The Effect of Weekly Set Volume on Strength Gain: A Meta-Analysis | Springer for Research & Development

"Conclusion: This meta-analysis presents additional evidence regarding a graded dose–response relationship between weekly sets performed and strength gain."

"The use of MWS and HWS was more effective than LWS, with LWS producing the smallest pre- to post-training strength difference. For novice and intermediate male trainees, the findings suggest that LWSs do not lead to strength gains compared with MWS or HWS training. For those trainees in the middle ground, not a novice and not advanced, the existing data provide a relationship between weekly sets and strength gain as set configurations produced different pre- to post-training strength increases. For well trained individuals, the use of either MWS or HWS may be an appropriate dose to produce strength gains."
