Muscle hypertrophy

The term “muscular hypertrophy” describes a rise in muscle mass. A gain in muscular mass and strength is the typical way that this shows up.

Muscle hypertrophy is of 3 kinds: myofibrillar and sarcoplasmic and myostatin. Myofibrillar, which is an increase in myofibrils, and sarcoplasmic, which is an increase in the storage of muscle glycogen.


There are 3 types of muscle hypertrophy-

  • MYOFIBRILLAR HYPERTROPHY- is the rise in the number of myofibrils, the long strands in the muscle that aid in contraction. The muscle becomes more dense and powerful as the number of myofibrils rises.

  • SARCOPLASMIC HYPERTROPHY - refers to the increase in sarcoplasmic fluid volume in the muscles, which is the fluid that is filled with different types of energy-containing molecules.

  • MYOSTATIN- RELATED MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY - is an uncommon disorder that results in up to double the usual amount of muscle mass and a significant decrease in body fat.
