overuse of a muscle can cause it to become fatigued and can lead to microtrauma and inflammation. To prevent this, we typically use what is known as the "taper". This is a gradual decrease in the amount of work we do over the course of a training cycle in order to preserve and rebuild the muscle. When performed properly, this can amplify the growth hormone response, improve muscle recovery and allow us to train harder and longer without overreaching.
