The first level covers the basics: you need to lift and eat protein. Level 2 goes one layer deeper covering progressive overload and daily protein intake (how much protein per day?). Level 3 covers effort, training volume, intensity, exercise selection and frequency. Level 4 gets more granular, describing exactly what causes muscle growth through a critical evaluation of the three-factor model (mechanical tension, muscle damage and metabolic stress). On this level, we address questions like "what role does soreness play in hypertrophy?" and "how much is the pump driving muscle growth?" Level 5 is a deep dive into the biochemistry of muscle growth: the physiological impacts of tension, amino acids (leucine, EAAs) and testosterone. 0:00 - Introducing the levels 0:30 - Level 1: Noob 1:25 - Level 2: Novice 4:23 - Level 3: Average 10:03 - Level 4: Elite 15:50 - Level 5: Pro - References: Total Daily Protein Target: 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28698222/ 🤍🤍ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5828430/ Training Volume: 🤍🤍strongerbyscience.com/the-new-approach-to-training-volume/ Training Intensity: 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29564973/ Training Frequency: 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30558493/ Rest Periods: 🤍🤍youtube.com/watch?v=NR94rNsArv0 Tempo: 🤍🤍youtube.com/watch?v=TQxMvpe2lQ8 Intensity Techniques: 🤍🤍youtube.com/watch?v=Ri0v5-osLCQ Mechanisms of Muscle Hypertrophy: 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20847704/ Muscle Damage: 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30335577/ 🤍pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29282529/ *Footnote on Metabolic Stress: While I personally think it makes the most sense, it actually isn't perfectly clear if shorter rest periods do in fact increase metabolic stress compared to longer rest periods. For example, this study (🤍sites.kowsarpub.com/asjsm/articles/57500.html) found that blood lactate levels increased similarly during a full-body workout when resting either 30, 60, or 120 seconds between sets. Still, since this study only measured lactate levels and not H+, hypoxia, phosphate, etc. I think the assumption that shorter rest periods would lead to more metabolic stress (via increased fatigue) is nonetheless a reasonable assumption in the absence of direct empirical data. *Footnote on BFR: Some might argue that BFR does actually enhance muscle hypertrophy, however, if that effect exists, metabolic stress hasn't been shown to be the main causative factor. Plus, BFR only seems to augment hypertrophy if the training methods are suboptimal (both light weights and far from failure).

I'm ready for level 7
Woah… like always… there’s always new things to learn about. Thanks, this really open a new view that I need to constantly learn to better my physique.
i need a summary of the video!
Absolutely fantastic solid, easy-to-digest work! much appreciated!
Damn good Job and the thank you so much for this video! Love you
lvl 6 baby, great stuff Jeff, cheers!
I’m ready for level six that was very interesting
i'm lost by the beginning of 5
You lost me at Pro. Great video though!
Coming back to finish. Have to get to work. Extremely informative and will be sharing with any new lifter. Oh and subscribed my guy, keep it up 🤙
ive got a lot of work to do but im ready to start!!!!
am ready for lvl 6
I’d just like to say thank you, your videos are amazing! Detailed and simple worded for understanding . Science backed and not just “fitness influencer” bs.
Thank you so much ! I am learning so much from you!
I made it to Elite, but got lost twice. The second time I stayed lost. So, not ready for level 6.
I began lifting weights again about 2 months ago, i do full body 3 times a week, on wednesday, friday and sunday, 12 sets per day per muscle group.so/ group.So 36 sets per week per muscle,i was making solid progress but my biggest problem is inflamation, i currently am dealing with a tennis elbow, the same issue why i stopped working out a couple of years ago, now i have to add that i suffer from crohns illness so, i can't eat 4-5 times a day, and i have lost about 70 cm of small intestine due to my illness, so food intake is less because of that, but i do my shakes 2 times a day, you got any advice for me?
i see. i lift for 2 month or so parallel to my martial arts. i started to get more serious. finally cutting from bad behaviors like sugar and stuff. this helped me a lot to understand how muscle growth works. slowly building up the reps. i work out 3 times a week with 2 days in the dojo between. i also work out the full body everytime. hopefully with proper food and a strict selfwritten workoutplan( with exercices that are fitting my style and focusing on several bodyparts) i finally starting to get serious and see my muscle grow. ultimate bodybuilding is not my goal after all. thx very much for the video i helped me a lot, and well i dont careif nobody cares lol
Im ready for level 6
Lost me at level 4 and 3 was the one I learned the most from. Thanks man.
I’m ready for level 6
