What is Neural Drive?

Neural Drive is the term people use commonly when referring to strength gains that don’t accompany muscle growth. Essentially, it refers to an adaptation in which the nervous system is more efficiently communicating with the muscles and is able to produce greater force despite the muscle being the same size. There are a lot of ways we can train to have neural drive, including focusing our training efforts on the underlying principles of neural plasticity.

In the following video I discuss the definition of neural drive, and how you can use it to positively impact your own strength training.
