DJDaddyK - single set stuff

Post by Ryan A » Tue Jun 06, 2006 3:44 pm

I happened to look at the old forum and this was one of the last things posted over there and James linked to this on this very site. I thought you would find it helpful.

Thanks Ryan. I actually think that is the very page I was quoting stuff from (ie "More [than 1] sets may elicit slightly greater strength gains but additional improvement is relatively small.") But then several folks (I think including you? lol) said the guidelines were updated and now recommend more sets for intermediate or advanced lifters. I found one such "position stand" here:

Is this pretty much what you were getting at? I'm not sure exactly what you were pointing me to. Sorry if I missed your point...

ACSM Position Stand Outline

This ACSM Position Stand has been outlined on ExRx.net below the original ACSM Gudelines shortly after its release. It is a supplement to the original guidelines.

Yeah, if you scroll down past the 1995 guidelines, there are some for 2005.

I guess it doesnt say explicitly to do more than 1 set but it does discuss rest between sets so it implies more sets.

I went back to the old board from the posted link, found a thread not too far down on it with a link to the exrx info. and it listed the 2002 update, below the 1995 version, which did go into periodization, etc, etc, and cited reasons for more sets, for TRAINED,EXPERIENCED lifters. It also (in the 2002 version) cited that the original recommendations were based on studies done with novice, untrained lifters.
