    looks of myofibrillar hypertrophy and sarcoplasmic hypertrophy

    do myofibrillar hypertrophy and sarcoplasmic hypertrophy really look that different? would you be able to tell the difference and if so, how would you?

    EDIT: i'd like to add in another question - do you train for either? or do you just train?

    myofibrillar is the one where there is an increase in protein content of the muscle fibers, while sarcoplasmic is an increase in the volume of sarcoplasm.. non-contractile muscle cell fluid.

    (hope i got those definitions right!)

    interesting article.... and full of scientific details i have a hard time understanding lol. i was wondering because lyle mcdonald said in UD2 that "guys who train with heavy intense loads (tension training) have muscles with a difference visual quality than guys who only train with high reps and short rest intervals (pump training). that is, powerlifters who almost exclusively use tension training look different than the guys who use only pump training. even bodybuilders like dorian yates, who train with heavy loads, just look denser than the guys who just pump the muscle endlessly."

    I've heard that many times too, but I can't see a difference.
