The experiment revealed that weightlifting strengthens the nervous system through a motor tract called reticulospinal tract, weeks before any muscle is added.

“Strength isn’t just about muscle mass," co-author Isabel Glover, a researcher at Newcastle University, tells Inverse. "When you start lifting weights, you get stronger because the neural input to your muscles increases. It’s only a few weeks later that the muscles themselves start to get bigger."
