Cover Story (view full-size image): Training for hypertrophy is often associated with athletes such as bodybuilders who use training regimens aimed at achieving maximal hypertrophy. While bodybuilders have balanced and symmetrical physiques, muscle function differs compared to strength and power athletes. For instance, bodybuilders are likely to have larger, more abundant type I muscle fibers, whereas strength and power athletes have greater type II muscle content. Therefore, strength and power athletes possess a greater capacity to produce higher forces and power outputs relative to sport-specific tasks. Thus, task-specific hypertrophy should be programmed within a periodized training model for those who want hypertoric adaptions to carry over to sequential strength and power performances later on.
