The answer to this is C. This is the process by which muscles grow to be bigger than usual. There are some people who try to learn more about this because they would like to increase the growth of muscle cells. This can be done by exercising more and doing a series of weight training to improve muscle growth.

One of the most common ways to increase muscle growth is by lifting weights. There are some who may start with small weights in the beginning; then they would increase the weight in the long run. This will also allow them to build bigger and stronger muscles.

The state in which a muscle grows is called muscle hypertrophy. Hypertrophy is caused by two contributing factors: sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, which focuses on increased glycogen storage in the muscles, and myofibrillar hypertrophy, which focuses on increased size of myofibrils. Hypertrophy is most commonly simulated through exercise and regular exertion in athletes, including both strength training and anaerobic training.

Regular repetitions of such forms of training can increase the volume of muscle cells and cause muscles to grow. These changes occur because they are the body’s way of adapting to prevent fatigue in the future and help the muscles to generate more force. Hypertrophy is generally seen as a desirable result in athletes and bodybuilders alike, and is achieved through regularly increasing weights and/or repetitions.
