start your body into overdrive to kick butt during a workout.

  1. Tie It Up

If you’ve recently been wondering why guys are wearing tight bands around their arms and legs during training, you’re not alone. These tie bands are designed to restrict blood flow just enough so that it forces the muscle to work harder. The result is far more hypertrophy than training without these bands. They are inexpensive and very effective. You can even make your own restrictive bands at home. Be careful though. Make sure not to completely cut off the circulation!

  1. Go All Out Then Keep Going

Training to failure via drop sets is a brutal yet very effective way to trigger more hypertrophy. The idea is to perform as many repetitions as you possibly can then immediately lower the weight and go to failure again. You do this for several sets and get ready to experience a pump like never before. For example, let’s say you are training your biceps with Hammer Curls. Here is what a failure drop set would look like:

  • Set 1: 12 repetitions with 40 pound dumbbells (remember to do as many as you possibly can – this number is just an example)
  • Set 2: 9 reps with 35 lbs.
  • Set 3: 6 reps with 30 lbs.
  • Set 4: 4 reps with 25 lbs.
  • Set 5: 3 reps with 20 lbs.
  1. Wear a Sauna Suit

The easiest and one of the most effective ways to trigger more muscular hypertrophy is simply by wearing a sauna suit such as the one you’ll find with Kutting Weight. A neoprene sauna suit captures the same benefits of a real sauna without the price tag. Studies show that when the body is introduced to a high heat environment just like you’ll find with the Kutting Weight neoprene sauna suit, a specialized protein is released. These heat shock proteins trigger greater amounts of muscular hypertrophy, which may lead to more muscle! Try a Kutting Weight sauna suit for yourself and experience the results you want.
