Without a doubt, the most important and popular goal that is entertained by lifters when they enter the gym is, of course, muscle development. But what does that mean, specifically? What is it about new muscle growth that so many people from all walks of life find so darn alluring?

The second answer will probably be “I’m here to get stronger”. Again, this is a very reasonable goal. Finally, the most likely answer will combine the two and will sound something like, “I’m here to get bigger AND stronger”. (For the sake of this exercise, we’ll ignore those trainers seeking to lose body fat).
