Course Description

Muscle hypertrophy refers to the growth and development of the size of muscle cells beyond what is normal. This book helps you gain a better understanding of the science behind muscle hypertrophy. Brad Schoenfeld has provided an excellent compilation of scientific principles with his book Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy that will help you in achieving the best results out of your training.

This course Includes:

  • Online lessons and assessments
    • X7 online lessons
    • X1 online summative assessment
  • E-Text Book: Science and development of muscle hypertrophy Human Kinetics publication)

Study Mode Offered: ONLINE

This course is completed using the HFPA Online Learning Platform. The course material includes a downloadable Human Kinetics textbook (e-book), online lessons and assessments.

If you would prefer a hard copy textbooks, they are available upon request (additional courier charges will apply). Please request your hard copy upon registration.

Subjects & Modules

This book focuses on applying principles to practice. 

Chapter 1:  Hypertrophy – Related Responses and Adaptions to Exercise Stress, highlights the structure and function of the neuromuscular system along with the responses and adaptions of the neuromuscular, endocrine, paracrine and autocrine systems.

Chapter 2: Mechanisms of Hypertrophy, breaks down mechanical tension, metabolic stress and muscle damage and its link to muscle hypertrophy.

Chapter 3: Role of Resistance Training Variables in Hypertrophy, this chapter specifically goes into depth on resistance training variables and the important role it plays in muscle hypertrophy.

Chapter 4: Role of Aerobic Training in Hypertrophy, highlights how an aerobic training regime affects muscle hypertrophy.

Chapter 5: Factors in Maximal Hypertrohic Development, discusses how various population specific factors affect skeletal muscle mass and the hypertrophic response to resistance training.

Chapter 6: Programme design, this chapter is a culmination of all knowledge gained  and explores the practical application of the science behind muscle hypertrophy.

Chapter 7: Nutrition for Hypertrophy, addresses the importance of proper nutrition and how it can assist with maximising muscle hypertrophy.
