    Mechanical load increases muscle IGF-I and androgen receptor mRNA concentrations in humans.

    The mechanism(s) of load-induced muscle hypertrophy is as yet unclear, but increasing evidence suggests a role for locally expressed insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). We investigated the effects of concentric (CON) vs. eccentric (ECC) loading on muscle IGF-I mRNA concentration. We hypothesized a greater IGF-I response after ECC compared with CON. Ten healthy subjects (24.4 +/- 0.7 yr, 174.5 +/- 2.6 cm, 70.9 +/- 4.3 kg) completed eight sets of eight CON or ECC squats separated by 6-10 days. IGF-I, IGF binding protein-4 (IGFBP-4), and androgen receptor (AR) mRNA concentrations were determined in vastus lateralis muscle by RT-PCR before and 48 h after ECC and CON. Serum total testosterone (TT) and IGF-I were measured serially across 48 h, and serum creatine kinase activity (CK), isometric maximum voluntary contraction (MVC), and soreness were determined at 48 h. IGF-I mRNA concentration increased 62% and IGFBP-4 mRNA concentration decreased 57% after ECC (P < 0.05). Changes after CON were similar but not significant (P = 0.06-0.12). AR mRNA concentration increased (P < 0.05) after ECC (63%) and CON (102%). Serum TT and IGF-I showed little change. MVC fell 10% and CK rose 183% after ECC (P < 0.05). Perceived soreness was higher (P < 0.01) after ECC compared with CON. Results indicate that a single bout of mechanical loading in humans alters activity of the muscle IGF-I system, and the enhanced response to ECC suggests that IGF-I may somehow modulate tissue regeneration after mechanical damage.


    Pretty cool article. Since we know that the hGH-->IGF-1 axis is the main axis for muscle growth, it is nice to see a decrease in binding proteins and an increase in IGF-1. As you can also see, the concentric portions increase androgen receptor count slightly more however. So keep the concentrics explosive and the negatives pretty slow and controlled. Get big .

    Don't see anything about the rep cadence in there. You mind posting that part?

    I gotta tell you I really believe there is truth to this. I have recently been doing some TUT training for the first time in my life (usually I really focus on explosive power because of sport specific reasons) and I have experienced more growth then I really thought possible in a short period of time.
