Hypertrophy with regards to strength training is the thickening of muscle fibers, resulting in strength and size increases. That’s the idea with this extended workout. Pick weights that will allow for difficulty on your last 2-3 reps. The rest periods are important so that when you approach the movement again, you’ll be as close to 100% recovery as you are able. The end of the workout will be topped off with a short high-intensity segment just to let your body know what it can do. Happy lifting!Do you have a fitness resolution?
