You probably know that to get your body to build new muscle tissue a few things need to happen.
Most importantly you need to create a stimulus for example through weight training and you also need to provide your body with the right building blocks to create new tissue like calories and enough protein.
But what exactly happens in your body when you have these things covered.
We know from studies that skeletal muscle tissue is the most adaptable tissue in the human body.
And even though we still haven’t figured out every last aspect of muscle growth it is a well researched topic that can help you improve your fitness routine.
So to help you understand the whole process we have to start with the basics.
Your muscles don’t actually grow during the workout.
The biceps with its full name being biceps brachii is called that way because it has two heads.
Both heads of the muscle arise on the scapula and join to form a single muscle belly which is attached to the upper forearm.
As you probably already know the biceps acts to flex the elbow and pretty much every guy wants bigger biceps.
The hamstrings are a group of muscles at the rear of the upper leg.
They flex the knee joint, adduct the leg and extend the thigh to the backside of the body.
They’re made up of a long head and a short head.
