    True, hadn't though of it that way...oddly, I always think of the myo-rest-pause-ey stuff as the for the weak part, like it really lets you get a lot of good reps in a short time, and regular sets...

    ok good points
    Just to note though, I don't consider these 'intense' sets, I use the same 'effort' per se as I would with 3-4 normal sets, just do a set, 1-2 RIR, rest 20 seconds, do more reps, rest...

    I use something similar, and track it in my logs (I'm that way too, I have every rep of every workout in notebooks all the way back to 1986 or so). Back in the 90's, long before myo-reps were...

    I agree on all points
    no way I'm doing a 3 hour workout, e-freaken-gads, no thanks.

    I guess the difference is, sarcoplasmic 'hypertrophy' isn't going to fade overnight where you have to 'pump up' , pumping up of course pumps you up 'more' but sarcoplasm is a protein, some mistake it...

    Greg did a great job of summarizing and explaining IMO.
    1) Some studies have seen fibril ratio increase that = more actin/myosin growth compared to sarcoplasmic protein increases
    2) Some have seen...

    It's so individual, I really can't recommend, no one really can. It depends so much on your body mechanics and exercise performance, and even response to the movements. I hate to say but it's also a...
