Train Less and Gain Muscle Faster | Samuel Buckner PhD

Samuel Buckner, PhD, is an assistant professor of exercise science at the University of South Florida. Dr. Buckner is director of the University of South Florida Muscle Laboratory. His research group’s primary focus is on skeletal muscle adaptations to resistance exercise. Specifically, the USF Muscle Laboratory is interested in the influence that exercise-induced increases in muscle size have on exercise-induced increases in muscle strength. In addition, the lab studies low-load alternatives to traditional resistance exercise (with and without the application of blood flow restriction), and the applications these methods may have on various populations. Dr. Buckner has published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to reduce the amount of time you spend in the gym
  • Is it harder to grow muscle the more you train?
  • Should you lift with more weight or less?
  • The ideal amount of training to stimulate muscle growth
