#106 – Hypertrophy and Strength Training for the Intermediate Lifter with Andy Baker


Andy Baker is back for another episode, and today he’s tackling hypertrophy for the intermediate lifter. After walking through his preferred strategies for implementing a Heavy/Light/Medium (HLM) model during the intermediate phase, Andy explains the need for most intermediate lifters to gain muscle mass without necessarily a lot of excess bodyweight. This is particularly true for older lifters, he observes, and women, who cannot metabolize a lot of excess calories after the novice phase like younger males could. In order for these lifters to continue making strength gains, they need greater cross section of muscle to increase their force production. In other words, they need hypertrophy.
