The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of single- and multiple-set strength training on hypertrophy and strength gains in untrained men. Twenty-one young men were randomly assigned to either the 3L-1UB group (trained 3 sets in leg exercises and 1 set in upper-body exercises; n = 11), or the 1L-3UB (trained 1 set in leg exercises and 3 sets in upper-body exercises; n = 10). Subjects trained 3 days per week for 11 weeks and each workout consisted of 3 leg exercises and 5 upper-body… Expand
Early phase adaptations of single vs. multiple sets of strength training on upper and lower body strength gains
TLDR
It was concluded that performing three sets of strength training is superior to one set for increasing strength of the knee extensors while single-set training protocols for the elbow flexors might be sufficient for untrained individuals in the early phases of a strength-training program. Expand
A Comparison of the Effects of Two Resistance Training Programs on Upper and Lower Body Muscle Strength and Endurance in Untrained Women
The purpose of this research was to compare the effects of an 8-week 1-set and 3-set resistance training program on upper and lower body muscle strength and endurance in untrained women. 19 untrainedExpand
Effects of training volume on lower-body muscle strength in untrained young men: a contralateral control study
TLDR
It is indicated that 1 set is as effective as 3 sets for increasing lower-body muscle strength after a short-term RT period (6 weeks) in untrained young men. Expand
Influence of exercise order on upper body maximum and submaximal strength gains in trained men
TLDR
The results suggest that upper body movements should be prioritized and performed according to individual needs to maximize maximal and submaximal strength. Expand
Resistance training for strength and muscle thickness: Effect of number of sets and muscle group trained
TLDR
Single-set training protocols might be sufficient for increasing strength and MT of the elbow flexors and muscle strength of the knee extensors in untrained individuals. Expand
The effect of training volume and intensity on improvements in muscular strength and size in resistance-trained men
TLDR
It appears that high‐intensity resistance training stimulates greater improvements in some measures of strength and hypertrophy in resistance‐trained men during a short‐term training period. Expand
Time course of low- and high-volume strength training on neuromuscular adaptations and muscle quality in older women
TLDR
Results showed that low- and high-volume trainings have a similar adaptation time course in the muscular function of upper-body muscles, however, high- volume training appears to be more efficient for lower- body muscles after 20 weeks of training. Expand
Effects of a 12-Week Modified German Volume Training Program on Muscle Strength and Hypertrophy—A Pilot Study
TLDR
Findings suggest performing >5 sets per exercise does not promote greater gains in muscle strength and hypertrophy, and future research should aim to substantiate these preliminary findings in a larger cohort. Expand
Effects of Single Vs. Multiple Sets Water-Based Resistance Training on Maximal Dynamic Strength in Young Men
TLDR
The data show that the maximal dynamic strength significantly increases in young men after 10 weeks of training in an aquatic environment, although the improvement in the strength levels is independent of the number of sets performed. Expand
Effects of different strength training volumes and subsequent detraining on strength performance in aging adults.
TLDR
In untrained, middle-aged adults, there is an increase in maximal dynamic strength and local muscular endurance, independent of volume chosen, and after 12 weeks detraining, the loss does not decrease to baseline values. Expand

The Influence of Volume of Exercise on Early Adaptations to Strength Training
TLDR
Results show a superior adaptation to 3-set strength training, compared with 1-setstrength training, in leg exercises but not in upper-body exercises during the early phase of adaptation. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest superior strength gains occurred following 3-set strength training compared with single- set strength training in women with basic experience in resistance training. Expand

The data from this study suggest that multiple sets produce a greater increase in percentage strength gain for a simple exercise. Expand

One set of high intensity resistance training was as effective as three sets for increasing KEXT and KFLEX isometric torque and muscle thickness in previously untrained adults. Expand
Effects of Single vs. Multiple Sets of Weight Training: Impact of Volume, Intensity, and Variation
This study examined the effects of a single set of weight training exercise to failure and 2 multiple-set protocols (not to failure) on the 1-RM parallel squat. Forty-three men were randomly assignedExpand
Three Sets of Weight Training Superior to 1 Set With Equal Intensity for Eliciting Strength
TLDR
It is demonstrated that for recreationally trained individuals using DUP training, 3 sets of training are superior to 1 set for eliciting maximal strength gains. Expand
Effects of maximal effort strength training with different loads on dynamic strength, cross-sectional area, load-power and load-velocity relationships
TLDR
In conclusion, training with loads of 15% and 35% of 1RM resulted in an increase in 1RM, and the high correlation between 1RM and maximal power at load 2.5 kg also would indicate that maximal strength is important for performance at light loads. Expand
Single versus multiple sets in long-term recreational weightlifters.
TLDR
The results show that one-set programs are still effective even after a year of training and that increasing training volume over 13 wk does not lead to significantly greater improvements in fitness for adult recreational weight lifters. Expand

TLDR
Progression in power training entails two general loading strategies: strength training and use of light loads performed at a fast contraction velocity with 3-5 min of rest between sets for multiple sets per exercise (three to five sets). Expand
