Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy

Dr Brandon Roberts is a man of science who is also deeply involved in the field himself.

With a PhD in Muscle Biology, a notorious fitness writer for well-established reviews/website, a coach for the Strength Guys and a competitive Natural Bodybuilder. This gives Brandon unique perspectives and the ability to have a full view of what’s going on in the lab vs. the gym.

Today we talk about new discoveries within the muscle hypertrophy sphere, all wasn’t as clear as we once thought and close on some discussion surrounding sleep.
