With the purpose of manipulating training stimuli, several techniques have been employed to resistance training. Two of the most popular techniques are the pre-exhaustion (PRE) and priority system (PS). PRE involves exercising the same muscle or muscle group to the point of muscular failure using a single-joint exercise immediately before a multi-joint exercise (e.g., peck-deck followed by chest press). On the other hand, it is often recommended that the complex exercises should be performed…

The effects of pre-exhaustion, exercise order, and rest intervals in a full-body resistance training intervention.

In conclusion, PreEx training offers no greater benefit to performing the same exercises with rest between them compared with exercises performed in an order that prioritises compound movements.

Comparison Between Pre-Exhaustion and Traditional Exercise Order on Muscle Activation and Performance in Trained Men.

The results suggest that exercise order decreases repetitions performed, however, neuromuscular fatigue, lactate, and RPE are not impacted.

Exercise order affects the total training volume and the ratings of perceived exertion in response to a super-set resistance training session

It is suggested that HQ exercise order involving lower limbs may benefit practitioners interested in reaching a higher total training volume with lower ratings of perceived exertion compared with the leg extension plus leg curl order.

Effects of Pre-exhaustion on the Patterns of Muscular Activity in the Flat Bench Press

Coaches should not expect the usefulness of PE protocol to elicit higher PM or AD activity or fatigue, but they can use it to increase TB activity before high-intensity BP exercise.

Neuromuscular and metabolic responses of the pre-exhaustion method in highly-trained individuals

The PERT was more effective, producing greater metabolic stress, demonstrating to be a high-intensity method that leads to muscle adaptation and lactate accumulation was significantly higher in PERT when compared CRT.

Effects of Pre-exhaustion Versus Traditional Resistance Training on Training Volume, Maximal Strength, and Quadriceps Hypertrophy

The PreEx training can decrease the total training volume while maintaining results in strength and hypertrophy when comparing to TRT, however, TRT may be optimal if the goal is to decrease fat mass.

Effects of Resistance Exercise Order on the Number of Repetitions Performed to Failure and Perceived Exertion in Untrained Young Males

The results of the current study in adolescents suggest that the main exercises should be performed at the beginning of the RT session, and pairwise comparisons did not indicate significant differences between the same exercises performed in different sequences.

Potential Role of Pre-Exhaustion Training in Maximizing Muscle Hypertrophy: A Review of the Literature

The RELEVANT LITERATURE REGARDing the EFFICACY of PE for POTENTIATING OVERLOAD and MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY is discussed.

Effect of the manipulation of exercise order in the tri-set training system

The results suggest that in the tri-set system the higher number of repetitions and a greater training volume occur when the single-Joint exercise is included before multiple-joint exercises.

INFLUENCE OF EXERCISE ORDER IN A RESISTANCE‐TRAINING EXERCISE SESSION

It is shown that performing the squat exercise after a whole-body workout session may result in greater power output if the squat is preceded by a power exercise (i.e., hang pull), due to postactivation potentiation.

INFLUENCE OF EXERCISE ORDER ON THE NUMBER OF REPETITIONS PERFORMED AND PERCEIVED EXERTION DURING RESISTANCE EXERCISES

Performing exercises of both the large- and the small-muscle groups at the end of an exercise sequence resulted in significantly fewer repetitions in the 3 sets of an Exercise sequence.

Manipulating Exercise Order Affects Muscular Performance During a Resistance Exercise Training Session

Fatigue rate and TF for the bench press were substantially decreased when single-jointed exercises preceded structural ones and greater when structural exercises (multijointed) were done first.

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).

Manipulating Resistance Training Program Variables to Optimize Maximum Strength in Men: A Review

Maximum strength is the capacity to generate force within an isometric contraction. It is a valuable attribute to most athletes because it acts as a general base that supports specific training in

A well-rounded training program including aerobic and resistance training, and flexibility exercises is recommended, and a sliding scale as to the amount of time allotted and intensity of effort should be carefully gauged for the cardiorespiratory, muscular strength and endurance, and flexible components of the program.

Vastus lateralis fatigue alters recruitment of musculus quadriceps femoris in humans.

Results suggest that subjects were able to perform the second bout of KEE with little contribution of the VL by greater use of the other QF muscles, suggesting the simplest explanation is increased central command to the QF such that the intended act could be accomplished despite acute fatigue of one of its synergists.

Voluntary activation of human quadriceps during and after isokinetic exercise.

It is concluded that brief high-intensity dynamic exercise can cause a considerable failure of voluntary activation, and this failure was most marked during isometric and the lower-velocity isokinetic contractions.

Neural Control of Force Output During Maximal and Submaximal Exercise

It is proposed that neural strategies exist to maintain muscle reserve, and inhibit exercise activity before any irreparable damage to muscles and organs occurs, and that fatigue is probably not a physiological entity, but rather a sensory manifestation of these neural regulatory mechanisms.
