Examples of increased muscle hypertrophy are seen in various professional sports , mainly strength related sports such as boxing , olympic weightlifting , mixed martial arts , rugby , professional wrestling and various forms of gymnastics . Athletes in other more skill-based sports such as basketball , baseball , ice hockey , and soccer may also train for increased muscle hypertrophy to better suit their position of play.
