Not familiar? Its that special, yet very controversial, term for the phase of weight lifting that builds gigantic muscles by lifting huge weights with few reps. More muscle to use during the long, muscle atrophying cycling race season. Sounds like a simple concept, right? Long story short, Ive decided to integrate this style of training into the weight lifting portion of my cycling program. But, I didn't anticipate the massive amounts of pain squatting 200lbs until you can feel your muscles quiver would cause. Especially the next day. When I couldn't get out of my lofted dormitory bed. Needless to say, I was forced to throw myself out in order to start my day. At least the pain from the fall was less than that in my legs. But on the bright side, lifting that much weight only hurts once! and the pain is indeed always worth tearing the legs off of the competition during race season. This is a rough estimate of what hypertrophy will make you look like...
