Default Bigger Weights May Not Beget Bigger Muscles.

Bigger weights may not beget bigger muscles: evidence from acute muscle protein synthetic responses after resistance exercise.


It is often recommended that heavier training intensities (70%–80% of maximal strength) be lifted to maximize muscle growth. However, we have reported that intensities as low as 30% of maximum strength, when lifted to volitional fatigue, are equally effective at stimulating muscle protein synthesis rates during resistance exercise recovery. This paper discusses the idea that high-intensity contractions are not the exclusive driver of resistance exercise-induced changes in muscle protein synthesis rates.
