Effects of drop set resistance training on acute stress indicators and long-term muscle hypertrophy and strength. - PubMed - NCBI


RESULTS: Both groups showed significant increases in triceps muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) (10.0 ± 3.7%, effect size (ES) = 0.47 for DS and 5.1 ± 2.1%, ES = 0.25 for NS).

CONCLUSIONS: Superior muscle gains might be achieved with a single set of DS compared to 3 sets of conventional RT, probably due to higher stress experienced in the DS protocol.
