Training Techniques: Training The Largest muscles (Part 1)

Jul 5, 2008
In order to create a highly anabolic environment within the body, it is important that the largest muscles of the body (primarily those that are involved in the squat, deadlift, and even leg-pressing to a large extent, i.e. the muscles of the thigh, hip and lower back) are trained and stimulated to grow. Why? Since these muscles comprise such a large amount of the total muscle mass on the human body, any training stress of sufficient intensity to cause these muscles to grow will also place great stress on the body overall.

These large muscle areas play an integral part regards physiology and mechanisms throughout the whole body. They need support from smaller muscles in order to perform correctly which in turn creates the need for growth and recuperation to be generated in these muscles areas too. Examples of support muscles are the stomach which is needed for digesting the nutrients required by the muscles. This action will increase as the muscles grow so your stomach ends up adapting itself to these new needed requirements as it become more efficient. It is amazing what power training has over our body and just how well it can adapt to new needs.

The effect of stress placed on our body is clearly at it's peak while going under a maximum period of intensive training on these larger bodily muscular regions. This then leads to creating a highly anabolic environment within the whole of our body. In turn the body reacts in producing growth and repair of muscle tissue throughout the body on both larger and smaller muscle areas.

The Importance of Protein and Water... In order for your body to adapt to training stress, it is vital that you are ingesting enough protein and carbohydrate. Most people find that a high protein diet, with lower relative carbohydrate levels, is better for them: this is something that you have to experiment with for yourself.

Water though is probably the most important component that is required by our body and is most needed when training hard and accompanied by a high protein diet. Water as a component is about 70% of muscle mass as to 30% protein. It plays a crucial role in the elimination of waste products and reduces the stress placed on our kidneys. (Coming soon Part 2)
