About the Video

Dr. MacDougall will review the structural changes that occur in skeletal muscle in response to heavy resistance training and discuss the potential mechanisms that stimulate protein synthesis and muscle hypertrophy. Sub-topics that will be covered include; the time course for muscle protein synthesis, muscle damage and repair, hypertrophy vs. hyperplasia and the role of the satellite cell in the hypertrophy process.
