This course will introduce and extend your knowledge in muscle hypertrophy, architecture and fibre type. Loading considerations for hypertrophy, the effects of, and how to train to change pennation angle and fascicle length, and how different types of training influence fibre type transformation are explored.

Changing the shape as in size, thickness and length of muscle, and shifting fibre type are of interest to practitioners as these changes can have substantial effects on the force-velocity and force-length properties of muscle i.e. muscle function. Given this information, this course introduces and extends your knowledge in three broad subject areas; hypertrophy, architecture and fibre type. There are significant bodies of work in each of these areas, therefore the resources narrow down on information that is meaningful to your practice. Of particular emphasis are the loading considerations for hypertrophy, the effects of and how to train to change pennation angle and fascicle length, and how different types of training influence fibre type transformation.

Each topic (Hypertrophy, Muscle Architecture and Fibre Type) is comprised of three units of work.

  1. A Masterclass that introduces you to the physiology and/or mechanics of the topic and introduces you to assessment, programming and adaptations related to the component of interest.
  2. An Assessment Zone that takes you through different types and ways to assess the component of interest. These Assessment Zones finish with a case study if feasible, where you practice the technique discussed and you interpret the data.
  3. An Exercise Zone where you will learn how to preferentially target the component of interest via simple exercise, progressions and programming considerations.

What Will Be Covered?

  • Muscle physiology including muscle architecture and fibre type.
  • How muscle mechanics and function are influenced by hypertrophy, architecture and fibre type.
  • Assessment, programming and tissue adaptation
  • Practical ‘how-to’ assessment of specific components
  • How to preferentially target specific components with simple exercise, progressions and programming considerations.

Topics include:

Chapter 1: Hypertrophy

  • Masterclass
  • Assessment Zone
  • Exercise Zone

Chapter 2: Muscle Architecture

  • Masterclass
  • Assessment Zone
  • Exercise Zone

Chapter 3: Muscle Fibre Type

Learning Outcomes:

  • Ability to implement, analyse and/or interpret assessments related to the major topics of interest.
  • Demonstrate exercises and design programs to effect changes in hypertrophy, architecture and fibre type.
