Everything You Need To Know About Making Every Muscle Cell In Your Body BIGGER!

If you want to build muscle, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the following equations:

1.    Net Muscle Protein Balance (NMPB) = protein synthesis vs. protein breakdown = *hypertrophy

2.    Energy Balance = calories in vs. calories out = weight gain/loss

*Hypertrophy = the increase in muscle fiber size due to an accumulation of contractile and non-contractile proteins inside the cell
