“What Makes Muscles Grow?” with Jeff Siegel

BKB Somerville Personal Trainer, Jeff Siegel, explains how to properly treat your muscles each day to ensure they are growing, and not the reverse, in this video published on TED Education.

what makes muscles grow

“Whether or not body building is your hobby, muscles need your constant attention. Because the way you treat them on a daily basis determines whether they will wither or grow.”

Personal Trainer, Jeff Siegel explains in What Makes Muscles Grow (published on TED Ed) that muscles do not just rely on activity to grow. Maintaining proper nutrition, getting adequate rest, and developing these best practices into a routine all contribute as well.

Want to learn how to get shredded? As Jeff explains, the cycle of microscopic muscle damage, when exposed to stress, and its later repair is actually what makes muscles get bigger and stronger. Watch the video to hear more.
