Sounds compelling. Do you think it's worth doing in a calorific defecit? Seems to put the LG RPT method of training to shame.

8 sets on a diet would destroy most people.

You can get away with a LOT over short periods of time.

That makes two of us. The study completely failed to describe that part of the program.

I know this is a strength study but also wrt hypertrophy does this sort of suggest the usual 'hardgainer' guidelines of low volume/high intensity/high frequency training is backwards?

There seems to be better training effect from higher volume for 'low responders'.

Based on what the strength gains there is little doubt the same would apply for hypertrophy. Even more so for naturals who will struggle to gain size without progressive loading regimes.
