In this episode, Rob dives deep into the specifics of how to build a workout plan that will trigger muscle growth. Despite the title of this post, it's truly not a secret, but more of strategy for success that might be overlooked by most. He discussed the difference between a hypertrophy style workout versus a strength building workout. They both have their benefits in helping to build lean muscle mass, but are quite different in their execution. Hypertrophy workouts generally have 3 to 4 sets with an 8 to 12 rep range. Strength workouts usually have anywhere from 4 to 10 sets with a much smaller rep range, between 1 to 5 reps. You'll want to listen to podcast to hear Rob go into more detail about the strategies involved when trying to achieve the goal of building lean muscle.
