If you’ve spent any amount of time in the fitness space, you’ve heard a lot of things about muscle building.

Things like:

  • Muscles respond differently to different types of training.
  • Muscles don’t know weight. They only know tension.
  • There are different types of muscle growth.
  • Training with lighter weights and higher reps is best for muscle gain.
  • Training with heavier weights and lower reps is best for muscle gain.
  • Muscle building is mostly genetic, and how you train doesn’t much matter.

And you’ve also probably heard that most of that is pseudoscientific nonsense, and that some other theory or model altogether is the real “secret” to gaining muscle quickly and effectively.
