A lot has been said about body building but it is not possible to exhaust the aspect of muscle hypertrophy. This issue has been all over the articles on websites, magazines and other avenues. There are different ways of finding the excellent ways of having a perfect muscle hypertrophy and this is varied per individual.

There have been a lot of discussions and forums on the relevant trainings and methods for muscle hypertrophy. Before you start looking at these aspects involved in the induction of muscle hypertrophy it would be rather good to know specifically what muscle hypertrophy involves. In general terms, muscle hypertrophy is all about the growth and a relative increase of muscle tissue in the body. It is therefore just well illustrated with the increase in muscle fibers size not the observable creation of a new muscle cell. The later is a completely different process referred to muscle hyperplasia and it occurs in different times and with varied conditions. Muscle hypertrophy is generally categorized into two different types namely, sarcomplasmic hypertrophy and myofibrillar hypertrophy. The former is the subsequent increase of the sarcomplasmic fluid being produced and these results in a relative muscle size increase but a low level of strength being generated. On the other hand, myofibrillar hypertrophy is termed as an increase in the muscle size named as muscle myofibrils, and also having a greater increment in the energy generated.

From all these explanations, muscle hypertrophy can be taken as the sole aim of a body builder. The means towards achieving it is usually the main problem and a task for the body builder. There are generally two important components that you should take into considerations for this process and they are lactic acids and anabolic hormones, they both have a major role in muscle hypertrophy.

Normally body builders feel the build up of lactic acid, and it is usually a process which is interpreted by the lifters as the main barrier to getting through a full set or may be useless and negative bi-product after exercising. But it is good to know that, lactic acid is very relevant for a body builder, in the early carbohydrate catabolism stages, where energy needs to be fueled and used for muscle contraction, lactic acid as a bi product of the exercise leads to the relative excretion of anabolic hormones which are very powerful. The higher level of growth hormone and testosterone produced is what generate a powerful hormone IFG-1 and this increase the growth of muscles eventually.

Therefore, a body builder should not ignore the lactic acid being produced. However too much of it is dangerous because it leads to more muscle sourness and the acidity is dangerous in wearing out tissues. The whole process is said to decrease as one ages and therefore one should have a moderate change of the exercises form high intensity to moderate exercises as he or she ages and therefore making surge of anabolic hormones become reduced and less build up of lactic acid.
