LIFT HEAVY for more MUSCLE

A study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology in December found that the heavier you lift the more muscle fibres you recruit. The researchers studied 10 young resistance-trained men’s performance on the leg press, using two different load intensities: a high load of 75 per cent of 1RM and a low load of 30 per cent of 1 RM. Using electromyography (EMG) to test muscle activation, the researchers found that “significantly greater mean GMG activity was found during the high-load set compared to the low-load set.”
