Maximum Strength for Building Muscle

Written on August 4, 2008 at 11:25 am, by Eric Cressey

Q: I had a question about Maximum Strength. I just read it and it’s great, but my question is: if someone was lifting for bodybuilding purposes and needed to add a good deal of mass how much would this program help?

A: I think it could help a lot – in a longer-term, indirect way. Many aspiring bodybuilders are too weak for their cross-sectional area, so taking some time to increase strength before returning to the classic hypertrophy zones almost exclusively can have some great benefits. The truth is that although pro bodybuilders often get ripped on for being weak, most of them are pretty strong dudes – and certainly much stronger than the Ordinary Joe walking around on the street.
