So the booty muscle growth occurs whenever the rate of muscle protein synthesis is greater than the rate of muscle protein breakdown (Protein synthesis means protein production).
This adaption, however, does not happen while you actually lift the weights. Instead, it occurs while you rest.
So how do you actually add muscle to your booty muscle cells?
Well to muscle to the booty muscle cells, satellite cells come in and act like stem cells for your butt muscles.
When activated, they help to add more nuclei to the muscle cells and therefore contribute directly to the growth of myofibrils (muscle cells).
Activating these satellite cells may be the difference between what allows those ladies with good “genetic” to grow massive glute muscles and the others hard glute gainers.
A recent study on muscle growth triggers, showed that those who were “extreme responders” to muscle growth, with an incredible 58% myofiber hypertrophy from an exercise, had 23% activation of their satellite cells.
While the modest responders, who had a 28% growth, had 19% activation of their satellite cells.
What is interesting to note, though, is that some people known as “non-responders” in the study had 0% growth and had a concurrent 0% activation of their satellite cells.
Therefore, it seems the more you can activate these satellite glute cells, the more you’ll be able to grow.
So then the question comes, how do you activate these satellite glute cells to increase butt muscle growth?
How to Activate Glutes (3 Mechanisms That Brings About Booty Muscles to Grow)
Underlying all progression of natural muscle growth is the ability to continually put more stress on the muscles.
This stress is a major component involved in the growth of a muscle and disrupts homeostasis within your body. The stress and subsequent disruption in homeostasis causes 3 main mechanisms that spur muscle growth.
Here are the 3 main mechanisms that spike muscle growth.
#1. Muscle Tension
In order to create muscle growth on your booty, you have to apply a load of stress greater than what your glute muscles had previously adapted to. How do you do this? The main way achieve this is to lift progressively heavier weights.
This additional tension on the muscle helps to cause changes in the chemistry of the muscle, allowing for growth factors that include motor activation and satellite cell activation.
Muscular tension also most dramatically effects the connection of the motor units with the muscle cells.
This why it is much easier to gain massive butt quickly is if you go to the Gym that at home.
But if workout at home you can still make do with heavy object you have at home or buy so workout equipment.
Two other factors help to explain why some people can be stronger, but not as big as other people.
#2. Muscle Damage
If you’ve ever felt sore after a workout, you have experienced the localized muscle damage from working out.
