The language filter exists for a reason (even if I mistakenly triggered it yesterday) and NOT for you to get around it with a * replacing a letter.

Lyle, I know that the study can't answer this question but do you think that staying exclusively in mid-high repetition range 10-12-15 reps will promote growth(hypertrophy) in long term(6-12 months)?

Thanks

So long as progressive overload is applied, why wouldn't it?

Was just browsing this again. It occurred to me that this shows the outcomes of a protocol that resembles the famous German Volume Training. Interesting to see numbers about something with so much hype around it.

Not in the least does it resemble GVT unless you consider

10 sets of 10
and
10 sets of 3

100 vs. 30 repetitions to be somehow comparable.

Which they are not.

GVT was also done at sub worthless intensities. 10X3 was done at high intensities.

They still aren't even remotely similar.

Your right, 7x3 isn't comparable, but I was thinking about the hypertrophy group.

Quote:
I should mention that load equalization had to do with tonnage (sets * reps * load lifted) and not just reps (the strength group did 63 reps per week on each muscle, 21 per workout and the hypertrophy group did 90 reps).
I assumed this meant that the hypertrophy group did 90 reps per week per muscle group. Since in the bodybuilder split each muscle was worked once per week, the workout is 90 reps. What am I missing?

Every time you say German Volume Training, someone like me that was stupid enough to believe it was the be all answer to hypertrophy gets instant DOMS all over our body again.
