Science of Muscle Growth, Increasing Strength & Muscular Recovery by Andrew Huberman

Here is one of our favorite podcasts Huberman Lab by Andrew Huberman.


In this episode Andrew describes how our brain and nervous system control muscle tissue and how to leverage that for muscle maintenance, growth (hypertrophy) and recovery. Andrew explains muscle metabolism and muscle fiber recruitment and detail protocols for increasing muscular growth and for neuro-muscular recovery.

He explains the effects of deliberate cold, anti-inflammatory agents, and anti-histamines on training progress. He also describes science-supported protocols using certain weight load ranges, total sets per week, training intensity, frequency, and in-between set activities if one's goal is to increase muscle growth, strength or endurance.

He reviews three foundational compounds and nutrients and three optimization compounds and nutrients that have been shown to improve neuro-muscular performance.

Finally, Andrew explains how to leverage exercise and weight training to enhance cognitive function.
