    so there is no way to get denser muscle at a younger age? are there any supplements that help speed up muscle maturity?

    thats what i was thinking. i dont really know much about bodybuilding and powerlifting but wouldnt training for strength make your muscles more dense?

    i know strength training doesn't get your muscles bigger. if you lifted for strength how else would your muscles get stronger if it didn't get denser? so wouldnt that mean that strength training would get your muscles denser?

    It's all bodyfat percentage and to a lesser extent genetics. Anyone who diets down to the levels that a bodybuilder does for competition and has a good amount of muscle will look "hard." Keep in mind people with defined abs and veins and stuff can be from anywhere from like 5-13% bodyfat, this account for the differences in appearance.

    As I've read in books before, heavy weights for low reps causes denser muscles. High reps are for size basically balloning your muscles up. When doing powerlifting type of stuff like say 3 reps with 80%-90% of your max, this causes your muscles to get dense. By the way this is what is stated in Arnold's book.

    But what he's really talking about in his pictures is all bodyfat percentage. You can train strength as much as you want but the only way you're going to get that look is to have a really low bodyfat percentage. Other than their size, your training style doesn't have much of an effect on what your muscles look like.

    heavy lifting believe it or not does create a "harder" look when even at rest

    also, tempo matters

    Maybe im wrong here, but youre going to look more "Dense" if you are holding less water. Thus, drying out. Idk, its that and low bodyfat i guess. haha

    no.. training low reps is more taxing then higher reps (8+). Also when doing training for strength your moving max weights on the basic movements which by nature, stress the body.

    so it's the same rules as training for size? around 2 days of rest?

    can you explain strength training please? if it doesn't rip the muscle how does the muscle get stronger?

    it does rip the muscle, its a different kind of hypertrophy though.

    Rules.. well there are no real rules but there are some guidelines,

    take these exercises and spread them over JUST 3 or 4 days.. 3 being ALOT better in my experience

    row
    squat
    deadlift
    bench
    military press
    bb curl
    chin/pullups
    dips

    trying to add weight to each or reps to each every time you do them

    i suggest checking out ironaddicts.com and read a lot. don't ask stupid questions there though lol

    doing low reps 1-6 is like going to failure, it hits your systems hard particularly the central nervous system, check out this http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=1715261

    The boxer looks as if he is dry from his body holding no water. You can try working Fast Twitch muscles within the 5-8 rep range

    i remember i think "jasondb" or someone doing a video about this. you can look it up if you want. Theres two types of muscle fibers, 1 and 2. It might be the other way around but what i remember, 1 is the more compact and denser muscle and comes from strength training but is a lot slower to achieve size with. Then type 2 is hypertrophy and the puffy/bigger ones.

    Its been a long ass time since ive seen this video, so might be wrong

    heavier weights give u myofibrillar hypertrophy, which is that denser look. what you should do is train with both high and low reps for optimal size and density

    @3 above, OP posted this in 2009. He is probably huge now and has his muscles "dense" already...
