Video: Hypertrophy Stimulus - Bernardo Costa

If you want to get economy cranking, give people some money. You want to grow some skeletal muscle - stimulate it! This is the same concept in both areas which is evoking a specific functional reaction.

Bernardo Costa is an IFBB Pro classic physique competitor preparing for the New York Pro now rescheduled for August 8th. His approach to stimulating growth is more methodical and akin to lifters such as Hunter Labrada and James Hollingshead than the opposite end of the spectrum of Branch Warren and Johnnie Jackson.

"There's working out and there's training. Training is intentional, it's systemic it's a process. Working out is what most people do. They don't log their workouts they don't look for the progressive over load they don't have any system behind it. How do you compare the progress with no system behind it?"

Check out what Bernardo has to say about stimulus and training vs working out.
