I was just thinking about this, I lift to lose weight and get strong. Hypertrophy isn’t a specific goal of mine, but I had a thought. The way I lift I do 5x3, 8x3, 10x3, and this is keeping me strong and getting stronger. I see no hypertrophy, but the muscle I have is a lot more dense then it was. So I would say my lifting is geared towards strength but it is increasing my muscle density. (I may be wrong if so please correct me.)
So if my ultimate goal is weight loss and strength should I focus more on hypertrophy or muscle density? I am thinking having bigger muscles is gonna burn more calories then having denser muscles. Is that the right way to think of it? I was just pondering this today. If anyone has any idea on this please let me know. I tried to search for this on the site but I think search is broke or something it kept saying 0 results even when I just typed in weight training.
