Abstract: We identify two sufficient conditions for locally finite Borel measures on $ \mathbb{R}^n$ to give full mass to a countable family of Lipschitz images of $ \mathbb{R}^m$. The first condition, extending a prior result of Pajot, is a sufficient test in terms of $ L^p$ affine approximability for a locally finite Borel measure $ \mu $ on $ \mathbb{R}^n$ satisfying the global regularity hypothesis

$\displaystyle \limsup _{r\downarrow 0} \mu (B(x,r))/r^m <\infty$$\displaystyle \quad \text {at $\mu $-a.e.~$x\in \mathbb{R}^n$}$

to be $ m$-rectifiable in the sense above. The second condition is an assumption on the growth rate of the 1-density that ensures a locally finite Borel measure $ \mu $ on $ \mathbb{R}^n$ with

$\displaystyle \lim _{r\downarrow 0} \mu (B(x,r))/r=\infty$$\displaystyle \quad \text {at $\mu $-a.e.~$x\in \mathbb{R}^n$}$

is 1-rectifiable.
