Tired of the generic "bro" hypertrophy program?

We've taken the best available scientific evidence for building muscle and we've created a training program that will maximize your hard work in the gym for growing muscle.

This is not a set it and forget it template from some jacked dude at the gym

When you join Hypertrophy Lab you'll gain full access to Kabuki Strength Coaches and the wealth of knowledge and experience they bring to building the best athletes in the world.

Your Kabuki Coaches will be in the grind with you each day motivating you to train harder and helping you tailor the team experience to your own needs.

When you join Hypertrophy Lab you'll never have to muster up the energy to follow the same old repetitive 3x10 program that is pervasive across pop culture of bodybuilding. Hypertrophy Lab is a progress phasic approach to hypertrophy training which allows you to narrow your focus block to block to maximize your performance.

Building muscle is a long term mission, so let's get started today!

The Death of Boring Training
We've all been there. We've all suffered through the popular bodybuilding program that recommends 3x10 across the board for all exercises. You won't find that with Hypertrophy Lab. Not only does the program follow the best evidence for building muscle it also combines the wealth of experience of actually walking the walk. Stop suffering needlessly through boring training.

Progressive Phasic Hypertrophy Design
Progressive = continuous simulative overload. The bread and butter of building muscle. Phasic = focused intentional efforts to maximize the targeted muscles and movements. Hypertrophy Lab was designed to build upon itself block after block to ensure you are constantly growing throughout the year.

We aren't talking about the "dreamer bulk" that forces you to eat everything available to grow. We'll teach you the intelligent approach to nutrition for supporting maximum muscle growth.

FAQs
I'm a hard gainer. Will this program work for me?
Our coaches aren't genetic freaks. We've had to grind to get to where we are and we know what it takes to build muscle whether you are an experienced trainee or a light weight hard gainer who struggles to pack on size.
I'm a Powerlifter. Can this program work for me?
Hypertrophy Lab is an excellent place for a Powerlifter to park themselves during a long off-season. More muscle doesn't immediately make you stronger but it sure makes it easier to become stronger.
I train in my garage. Can I make this program work with my equipment?
Absolutely! Our Coaches and your teammates will be eager to help you find solutions to work around any equipment restrictions you might have.
What do I do if I can only commit to 3-4 days per week in the gym?
While this team was designed to train 4-5 days per week its easy to modify the program to fit your lifestyle and schedule.
